Mental Health Center of the Palm Beaches utilizes an array of therapy techniques to best match the needs of the client. Psychotherapy is a form of therapy that’s designed to help you regain control of your life if you’re suffering from a mental health disorder or emotional difficulty. MHC offers individual therapy for all ages, family therapy and couples therapy using effective psychotherapy approach, including:
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
This type of therapy is an action-oriented approach to psychotherapy where clients learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with their inner emotions, and, instead, accept that these deeper feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
This type of therapy is designed to put an end to negative thinking patterns and replace them with more productive thoughts that help you function better.
This is a more targeted form of psychotherapy in which your therapist works with you to help you understand how underlying issues, like unresolved grief, can have an impact on your life and your relationships.
Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
Helpful for those who suffer from emotional dysregulation or bipolar disorder, DBT works by regulating your emotions and learning new coping skills.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
is a technique for treating patients who have experienced trauma. The goal with EMDR is to introduce external stimuli (such as bilateral eye movement, tapping or pulsing light) while the patient is focusing on a traumatic event from their past. The theory behind EMDR is that by bilaterally activating the brain while focusing on past trauma, the patient is better apt to process the painful memory and heal.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
This type of therapy incorporates mindfulness practices such as mediation and breathing exercises. It can help clients break away from negative thought patterns and be able to fight off depression or anxiety before it takes hold.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
This therapy involves a set of language and sensory based interventions and behavior modification techniques intended to help improve the client’s self-awareness, confidence, communication skills, and socials actions.
This form of psychotherapy is based on the notion that early childhood experience may impact your behavior as an adult.
Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT)
This therapy addresses the specific emotional and mental health needs of children, adolescents, adult survivors, and families who are struggling to overcome the destructive effects of early trauma.

Every relationship has ups and downs, and when you and your significant other are miscommunicating, you may benefit from couples counseling. Couples therapy is a specific type of psychotherapy that helps couples improve their communication skills, learn to recognize and resolve conflicts, and build healthy, loving relationships. Couples counseling is usually short-term, following a specific treatment plan to address your relationship's needs and weaknesses. At the Mental Health Center of the Palm Beaches, we provide couples counseling services for all types of couples who want to improve their communication skills and work on their relationship together.
Family dynamics are ever-changing and oftentimes tricky waters to navigate. To ensure that your family enjoys healthy, strong relationships, family therapy goes a long way. If you find yourself in a family that’s having trouble with communication, where resentments, misunderstandings, and anger are rife, family therapy is designed to address the behaviors of each member of the family and how they effect the group as a whole. Personal behaviors are far from personal in a family setting. Family therapy sheds light on how these behaviors may be misperceived or how they may have an effect on others in the close circle. At The Mental Health Center of the Palm Beaches, we offer families a safe and compassionate place to work out their differences and move forward.
At the Mental Health Center of the Palm Beaches, we offer the same level of compassionate care through Teletherapy via a secured online platform or phone. Teletherapy offers the same high level, high confidential, compassionate therapy you would expect in a face to face, in-person session — from the comfort or convenience of your home or office setting.
