Welcome to AIM Behavioral Health Services, where we offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) services to help individuals overcome challenges, manage symptoms, and achieve greater well-being. Led by Dr. Awawu Ojikutu, our CBT program is grounded in evidence-based techniques and tailored to meet each patient’s unique needs.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an effective form of psychotherapy focusing on the connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Developed by Dr. Aaron T. Beck and refined by Dr. Albert Ellis, CBT is based on the idea that thoughts and beliefs influence our emotions and actions. By identifying and challenging negative or distorted thinking patterns, individuals learn to change their behavior and improve their mental health.

In CBT sessions, Dr. Ojikutu-Agbabiaka collaborates with patients to identify unhelpful thinking and behavioral patterns that contribute to their distress. Through a process of self-exploration and experimentation, patients learn practical skills and strategies to:

  • Challenge and reframe negative thoughts
  • Develop healthier coping mechanisms
  • Change maladaptive behaviors
  • Manage emotions effectively
  • Build resilience and self-confidence
  • Improve problem-solving and decision-making skills

CBT is a structured and goal-oriented approach that empowers patients to take an active role in treatment and make meaningful changes in their lives. Dr. Ojikutu-Agbabiaka provides a supportive and empathetic environment where patients can explore their thoughts and feelings, challenge their assumptions, and practice new skills.
