Individual Therapy

“I just might have a problem that you’d understand. We all need somebody to lean on.”
– Lean on Me, by Bill Withers

Counseling Solutions For Individuals

What is Individual Therapy?

As the name suggests, Individual Counseling is where an adult client and a therapist collaborate one-on-one to achieve goals defined by the client. Goals for therapy vary greatly, as do the number of sessions necessary to achieve those goals.

Why seek Individual Counseling?

Unlike speaking with your good buddy Paul or your Aunt Edna, Therapists are trained to be unbiased and objective. Further, Individual Therapy is a good place to say the hard truths you wouldn’t feel comfortable saying to others. A hard truth might be, “I don’t feel like a good mother,” or “I have trouble getting out of bed in the morning.” And sometimes we just get stuck in a rut and need the help of a professional to help gain perspective and courage. Individual Therapy can help you foster a sense of well-being, increase self-esteem, identify healthy coping strategies, and work through difficult situations we all find ourselves in.

    • Dear Parent/Guardian:

      Your student has been referred to the School Counseling Telehealth Program with Building Blocks Family Counseling. This is a collaboration between the Effingham School System and Building Blocks Family Counseling- a mental health private practice with locations in Savannah, Pooler, and Rincon.

      How does it work?

      A referral will be sent from your student’s school counselor to Building Blocks. You will receive a call from our office to set up an appointment, get insurance information, complete paperwork, etc. An online intake appointment will be scheduled for your student during the school day (based on times provided by the school counselor). An online intake appointment will also be scheduled between your student’s therapist and yourself to gather information regarding your student. The Therapist will schedule routine parent/guardian check-ins with you and family sessions as needed. Sessions with students will generally be weekly (during school hours) and last for 30-45 minutes. Parent/Guardian sessions can be held during or after school hours and last for 45-50 minutes.

      Paperwork Needed

      In order to provide these services we need the following paperwork completed for each student. A new client intake packet, child/adolescent questionnaire, and a release of information for the school counselor. We will be coordinating sessions with your student through the school counselors at their school so it is important we have the release of information completed.

      Appointments

      Appointment reminders via email, text, and phone will be sent the day before any scheduled appointments. Please make sure we have the best contact information on file so you will receive all of the reminders.

      If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to address these with your therapist. If you feel like your student no longer needs services, please also communicate this with your therapist.
