The style and therapeutic modality used for an adult is individual and dependent upon the challenges one faces. Similar to working with teens, the approach may be unique to you, but the framework is based in evidence-based therapies such as CBT, DBT, ACT and interpersonal therapy.
When beginning therapy, it is important to understand the client's goals and create a plan that feels comfortable to both the client and therapist. Therefore, a new client/family will have a 1.5 hour initial session to establish this plan and ensure services are a good fit. Ongoing therapy sessions run between 50-60 minutes and typically are weekly or biweekly.
