read moreDepression is one of the most common reasons that people seek psychotherapy. Scientific research has shown that depression is related to inaccurate thinking and maladaptive behavior patterns. Cognitive therapy involves learning skills that allow you to see the connection between thoughts and feelings of sadness and/or depression, to appraise the accuracy of these thoughts, and if they are inaccurate, to make them more accurate. Therapy also involves addressing behavioral patterns that cause and maintain your depression.
