What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

My approach for helping people in individual therapy is to utilize active listening and reflection to make sure I truly understand the areas of concern and the client feels heard. I prefer to use a client-centered approach with an emphasis on strengths to build on already-established confidence and to build a strong rapport with clients to increase buy-in.

My go-to approaches for helping people in individual therapy are cognitive behavioral therapy and self-actualization. I enjoy providing space for clients to heal and grow into their most authentic selves by taking control of their thoughts, feelings, and actions.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I teach the following skills: self-soothing (DBT), distress tolerance skills (DBT), interpersonal effectiveness (DBT), mindfulness, and cognitive restructuring (CBT).

I teach the following tools in individual therapy: cognitive reframing tools, coping skills, positive self-affirmations, how to build and maintain healthy habit routines, and how to reduce people-pleasing tendencies by improving conflict resolution and communication skills.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in individual therapy?

I know a client is making meaningful progress when they come to a session and are able to express more positive reflections than negative ones.

I recognize when clients make meaningful progress when they become self-aware of how their thoughts and feelings influence their actions and are able to utilize tools independently outside of sessions.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement individual therapy?

Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy by journaling, engaging in purposeful activities (movement, self-care, learning), and practicing skills discussed in sessions.

Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy by prioritizing self-care.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

In preparing for a first individual therapy session, it can be helpful to have an agenda of various concerns or areas you'd like to process or problem-solve.

To prepare for your first individual therapy session, create a list of mental health goals that you would like to improve upon.

Starting Individual therapy

What is individual therapy?

Individual therapy, also known as individual-counseling, allows people to engage in private sessions with a skilled therapist, counselor, or psychologist. The core objective of individual therapy is to establish a secure and confidential setting where they can openly discuss whatever emotional, psychological, or behavioral challenges you face. Through these one-on-one sessions, the client and therapist work together to delve into, comprehend, and ultimately find solutions for the issues at hand in their life.

How does individual therapy work?

Individual therapy unfolds in a structured process, commencing with an initial assessment in which the therapist gathers essential information about your history, concerns, and objectives. Together, you and your therapist collaboratively establish specific, attainable goals for your sessions, which can encompass symptom alleviation, personal development, or finding solutions to particular challenges.

Can individual therapy help me?

Yes, individual therapy, also known as individual-counseling, at Thriveworks can help you to improve your mental health and overall quality of life.

Is individual therapy conducted in person or online?

Individual therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does individual therapy last?

The duration of your individual therapy sessions will vary. The decision on the number and frequency of sessions is typically collaboratively determined by the client and therapist.

How much does individual therapy cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

Cassie is an exceptional therapist! She was extremely understanding throughout and approached my issues in a way that made me feel heard. Cassie has many skills and helped me with coping strategies to get me through my challenges. I do not know how I would have got to where I am now without her support.

I wasn't sure what to expect from therapy, but Jamie put me at ease right away. She is a generous listener who let me explain my situation and my feelings about it without any kind of judgement. She patiently led me through the difficult path of healing, giving me concrete steps to take to process what happened and to move forward. I would recommend her to anyone, no question.

Jamie walked with me through a very difficult period in parenting a child with a chronic illness. She listens well, is compassionate, and helped me reframe my thinking when I was particularly discouraged and stuck. The fact that she could also integrate faith into our conversations made all the difference. I highly recommend working with Jamie!

First met frank in the mid 80's as he came to Phoenix Arizona as a certified surgical technologist & worked with him there in a level 1 trauma center. It wasn't much after his stay in Phoenix he returned to Philadelphia where he then became Philadelphia fire fighter, and his effort of doing that excelled to peaking position as Captain for the PFD. As a friend of Frank through all his dedication and motivation to higher education , that his commitment & dedication hadn't already been in progress . But as a friend to see what he has done and become to his educate himself to helping people in the community is second to none. But more than anything he's a great person and to have him as my friend all these years seen what he's done to keep helping people in the private sector, bravo frank !
