Eclectic Therapy

Eclectic therapy is a highly personalized therapeutic approach tailored to meet the individual client’s needs. It combines a variety of treatment orientations, techniques, and philosophies to create a custom program. Rather than adhering to a specific therapeutic approach, an eclectic therapist is flexible, using whichever techniques work best for a client. An eclectic therapist will usually balance listening and advice giving, as well as use all techniques that are available to them to treat their clients as successfully as possible. Think this approach might be right for you? Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s eclectic therapy specialists today.

In my sessions, I like to use approaches that best fit the client. I pull from CBT, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, family systems and strength based approaches.

— Karen Maloney, Licensed Professional Counselor in Portland, OR

My therapeutic style is eclectic in that I often mix a variety of intervention techniques depending on your treatment goals and needs that day. Some sessions will include mostly reflection and deepening clarity of your inner workings, others might include pyschoeducation and skills building. I like to use infographics to information or to help to link personality traits, communication styles, and symptoms. I also suggest media to take in outside of session to deepen work done in session.

I'm extensively trained and experienced in a number of treatment modalities- Soldier's Heart, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), EMDR, Gottman Method Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Psychodynamic Therapy, Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS), Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), and more. BUT... I meet you where YOU are, I don't impose any agenda on you and what you're dealing with.

— Donald McCasland, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

The field of Social Work, unlike other mental health fields, orients itself to a "person-in-environment" perspective. This means that no one modality is going to prove effective in treating every client. You are as unique as the history you bring into the room with you, therefore I pull skills and tools from the therapies listed below as we continue to progress through your therapeutic process together.

What is eclectic therapy? Simply put, I am no purist.

Eclectic therapy is an approach that draws from multiple theoretical orientations and techniques. It allows me the flexibility to meet your needs in the best way possible without relying on one method of therapy. I can easily transition from one technique to another to best guide you in finding the answers you want to live a more fulfilling life.

Eclectic therapy is a form of psychotherapy that adapts to the unique needs of each patient, depending on the problem, the treatment goals, and the person’s expectations and motivation. An eclectic therapist draws from a variety of disciplines and may use a range of proven methods to determine the best combination of therapeutic tools to help a patient. In effect, an eclectic therapist customizes the therapeutic process for each individual.

— Patricia Davila, Counselor in Phoenix, AZ

I combine many treatment methodologies and techniques to best fit the person in front of me and their needs. This allows us to create new and more possibilities together. Coming to therapy can be hard, and providing treatment that is about what you want and need, not applying a theory to you, is the best route to healing and feeling better.
