What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

My go-to approach for individual therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). I find these beneficial because clients can see results fairly quickly and the work is tailored specifically to meet emotional needs and reduce symptoms. However, I'm also exploring internal family systems (IFS) for the recognition of facets of who we are and why we are stronger or weaker at times depending on history, environment, and personality.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I teach the following tools in individual therapy:

  • Stress management and relaxation techniques
  • Working with and challenging negative thought processes
  • Coping and distress tolerance skills
  • Communication/interpersonal effectiveness skill
  • Emotion regulation skills
  • Mindfulness skills
  • Creative/artistic expressive therapy techniques

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

I know that clients are making progress in therapy when they report feeling more comfortable in managing symptoms and situations that were previously overwhelming and when they report feeling more confident and liking themselves more.

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

Clients can supplement time in individual therapy by journaling, practicing the techniques we discuss, gently challenging themselves to move out of their comfort zones, and most of all, participating fully in creating the life they want and love.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

To prepare for your first therapy session, you can create a list of your medications, write down what you hope to achieve in therapy, and what works/doesn't work for you in therapy (if you know).

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.

I have been meeting with Matt for almost 2 years now, and he's helped me get in touch with myself and understand who I am, as well as provided great tools to apply to my life for future improvement and coping. I have benefited greatly from my regular meetings with Matt and I can't speak highly enough about him as a counselor and psychological mentor.
