What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in individual therapy is person-centered techniques and CBT. I enjoy person-centered therapy and CBT because I am better able to guide my clients to find solutions to their issues that fit their thinking process, which would be more likely to become part of the client’s long-term problem-solving skills.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I teach clients to reflect on past events and look at them from a different perspective. I do this by having them do the following:

  • Journal frequently
  • Adjust their sleep hygiene routine
  • Relaxation techniques

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

I know a client is making meaningful progress when they are able to discuss ways they have been able to positively respond to situations that normally would have a dysfunctional response. I have clients journal and do homework to reinforce the topics and skills we discussed during our sessions.

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

Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy with journaling and reading books suggested during sessions.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can relax and just prepare to be completely honest.

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.

So lucky to live at a time when therapy is more acceptable and encouraged rather than back in the day. I wish I would’ve reached out sooner. After a traumatic event, my life was spinning out of control. I now feel like I’m more equipped to manage the issues that arise.
