What is individual therapy?

Individual therapy focuses on your challenges through one-on-one sessions with a Brooklyn Integrative Psychological Services therapist.

During your journey, you reflect on your life choices and experiences, learn the patterns you may follow, identify your vulnerabilities and strengths, and create who you want to become.

When would I need individual therapy?

Individual therapy provides tremendous support for any life challenge you may face. You’ll benefit from therapy if you need to improve life skills, such as learning to express emotions or to stop repeating the same mistakes. 

Individual therapy is also a crucial treatment for mental health disorders, improving conditions, such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Gender dysphoria
  • Trauma
  • Grief and Loss
  • Panic attacks
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

The Brooklyn Integrative Psychological Services welcomes children, teens, and adults needing individual therapy for any challenge.

What type of individual therapy will I receive?

The Brooklyn Integrative Psychological Services therapists use their knowledge and training to complement their personalities and skills, allowing them to connect with each person authentically and empathically.

Their extensive experience also allows them to recommend one or more therapies that best fit your mental health needs. Each of the more than 400 different therapies uses a different approach. Each approach is appropriate for certain mental health disorders, personalities, and goals.

Some therapies are time-limited, taking the steps needed to reach a goal in a certain amount of time. Other therapies are open-ended and continue until you reach your goals.

Specific techniques feel like you’re having a guided conversation; others are highly structured with worksheets to complete between sessions.

What should I expect during therapy?

Before starting therapy, your Brooklyn Integrative Psychological Services provider completes a psychological evaluation. After determining your diagnosis, they discuss what you want to achieve during therapy, help you set goals, and create a treatment plan.

How often you meet, the number of sessions you may need, and how long your therapy lasts depends on your diagnosis, symptom severity, type of therapy, and the progress you achieve.

Brooklyn Integrative Psychological Services includes many highly trained and experienced therapists with different areas of expertise. Complete the online booking form today to schedule an appointment and take the first step toward improving your life.
