What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in individual therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy. I find the best benefit in CBT because it focuses on changing the client's perspective from negative to positive to allow them to feel empowered, feel more confident, and improve their overall quality of life.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I teach the following tools in individual therapy:

  • CBT (changing perspective)
  • Mindfulness (becoming self-aware)
  • Relaxation/breathing techniques (grounding tools)
  • Boundary setting (to establish boundaries and follow them to allow peace for ourselves)

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

I know a client is making meaningful progress in individual therapy when they are able to implement what we learn in sessions to their daily lives and feel comfortable working through their challenges successfully on their own.

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

Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy by practicing grounding tools, narrative therapy or journaling, or exposure therapy.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can recognize therapy is a judgment-free zone—a safe place—and make a list of concerns to discuss with your counselor.

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.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
