What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

I view individual therapy as a confidential, safe space to explore oneself from a lens of validation and empathy to lead to organic problem-solving in areas that are no longer healthy for our development as whole human beings.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I believe that self-awareness is our biggest skill and effective communication is our biggest tool. I focus on building self-esteem and self-confidence through empowerment, boundary-building, and conflict-resolution skills.

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

The way I evaluate meaningful progress from a client is when they tell me this work is hard. Nothing worth doing comes easy or is changed in a few sessions. Our brains are lazy…working with a client through changing habits and thought processes takes time, exploration, and practice without judgment.

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

My therapy sessions always end with homework, whether it's literal homework in terms of behavioral charts, for example, creative arts, or more existentially focused around thinking through concerts in between sessions. Therapeutic work, in my opinion, does not happen exclusively in the sessions, it happens outside of sessions. The therapeutic setting is meant to explore concepts on a deeper level to then make the next step of practicing those skills and concepts in between sessions.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

Making the initial step to set up the session is the most important and most empowering/strengths-based thing someone can do, albeit scary! To prepare for that first intake, remember, you're a rock star already.

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.
