Our Therapeutic Approach
At Start Line Behavioral Health, LLC, our work is generally integrative and collaborative, and our approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). CBT is the leading psychological treatment demonstrated through research to be effective for many mental health concerns including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, trauma, and substance use issues. This approach helps clients overcome current problems, whether they are acute or chronic issues. Treatment plans are customized to meet the needs of each individual client. We primarily focus on the present, while helping clients to understand how earlier life experiences, events, and relationships may still be influencing their thoughts, behaviors, and feelings today. CBT teaches active coping methods that are used in the here-and-now to address current thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Clients learn cognitive and behavioral skills that allow them to deal more effectively with their life circumstances. CBT can be applied to many kinds of problems and can operate within different value systems. If you have a specific concern or issue, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or email. We will be happy to speak with you about your unique issue.
