 » Bill Reichle Therapy/Counseling

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic approach that focuses on the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It aims to help individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to their emotional distress or mental health issues. By addressing the underlying cognitive processes, CBT helps individuals develop healthier coping mechanisms and more positive ways of thinking, leading to improved emotional well-being.

CBT is a widely recognized and effective form of therapy that has been extensively studied and proven to be beneficial for various mental health conditions. It helps individuals gain a better understanding of their thoughts and emotions, and how they influence their behaviors. By challenging and restructuring negative thoughts, CBT empowers individuals to develop more adaptive and realistic thinking patterns. Additionally, CBT equips individuals with practical skills and strategies to manage stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges. By focusing on the present and providing practical tools for change, CBT helps individuals achieve long-lasting improvements in their mental health and overall quality of life.
