I am a male therapist with 10 years of clinical experience. During my career, I have gained extensive training on how to be a multiculturally competent therapist. This has allowed me to work with people of different races, cultures, and ethnic backgrounds. I create an atmosphere of trust with my clients while building a therapeutic relationship. By demonstrating empathy, sympathy, and positive regard, I give my clients a space to be themselves while they work on becoming their better selves. Read more

Hear from our clinicians

What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

Lauren: I am a big believer in CBT because I believe that when people are doing something to make a change, it helps them feel in control and therefore start feeling better.

Laura: My go-to approach for helping people in individual therapy is about listening to what people need. I find the best benefit in normalizing their experiences and difficulties because, very often, people feel alone and hopeless. Understanding that even the awful parts of life are still normal parts of the human experience allows them to start healing.

Nicole: My go-to approach in helping people in both online and in-person therapy has a primary focus on listening and developing problem solutions together. I do this with my mix of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), person-centered therapy, mindfulness, and psychoeducation approaches. I enjoy practicing these elements in sessions with my clients because it helps with processing and gaining perspective in order to identify what needs to change and the barriers that have been in place that we aren’t okay with holding anymore compared with the benefits.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

Lauren: I teach the following tools in individual therapy: reframing, empathy, self-care, saying “no”, not being a people pleaser, believing in oneself.

Laura: I teach the following tools in individual therapy: emotional regulation (ways to change how you are feeling), distress tolerance (ways to coexist with unchangeable factors), coping/calming skills (ways to remove stress, anxiety, and motor tension), mindfulness (ways to connect with peacefulness and relaxation), interpersonal effectiveness (ways to interact and engage with others comfortably), communication skills (ways to express yourself), conflict resolution (ways to resolve problems and fights), intrapersonal growth (ways to grow healthy self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-efficacy).

Nicole: I teach typically the same in either platform of online or in-person. Some standard tools that are applicable regardless of what our focus is going to be can be:

  • Effective communication
  • Identifying and utilizing coping skills
  • Identifying barriers
  • Developing boundaries

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

Lauren: I know a client is making meaningful progress in individual therapy when they feel better. When they can hear the voice of the clinician in their head when making better decisions. When they can confidently say “I will get through this.”

Laura: I know a client is making meaningful progress in individual therapy when their story of what happened is the same, but their reaction or understanding is different. Seeing the shift in perspective demonstrates such growth.

Nicole: When clients change their frequency in sessions, we know we are giving more time to practice skills outside of session, we may be moving more towards needing less support, and are in maintenance with the tools learned from our sessions where we just don’t need to talk as often.

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

Lauren: Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy with journaling, reframing, and using other coping skills. Also, doing the agreed-upon homework will help the client move toward wellness.

Laura: Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy by practicing their coping skills for only a couple of minutes a day; 2-3 minutes a day is better than an hour a week. Clients can also practice self-care as much as possible.

Nicole: Give enough time and space outside of therapy to think about what we talk about in therapy. A lot of times, we talk about it, but we aren’t seeing the action steps of implementing outside of sessions, so we stay stagnant. Make the change, do the thing, and that would be honoring the experience and investment in yourself the most.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

Lauren: To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can open your mind to thinking of how you can see the problem differently and be prepared to have a highly skilled “sister friend”-like experience.

Laura: To prepare for your first individual session, you can tell yourself a few important things. First, you are not alone. Second, there will be times when it is hard or uncomfortable. And third, the hardest part is getting started; once started, it'll get more comfortable.

Nicole: To prepare for your first online therapy session, pick a cozy, private place to have a session, make sure you have your charging accessories as needed, and review our consent forms. Everything is in those consent forms with what to expect and anticipate from the process, but we usually don’t give enough time for a thorough read, and this is my suggestion of doing just that. I promise it is beneficial and worth your time.

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.

Pricing & insurance

Our therapists accept most major insurances. We accept 585+ insurance plans, and offer self-pay options, too.

★★☆☆☆
I initially had a fantastic experience with Thriveworks, and I was thrilled with the service they provided. My journey to find the right therapist was successful, and I happily recommended Thriveworks to friends and family. However, my positive experience took a turn when I discovered that the therapist I connected with does not accept my insurance. Embarking on the path to seek help required a lot of courage on my part, and I fully committed to the process. In just 4 or 5 sessions, I developed a strong connection with my therapist. Unfortunately, the realization that she could no longer continue due to insurance constraints has left me feeling disappointed. Now, I find myself having to start the therapeutic journey all over again, and this has diminished my overall satisfaction with the service.

Sherodle is a fantastic counselor. I’ve learned so much that I use to make my life better. She is easy to speak with, very personable. Not sure about your rating system. I put 5 assuming that is best.
