What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

I enjoy addressing the complex concerns of every individual with whom I work, ranging from improving communication skills to challenging negative thoughts and feelings.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I have found that addressing communication skills and healthy boundaries leads to improved interpersonal relationships, along with self-appreciation and self-care.

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

I know a client is making meaningful progress when their happiness and relief show in their smile!

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

I encourage clients to engage in healthy, engaging activities that allow them to decompress, take focus off of daily stress while focusing on things that are within their control, and reduce anxiety about things outside one's control.

Just bring yourself!

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.

Our therapists accept most major insurances. We accept 585+ insurance plans, and offer self-pay options, too.
