Our Approach to Individual Therapy at Olive Branch Therapy Group
We acknowledge that you are the person you will spend the most time with in your life’s journey. It is absolutely vital to feel fulfilled and confident in your own skin in order to achieve true happiness. We are proactive in giving you the individual and specific tools that you need to find balance and healing in your life. Your story is unique to you and our approach to therapy meets you where you are.
Common therapy methods we use to help you become your best self include:
Psychodynamic Therapy: This therapy is all about talking about your thoughts and feelings. This therapy brings unconscious patterns of behavior to the forefront of your mind, allowing us to help you develop ways to change these thoughts and actions.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT is based on the idea that we can change negative thoughts through practicing positive thinking. Together we identify behaviors you’d like to change and what steps you need to take in order to do that.
Interpersonal Therapy: Relationships can be difficult. Interpersonal therapy focuses on your relationship with other people and how things like anxiety or depression affects those connections.
While these are not the only kinds of psychotherapy we apply when counseling individuals, we are always sure to employ a mix of therapies to fit you and your individual needs.
What to Expect in Individual Therapy
You’ve taken the first step to finding the help you deserve to achieve peace. Now, here’s what most individual therapy sessions look like:
- An initial session, introducing you to your therapist and vice versa
- An intake assessment, to look at your family history, mental health history and anything else that may apply to concerns you have
- Subsequent visits where we:
- Encourage you to discuss your problems in depth.
- Look at tools and methods we can employ to help you in life’s journey.
- Eventually work towards a healthy and happy resolution.
As always, each individual is, well, an individual, meaning everyone has their own needs and desires. Each individual therapy session is unique and may employ different methods and timelines.

Summer can be a nostalgic time. The days are long, the weather is finally nice and warm, and best of all, school is out. There’s nothing like summertime when you’re a kid – the days last forever and you never seem to run out of things to explore. As adults, though, we’ve kind of lost the magic of summer. Especially after a year spent indoors and isolated, it might feel like summer is just another season to get through. This year more than ever, though, we deserve to make time for fun and childlike joy. We’ve been through a lot this past year. We have a lot of healing to do both collectively and individually and working with your inner child can be a healing practice. Summer tends to be a time of fewer responsibilities, so it can be the perfect opportunity to spend some time on yourself.
As we enter March, we’re also entering one full year of enduring this pandemic.
While COVID of course didn’t just appear overnight in March 2020, that’s when we started seeing wide scale shut downs, and when our day to day lives started to change long-term.
It is a very difficult thing to have survived a year of sustained trauma, which is what we have all had to do this last year.
