Cognitive Behavior Therapy at Daybreak Psychiatry in Bethesda, Baltimore, Columbia, Ellicott City, Maryland

Cognitive Behavior Associates specializes in a type of psychotherapy called Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). CBT is a group of treatments based on scientific empirical data shown to be effective for a broad range of psychological disorders.

CBT is a method of psychotherapy that involves helping people see how their thoughts and behaviors relate to the way they feel and how this might contribute to their problems. Because everyone is different, each treatment is individualized to the specific patient problem. In each case, we make use of various CBT treatments shown in controlled clinical trials to provide long-lasting results. CBT is generally a time-limited psychotherapy, meaning an individual has appointments over the course of three to six months, with follow-up sessions as needed.

Treatment is goal-oriented, where the therapist and the client work together to develop goals and working step-by-step toward achieving those goals. Clients actively participate in treatment both within and between sessions; e.g., clients are given task assignments to complete between sessions. CBT primarily developed through the merging of two therapies: Cognitive Therapy and Behavior Therapy. This integration of Cognitive and Behavioral practices and theories is then applied as one unified treatment.
