What is your go-to approach for individual therapy?

My go-to approach for helping people in individual therapy is providing clients with a safe space to learn about themselves and what is hindering them. I find the best benefit in allowing clients to choose what they would like to talk about because it allows me as the clinician to get to know them better.

What tools do you teach in individual therapy?

I teach the following tools in individual therapy: psychoeducation (information about the diagnosis), self-awareness (checklist), grounding techniques (worksheets), and emotional regulation (understanding and naming emotions).

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

I know a client is making meaningful progress in individual therapy when they are able to use the skills taught in everyday life and are able to recognize that they used them in an appropriate situation.

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

Clients can supplement their time in individual therapy by practicing and incorporating their learned coping skills in everyday situations.

What should someone do to prepare for starting individual therapy?

To prepare for your first individual therapy session, you can write things down, such as questions you may have about therapy and the process, and symptoms you may be feeling.

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.

Ms. Hines is as professional as they come. Her voice is calming, and her professionalism is top notch. She will not only tell you want you want to hear, but what you need to hear to help you work through your concerns and issues.
