Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) targets distorted or irrational thought as a prime source for emotional disturbance and/or dysfunctional behavior. In stepping back and taking note of our thoughts and the way they influence our emotion and action, we begin the work of developing new and healthier ways of interacting with those thoughts, and so better manage our emotions and behaviors.

Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) is a specific form of CBT, which I have found to be and extremely elegant, flexible, and effective modality that integrates well with other approaches as needed.
