Our expertise spans: couples therapy, sex therapy, trauma and anxiety, family therapy, mindfulness based practices, pre-marital, stress and coping, resiliency, life transitions and adjustment, divorce and coparenting, and more. 

We provide reliable resources and information through our e-books, e-courses, community presentations, podcasts, and blogging. Ready to start healing? Check out our e-resources!

We link up prospective clients with our trusted therapists. No two clients are the same, that's why we make sure the therapist-client fit is just right.

Our Story

Dr. Kendra O'Hora-harford county-therapist-couples therapy-infidelity-marriage

In September of 2016 I had a crazy thought. After working at universities and group practices in three different states I wondered if I could take my therapeutic expertise, teaching, supervision, and writing to a new level.

Could I create a therapeutic hub where resources abound and clients are well served?

I wanted the therapy resources provided at my private practice to breathe life into clients, to stem from a place of therapeutic health, and to symbolize balance, empowerment, and success. So I took a leap. In January of 2017, after months of renovations (thanks to my hubby!), I opened doors. At the end of one month I had an entire caseload of eager clients and the beginnings of a thriving business.

HarCo MFT + Wellness Center is the perfect example of a dream brought to reality.

Now, I have the joy of creating resources that extend beyond the local client. Couples all over the country can benefit from my e-books and e-course and that makes me so so happy. Whether you are a client in need, a partner looking for resources or help, or just a happy supporter following along, we are thankful for your collaboration with us - together we are creating a genuine, attuned and connected community, thank you!

Supporting clients and therapists is what matters most to me, this dream began eight years ago!... My first job out of graduate school was as a Home-based therapist for a Community Mental Health Clinic. I found myself overwhelmed and underprepared for this challenge as there was little to no guidance or support for how to best clinically serve those I was working with.

I eventually transitioned into therapeutic work at a clinic-based environment; here it occurred to me the level of support necessary to make a successful therapist was not being valued. Even as I transitioned into a group private practice, it seemed to me that we were missing the mark as far as keeping clinicians energized, prepared, and excited to do this amazing type of work. I felt convinced that I could better serve my clients and my community, with some small shifts in operations.

When Kendra and I decided to branch out into our own businesses, we created a beautiful space and quickly found solace in the comforts of conversation and collaboration, balanced work schedules, and enthusiasm for the work we do. From here, it only made sense to join forces and empower other therapists to stay motivated and excited while providing high quality therapy services. Together, at HarCo MFT & Wellness Center we have established a place where clients and therapists alike can benefit. We believe in giving our all to our community, and making the world around us more compassionate, and insightful. We are both so excited to share this vision with you!
