Through cognitive processing therapy (CPT) at Trauma Counseling, we can help you learn how to modify and challenge negative thoughts and beliefs that are associated with your childhood or adult trauma. Cognitive processing therapy can help you reduce the destructive effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in your life.
Whether you are dealing with child abuse, military combat, rape, a death, or a natural disaster, we can help you break through the barrier of mental and emotional turmoil and reclaim your life.

Our trained professionals can help you find the peace and well being that you desire.
How Does Cognitive Processing Therapy Help You?
In cognitive processing therapy, we work with you over the course of 12 sessions. During this time, we help you learn how to identify, challenge, and change the negative thoughts, beliefs, and patterns that have plagued your mind since your trauma.
While it is perfectly normal to feel the way you do, you may also have noticed how this negativity has affected your life. You may feel imprisoned by the weight of your thoughts and emotions. Once you become more aware of the connection between the trauma and what is currently going on inside you, then we can help you develop a plan for overcoming it and healing from the past.
What Are Automatic Thoughts?
Automatic thoughts are thoughts or feelings that occur when you associate something with your trauma. An event, sight, or sound may trigger your thoughts or emotions instantly. Thus, the feelings continue the cycle of the PTSD symptoms. Through cognitive processing therapy, we can help you address these thoughts.
You can discuss the event, how it happened, and the impact that it has had on you. That impact is what we will explore, i.e., your automatic thoughts. Through a series of questions, answers, and discovery, we can slowly begin to help you question these thoughts and deal with them so that you can transition into more positives and begin to heal.
