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.
