A New Concept in IOP (Intensive Outpatient) and PHP (Partial Hospitalization)

Specialized Treatment for Those Who Suffer from Chronic Relapse


Unlike the broader culture, which tends to be mechanistic, we at Harmony Place Monterey believe that healthcare needs to be personal, compassionate, and each individual requires a total commitment from their clinician. We begin the process with a complete assessment, since often the symptoms of depression, anxiety or addiction, are only the tip of the iceberg. The symptom can be the result of a complexity of developmental factors from the past resulting in the difficulties of the present. Our first focus is relief of the symptom, using all the tools available, including medication and physical health assessment, psychotherapy, life-coaching, relationship and family work, lifestyle and work issues identification, and an understanding of a client’s social interactions and friends. We find that intensive-focused therapy, daily for a brief period, is more effective when an individual has suffered for a prolonged period. We work with many individuals who have tried multiple therapies for many years but have had minimal relief. When focusing on therapy for six hours a day, six days a week in a retreat-like setting, clients can resolve childhood traumas, restructure life goals, get resolution on conflictual relationships, and develop skills to recreate life passions. When a major psychiatric illness is blocking the client’s path, the most critical intervention is finding the right medications, with an optimal dosage and minimal side effects. With literally 50 or more alternatives to medicine, finding the right fit for the individual, is an art. Being in an intensive daily format allows for continual monitoring, lab testing, and the ability to change what is needed.

I have a long history with the Directors of Harmony Place Monetery. Used hypnosis, recovered memory therapy and Internal Family systems on my daughter causing her form false memories. People need to understand how risky this type of therapy is. I am aware that some people have been helped at Harmony Place, and I am happy for that, but that does not change the damage that has destroyed other people and their families too. I encourage potential clients to do an internet research on this couple if you are considered treatment with them. The information about the dozens of patients they have harmed is out there, you just have to look.
After years of dealing with sevear anxiety and depression and hours d hours of therapy,I was once again fell into a deep depression. I was referred to "Harmony Place Monterey" by my psychologist. I started my therapy couple of months ago as my last resource and hope. The Treatment that I have received from the Dr. and their team has been extraordinary. I feel alive again with lots of hope for a better life and I owe it to everybody at "Harmony Place Monterey" for the love, dedication and support I have received.
