Therapy

Because mental health includes our thoughts, feelings and social behavior, mental health therapists help clients grow and heal in these areas. Our team of therapists works with individuals, couples and families on a wide range of challenges, such as depression and anxiety, behavioral issues, family concerns and major life stressors. You can feel confident that your therapist is highly trained to serve you with research supported tools, including approaches such as:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Play and Sand Tray Therapy
  • Gottman Couples Therapy
  • Trauma-Focus Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)

Therapy services begin with an initial intake assessment where you and your therapist will explore your present concerns as well as history across life domains. Your therapist will use this information to determine a diagnosis and to work with you on goals for the therapy process, such as developing coping skills, improving mood and life engagement, strengthening relationships, or healing past trauma.

Therapy is typically provided by licensed social workers, mental health counselors, or marriage and family therapists. Therapists hold a master’s degree and complete additional training in specific interventions. Our therapists work closely with medication management and community support providers, as well as any other supports that you feel are appropriate, such as school staff or faith leaders.

Therapy services are provided in our clinic as well as in a school-based setting in the Harlan Community School District.
