Our cognitive restructuring sessions are designed to help you break negative thought patterns and improve your mood and behavior.
Our thought patterns, emotions, and behavior are inextricably linked. When any one of these components are altered, it affects all the others in the system. When people are depressed or anxious, usually thoughts, behaviors, and emotions are in a negative feedback loop, feeding off one another, and maintaining a negative mood state.
Cognitive restructuring is a treatment designed to help people recognize and significantly alter maladaptive thought patterns via modulation of negative cognitive loops and replacing them with positive thought patterns. Cognitive Restructuring is a useful tool for understanding and reacting differently to the thinking patterns that negatively influence our mood and behavior.
There are numerous methods to identifying and altering dysfunctional thought patterns. Generally, they all begin with identifying automatic thoughts, those thoughts which provide a running commentary to our experience. Instead of accepting all of these thoughts as accurate reflections of reality, the cognitive therapist helps the patient to learn to think of these thoughts as guesses about the root correlation, and consider alternate points of view. In this way, the client is able to develop a more centered way of awareness about whatever is causing him or her distress.
There is a good deal of research supporting the effectiveness of cognitive restructuring with a number of psychological problems. These include phobias, panic attacks, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and alcohol and drug problems, to name a few.

Words from our Patients
I've been seeing both Hana and Jenna for treatment and cannot recommend this practice enough. Hana's ability to tap into your mind and guide you through your thoughts and emotions is incredible. She has helped me in so many ways that I cannot thank her enough. Jenna's acupuncture, cupping and massage treatments are hands down the best ever.... If you're struggling with any personal issues, anxieties or stresses, please do yourself a favor and see Hana and Jenna.
One of the best clinics in LA for sure. Had an amazing first experience and am looking forward to going back for more treatments. I’ve never felt more relaxed and my back feels amazing! Thank you guys!
Hana did some cupping for me when my muscles weren't feeling too great. The next day I felt significantly better. She also gives amazing treatments for anxiety. Ive been feeling fantastic. She's super professional and genuinely cares. Looking forward to continuing treatment.
I have had many sessions with both Hana and Jenna and they both are truly an incredible, intuitive, caring, gifted healers. There are actually no words to articulate the powerful relief and release I've experienced during our treatments.
