BRIGHT HARBOR HEALTHCARE

Our Outpatient
Program

Numerous things may cause stress or a disruption in a person’s life and routines. Without seeking help, their situation may become worse. Bright Harbor Healthcare’s outpatient mental health services are designed to address situations such as:

Interpersonal
relationship issues

Excessive worry
or anxiety

The loss of
a loved one

Divorce or
separation

Financial difficulties
or unemployment

Depression

Child or adolescent behavioral
or discipline issues

Recent discharge from an inpatient behavioral health facility

Anger management
issues

And many
other reasons

Traditional therapy and counseling often include talking through issues and looking at root causes of the difficulties people face. At Bright Harbor Healthcare, our therapists and staff offer Solution Focused Brief Therapy as an alternative to traditional therapy. This type of therapy focuses on identifying solutions. With Solution Focused Brief Therapy, therapists show people that they can learn new skills which can be used now and in the future to better cope with, and move beyond, the problems they face in their lives. Ideally, treatment should last about 8-12 sessions, and when completed, people will KNOW what they learned in the course of treatment.

We provide outpatient mental health services in Bayville, Manahawkin, Brick, and Toms River offering affordable, comprehensive, and easily accessible behavioral health care. These are available for individuals of all ages 

Our highly trained and experienced staff provides services in a comfortable, friendly setting. We remain respectful of each person’s individuality, cultural background and religious affiliation.

Our clinicians work with you to develop treatment goals.Their continued support and guidance help you to achieve those goals and improve your outlook. Our goal is to create a partnership, where each individual receives the support they need to overcome life’s obstacles and achieve lasting success.
