Hear from our clinicians

What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

April: My go-to approach for helping people in individual therapy is using an integrative approach, with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) being the basic foundation from which I practice. I find the best benefit comes from beginning with a psychodynamic approach because that provides me with the best picture before implementing CBT skills.

Dianne: My go-to approach for helping people in individual therapy is assisting them in deciding what it is that they want. If they figure out what they want their life to look like, then together, we can figure out how to get them there. Happiness is internal, but to find your happiness, you need to know what it is that makes you happy. Deciding to choose happiness is the first step.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

April: I teach the following tools in individual therapy: thought evaluation and reconstruction, mindfulness, and acceptance and commitment interventions.

Dianne: I teach the following tools in individual therapy: goal setting, organizational skills, positive thinking, coping skills, creativity, gratitude, and the ability to find joy in everyday moments.

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

April: I know a client is making meaningful progress in individual therapy when there is an obvious shift in their mood from the first day they stepped in the door.

Dianne: I know a client is making meaningful progress in individual therapy when they are achieving set goals.

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

April: Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy by being consistent and reaching into the “kit bag” of tools they begin accumulating from day one of therapy.

Dianne: Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy by journaling and creating healthy routines.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

April: To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can challenge yourself to be open-minded to what the experience will be like. See if you can be vulnerable...Fear of vulnerability is one of the reasons people neglect to come in the first place and choose to suffer in silence.

Dianne: To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can start by thinking about what it is you want out of therapy.

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.

Jessica Gort is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had. She’s not only met my needs and expectations, she goes above and beyond that. When I first met with Jessica i was newly sober and recently lost my father, I was struggling and had just ended a professional relationship with a prior therapist that couldn’t help me with what I needed at that time. I felt lost and was losing hope until I met her. I expressed my concerns with Jessica and she did everything she could to help me in the ways that I needed, to keep my sobriety and mental health intact during my grieving process. If I could rate her 10 stars I would. She’s amazing. Highly recommend.

I love how attentive and empathic Erin is towards my needs, and I am close to meeting my therapeutic goals. I have learned that life is a journey, and we should work on improving ourselves daily.
