Individual Therapy Q & A

What is individual therapy?

Individual therapy is one-on-one therapy with a mental health expert. During individual therapy, your Wholehealth PLLC therapist helps you to identify negative and harmful behaviors and then guides you to positive changes. 

What types of problems does individual therapy address?

Individual therapy can help with a very wide range of problems, including: 

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Mood disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

When you're dealing with challenging mental health issues, one-on-one support is extremely beneficial, and that's exactly what individual therapy provides. You can trust your Wholehealth PLLC therapist to keep your information private as you navigate treatment successfully. 

While a group setting may be beneficial for some aspects of your treatment, individual therapy can be the foundation upon which you learn to cope with challenges and ultimately build better mental health. 

How does the individual therapy process work?

Before you start individual therapy, you'll have a psychiatric evaluation to identify problems, challenges, and areas of concern. Then, the Wholehealth PLLC team creates a customized individual therapy plan for you.

True to its name, the individual therapy process at Wholehealth PLLC is highly individualized for your situation and needs. For the majority of patients, individual therapy involves talk therapy, medication, and other evidence-based strategies. 

Talk therapy

In talk therapy, your therapist asks questions, listens, and helps you identify the source of your problem. They can make suggestions to help you cope with negative feelings and establish healthy new habits. 

There are many different approaches to talk therapy, including cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-informed therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, brief solution-focused therapy, and narrative therapy, among others. Your therapist may use a blend of approaches to help you get the best results.


Just like your talk therapy, your medication needs are specific to you. Wholehealth PLLC offers prescriptions for antidepressants, anti-anxiety, and other types of effective medications to help you manage your symptoms. 

Depending on your situation, your therapist may also recommend innovative treatment like transcranial magnetic stimulation. Some people also benefit from aromatherapy, natural supplements, yoga, acupuncture, and other complementary treatments.
