In individual therapy, we establish treatment goals and work collaboratively to meet those goals through a variety of evidence-based interventions.
Individual therapy sessions run from 45-55 minutes on an outpatient basis. Individual therapy sessions may occur weekly, biweekly or as needed for established clients. For clients recently discharged from a residential. PHP or IOP program, individual sessions may occur 2-3 times per week until the client is stable enough to step down to weekly sessions.
