What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in individual therapy is establishing a collaborative relationship with the client. I find the best benefit in meeting the client where they are because it creates a safe environment of non-judgement and support.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I teach the following tools in individual therapy: greater awareness of how your thoughts impact your mood, supportive reflection, the opportunity to explore relationship patterns, and the opportunity to learn (and practice!) useful coping skills.

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 he or she acknowledges an improvement in mood, reports greater satisfaction in personal relationships, and expresses greater confidence in managing life stressors.

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

Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy with journaling, reading books related to subjects of interest, practicing their learned coping skills, and carving out time to engage in enjoyable, relaxing activities.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can assure yourself that you're about to enter a stress-free nonjudgmental space, remind yourself that you're taking the first step toward prioritizing for yourself, and take a moment to feel proud of yourself.

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.

Krystal made my first session very comfortable and welcoming. Her goal is to get the best version of yourself she can. I can’t thank her enough for saving my life when I didn’t even know how desperate I was to be saved. HIGHLY recommend her services.

I personally didn’t think therapy would work for me but I gave thriveworks a shot and do not regret it! They truly know how to figure out the problem and will work with you to find multiple solutions. Everyone that works there is so nice, from the phone operators to the actual therapists. Don’t sit on the fence about your mental health!
