One of the first questions prospective clients often ask me is, "What is CBT for Anxiety?"

CBT for anxiety is active, hands on and emphasizes a problem solving approach to move beyond obstacles. Be prepared to work hard and obtain results. In contrast to traditional talk therapy, you will find less emphasis on the past and more attention placed on what is blocking valued living in your current life.

CBT for anxiety is empirically supported and evidence based. CBT for anxiety continuously incorporates the latest research findings into treatment guidelines in order to provide individuals struggling with anxiety disorders with the most efficacious treatment.

CBT for anxiety is generally short term and strives to empower individuals to become their own anxiety coaches and to decrease reliance on therapists for external support.
