Individual Therapy Q&A

What is the focus of individual therapy?

Individual therapy is a one-on-one session focused on your personal challenges. Ann believes in radical acceptance of how you are now — your history, pain, strengths, and vulnerabilities — while creating who you want to become.

Ann works with you to build a caring and supportive environment where you can create the life you want by trying new ways of seeing, understanding, doing, and feeling.

One of the great benefits of individual therapy is having a therapist like Ann who carefully listens, identifies behavioral patterns you may follow, and helps you learn to overcome past challenges on your way toward a new future.

When would I need individual therapy?

Individual therapy guides and supports you through every life issue you might face, from feeling stuck and wanting to improve your life to navigating life transitions.

Many people seek individual therapy when they need help learning particular skills like anger management, communicating their needs, and improving their social skills. Or you might realize you keep making the same choices and want to stop the cycle.

Ann has helped people move beyond challenges such as:

  • Trauma
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Sadness and hopelessness
  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Social awkwardness
  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of uncertainty
  • Fear of losing control
  • Low self-esteem
  • Loss and grief
  • Fear of conflict
  • Relationship breakups
  • Imbalance between work and play

Individual therapy is also an essential treatment for mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, and insomnia (to name a few).

Ann may also prescribe medicine (medication management), depending on the severity of your symptoms.

What type of individual therapy might I receive?

Ann is extensively trained and highly skilled in many therapeutic approaches. The type of therapy that best meets your needs, how often you meet, and how long your therapy lasts depends on your challenges, strengths, and goals.

Some therapies focus on emotions, while others aim to change negative thoughts or improve interpersonal relationships. Your therapy may be time-limited or open-ended.

Therapeutic styles also vary. Some approaches are like having a free-flowing conversation; others take a more structured approach, with exercises and worksheets to guide your healing.

Individual therapy with Ann will transform your life and create a better future. Call Psych Options NYC today or connect online to schedule an in-person or telehealth appointment.
