Individual Therapy Q & A

What is individual therapy?

Individual therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on addressing your mental health and behavioral issues one-on-one with a professional therapist. Throughout your outpatient therapy sessions, the Behavioral Health Clinic team focuses on building a relationship with you through psychotherapy (talk therapy). They employ cognitive-behavioral techniques to help you recognize the triggers of your addiction or mental or emotional health issues, so you can better manage them. Cognitive-behavioral techniques also help you manage your anxieties and anger by changing the way you think. These techniques help you become more self-aware and recognize the connectedness of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

Why is individual therapy important for addiction and mental health?

Individual therapy is a highly effective way to address your emotions, behaviors, and addictions in a safe, nonjudgmental space. You should consider the individual therapy services available at Behavioral Health Clinic if you’re working towards recovery from an addiction to drugs or alcohol, especially after leaving an inpatient program. You may also benefit from individual therapy to help address emotional, behavioral, and mental health issues that interfere with your quality of life. Individual therapy can be advantageous in the treatment of:
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizoaffective disorders
  • Relationship dysfunction
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Individual therapy aims to honor the human experience and work toward developing self-awareness to better manage your behaviors, thoughts, and emotions. Teletherapy sessions are available if you can’t make it to the office to meet with your provider. You can receive counseling through the online telehealth platform.

How long do I need to participate in individual therapy?

The experienced therapy staff at Behavioral Health Clinic can determine how long you should participate in individual therapy during your initial intake assessment. The licensed team creates a treatment plan based on your individual needs and continually monitors your progress during each therapy session. In addition to individual therapy services, the Behavioral Health Clinic team offers group therapy to give you a support system of peers who share your experiences.
