Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Portland, Oregon

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a specific type of psychotherapy that is different from traditional “talk therapy.”  A few key differences are that CBT is research-based, more structured, and and more goal-directed than other types of therapies.  If you are looking for more of a “hands on” or an active approach, CBT might be a good fit for you.

More About CBT

CBT is one of the few types of psychotherapy that has been scientifically tested and found to be effective for many different issues people struggle with. In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, CBT tends to be more focused on the present, more time-limited, and more focused on problem-solving.  Clients also learn specific psychological skills that they can use for the rest of their lives.

Studies have shown that CBT is as useful as medications for many issues and can often be better in the long term, especially for preventing relapse of symptoms. There is also lots of evidence that for many issues when a client receives CBT in addition to medication, they tend to have better outcomes than those that use medications only.
