In brief: CBT for some works

In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, cognitive therapy is usually more focused on the present, more time-limited, and more problem-solving oriented.
In addition, patients learn specific skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. These skills involve identifying distorted thinking, modifying beliefs, relating to others in different ways, and changing behaviors.

In brief: In a word...yes

Cognitive behavior therapy (cbt) is useful in treating a variety of problems including difficulties with mood (depression, anger), anxiety (generalized, ocd, phobias), and behavior. If you check out the association for behavioral and cognitive therapies www.
Abct.Org you can find out additional information about this type of therapy. Cbt may be used in conjunction with medication, when necessary.
