About West Coast Behavioral's Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is also known as psychotherapy, talk therapy, or “treatment.” It involves working one-on-one in a confidential, safe and caring environment with a qualified mental health professional. Individual counseling is a way to examine your feelings, beliefs, and behaviors to work through complex or influential memories. 

During individual counseling, you’ll identify aspects of life that you want to change, better understand others, and set goals to achieve your desired results vary.  In short, when you can’t see the forest for the trees, we can help.

Individual counseling focuses on your immediate and near-term concerns. Individual counseling can include career planning and counseling, grief after the death of a loved one, or handling problems at work before they become unsolvable. Counseling involves a one-on-1 conversation between the counselor and you. Together, you’ll both form an alliance, relationship, or bond that fosters trust and personal growth.

What are the Therapy Goals, Frequency and Duration for Individual Counseling?

With Individual Counseling at West Coast Behavioral Healthcare, the goal is to help you overcome your mental health issues and grow. Individual Counseling is client-driven. Your therapist will work with you to determine your goals.  Your clinician will help you establish goals early on. Clear goals will help guide you and allow you to track your progress in counseling.

Your counselor will be happy to answer any questions you may have about counseling. Your counselor’s view of the issues you bring to counseling and your goals for the work will determine your counseling experience. 

Sessions of individual counseling last approximately an hour, sometimes a little more. Your needs, progress, and treatment goals will determine the frequency and length of individual counseling sessions. While many issues can be resolved quickly with short-term therapy; other complex or chronic problems require long-term commitment to achieve improvement.

How Much will Individual Counseling Cost?

Sliding fee schedules, payment plans, late night and weekend hours make our facility available to those required to have Individual Counseling by Pinellas County authorities.  We work closely with probation, city, and county officials to get you the help you need when you need it.

COVID-19 Update Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, we are taking extra precautions

We are prepared 

We are committed to providing safe and professional services to our customers. The service we provide can be of importance even during natural disasters or global pandemics, like the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We have business continuity plans in place, so our teams can handle challenges and perform their work during difficult situations. 


Extra safety precautions

With confirmed cases of COVID-19 growing in our service territory, our employees are taking extra safety precautions to protect you and the public at large. When work requires us to be in close contact with a customer, we will take the following steps: 

  • We will ask customers if anyone at home is under self-isolation for the COVID-19 virus or experiencing flu-like symptoms. 
  • If a customer is under self-isolation for the COVID-19 virus, we will postpone the work until after the customer's isolation period ends. 
  • If the work must be completed, we will attempt to complete sessions via phone, video, etc. This is a step we are taking out of an abundance of caution.
  • If a customer requests that our employees wear a face mask or gloves, they will comply whenever possible and practical. 

Steps you can take to mitigate the spread of COVID-19

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash if a tissue is not available. Cough or sneeze into the sleeve of your shirt or elbow – not your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Minimize contact with people who are coughing or look ill.
  • Consider your travel plans and check with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for outbreak updates.
