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.

Is counseling something people should participate in only when they really need it? It’s an interesting question to think about. For so long there has been a stigma surrounding the mental health field and counseling. The common view has been that counseling is something only to be pursued as a last resort, or even something to be ashamed of participating in when you do seek it out. Thankfully, in more recent years, society has been shifting away from this view and beginning to take a more open view of seeking counseling and therapy from a professional service.
Thriveworks Roanoke Counseling is at the forefront of this movement – we believe wholeheartedly that seeking counseling and therapy is something to be proud of! Really take a minute to think about some of the times in your past when you sought out help from someone on a challenging issue you were facing, or maybe when you wished you had done so. You’ll agree that the times you partnered with someone else yielded better results than when you struggled through alone. Working with others, especially those who are highly qualified to help you, is a common occurrence outside of the mental health industry. A simple analogy is in sports. We believe that counseling is in many ways similar to coaching – A coach or counselor’s express purpose is to help and instruct people on how to improve. Athletes wouldn’t make it very far without coaches, and the same can be said for us without counsel in other areas of our lives. Our team of Thriveworks Roanoke counselors, therapists, and psychologists is highly experienced in helping people to improve their lives.
You don’t have to live with your challenges and obstacles for the rest of your life simply because you can’t find a way to overcome them on your own. When you partner with a professional Roanoke counselor, you’ll be able to work together to identify the source of your issue, develop coping strategies, set goals for your life, and make real progress in a positive direction! Accepting mediocrity or stagnation in life is nothing to be proud of, but seeking counseling to find your breakthrough, or participating in therapy to improve your life absolutely is!
At Thriveworks Roanoke Counseling and Therapy, we believe that everyone has the capacity to live happy, successful lives. Whether you’re facing serious mental health challenges, or you’re looking for a way to just get that extra few percent out of your life, locking arms with a Thriveworks Roanoke Counselor is for you.
