Individual Therapy Process

Individual therapy is provided during residential and outpatient treatment. By offering individual therapy sessions, our aim is to help patients achieve their goals. In order for goals to be reached, our mental health experts make sure to spend sufficient one-on-one time to properly diagnose each patient and create an effective treatment plan for correct help.

After being diagnosed, patients will have frequent individual therapy sessions for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). In certain scenarios, patients may receive Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy or Transmagnetic Stimulation Therapy (TSM), depending on the type and severity of a person’s disorder.

Private therapy sessions aim to get to the root of the problem and find solutions to overcome it. Therapists help teach their patients to become self-aware of their emotions and show them healthy outlets on how to manage overwhelming and problematic symptoms for productive coping strategies. With the guidance of a therapist, patients can experience a more positive lifestyle because they have learned helpful tools to apply in their daily lives.
