Individual Therapy

Individual Therapy for Mental Health

At Wings,individual therapy is at the core of the treatment experience. When you join one of our San Diego mental health treatment programs (residential, PHP, or IOP) you will be assigned an individual therapist immediately, and have your first session within 24 hours.

Our Individualized Approach to Therapy

Your individual therapist will ask you questions to get to know you and your story, and will work with you to develop a treatment plan to meet your needs. Whether you are coming to treatment for trauma and PTSD, DID, depression, or another mental health issue, your therapist will work with you to help you heal.

Evidence-Based, Trauma-Focused Therapy

All of our therapists have at least a master’s degree in a mental health field and are licensed or registered with the state of California. And unlike many other programs, all of our therapists receive training in the special skills needed to effectively treat trauma and trauma-based disorders.

Our therapists use a wide range of evidence-based therapies as part of your treatment. These may include CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, EMDR, and IFS. Click here to learn more about our treatment approach. 


Individual Therapy Schedule

In our Residental and PHP programs, you will meet with your therapist twice per week for individual therapy. After transitioning to IOP, you will continue to see your therapist once per week.

All residential and PHP patients also have the option of meeting with a highly trained trauma therapist up to twice per week as well. Additionally, patients may meet with a psychiatrist for medication management and a nutritional counselor once per week.

All told, that’s up to six individual sessions per week—much more than is offered at most other treatment centers. This is one of the core features of treatment at Wings, and a part of our program that we are very proud of.

At Wings, you will never be left to suffer alone. We believe that the individual attention and care you receive at Wings is a crucial part of your successful recovery.

A San Diego Primary Mental Health Treatment Center Specializing in Trauma

At Wings, we know that choosing the right mental health treatment center for you can be confusing. There are so many options, and not all of them are reputable or a good fit for you as an individual.

We opened Wings as a women’s treatment center because especially when you are healing from trauma, a safe, distraction-free environment provides the best atmosphere for healing. And the women you meet in treatment may just become lifelong friends and companions on the road to recovery.

We have also worked hard to gain a seal of approval from the Joint Commission, the highest level of accreditation in the treatment field. Our Joint Commission approval is our guarantee to you to provide the highest level of holistic, evidence-based treatment in San Diego.
