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.

My therapeutic style integrates multiple modalities. I believe that our styles must align with the needs of our clients.

— Elyssa Helfer, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

My work with clients is informed by a variety of modalities, including psychodynamic, humanistic, narrative, and solution-focused approaches. I like to incorporate CBT and mindfulness, particularly for clients who are struggling with anxiety, stress, and burnout. I believe that different people respond to different approaches, and I enjoy having the ability to provide my client with what will be most beneficial to them, regardless of the modality that it comes from.

I have an eclectic theoretical perspective and create planned change through a problem solving process. I am creative, flexible and solution focused.

— Rachelle Miller, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Spokane Valley, WA

I am trained in multiple modalities to help you as there is no one right modality. I pull from multiple techniques to meet you where you are. Here-and-now approaches that focus on the present manifestations of symptoms are extremely helpful. Solution-focused therapies can be the best choice depending on what you're experiencing. Similarly, therapies that connect the past to the present in a here-and-now way can provide healing for many people and help you with future dilemmas.

— Patrick Tully, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA

I do not believe in a one size fits all approach to therapy. We will most likely use a few different modalities in our work together, whatever fits best for your goals and interests.

— Brooke Houser, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Ypsilanti, MI

I use several approaches to therapy and find that individual approaches to each person’s needs often produces the best results. Eclectic therapy a focuses on a collaborative approach between the client and therapist in order to customize and provide individually tailored treatment.

— Lauren Butcher, Social Worker in Garland, TX

I use an eclectic therapeutic approach in order to provide personalized therapy tailored to each person’s individual needs. I rely on evidence-based and solution-focused modalities and incorporate them based on individual needs. Eclectic therapy is a flexible approach that allows me to collaborate with clients and treat each person based on their specific needs and goals.

— Lauren Butcher, Social Worker in Garland, TX

I have training in a number of therapeutic modalities including Motivational Interviewing, CBT, and SFBT. I use an eclectic approach when working with children and teens. I am able to tailor my interventions to their needs.

— Marquia Anderson, Counselor in Flourtown, PA

I consider myself the anti-magician of therapy. Early on I will help you define goals and come back with a menu of recommended, research based treatment options. WE will collaborate on what your treatment will look like and I will let you know all the 'tricks' I use and why. Our time together will be custom fit to you, your goals, and your needs.

— Cody Glover, Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin, TX

I utilize an eclectic counseling approach adapting techniques from evidence-based counseling therapies to suit your needs based on your unique situation and aspired goals. The therapies I often borrow from are Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Existential Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. Many of the techniques in these therapies are designed to illuminate the innate strengths and resources you possess and develop new insights leading to greater self-awareness and conscious action.

— Jerry Ochoa, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Turlock, CA

Eclectic Therapy is about pulling from all the different orientations and finding the one that best fits the client and that is what I truly strive for. Just like everyone learns differently, we all respond to different types of therapy differently. I'm quick to learn your personality and find the best approach for you and how to help learn more about yourself with the best treatment orientation.

— Chase Tucker, Licensed Professional Counselor in Lakewood, CO

There is no one singular client whose experience and reality is applicable to all. Each person, individual, couple, even family is a collective gathering of life. Thus there can not possibly be only one manner in which we should approach therapy. I will use any therapeutic tool, training, or technique to help my clients. Clients are as different as their personality and my therapeutic approach is tailored to their individual needs.

— Andrea Earle, Licensed Professional Counselor in Denton, TX

My academic and professional experience made me become an eclectic therapist. I have a Ph.D. in integrative mental health with a specialization in mind-body medicine, an MS in Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling, an MSc in Health Psychology and Clinical Psychology. My certifications as an advanced clinical hypnotherapist, as a yoga instructor, along with numerous training in the area have helped me to customize therapeutic interventions according to clients' needs.

— Noelia Leite, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Miami, FL

I love to learn and grow. I will take what works for people wherever I find it or am taught it. I try and use the client's perspective and worldview to help them understand the what, why, and how of their experiences and use this to make change for the future.

— Michelle Wexelblat MSW Counseling, Clinical Social Worker

Eclectic therapy is a mix and match of different theories to customize treatment according to what you need. Every person requesting therapy is different, as is their story, and that is why incorporating a multi-model approach is effective. My sessions offer the freedom to speak your mind and share your deepest secrets, to let go, and process them through your mind, and finally experience true peace. Let's see if we can work together and enjoy the journey!

— Jocelyn Morris-Bryant, MA, LMFT, LPCC, MPA, Marriage & Family Therapist in Long Beach, CA

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