Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a form of talk therapy that helps individuals develop a greater sense of psychological flexibility and acceptance toward their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. ACT aims to help individuals live a more meaningful and valued life, even in the presence of psychological pain. In ACT, individuals can learn to better manage difficult emotions and situations by embracing their past experiences and cultivating positive new thoughts and behaviors.
Behavioral Activation Therapy
Behavioral activation therapy focuses on helping individuals identify and engage in activities that bring them pleasure and satisfaction to increase overall feelings of well-being and reduce the symptoms of depression. It emphasizes the connection between behaviors, thoughts, and emotions, encouraging clients to take practical steps toward positive change.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of talk therapy that helps clients identify and change their negative behaviors and thought patterns. CBT is based on the premise that thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected and that negative patterns in one area can have a significant effect on others. This evidence-based therapy focuses on present experiences and challenges and helps participants develop healthy coping skills. CBT has been shown to be effective for a variety of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Couples counseling focuses on improving communication and resolving conflicts between partners in romantic relationships. At Harmony, couples can find a supportive environment where both individuals can freely and openly express their feelings, working together to find solutions to any challenges they may be facing in the relationship. This type of mental health counseling can help couples deepen their connection, improve communication, strengthen healthy bonds and boundaries, and boost their overall satisfaction with the relationship.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy that was specifically designed to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder. Since then, it has also been adapted to treat a variety of other mental health conditions. DBT teaches clients skills to help them regulate emotions, manage stress, and improve relationships. Mindfulness techniques, along with more traditional behavioral therapy techniques utilized within DBT, can help participants develop better emotional regulation and improve their quality of life.
Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an evidence-based approach that helps clients acknowledge, process, and overcome their traumatic memories. The therapy involves having the participant follow the therapist’s moving finger or light with their eyes while thinking about the traumatic event, which can help reduce the intensity of the memory. Individuals work toward growth, healing, and resolution in EMDR therapy.
Exposure therapy involves systematic and gradual exposure to something that the participant fears in a controlled and safe environment. The goal of exposure therapy is to help the client overcome their anxiety or phobia by confronting and eventually overcoming the fear.
Family therapy involves all members of an entire family. This type of counseling is designed to help families work through challenges, improve communication and relationships, and resolve conflicts with the help of a mediating therapist. In a supportive and collaborative environment, family members can address the behaviors and attitudes of each member freely and openly, helping to create a more harmonious and functional household.
Family Systems Therapy
Family systems therapy focuses on the relationships and interactions between members of a family. The goal is to address emotional and behavioral problems by exploring underlying family dynamics and patterns of interaction and how they contribute to the issues. This therapy aims to enhance overall functionality and improve the mental health of the individuals within the family system by improving communication and promoting understanding between family members.
Group therapy is a form of mental health therapy that involves a small group of people facing similar things participating in therapy together with a trained therapist. In a supportive environment, participants can share their experiences, thoughts, and feelings with others who understand what they are going through. Group therapy can be especially helpful for individuals dealing with depression, social anxiety, trauma, or relationship issues. At Harmony, our group therapy sessions are designed to promote healing and growth in a safe, inclusive, and empowering environment that is free from judgment.
Humanistic therapy focuses on personal growth and unique experiences. It emphasizes the participant’s capacity for self-reflection and encourages them to live in the moment instead of dwelling on the past. The goal of humanistic therapy is to help individuals develop a greater sense of self-awareness and to find fulfillment in their lives by connecting with their own inner emotions, thoughts, and needs.
Interpersonal therapy (IPT) is short-term talk therapy that helps participants improve their communication skills and interpersonal relationships. This therapy focuses on the current relationships and social interactions a person has in order to address emotional and behavioral problems.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
Mindfulness-based stress reduction teaches participants to focus on the present moment and cultivate awareness of their thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations. This approach can reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress by cultivating a more balanced relationship with their experiences.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy
Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) combines elements of mindfulness meditation and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). It helps participants recognize and challenge negative thoughts and emotions, learning to replace them with positive and more adaptive ways of thinking that ultimately lead to reduced symptoms of depression, anxiety, and stress.
Psychodynamic therapy is a type of mental health therapy that focuses on the unconscious mind and past experiences to help participants better understand their thoughts and behaviors in the present. The goal of this approach is to uncover repressed emotions and experiences that may be affecting one’s relationships and actions and to use that understanding to bring about healthy, positive changes in the person’s life. Often, psychodynamic therapy involves exploring early childhood experiences and relationships with caregivers to gain insight into the root causes of current emotional and psychological challenges.
