Individual Therapy

Individual psychotherapy sessions last 50 minutes and involve one-on-one conversations with the therapist. Sessions may be scheduled once, twice or three times per week depending upon the needs of the patient.

Dr. Mager takes an individualized approach, formulating a treatment plan that is dependent upon the needs of the patient. Most treatments draw from a combination of cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, relational and interpersonal techniques in order to aid the patient in learning new and more functional coping mechanisms, emotion regulation and interpersonal communication skills.

Dr. Mager advocates a team-approach when necessary, working with nutritionists, physicians and psychiatrists to aid the patient in his or her recovery.
