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.

My approach depends on the person with whom I'm working.

— Laura G. Kogan, Clinical Psychologist in Skillman, NJ

Everyone comes to therapy with different needs and goals. As an eclectic therapy practitioner, I am able to draw upon multiple disciplines and therapeutic tools to address the unique needs of each specific client, depending on their presenting problem, treatment goals, and personal preferences.

— Tania Protsenko, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Long Island, NY

My eclectic approach allows my work with you to be fully present just for you. I don't use any one-size-fit-all plan or orientation, and can tailor our work together to meet your needs and the best application for your life.

— Emily Brenner, Art Therapist in Ridgewood, NY

I utilize 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.

— Tera Buerkle, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Lexington, KY

I believe in individualized care. Eclectic Therapy uses a variety of techniques and gives us the flexibility to tailor your sessions to best treat your current challenges, as well as any changes along the way.

— Keith Elias -Shetland Counseling, LLC, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Wharton, NJ

I believe that in Counseling it is not one size fits all. Most of my clients come in needing a level of listening, problem solving, and tools development but how that manifests is not cookie cutter.

— Jessica McMath, Licensed Professional Counselor in Philadelphia, PA

Eclectic Therapy is an great and informal approach that leaves room for flexibility. With this approach, I focus less on specified interventions and more on the needs of the client at a given moment.

— Erica Varner-Anderson, Counselor in Scottsdale, AZ

Using eclectic approaches best tailored to your overall goals and outcomes will allow us to integrate the right approach at the right time.

— Brandon Bressi, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in Portland, OR

I have over 12 years of experience, training, and certifications in several types of therapies and I find using a blend of approaches to fit my clients' needs works best.

— Jessi Frothingham, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Portland, OR

If you want one singular modality. I may not be the right fit. I provide a unique blend of theoretical and magically transformative approaches paired with intuitive guidance. My aim is to find the shortest route for you to access your wellbeing. It is an art as much as a science, for no two individuals are the same.

— Lisa Love, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Serving all of Maine online, ME

I use an eclectic therapeutic approach in order to provide personalized therapy tailored to each person’s individual needs. I rely on evidence-based and solution-focused modalities and incorporate them based on individual needs. Eclectic therapy is a flexible approach that allows me to collaborate with clients and treat each person based on their specific needs and goals.

— Lauren Butcher, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Garland, TX

I like to consider myself an Eclectic therapist, which means in essence that I use several therapy theories that fit the needs of people I'm working with for a maximum positive outcome. I don't think that " one size fits all ". The world can be a complicating place to navigate so we need to use all the tools we can to strengthen our inter resources to live fulfilling lives.

— Patrick Varney, Associate Professional Counselor in Phoenix, AZ

I identify first as an eclectic therapist because people and suffering are eclectic, and I am loathed to set up my practice as a 'box' one must fit into (including myself). Rather, I want to know as much as I can--about as much as I can--so that one's unique individuality is met with individual treatment in each individual session. My foundation is in mindfulness-based, humanistic, and attachment-oriented approaches. However, I'm trained in CBT and am well-versed in Internal Family Systems.

— Casey Black, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I consider myself the anti-magician of therapy. Early on I will help you define goals and come back with a menu of recommended, research based treatment options. WE will collaborate on what your treatment will look like and I will let you know all the 'tricks' I use and why. Our time together will be custom fit to you, your goals, and your needs.

— Cody Glover, Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin, TX

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.

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

Eclectic therapy is an approach that draws on multiple theoretical orientations and techniques. We use the best approach for You. We meet the client where they are.

— Marina Krugolets, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Staten Island, NY

I am trained in multiple modalities to help you as there is no one right modality. I pull from multiple techniques to meet you where you are. Here-and-now approaches that focus on the present manifestations of symptoms are extremely helpful. Solution-focused therapies can be the best choice depending on what you're experiencing. Similarly, therapies that connect the past to the present in a here-and-now way can provide healing for many people and help you with future dilemmas.

— Patrick Tully, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA

There is no one size fits all approach when it comes to mental health. Some modalities will work better with some clients, and some modalities will not. I do not take a cookie cutter approach to my work the clients.

— Michael Burson, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in Cornelius, NC
