THREE FORMS OF THERAPY: Individual therapy can take the form of solution oriented counseling, supportive therapy, or psychodynamic psychotherapy. Solution oriented counseling is aimed at problem solving and immediate symptom relief. It is often short term, typically lasting less than 6 months. Supportive counseling involves providing emotional support to clients experiencing grief, loss, adjustment to change, chronic health problems, and other ongoing, stressful circumstances. Psychodynamic or depth psychotherapy is geared toward the goal of creating lasting and meaningful changes in the following areas: thought patterns, emotional experience, attitudes, and behavior. It is also designed to promote greater harmony and satisfaction in one's relationship to self and others. This more intensive form of therapy often entails healing the after effects of trauma, working with the unconscious mind as well as exploring ones personality structure. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is often a long-term process.
The length of treatment depends upon a combination of factors, including the nature of the problem and the goals of the client. FEES AND INSURANCE: $130/hour
