What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in individual therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I prefer using CBT because it allows clients to understand the relationship between their thoughts feelings and behaviors.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I teach the following tools in individual therapy:

  • Coping skills including meditation, breathing, journaling, and more to support symptom management and mood regulation.
  • The importance of creating structure in your day. We will discuss building routines around socialization to establish connections, physical activity and hobbies, and personal interests.
  • We learn how to embrace our emotions as neither good nor bad to minimize feelings of guilt and shame.
  • We learn how to use empathy and compassion as the compass for our mental health journey.

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

I know a client is making progress in individual therapy when they begin to make meaningful emotional and behavioral changes that support the goal they came into treatment to address.

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

Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy by implementing coping skills throughout the day, establishing healthy routines, and surrounding themselves with a support system that allows them to feel seen, heard, and validated.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can start by making a choice that you are worthy of investing in yourself and acknowledge how brave you are to take the first step in scheduling an appointment.

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.

Talisha Harrison helped me by giving me the tools to help me navigate some difficult relationships. I also appreciate how kind, sensitive, and empathetic she was as I have been grieving a recent loss of a parent. I have also been recovering from a serious medical condition. Should I feel the need to seek counseling in the future, I would not hesitate to return to counseling with Talisha.
