While most therapies can ease depression, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a specialized quicker approach. CBT holds that although depression may stem from many causes; depressed people generally share unrealistically negative patterns of thinking that make it far harder for them to bounce back. Through CBT people can challenge their unrealistic negative thoughts about themselves and find self-esteem, motivation, and productivity in their lives – leading to a sustained happiness.
I can teach you tools to communicate more effectively with each other and to rebuild shattered trust, so that both of you feel heard and respected. As mutual trust and respect grows, both of you will become less quick to misjudge each other’s motives, and quicker to apologize when you’re wrong, or to forgive when your partner errs. I can also help you resolve conflicts that arise from differences in financial, personal, and parenting styles as well as issues with in-laws.
Along with standard Cognitive Behavioral therapy, I’ve been specially trained in a relatively new offshoot, called Cognitive Interpersonal Therapy, which offers particularly powerful techniques for healing relationship conflicts. Using Cognitive Interpersonal Therapy, I can offer you tools for communicating better with others to avoid getting dragged into bruising, blame-filled arguments and instead have constructive conversations that leave you and others feeling more understood and respected.
