Individual therapy is provided one-on-one with a counselor and if necessary throughout your treatment additional friends/family members may attend on a short term basis.
Individual therapy is usually provided by a psychologist, clinical social worker or licensed counselor. These professionals have graduate or postgraduate degrees in a psychology/human services related field.
You will play a large role in the creation of your treatment plan, thus being guided by your counselor. It is important that you share your concerns and goals with your counselor, as they will be incorporated into your treatment plan.
