Behavioral Health Treatments


Mental health services are modalities we provide that help support people with mental illness. We offer assessments for those who have never been diagnosed but suspect there is an issue. Once assessed we create an individualized treatment plan.

How We Help Manage Mental Health Concerns

We approach mental health issues with the patient in mind. After an assessment, we create a treatment plan that includes:

  • Individual psychotherapy
  • Group therapies
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical-behavioral therapy
  • Art therapy 
  • Speech therapy (if needed)
