Individual Therapy

Personal counseling with a psychotherapist aimed to assist patients in resolving problems in living. Techniques utilized for each patient during the course of treatment are chosen according to individual needs. However, cognitive-behavioral (CBT) interventions are most often used in working with adolescents and adults due to the overwhelming empirical evidence that suggest its effectiveness (Greenberger, D., Padesky, C. (1995).Mind Over Mood; Change the Way You Feel by Changing the Way You Think. New York: Guilford Publications.;Beck, A. T. (1975). Cognitive Therapy and Emotional Disorders. International Universities Press, Inc.). A combination of play therapy techniques and CBT are most often employed in working with children due to the age-appropriateness of such interventions. Other interventions utilized in individual therapy include solution-focused therapy, systematic desensitization, assertiveness training, goal-setting, experiential techniques, EMDR, DBT, and behavioral therapy.

Your first appointment will be with a mental health provider. If you are a child or adolescent, your parent or guardian will be with you during this appointment. During this initial visit, your provider will explain the expectations of treatment and ask questions to get to know you. Your provider will also initiate an extensive Biopsychosocial Diagnostic Interview asking questions about your presenting problems, current living situation, family history, relationship history, medical history, academic/employment history, nutrition, lifestyle, and other pertinent information. This allows your provider to properly diagnose the issues, assess your current needs, and work with you to build an individualized treatment plan for future sessions.
