Hear from our clinicians

What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

Deidra: Look inward honestly. Accept direct and honest feedback because by looking at ourselves with an honest eye, we can then have full awareness and acceptance of who we are and learn and work toward WHO we can become.

Kaleasha: My go-to approach for helping people in individual therapy is meeting them where they are and coming along their side to work on steps forward toward their goals.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

Deidra: I teach the following: self-reflection, tracking backward for triggers, interrupting negative thoughts, self-care, finding positives to replace negative thoughts, grounding, and relaxation.

Kaleasha: I teach the following tools in individual therapy: psychoeducation on trauma impacting the brain and body (for folks struggling with trauma), the impact of thoughts and beliefs on our emotions and behavioral responses, the dialectical process of seeing that two things can be opposite and both true (e.g. I am doing the best I can and I need to do better), sleep hygiene, and custom coping skills that are successfully used.

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

Deidra: I know a client has made meaningful progress when they tell me a time they had a negative thought or emotion and were able to use the tools we have discussed to regulate their emotions, look at all sides of the issue, and find a resolution.

Kaleasha: I know a client is making meaningful progress in individual therapy when they report back using the skills and begin to have a desire to help others who are struggling with the same situations the client used to.

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

Deidra: Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy by taking some time after our sessions to reflect on what was discussed, jot down notes or reminders of assignments, and also practice the skills discussed — whether or not they work effectively each time, just keep practicing! The most important thing I want clients to do is “be gentle with themselves.”

Kaleasha: Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy with mindfulness activities, hobbies that bring them joy, creative tasks that utilize their artistic brain, and charity work that impacts others.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

Deidra: To prepare for your first individual session, you can be prepared to talk more about what wasn’t discussed during your intake. It’s important for clients to know that our intake is NOT a therapy session but an opportunity for the therapist to gather history. The first session is when we dive into more things. Be prepared to be open, maybe jot down things you want to make sure the therapist knows about you. Just mainly be open and willing to look at things from a different perspective and know that you are in a safe space, free of judgment!

Kaleasha: To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can prepare yourself for what you want to discuss. Some questions will be hard and it's okay to say you aren't ready to answer. Know your boundaries, take deep breaths, and be open and honest as much as you can as the therapist works on learning how to be an effective support for change for you.

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.
