Mental Health Core Mission
As behavioral health providers at 26Health, we hold these core beliefs and values in common, which unite our approach and guide our practice in serving the LGBTQ+ and Ally community in Orlando and throughout Central Florida:
We understand that many mental healthcare issues can be traced back to traumatic experiences in one’s life. People with PTSD may heal from such trauma by creating a trusting relationship and then identifying and modifying previously learned responses to past situations that are no longer serving the individual in the present.
We believe that each person has unique, intrinsic qualities and strengths that must be harnessed and reinforced in order to make progress on their journey towards greater mental and emotional well-being.
We strive to empower every individual to learn new skills, develop more balanced ways of thinking and perceiving, practice self-care and self-compassion, and build connections to community resources so that healing continues beyond the confines of the therapy session.
We believe in an individualized approach to overcoming mental health challenges that emphasize the individual’s unique values and goals for their lives.
Mental healthcare providers at 26Health trust in an environment built from mutual respect and compassion. We aim to create a safe and welcoming space for all people, while celebrating the strength, beauty, and joy that our diversity brings.
Different Kinds of Counseling
From cognitive-behavioral therapy to couples counseling, 26Health of Orlando is proud to say we offer a wide variety of therapy and mental health services in Orlando. Psychotherapy, also called talk therapy or just “therapy,” is delivered by our skilled, culturally-competent counselors. Half of our therapists are bi-lingual and bi-cultural and can provide services in Spanish. In therapy, people are encouraged to be curious and open-minded when it comes to better understanding their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
The 26Health Counseling Approach
We often take this approach with the goal of finding new perspectives and better ways to manage and cope with life’s challenges. Our counselors are trained in various therapeutic methods that are tailored to your needs, including cognitive-behavioral, solutions-focused, mindfulness-based, existential, humanistic, person-centered, motivational interviewing, crisis intervention, and expressive arts.
26Health Psychiatric Care
26Health also offers support for psychiatric care and the management of psychiatric medications. Our Orlando psychiatric provider will work with you to determine if medication is the right path and, if so, which medications will work best to address your specific needs and improve your overall quality of life. In addition to medication recommendations, many people will benefit from lifestyle medicine interventions, highlighting the important impact of sleep, nutrition, physical activity, and stress management on overall health and wellness.
Our therapy and psychiatric care services are confidential, compassionate, and accessible, regardless of individual financial situations.
There are many resources available if you, a friend, or a loved one are struggling with various addictive behaviors, including tobacco, alcohol, drugs, or food. 26Health’s Mental Health Department offers counseling, support, and referrals to help with addiction issues, especially for those in the LGBTQ+ community.
