Inova Behavioral Health Services offers short-term, solution-focused therapy to help people facing a particular challenge. Therapy can help individuals who have been diagnosed with a mental health disorder as well as people who are working through a distressing life event or situation.
Individual therapy is a way to solidify life changes someone has begun to make or wants to learn how to make. Patients meet weekly with a therapist to learn strategies and skills that will help them cope with particular issues.
How it works:
- Therapy is structured as a series of weekly appointments for up to 12 weeks total.
- During the initial meeting, the therapist and patient work together to set goals.
- Then, the therapist uses an evidence-based, solution-focused counseling approach that may include cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, skill building, mindfulness and other techniques.
