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 offer strengths-based, individual psychotherapy, using a variety of cognitive, behavioral, emotive, and mindfulness techniques.

— Lauren Linn, Psychologist in HIGGANUM, CT

I respect my client's individuality and therefore I use an eclectic approach. Eclectic therapy basically means using different evidenced based modalities and techniques to match the needs of your client. When it comes to mental health, there is no once size fits all.

— Chardonnay Badchkam, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in , NY
 

I integrate a variety of approaches and consider which models to use when working with you to treat your specific concerns. The models I have studied and use are person-centered, emotionally focused, mindfulness-based, ACT, DBT, motivational interviewing, narrative, dynamic, experiential, and sand tray play therapy.

My academic and professional experience made me become an eclectic therapist. I have a Ph.D. in integrative mental health with a specialization in mind-body medicine, an MS in Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling, an MSc in Health Psychology and Clinical Psychology. My certifications as an advanced clinical hypnotherapist, as a yoga instructor, along with numerous training in the area have helped me to customize therapeutic interventions according to clients' needs.

— Noelia Leite, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Miami, FL

Basically, I take a few things and smash them together into one therapy approach. I can go almost anywhere you want to take me therapeutically, but there are some things I don't do. Like what is wilderness therapy???? I don't do it, but it sounds FUN! And equine therapy? I'm short so a horse would just walk over me, but wow... that sounds fun, too! So those really fun ones? I don't do them. But I'm a fun person so it all works out.

— Chandra Niklewski, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in HAGERSTOWN, MD
 

I focus primarily on building my relationship with my clients and then sharing therapeutic tools as they become relevant. Studies have shown that the biggest indicator of positive change for clients is the quality of relationship they feel they have with their therapist, so this is my anchor. The principles of building relationship that I strive to embody are authenticity, compassion, and creation of a collaborative relationship that focuses on the client needs.

— Elizabeth Hawkins, Sex Therapist

The eclectic therapy approach involves the integration of theory and technique from various therapy models. The application of this training is determined by the needs of each person that walks into my office. I integrate eclectic approaches within the art therapy modality to expand the potential for healing . I am currently receiving training in Acceptance and Commitment therapy, and will be adapting my therapy approach to primarily focus on ACT theory and practice in combination with art.

— Christina Marrero, Licensed Professional Counselor in Flourtown, PA

Having worked in the mental health field for almost a decade in various settings and with diverse populations, I utilize an eclectic approach that encompasses my training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Existential Psychotherapy, and Attachment Theory.

— Natalie Worobel, Licensed Professional Counselor in Denver, CO
 

I offer a unique and eclectic blend of different practices as there is no 'one size fits all' approach that works for all. Drawing from the best of conventional & alternative medicine, holistic nursing's connection & caring perspective, cross-cultural wisdom tradition philosophies, various psychological theories including imaginal process, depth, transpersonal & the human potential movement. I blend that further with practical 'here and now' skills you can use in your world.

— Kim Salinger, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is eclectic in that I often mix a variety of intervention techniques depending on your treatment goals and needs that day. Some sessions will include mostly reflection and deepening clarity of your inner workings, others might include pyschoeducation and skills building. I like to use infographics to information or to help to link personality traits, communication styles, and symptoms. I also suggest media to take in outside of session to deepen work done in session.

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, conscious deci

— Jerry Ochoa, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Turlock, CA

I have a wide area of therapeutic modality interests that I've explored and trained in over the years. I believe most people often benefit from a combination of approaches versus a single modality. My hope is to work with you to develop an understanding of yourself and what things you can do in your life to build the type of life you want for yourself.

— Jen King, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in , CT
 

My masters program qualified me to apply for either a license in Marriage and Family Therapy or as a Professional Counselor. This exposure has afforded me knowledge and experience in a wide array of models. Consequentially, I am able to uniquely tailor your therapy to your unique needs and preferences. I am versed in therapies such as solution focused (brief), CBT, emotion focused, systems both internally (IFS) and relationally (Gottman for couples; Satir and Structural for family).

All techniques utilized are evidence based, grounded in research, to assure that clients obtain the best possible results. Treatment is tailored to each client and their individual needs.
