Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a specialized form of psychotherapy. Pacific CBT therapists utilize standard counseling skills that all therapists are trained to provide. In addition to these techniques, they offer the additional components of cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT therapists provide active listening and empathy coupled with teaching skills to help their clients identify the factors that maintain their presenting concerns and the skills and coping strategies to overcome these factors. Pacific CBT therapists strive to help their clients become their own therapist.
