Frequently Asked Questions

Cognitive behavioral counseling is a mental health treatment that helps clients learn skills to identify, question, and replace negative thoughts and behaviors whenever they occur. Therapists use this method to help people better handle their feelings, emotions, interactions, and self-talk whenever they encounter personal interferences outside the therapy.

As indicated above, CBT counseling can treat the broadest range of mental health conditions, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, insomnia, and psychosis. Some people also use cognitive behavioral therapy counseling to help them deal with long-term medical conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome. Nevertheless, according to other authorities, CBT counseling may not be appropriate for those with brain disorders, head trauma, or other difficulties that affect thinking.

The primary goal of cognitive counseling or CBT counseling is to offer clients the tools they require to modify their behavior by learning to recognize and replace their negative thought patterns. Furthermore, cognitive therapy counseling can help persons learn to stay aware of the harmful effects attributed to negative thoughts. Thus using CBT, clients can learn how to

  • Identify harmful thoughts and emotions when they occur,
  • Replace those negative thoughts and feelings with positive thoughts
  • It helps clients practice putting “therapy in motion.”

Anyone can benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy counseling, but it is most beneficial to those with specific issues they need to address. Few of the issues that this cognitive therapy counseling for anxiety can help a person manage to include the following-

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Alcohol abuse & addiction

Cognitive counseling or CBT counseling for anxiety includes a variety of methods and strategies that target our attitudes, feelings, and actions. These consist of self-help techniques as well as organized psychotherapies. Several particular therapeutic modalities that incorporate cognitive behavioral counseling include:

  • The main goals of cognitive therapy counseling are to recognize and alter incorrect or distorted thought processes, emotional reactions, and behaviors.
  • Incorporating therapeutic techniques like emotional control and mindfulness, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) targets harmful or distressing ideas and behaviors.
  • Multimodal treatment contends that seven distinct but related modalities—behavior, affect, sensation, imagery, cognition, interpersonal factors, and drug/biological considerations—must be addressed to treat psychological problems effectively.
  • Identifying illogical beliefs, aggressively challenging these beliefs, and finally learning to recognize and alter these thought patterns are all part of rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT).
  • Although various forms of cognitive behavioral therapy counseling exist, they all aim to change the ingrained thought patterns that cause psychological suffering.

We accept many major commercial insurance plans for cognitive counseling, including Aetna, Amerihealth, Cigna, Optum Health, United Healthcare, Tricare, and others.

While many practices accept only self-pay clients or out-of-network benefits, at Lifebulb, we aim to keep your costs low by accepting most major insurance plans.

At Lifebulb, we are extremely picky about who we hire to help you achieve your cognitive behavioral therapy counseling goals.

At Lifebulb, our biggest difference lies in our therapists. Many practices, large and small, often put growing businesses before growing people. It may sound simple, but at Lifebulb, we treat our therapists like valuable people that provide a valuable service. What does that mean for our clients? While we believe therapists and counselors, regardless of where they work, do their best for their clients, we've found that therapists who genuinely enjoy where they work are able to provide the best cognitive therapy counseling for disorders to those they help. To that end, our primary goal at Lifebulb is to provide our therapists with the best possible environment in which to operate. In doing so, we believe Lifebulb clients are best positioned to accomplish their therapy goals through in-person counseling or virtual CBT counseling.

At Lifebulb, we are extremely selective about the therapists we hire because we know choosing the right therapist can make all the difference in our clients reaching their goals. Our therapists are all educated at the masters level and above and have received several years of hands-on training before becoming fully licensed clinicians. Even among the pool of highly trained therapists, we only work with those who align with our core values. That way, we know your therapist will go the extra mile to help you and offer the best CBT counseling online or in-person counseling.

Lifebulb has several locations for providing in-person cognitive counseling and is adding more regularly. We also provide telehealth or online CBT counseling session services for those who may live distant from our offices.

All our counselors are highly educated and trained and have received their full clinical licensure from practicing counseling. We also thoroughly interview each of our therapists, ensure that they pass a background check, and train them in-house to work with us. Additionally, we ensure that each of our counselors and therapists participates in ongoing education to continue to provide the best in-person cognitive therapy counseling for anxiety and online CBT counseling services possible.

It is important that our clients work with the best possible fit as a therapist for their cognitive behavioral therapy counseling. This is why we provide detailed bios of our therapists for our clients to review before reaching out to us. If you have a specific therapist in mind to work with, we would be happy to schedule you to see them. We also understand that our clients don't always match perfectly with their therapist, and in the case of a less-than-great fit, we will help you to find the right match among our team and, if necessary, provide the best referral we can to someone more suited to help you beyond our walls.

A professional counselor is a master- or PhD-level mental health professional approved by a state licensure board to diagnose and treat mental health disorders. The exact name of a professional counselor's license can vary by state, but some of the most common are: Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC).

We do employ licensed clinical psychologists, as psychologists can offer services, such as best online cognitive counseling services and psychological testing, that many other license types are unable to offer. Many times, your counselor or therapist can work in tandem with a psychologist to provide cognitive therapy counseling for anxiety and psychological testing when necessary to better provide for your specific needs or goals. In this way, we are able to better provide for a wider range of your needs.
