Eclectic Therapy

Eclectic therapy is a highly personalized therapeutic approach tailored to meet the individual client’s needs. It combines a variety of treatment orientations, techniques, and philosophies to create a custom program. Rather than adhering to a specific therapeutic approach, an eclectic therapist is flexible, using whichever techniques work best for a client. An eclectic therapist will usually balance listening and advice giving, as well as use all techniques that are available to them to treat their clients as successfully as possible. Think this approach might be right for you? Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s eclectic therapy specialists today.

I utilize an eclectic counseling approach adapting techniques from evidence-based counseling therapies to suit your needs based on your unique situation and aspired goals. The therapies I often borrow from are Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Existential Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. Many of the techniques in these therapies are designed to illuminate the innate strengths and resources you possess and develop new insights leading to greater self-awareness and conscious action.

Combining many treatment methodologies and techniques to best fit the person in front of us and their needs in the moment allows us to create new and more possibilities in the clinical work. If we weave a tapestry of options with the client, we can collaborate on treatment. Using creativity, existing "coping skills," and clinical work interwoven together can lead to unexpected treasures of connection and healing.

What works for one person may not work for another; eclectic therapy shifts us away from the "one size fits all" model.

Psychotherapeutic care is an individualized process, curated and crafted for the unique person. I pull from many psychotherapeutic modalities, treatments, theories, frameworks, techniques, skills, and strategies and tailor treatment as appropriate.

I am trained in gut-directed hypnotherapy to help reduce gut-health related flares, such as from IBS, IBD, or GERD.

Eclectic therapy is a mix and match of different theories to customize treatment according to what you need. Every person requesting therapy is different, as is their story, and that is why incorporating a multi-model approach is effective. My sessions offer the freedom to speak your mind and share your deepest secrets, to let go, and process them through your mind, and finally experience true peace. Let's see if we can work together and enjoy the journey!
