Based on the idea that we can make permanent changes in the way we behave by shifting our negative patterns of thinking, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT for short) is short-term and goal-oriented. The therapist and patient work together to identify the behaviors the patient wants to change and then come up with an action plan to do so.
What to Expect: Sessions are structured and the relationship with the therapist can be more “business-like” than in other kinds of therapy. In other words, the patient and therapist will work together to identify and change problematic patterns of thinking and behaving. The patient is given “homework,” which consists of keeping a record of his or her thoughts, feelings, and behaviors between sessions. At Starpoint Counseling Center, we have licensed and trained therapist that will work with you.
Term of Treatment: Four to seven months, with meetings every one to three weeks. Call or text us at Starpoint Counseling Center (813) 244-1251, to schedule your appointment.
Here at Star Point Counseling we eagerly embrace new beginnings. Many people take the New Year as an opportunity for growth, awareness, and positive behavior changes. We can help you re-evaluate your aspects of your life you are not satisfied with.
We also embrace new beginnings for families with children of all ages. We will help you adjust to having an addition to your family. We know it can turn your entire world around, as you navigate through all the changes that a newborn, blended families, or second marriages which stepparents or stepchildren may bring.
Newness and change are constant in life. Let us help you live the life you deserve, while being able to manage and welcome changes as learning opportunities.
