About Us

Why Healing Roots Therapy?

We believe therapy should be:


A place where clients can share their most challenging experiences, feelings and thoughts in order to heal.


The ability to make decisions that are best for emotional and mental well-being come from the trust created within a relationship built on transparency.


When we replace judgment with curiosity we provide space for understanding. When we can understand what we are feeling, thinking or experiencing we empower ourselves to make the changes we want in our life.

Questions About CBT

CBT involves identifying distorted or negative thought patterns and then challenging and changing these thoughts through various strategies. Techniques include cognitive restructuring, exposure exercises, and skill-building. Sessions are usually structured, and homework may be assigned for practice.
CBT is a versatile form of therapy that has proven effective for various mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, and more. However, the suitability should be discussed with a healthcare provider or your therapist for a tailored treatment plan.
Yes. CBT often involves homework assignments or exercises you’ll need to complete outside your therapy sessions. These may include tracking thoughts, exposure tasks, or practicing new skills.
The timeline for results varies from person to person and depends on the complexity of the issues you’re dealing with. Some people report improvements after just a few sessions, but more enduring changes usually take time and consistent effort.
Both options are available. Online CBT can be effective and offer the convenience of remote access, but some people prefer the in-person dynamic. The best approach depends on your personal preference and the nature of the issues you’re dealing with.
The length of CBT treatment varies depending on the individual and the issue being addressed. Typically, it might range from 6 to 20 sessions. Some people experience significant improvements in fewer sessions, while others may require longer-term treatment.
