CBT Therapy | Orange County

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy refers to a collection of empirically supported treatments dedicated to achieving positive change in your life.

What Is CBT?

The foundational principles and strategies in CBT are drawn from cognitive therapy, behavior therapy and behavior analysis, as well as acceptance and mindfulness-based therapies.

Dr. Yeilding is extensively trained in these strategies which can be applied to a variety of issues. 

Are You Stuck In a Negative Cycle?

The interventions used in CBT are based on the understanding that our thoughts, feelings, physiological response, and behavior all interact with and influence one another. 

In common psychological challenges such as anxiety and depression, clients are often stuck in negative cycles of these components interacting with each other over time. We will work together to collaboratively understand how these cycles generated and have been unintentionally maintained. 


Specific skills will be learned and strategically applied to develop more adaptive and helpful responses and unwind these unhelpful cycles. One example of these skills include learning to identify, evaluate, and shift our thinking patterns in response to stressful events. 

Alternatively, learning to shift your relationship to distressing thoughts and feelings and practice acceptance, mindfulness, and compassion can bring dramatic movement to your stuck points. 

Oftentimes direct behavioral methods will be used to strategically confront and gain confidence in feared and avoided situations.

What To Expect with Cognitive behavioral therapy?


Many outcome studies have demonstrated CBT to be the most effective form of therapy for a variety of issues. 

You will learn the core skills shown to be the most effective for your individualized treatment plan. 

Using these skills and an active, structured approach, we will work together to experiment with new cognitive and behavioral responses to achieve your goals of therapy.

Dr. Yeilding is equipped with the skills needed to guide you through CBT therapy in Orange County.
