Individual Therapy

Short-Term
Short-term individual psychotherapy is geared toward symptom management. The emphasis is on learning new strategies to better manage a specific concern or an area of your life. For example, you may learn new skills to manage anxiety, depression, stress, improve communication, and so forth. Short-term therapy is brief in duration and may consist of just a few sessions. It is typically goal directed, action oriented, and effective. However, the symptoms may return, because the core of the issue remains unaddressed.

Long-Term
Long-term individual psychotherapy is open-ended and is geared toward in-depth exploration of your concerns. The goal is to move beyond symptom management in order to address the underlying source of your problem. You may explore self-limiting beliefs, maladaptive relational and behavioral patterns, address family of origin issues, process trauma, address grief & loss, work on attachment issues, and so forth. Long-term therapy might be more effective, because you addressed the root problem, thus the symptoms are less likely to return.
