Psychotherapy/Counseling

Psychotherapy in our clinic is usually done by our clinical psychologist, Dr. Phil Brown. Psychotherapy here is based on the cognitive-behavioral model.  Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a blend of Cognitive Therapy and Behavioral Therapy.  Cognitive Therapy focuses on the challenging negative thought patterns in order to alter unwanted behaviors or treat mood disorders.  Behavioral Therapy focuses on a person's actions and aims to change the unhealthy behavior patterns.  The combination of these two approaches gives the patient both understanding and a plan of action to address the thoughts and behaviors causing problems.

For more information, please see  http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/psychotherapies/index.shtml.  This website is the National Institute of Mental Health and discusses how CBT is used with patients with particular diagnoses.
