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 use an eclectic mix of interventions and modalities based on your needs. I don't believe in "one size fits all", where it sometimes takes a combination of remedies and modalities to achieve your goals.

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.

As mentioned above, I work with my clients from an integrative approach (aka, eclectic therapy) because I believe in utilizing interventions from different therapeutic areas to help my clients better manage their mental health symptoms and stress. There is no "one size fits all" in psychotherapy because every client is a unique individual who will have various needs over the course of treatment.

— Angela Rodriguez-Heller, Licensed Mental Health Counselor

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

I utilize varied modalities depending on your strengths, needs, and preferences. Eclectic therapy is all about doing what works for you specifically. This can include examining thoughts, emotions, and behaviors through talk therapy, art, CBT, DBT, SFBT, or yoga-informed therapy.

We are complex and multifaceted beings. We have our individual experiences and are called to live out our unique journey. I am here to support you in that journey. I am here to support you in your journey towards healing and living your best authentic life.

— Rosalind Herrington-Moxon, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in Olympia, WA

We will use self-discovery to process trauma, grief, destructive patterns or difficult situations or relationships. We will look backward to understand who you are today but also prepare and practice new ways of thinking and dealing with the challenges and opportunities the future holds, but therapy should put you in the driver’s seat. While I am comfortable using many modalities, the direction we go in, the depth that our discussions contain, and the topics we dive into, is up to you.

— Amanda Trost, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in Houston, TX

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

I believe there is more than one way towards the path of healing. We are multifaceted beings with many layers. Together we will discover what works for you.

— Rosalind Herrington-Moxon, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate in Olympia, WA

"Eclectic Therapy" is basically a mix of a bunch of different therapy models. For me, it means that I don't try and use one specific model with all clients. Instead, I ground myself in various models and find which one fits you best. I understand that everyone is different and that the therapeutic process will look different for each person. That's why my work is collaborative and person-centered. I'm never going to put you in a box or expect you to conform to one therapy model.

— Brittany Graham, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist

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.
