Cognitive Behavioral Therapy addresses the interactions between thoughts, feelings, and behavior. It is likely that someone has previously told you to stop thinking a particular way or feeling the way you do, and it has not worked. Exposure with response prevention begins with changing behavior while restructuring thoughts through a process of identifying evidence for and against your distorted thoughts and forming more balanced beliefs. Through exposure, you are gradually introduced to situations that have previously been avoided because they trigger anxiety. I will support you during this process, and we will eventually confront more and more difficult situations in order to increase your comfort in a number of situations that have been avoided.
