Each client at Encore Recovery Solutions receives individual psychotherapy from a licensed clinician at a masters or doctorate level. Our therapists have expertise in treating a range of issues including – but not limited to – substance use disorders, trauma, grief and loss, attachment, mood and anxiety disorders, and self-harm and suicidality. The frequency of individual sessions varies depending upon needs, ranging from every day to once per week; however, the beginning phase of treatment includes more intensive and frequent individual work in order to develop a tailored treatment plan in an efficient and effective manner.

At Encore Recovery Solutions, individual therapists are an integral part of a larger interdisciplinary treatment team made up of family and group therapists, a family physician, psychiatrist, holistic practitioners, and specialized skills coaches. The individual therapist meets with all members of the team multiple times per week throughout treatment to better understand our clients and their needs from multiple perspectives; to collaborate on individualized treatment planning; and to monitor progress across therapeutic goals.

Treatment is not a one-size- fits-all approach, and we believe individual psychotherapy provides the foundation of our personalized treatment model. This intimate relationship allows the therapist to not only understand clients’ problems, but also the unique story that explains how they find themselves in their current situation. In contrast to practices that focus on symptoms and addiction as discrete and disconnected issues, our mission is to understand all aspects of the individual, their environment, and their story.
