A few common symptoms of depression include:
Feeling sad, empty or hopeless all day, nearly everyday
Having a sense of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt most days
Experiencing thoughts of death or suicide
Loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed.
At Harmony House Counseling, our trained therapists are here to provide you with empathic listening, encouragement and the support you need to navigate through this challenging state of mind. We focus on identifying the root causes of your depression, not just managing the symptoms, in order to foster true healing and personal growth.
Trauma is defined as a deeply distressing or disturbing experience of a real or perceived threat to your well-being. Experiencing trauma can leave lasting effects on your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. Our trauma counseling services are designed to help you unpack these experiences in a safe and trusting environment and find a path towards healing. Our therapists are specifically trained in trauma-informed EMDR Therapy that is effective to resolve trauma in a way that significantly lessens and even, in most cases, eliminate the impact of trauma in your life.
Anxiety and fear often co-exist. Fear is more about perceived present threat to safety while anxiety is concerned with future danger. Some signs of anxiety include: avoidant behavior, physiological arousal (rapid heart rate, sweaty hands), feelings of impending doom, intrusive and persistent thoughts, restlessness, excessive worry, insomnia – all affecting daily life.
Our anxiety counseling services aim to help you manage your anxiety symptoms and develop coping mechanisms. We focus on understanding the root causes of your anxiety to provide effective, personalized treatment.
Grieving occurs with the loss of a loved one or the loss of relationship or loss of hopes and dreams. It can be an incredibly painful and confusing experience. Grief is unlike any other emotion we experience; it waxes and wanes unexpectantly and with intensity. Our grief counseling services provide a supportive and understanding environment where you can share your experiences and feelings in a safe space. We aim to help you navigate through your grief, lament about the loss and find a path towards healing.
Marriage and Relationship Counseling
Relationships can be a source of joy but also of stress and conflict. Our marriage and relationship counseling services aim to help couples navigate through blockages of intimacy. We provide guidance and strategies to improve communication, resolve conflicts, and strengthen your relationship through restoration.
At Harmony House Counseling, our mission is to inspire hope, impart truth, and impact lives. We do this by offering therapy from a faith-based perspective guided by the fundamental values and beliefs of the Bible. We bring together the client’s faith and principles of psychology to foster healing, wholeness and overall well-being. Psalm 118:5, “Out of my distress I called to the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free.”
If you have an addiction, you are both psychologically and physiologically dependent on a particular substance (drug, alcohol, food) or activity (gambling, pornography, sex, gaming) that enslaves you. Overcoming addiction is a significant challenge that requires support and intensive therapy. Our substance abuse counseling services are designed to help you understand the root causes of your addiction and develop strategies to overcome it. We provide an encouraging and non-judgmental environment where you can work towards sustaining recovery.
Exposure to (either experiencing or witnessing) actual or threatened death, serious injury, or sexual violence, can result in a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder diagnosis.
One consideration with PTSD is that these responses may even occur years after the event(s), oftentimes leaving the person confused about their current sudden mental experiences and not linking them to past traumatic events.
PTSD can be a challenging condition to navigate alone. Our trauma-informed PTSD counseling services provide an understanding and competent environment necessary to build trust and safety to help reprocess and resolve the trauma within you.
