What are the different types of therapy?

There are different types of modalities for outpatient therapy:  individual, couples, family, and group.

  • Individual therapy – when a person is distressed, he/she meets with a therapist one on one.
  • Family therapy – when there is a family discord it calls for all family members to meet with a therapist.
  • Couples therapy – when a couple is having a relationship conflict, the couple meets with a therapist. Some people prefer to have individual therapy even though the goal is to improve the relationship with their partner.
  • Group therapy – when an individual joins other individuals who are having similar problems, they meet together as a group with a therapist. Group therapy can get fairly large.

Kim says: I provide individual, family and couples therapy. Currently I do not provide group therapy.
