Behavioral Health Therapy

What We Do in Behavioral Health Therapy

In order for a child who is neurodiverse to function at their fullest potential they must be able to go beyond the basics at home, school and in the community. Parents and siblings and other caregivers must be mentally and emotionally healthy enough to take on highly interactive roles in creating systems that promote learning and growth. Sometimes even the strongest families need a little extra support.

Behavioral Health Therapy works with families, couples, and individuals to better navigate mental, social, and emotional issues related to neurodiversity. It seeks to help clients use their own strengths to overcome difficulties with anxiety, depression, relationships, and trauma. The ultimate goal of Behavioral Health Therapy is to celebrate the client’s strengths and leverage them to find solutions that create change. 

We are experienced in working with the following:

      • Behavioral issues at home school in other settings
      • Couples therapy
      • Trauma
      • Anxiety
      • Depression
      • Adjustments related to medical or mental health diagnosis in self or family members
      • Parenting 
      • ADHD
