Located in Central Kentucky and established in 2013, Harmony Farm Creative Counseling was designed as a place for children and their families to receive mental health outpatient counseling in a relaxing, home-like environment. Located on 15 acres, we incorporate various modalities of therapies, both traditional and experiential. We are pleased to announce our new low-ropes challenge course for adventure therapy. We also utilize animals in sessions as well.  We have a heart for children that have experienced trauma and also enjoy Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. We are excited for the opportunity to visit a location where experiential philosophies and methods are central to their operations.
