What is CBT?And what does it stand for? Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a form Psychotherapy. Basically your therapist tries to understand your thoughts, feeling and behavior and help you develop healthier ones.

- Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
- Interpersonal Therapy
