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.

As mentioned above, I work with my clients from an integrative approach (aka, eclectic therapy) because I believe in utilizing interventions from different therapeutic areas to help my clients better manage their mental health symptoms and stress. There is no "one size fits all" in psychotherapy because every client is a unique individual who will have various needs over the course of treatment.

— Angela Rodriguez-Heller, Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Eclectic therapy is an open, integrative form of psychotherapy that adapts to the unique needs of each specific client, depending on the problem, the treatment goals, and the person’s expectations and motivation.. In effect, an eclectic therapist customizes the therapeutic process for each individual by using whatever form of treatment, or combination of treatments, has been shown to be most effective for treating the particular problem.

— Christine Chenitz, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Kennett Square, PA

I recognize that our lives are incredibly complicated and that one particular therapeutic approach does not work for everyone. Most of my training is in behavioral therapy, particularly Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, but I also incorporate principles from Internal Family Systems (IFS), grief therapy, and trauma-informed practices in my work with clients.

I use a combination of Family Systems and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approaches.

We will use self-discovery to process trauma, grief, destructive patterns or difficult situations or relationships. We will look backward to understand who you are today but also prepare and practice new ways of thinking and dealing with the challenges and opportunities the future holds, but therapy should put you in the driver’s seat. While I am comfortable using many modalities, the direction we go in, the depth that our discussions contain, and the topics we dive into, is up to you.
