Treatment Specialties

Anxiety Disorder

Chronic anxiety typically involves unnecessarily high levels of anxiety in certain situations or regarding certain things, irritability, difficulty relaxing, muscle tension, as well as a persistent sense of impending doom and increased likelihood of experiencing panic attacks.

Depression

Clinical depression is marked by a chronic sense of numbness, sorrow and sadness, low self-esteem, excessive guilt, as well as physical symptoms like exhaustion, headaches, and muscle pain.

Bipolar Disorder

This is a mental health disorder where a person swings from heavy low points of depression to elevated periods of mania—this back-and-forth is typically gradual, with periods of normalcy and balance in between.

Trauma

Trauma can be physical, mental, or both. In many cases, it can result in mental and behavioral health issues. Those who have suffered from serious trauma often battle anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other issues that can make their lives seem manageable.

Suicidal Ideation

Suicidal ideation involves wanting to take one’s own life or thinking about suicide. These thoughts can be accompanied by conscious planning of one’s suicide as well as varying levels of intent and a consideration of different methods.

Self-Harming Behaviors

Self-harming behaviors include cutting, scratching, burning, and misusing medicine. Self-harming should not be confused with suicide attempts as they are more often coping mechanisms for stress, self-esteem issues, feeling numb, and other challenges one might be going through.

Anger & Other Emotional Regulation

Anger is a powerful emotion and is very destructive if it is not regulated correctly. There is nothing wrong with anger as such, but appropriately managing one’s anger is a key factor in behavioral health.

Separation & Divorce

These are life-changing events for many people. The process of separating from someone and starting a new life on their own can be an overwhelming and painful experience for which they require support.

Adolescent Behavioral Problems

Adolescents act out for many reasons. This is normal. However, when actions become too severe—such as stealing, vandalism, arson, or severe impulsivity—managing and resolving adolescent behavior problems becomes far more necessary.

Substance Misuse

Those with substance misuse disorders feel a compulsive need to use drugs or alcohol, even at the expense of their mental and behavioral health, finances, and relationships.

Grief & Loss

Whether it’s the death of a loved one or emotional pain caused by unwanted changes or events in one’s life, grief can have intense and powerful effects for which different forms of support may be necessary.

Self-Esteem

A low sense of self-esteem is typically associated with mental, physical, and behavioral health issues like anxiety, depression, and anorexia. Substance misuse is also common in those who suffer from low self-esteem.

Relational Difficulties

Relational difficulties are often complex. Problems in relationships typically involve sensitive issues and a lot of emotion—they may require help from an objective health professional to find root problems and offer solutions.

Behavioral Health Vs Mental Health

Mental health and behavioral health are often used interchangeably, and for good reason—mental health and behavioral health are linked, but mental health pertains entirely to one’s psychological state, whereas behavioral health refers to a person’s state of mind and their physical condition as well.

We offer treatment for both.

Why An Individualized Treatment Plan Is So Important For Mental & Behavioral Health

There are so many factors that go into mental and behavioral health problems that it would be impossible to construct a universal plan of treatment.

One may be suffering with one or many problems, at a certain level of severity, caused and aggravated by a number of different genetic and environmental factors.

At our behavioral health centers, we formulate treatment plans catered to you in order to provide you with the best possible care.

Mental and behavioral health disorders typically come in pairs.

The most common and obvious example would be depression as comorbid with anxiety. 

Anxiety disorders themselves can be categorized as social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder—those who suffer from chronic anxiety typically deal with 2 or more of these issues.

Other examples of common comorbidities would be OCD and ADHD, borderline personality disorder and depression, etc.

In short, mental and behavioral health disorders are complex, they feed into each other, and the instances of someone suffering two or more of them is one of the main reasons we offer individualized treatment plans at our behavioral health centers.

Mental and behavioral health disorders span generations and lifestyles, and treatment options should be catered to individuals accordingly.

Treatment options for children and teens are obviously going to be different than those used for people in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and beyond.

Treatment plans may require positive changes in lifestyle as well. For example, when dealing with substance misuse disorder, it may be necessary to cut ties with certain individuals or avoid certain events.

At our behavioral health centers, we take age and lifestyle into consideration when helping determine a treatment plan that will be most beneficial.

Just as each behavioral health treatment plan is unique to each individual, so is the course, direction, and progress of treatment. 

It can take time to find the right therapy schedule, lifestyle improvements, and possible medications (including combinations and dosage) for someone, depending on their condition. 

As treatment progresses, alterations in treatment may be necessary. These changes may be more gradual for some than for others. Again, it all depends on the individual.

As we learn more about what works best for you, you learn more about what works best for yourself as well—and that’s what makes all the difference. 

At our behavioral health centers, our health professional therapists have the skills, experience, and patience to help you understand your own needs and motivations better and help you realize how treatment is helping.

Mental & Behavioral Health In Children

Behavioral health disorders in children can be more difficult to detect, but some signs to watch out for include:

  • Getting nervous, annoyed, or angry too easily and too intensely.
  • Often appearing nervous, annoyed, angry, or upset.
  • A refusal or inability to follow rules or listen to adults, parents, or instructors.
  • Excessive arguing.
  • Regularly throwing temper tantrums.
  • Overall difficulty or inability to handle frustration.

There are also physical symptoms that typically manifest in these circumstances, including headaches and excessive body shaking, that we’ve seen at our behavioral health centers. 

There are many factors—ranging from genetic to environmental—that contribute to a child developing a mental or behavioral health disorder that we’ve seen at our behavioral health centers. 

  • Gender—Behavioral health disorders are more common in boys than in girls. This may be the result of genes, socialisation, or both.
  • Family life—Problems or dysfunctions in families are big contributors to a child’s risk of developing mental or behavioral health problems.
  • Gestation & birth—Pregnancies often don’t go smoothly, and problems like premature birth, extensive time in labor, or low birth weight can all be contributing factors.
  • Intellectual disabilities—Behavioral problems are far more common in children with intellectual disabilities.
  • Help your child recognize what they are feeling and find ways to put it into words. Putting a definition on what your child is feeling when they are overwhelmed with emotion can give them a better sense of control. It’s also important to help them differentiate between their feelings and their actions—for your child’s mental and behavioral health, they need to know that while some of their actions can be bad, their feelings are never bad, and one thing that makes it difficult for children to open up and talk about their feelings is the association they’ve made between bad behavior and the emotions that gave rise to it.
  • Be as empathetic as possible. Listen to your child and validate their feelings before offering advice. This helps build trust and opens their minds to your own advice, as children, like adults, are more likely to compromise if they feel their side has been considered and validated.
  • Help your child find a creative outlet. A big part of behavioral health is finding appropriate outlets for your emotions. As adults, it’s our job to teach children about their emotions and how they relate to the world around them. One way of doing this is by finding a creative outlet for their emotions that they really enjoy, be it games, art, writing, sports, music, or any other healthy form of emotional release.

At our behavioral health centers, we offer both one-on-one counseling for children as well as family counseling. We can help give you and your child a better understanding of what they are going through and how best to help them.

With a combination of psychological testing, assessments, and diagnostic services, we can develop a behavioral health plan catered to meet your child’s needs specifically. With on-going therapy and regular reviews, we can help you and your child find peace and a healthy state of mind.
