Individual therapy: Therapy tailored for a client that is administered one-on-one—therapist and client.
Couples/family therapy: Both approaches involve discussions and problem-solving sessions facilitated by a therapist—sometimes with the couple, sometimes with the entire family group and sometimes with individuals. Such therapy can help couples and family members improve their understanding of, and the way they respond to, one another.
