A number of issues may need to be addressed during individual counseling. The method of therapy varies with each client. Although not an eclectic approach, it is an integrative approach depending on individual needs. Brief therapy is utilized with minor problems in times of transition and change. Long term therapy is advised with client who has issues that need additional support. Many techniques that are utilized in therapy include experiential techniques, family of origin issues, and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Each family is unique and has its own strengths and weaknesses. Focusing on family strengths provides the family with a foundation to build upon.
