Cognitive and
Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Therapy examines the way you think. The basis of Cognitive Therapy is events we experience in our lives automatically trigger thoughts. These are thoughts about ourselves, other people, and the world in general. These thoughts are formed from our past learning, our temperament, and the ways we have created memories of how we fit with others and the world.

The automatic thoughts then trigger feelings. This thought and feeling connection literally becomes our mental maps, or guide, to how we think and behave. Sometimes these maps help us. Other times these maps literally make us stuck.

If you want to move forward in your life, you must first effectively change your mind maps. Cognitive Therapy will help you discover what has been holding you back. In other words discover the reasons why you may over eat, stay overly stressed or angry, or why you may feel anxious and depressed.

Once you know what is holding you back, you can take a different road. Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy provides specific and research based techniques to help you walk the path you want to walk.

Dr Stowe-Myer has had extensive training in Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies. She uses research based and effective techniques to help people facilitate life changes.
