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.

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.

I apply technique approaches with clients with the focus question in my mind being: "what is the best way to reduce symptoms for this individual client?" I draw from my intuition as well for best case conceptualization and seek to create a strong, therapeutic bond; research shows the bond is 85% of the success in therapy alone.

As I see it, understanding what is going on for each specific person means using an individualistic approach to therapeutic change. As we talk together in the therapy room, I often bring up different interventions and perspectives from different modalities, and together we consider if these approaches might be helpful in reducing symptoms and increasing wellness.

— Jessica Foley, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Waltham, MA

My work is tailored to the individual client. I work with attachment theory in mind and am extremely attuned to how the client -therapist relationship is critical to growth. I am also mindful of the unconscious issues that underlie presenting symptoms and behaviors. EMDR, hypnosis, art, movement, CBT are tools to be utilized with care. There is no "one size fits all." Above all, I am trauma informed and sensitive to hidden issues.

— Chelle Epstein, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Miami, FL

I dabble in multiple different orientations and meet each person exactly where they are, I do not believe that one approach will fit all.

— Brittney Grammer, Counselor in Littleton, CO

Clients should not be run through a favored therapy. Each person, each couple or family has its own issues and needs, and therapy should adapt to meet them there. Eclectic therapy, essentially means individualizing to whatever is the most relevant and prominent issues to lead to the healing, growth, change, or decisions required for health and personal growth. Attachment, trauma, insight, embedded values, compulsions/addictions, abuse, culture, & many other issues demand specific treatment.
