What is individual therapy?
At Proliance Center, we provide a broad range of individual therapeutic services to meet your needs. Individual therapy is a broad description given to the therapeutic process between a trained and experienced clinician and an individual patient. We believe that in life, no two people are alike, so we approach therapy with our patients using the same mindset. Our goal in individual therapy is to guide the individual to an improved state of mental and emotional health using an open and flexible approach.
We cater to your individual needs by using a variety of treatment modalities ranging from a medical model approach to humanistic therapies.
Regardless of approach, a trained Proliance clinician establishes treatment goals together with the patient and works toward those goals while helping the individual develop new skills and patterns.
The clinicians at Proliance Center have a very broad range of therapeutic training to address any number of issues that can affect the individuals we work with. We provide Art Therapy, Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Grief Therapy, Insight-oriented Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Play Therapy, Psychoanalytic Therapy, Supportive Therapy, and many more. It is important to keep in mind is that rarely is any one therapy used to the exclusion of another, nor is there a “best” therapy. All therapies can be important, though some are used more for specific types of problems than others. Often during the course of individual therapy with someone, the therapist may employ techniques from different therapy types, depending on the situation at hand. Think of the different therapies as a variety of tools in a toolbox, and we will employ the right tool for the task at hand.
What can I expect from individual therapy?
Individual therapy can be challenging as it fosters your emotional awareness and psychological development. During the process, you may work through issues that have given rise to depression, anxiety, grief, and/or trauma, among others. A Proliance clinician will work with you to help you reflect and explore the bases of your struggles. Together, we will examine the coping strategies and defenses that have been unsuccessful in the past and help you to develop new skills to help you feel safe and connected to those around you. We use individual therapy to help you develop a greater sense of self-awareness and reconnect with your authentic self.
Here at Proliance Center, our clinicians are committed to help you resolve your life, family, relationship, and career difficulties or transitions in an individual setting to help you reach your greatest potential. Our clinicians will work with you to develop a treatment plan that best addresses your personal needs and goals.
How Do I Know if I Need Individual Therapy?
We at Proliance recognize that the decision to seek therapy is a difficult one. Throughout life, there are times when we need help addressing the issues that create emotional distress or make us feel overwhelmed. Recognizing these feelings are the first step to making changes and it is then that a therapist can be the missing piece to help you find personal fulfillment and happiness. Life has a way of showing us warning signs when it becomes too difficult to face on your own. Often, we see changes in our work performance, our relationships with others, our level of motivation, or as simple as our daily outlook on life. Once you begin to see changes like these in your life, it is up to you to decide what the next step should be. At Proliance, our clinicians can work with you to determine whether you could benefit from individual therapy. We will work together with you as a team, to determine a course of action and an acceptable time frame that will help you reach your goals and potential in a safe and open environment.
