What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

My go-to approach for individual therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I find the best benefit in CBT because it quickly resolves negative thoughts that are often the primary cause of anxiety and depression. It is also easily intertwined into other therapy models as needed.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I teach the following tools in individual therapy:

  • Play the script until the end - Treats fear and anxiety; reflects on the worst-case scenario
  • Unraveling cognitive distortions - Identifying faulty thinking
  • Progressive muscle relaxation - Calming; mindfulness
  • Cognitive restructuring - Exploring causes of faulty thinking
  • Interoceptive exposure - Treats panic and anxiety; purposeful exposure to sensations of panic; instills understanding that sensations are not dangerous
  • Exposure and response intervention - Purposefully exposing self to trigger and mindfully controlling the response

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 I ask the client about his/her own perceptions of progress. A therapist can sometimes see changes, but if the client isn't aware of these, that isn't real progress.

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

Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy with additional exercises such as homework assigned by the therapist, practicing mindfulness, maintaining a gratitude journal, practicing mindfulness meditation and breathing, exercising, and maintaining healthy eating and sleep habits.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can:

  • Learn about the type of therapy you will be receiving.
  • Prepare questions to ask your therapist.
  • Be honest during your first therapy session.
  • Set realistic goals for therapy.
  • Come to your first therapy session with an open mind.

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.
