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 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.

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.

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.

Eclectic Therapy is about pulling from all the different orientations and finding the one that best fits the client and that is what I truly strive for. Just like everyone learns differently, we all respond to different types of therapy differently. I'm quick to learn your personality and find the best approach for you and how to help learn more about yourself with the best treatment orientation.

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.
