Individual Therapy is the most common type of treatment. One on one with a therapist allows you to address everything from anxiety, depression, and grief to self-esteem, addiction, and trauma. This style uses a variety of techniques depending on the issue and the therapist.
These sessions are usually 50 minutes in length and create an environment of acceptance and support.
Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy in which a therapist helps two people involved in a romantic relationship gain insight into their relationship, resolve conflict, and improve relationship satisfaction utilizing a variety of therapeutic interventions. Couples therapy can look different for each therapist and each couple. Typically, you may consider focusing on a specific problem such as communication, conflict, or infidelity, and set goals for yourselves as a couple.
Children and teens require an approach specific to their age and level of development. Treatments can be adapted to the age of the client and may include art or play therapy during sessions. Some children and teens do not know how to talk to their parents and teachers and so a therapist can be an extra source of adult support during those formative years.
Family therapy is a type of psychological counseling (psychotherapy) that can help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is often short term. It may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Your specific treatment plan will depend on your family’s situation. Family therapy sessions can teach you skills to deepen family connections and get through stressful times, even after you’re done going to therapy sessions.
Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time. Group therapy is sometimes used alone, but it is also commonly integrated into a comprehensive treatment plan that also includes individual therapy and medication.
