Types of Individual Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Rewiring Thought Patterns
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a cornerstone of our approach to adolescent and young adult therapy. Grounded in the understanding that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, CBT helps identify dysfunctional patterns in these areas. Through individual therapy sessions, our therapists guide clients in adopting new perspectives and healthier thinking habits. With CBT, our clients can:
- Change negative thought patterns.
- Develop positive stress responses.
- Enhance communication skills.
- Identify and modify thoughts leading to self-destructive behaviors.
- Boost self-esteem.
- Alleviate phobias and fears.
This therapeutic approach provides a gentle and effective path for overcoming challenges such as teen depression and teen anxiety.
Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Adolescents (IPT-A):
Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Adolescents (IPT-A) is adapted from adult therapy to address the unique emotional needs of teens. Typically spanning 12-16 individual sessions, IPT-A is particularly effective for teens experiencing various forms of depressive disorders. Our skilled mental health professionals use IPT-A to help clients:
- Recognize how their feelings and interpersonal situations influence their mood.
- Improve problem-solving and communication skills.
- Reduce stress within relationships.
- Enhance social functioning.
- Alleviate symptoms of depression.
IPT-A may be used in combination with CBT to create a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to individual needs.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT):
DBT, a relative of CBT, focuses on treating individuals dealing with depression and self-destructive thoughts and behaviors. Unique to DBT is its emphasis on acceptance and change, helping clients learn healthier coping mechanisms and thought patterns. DBT involves a more structured treatment plan, often including group therapy sessions for higher-risk patients. It can effectively address conditions such as:
- Self-destructive behaviors.
DBT empowers individuals to regain control of their lives by fostering acceptance and healthier ways of coping.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT):
ACT harnesses the power of mindfulness to address conditions including depression, OCD, anxiety, and PTSD. This highly individualized approach doesn’t follow a standard treatment plan. Instead, it empowers clients to explore their inner selves, take control of their thoughts, and make meaningful, mindful life choices. ACT encourages individuals to:
- Act on inner emotions.
- Accept and address feelings of denial, regret, avoidance, and struggle.
- Create more meaningful and mindful life decisions.
Motivational Interviewing (MI)
Motivational Interviewing is a client-centered approach that motivates individuals, including teenagers, college-aged students, and adults, to make positive changes in their thoughts and behaviors. Through MI, our therapists build essential relationships with clients, helping them identify behaviors they want to change and guiding them on the path to action.
