Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a scientifically-supported treatment for chronic pain and illness, anxiety, depression, sleep, and other issues. CBT helps identify and resolve stressors that trigger flare-ups, and teaches skills to manage and minimize pain after it starts. When combined with other biopsychosocial strategies, CBT can be a very effective treatment for chronic pain.

Treatment can help:

Break the pain cycle
Get your life back
Understand your pain
Learn effective coping skills
Create a pain management plan
Improve fatigue, sleep, and brain fog
Target negative thoughts and beliefs
Reduce reliance on pain medications
Establish meaningful treatment goals
Replace unhelpful behavior patterns
