Although Allison's education has included many therapy modalities, she especially finds using cognitive behavioral therapy very useful to work with issues such as depression, anxiety and self esteem. CBT works by helping to challenge negative thought patterns to enable the person to have a realistic, positive self image and break the cycle of negativity in their life. By learning these practical tools, you can achieve positive change.
