Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Benefits of CBT for Anxiety
CBT can help you manage your anxiety by teaching you coping skills and providing you the tools to face your fears. CBT has been shown to be effective for treating anxiety disorders like generalized anxiety, social anxiety, and panic disorder. CBT for anxiety starts with identifying and challenging the fear-based thoughts and avoidance behaviors that contribute to anxiety. Once identified, your therapist will work with you to address your symptoms and provide tools to help you manage your anxiety. Once you identify these thoughts and triggers, you’ll work with your therapist to develop coping strategies to manage anxiety symptoms.
