    What is CBT?

    Collaborative – We work together with you to define your goals, understand the obstacles, and map out the best approach to help you get where you want to go.

    Proactive – During and in-between sessions, we will work with you to practice skills that will help face and master anxiety and depression.

    Accepting – CBT SoCal accepts and affirms the dignity of all persons, and provides services to anyone regardless of race, religion, sexual or gender orientation, body type, or neurodevelopmental make-up.

    Effective –  Many clients experience meaningful and lasting change within a relatively brief number of sessions.
