Individuals who are having difficulty coping with life or who have issues that are interfering with their ability to function can receive more than one type of service to enhance the treatment process. You can receive individual and family therapy, or individual and group therapy. You can go to the same therapist for all the services, or you can go to different therapists for each of them. This can be determined by you and your therapist.

Some therapists who do couples therapy prefer not to do individual therapy with the couple.
