Behavioral Health/Counseling Services

The Outpatient Behavioral Health Therapy program focuses on providing counseling services to individuals, couples and families, including children, teens, and adults. Those dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, family conflict, medical illness, and behavioral difficulties will benefit from the program, as well as those with a more severe mental health diagnosis.  A variety of interventions and coping skills will be provided, based upon individual treatment planning and agreed upon by the patient and the healthcare team.

Becky August, LCSW, is also part of the therapy team and she also provides counseling services through Horizon Healthcare.  Becky comes to Horizon healthcare with a wealth of knowlege and experience.  She has worked in the school systems for many years and we are blessed to have her now providing services to our patients.
“I am pleased to join the excellent care team at Horizon Healthcare, and to have the opportunity to fill a very important need for quality mental healthcare in our community.  With today’s fast paced lifestyle, we all face a wide variety of difficult changes.  The pressures of daily living frequently leave us feeling overwhelmed, and often lead to stress, depression, relationship and behavioral issues.  My goal is to provide a comfortable environment where our patients can feel accepted and understood, while learning to manage these difficulties in a positive, healthy manner.  I’m very excited about my role in educating our entire community that counseling is a well proven way to help us better enjoy our lives and the relationships we have with others,” stated Jill Barnfield, LCSW, Clinical Therapist at Horizon Healthcare.
