Ask @mytherapist "What is cognitive behavioral therapy? Will it help my depression?"


I've been in and out of therapy for years, but my most recent therapist, who I've been with for 3 years, suggested that I try CBT. Now I'm freaking out and feel like I have to start over with a new therapist, and I have no idea how CBT will help me. I've been dealing with anxiety and depression for so long. 

Check out this Tedx video by Dr. David Burns who describes learning CBT and how he started to implement it with his patients struggling with depression, anxiety and self-doubt- something that was so profound for him that he decided to commit his life to it! #therapyworks

MyTherapist New York provides the original style of cognitive behavioral therapy called Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (developed by Albert Ellis, a contemporary of Beck). Got a question for @mytherapist? Send it our way!
