Cognitive Behavior Therapy:  CBT is one of the most well-researched and evidence based therapy techniques.  It focuses on helping you improve awareness of how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are related.  It helps you build skills to identify and change thoughts that are not helpful or that cause suffering so you can feel better.
