Individual Counseling 

 

Individualized Counseling Options

Individualized counseling services are provided to address a wide variety of issues that an individual faces. Services are conducted face to face in a private, confidential setting. Services begin with an assessment in order to collect needed background information such as medical history, education history, employment history, history of symptoms, other previous attempts at treatment and other information to assist your Practitioner in developing a plan for treatment. Part of every individualized service delivery is a plan for treatment that is typically developed by the fourth counseling session. The plan for treatment is completed with the individual in order to guide the goals and objectives that the individual hopes to achieve throughout counseling. As sessions progress, the plan for treatment can be altered and changed to reflect changes in goals, or to be updated with more current information related to symptoms, concerns, or problems to be addressed. The plan for treatment is constantly changing in relation to an individual’s progress, symptoms and speed of recovery.

Individuals seek individualized counseling services for many different reasons. Some of the most common symptoms or concerns that lead to a request for individualized services are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety/Panic
  • Marital Conflict
  • Divorce/Separation
  • Grief
  • Trauma, or a History of Trauma
  • Mental Health Disorders
  • Anger
  • Weight Loss
  • Eating Disorders
  • ADHD
  • Body Image
  • Intimacy Problems

Individualized services can occur in several different timed sessions and at different times on different days to afford the individual with flexibility for scheduling. There is no pre-determined length of treatment for individuals who participate in counseling services. The length of time for treatment, along with the frequency of services is determined by the individual, as well as their Practitioner. Discharge from services only occurs upon agreement between the individual and Practitioner. Discharge planning is completed in order to secure a plan for success for each individual after services have concluded.
