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.

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!
