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 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 Clinical Social Worker in Wylie, TX

I am trained in several modalities and draw on many of them depending on the individual client and what they are working on. I don't believe "one size fits all" and thats why I like to pull from different orientations to best serve my clients.

— David Strah, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA

Eclectic to me, means a model that allows me to integrate different approaches and theories to best serve my client's needs. I was trained to listen deeply in a very robust, clinical, client-centered, and holistic model of psychotherapy where issues like anxiety and depression could be engaged with from either a psychodynamic perspective or a cognitive behavioural one. When notions from the world of Gestalt therapy are helpful, then I will use those etc.

— Lisa Ndejuru, Psychotherapist in Montreal,

We make an appointment for you to have an intake. You share about your life, dreams and goals. I then make an individualized treatment plan specifically for you.

— Michelle Tribe, Mental Health Counselor in VANCOUVER, WA

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 New York, NY

I don't believe that any one type of therapy fits every client. I may pull techniques or methods from different therapeutic modalities so that you have a well rounded experience.

— Maryann Dexter, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in BAD AXE, MI

I am always learning. I draw from many different therapy orientations to deal with what the individual in front of me needs. I'm more process-based in what I do. All therapies can help someone, but not all therapies can help you. I like to see what you need and then "shop" for the best approach for you.

— Donna Kerington, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in Austin, TX

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.

— Lisa Serrano, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

I use eclectic therapy to discover and implement the most effective treatment for each individual. Instead of following any defined structure, eclectic therapy pulls from various therapy techniques to treat each person as a unique individual.

— Neeka Wittern, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist Intern in Las Vegas, NV, NV

My approach to therapy is that we are all unique and complex beings, and it is rare that one fixed treatment is the right one for everyone all the time. I like to incorporate a variety of styles depending on the client and the situation, and above all I believe you are the expert on your own experience. You already contain the capacity to heal and grow yourself; I am just here to remind you it is there.

— Luke Hirst, Licensed Clinical Social Worker - Candidate in Durham, NC

Through a flexible and collaborative process, I draw on various theoretical orientations, such as cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and humanistic, to tailor interventions to individual preferences and presenting concerns. My adaptable approach allows me to combine techniques from different modalities to address cognitive, emotional, and behavioral aspects of clients' experiences. By incorporating a range of therapeutic tools, I aim to provide a holistic approach to mental wellbeing.

— Morgan Thompson, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in , TX

My therapeutic approach is above all client-centered, bringing a wide variety of therapeutic strategies and modalities to fit the needs of each specific client. We are all different and thus will respond to different types of treatments. I listen to each client to understand what might best work for them and assist in their individual growth.

— eric bjorlin, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Evanston, IL

I embrace Eclectic Therapy as a dynamic tool for personalized healing. Recognizing that each individual is unique, I draw from a diverse range of therapeutic modalities tailored to meet specific needs. This flexible approach allows me to integrate elements from cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, and humanistic therapies.

— Alex Kawliche, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Tampa, FL

I always try to incorporate humor into my sessions to alleviate stress and help clients find some joy, even for a moment, in their lives.

— Rachael Lastoff, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Newport, KY

We believe that we are complex people and we work from a lens of exploring your whole life. We value creating a safe place space to understand your true identity and thrive in your current situation. We believe that our clients are experts on themselves and collaborate with you in our work together. We use evidence-based therapies such as EMDR, CBT, DBT, and EFT. Therapy is not a one-size-fits-all and we adjust our approach to fit your needs. We also incorporated clay, art, and horses.

— Colorado Experiential Counseling, Licensed Professional Counselor in Colorado Springs, CO

In my sessions, I like to use approaches that best fit the client. I pull from CBT, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, family systems and strength based approaches.

— Karen Maloney, Licensed Professional Counselor in Portland, OR

I offer a variety of tools: EMDR, DBT, Internal Family Systems, trauma-informed cognitive work, anger expression, art work using SoulCollage(r), somatic work including breath training, use of 101 Trauma-Informed Interventions and more.

— Cathy S Harris, Counselor in San Diego, CA

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.

— Personal Empowerment and Digital Media Addiction Therapist Natalie Worobel, Licensed Professional Counselor in Denver, CO

As a therapist I borrow from different approaches and in my work I blend them. I am trained in Structural and Strategic Family Therapy and in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, but I borrow ideas and techniques from Cognitive Therapy. Like most therapists, I use techniques of listening, reflecting, exploring history, and creating a relationship, that are grounded in Rogerian and Psychodynamic approaches.

— Daniel Minuchin, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in ,

Eclectic therapy is an approach that allows the therapist to use different methods to cater to the client's individual needs. While addressing the client's needs, the therapist, when needed, will utilize multiple theoretical orientations to help maximize the client's potential to gain insights by drawing upon different forms of learning. I believe the flexibility in eclectic therapy enables the therapist-client relationship to develop a treatment plan best suited for the client.
