Individual Counseling Harrisburg, PA

There's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. When you're struggling with stress, anxiety, or any other mental health issue, it's essential to find counseling services that fit your needs.

The help you need is available at the Neurofeedback & Counseling Center of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg. Our counseling sessions are designed to improve mental health by meeting clients where they are. Therapy requires an individual approach that takes clients' health and family situations into consideration.

Why Do People Need Individual Counseling?

Individual counseling may be necessary for a wide variety of circumstances. Counseling sessions provide clients with a safe place where they can explore the stressors that impact their emotional well-being and quality of life.

Our therapists work with clients one-on-one in a comfortable and professional space where clients are able to share their thoughts and feelings freely with the goal of improving their mental health and self-esteem.

Some of the issues that bring clients to individual counseling include:​

  • Body image and health issues

  • Career difficulties

  • Communication issues

  • Family issues

  • Relationship stressors

  • Self-esteem issues

  • Stress overload

  • Work/life balance strategies

Your therapist will work with you to determine the best-suited therapeutic approach for your individual needs. From there, your therapist will facilitate conversations to allow safe exploration of your emotional well-being.

Individual sessions are private, and HIPAA protected. Individual sessions are designed to help you cope with life’s issues on an ongoing basis, providing you with the tools and resources you need to live a healthy and productive life.

Counseling Services

At our Harrisburg office and in virtual counseling sessions, we offer a variety of counseling services because we understand that each of our clients is unique. Your individual needs should be reflected in the type of therapy you receive.

We offer an array of therapeutic methods that include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

  • Solution-focused therapy


Each of these therapies is designed to help clients based on their individual circumstances. Your individual counselor will work with you to choose the method or methods that are best suited to your personal needs and experiences.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy teaches individuals to understand harmful behavioral patterns and thinking and change them. CBT is often used for the treatment of anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and eating disorders. Clients learn to understand and recognize unhealthy behavior in themselves and others, as well as how to modify their behavior to improve their self-esteem and quality of life.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a specialized form of CBT that focuses on the social and emotional aspects of unhealthy behavior. With DBT, clients learn how to manage unstable thoughts and emotions, including thoughts of self-harm or suicide. Over time, DBT can help clients learn how to manage their emotions and understand how to differentiate between healthy and unhealthy patterns.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy teaches clients to accept their thoughts and emotions and release any shame related to them. It is often used in combination with mindfulness training. Clients learn to face their problems instead of running from them while also learning how to be kinder and more compassionate to themselves.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

EMDR therapy is most commonly used to treat clients who have experienced severe trauma. With a combination of therapist-directed eye movements, hand-tapping, and audio stimulation, therapists guide clients through their traumatic memories in a way that feels safe and enables them to relieve their distress and reformulate negative beliefs.

What Can Individual Therapy Do for You?

Our therapy sessions help clients learn coping mechanisms to help them manage stress, anxiety, and other negative emotions. The goal is to provide clients with a broad spectrum of coping skills and resources that they can use outside of therapy.

Gradually, our clients acquire a toolbox of skills they can use to move through their lives with self-acceptance, improving their relationship with themselves and with others.

At the Neurofeedback & Counseling Center of Pennsylvania, we understand that life can be overwhelming at times. We are here to help. We believe that counseling sessions provide clients with the skills they need to embrace life. Thus, leading them to higher self-esteem and a positive and constructive way to deal with the problems and issues they face in their lives.
