Clinix Healing Center is now fully integrated. This means in addition to paying attention to your physical health we also address your emotional health, habits, behaviors, and how those things interact with each other. This is accomplished by working as a Team with your Medical provider and our Behavioral Health Consultant.

If you are looking for a long-term therapist make an appointment with our Behavioral Health Consultant and she will assist in individualizing who to connect you with by what you are seeking from therapy by issues, insurance, location, etc.

What is Behavioral Health?

Going to see a counselor never means there is something wrong with you. People need to keep this in mind when considering counseling. There are times when you need to talk to someone who has a neutral viewpoint and who is not closely related to the situation. This type of professional relationship will be healthy and beneficial for your growth and healing. 

What are the benefits of Behavioral Health?

  • Gain better understanding of your condition or situation
  • Identify and change behaviors or thoughts that negatively affect your life
  • Explore relationships and experiences
  • Find better ways to cope and solve problems
  • Learn to set realistic goals for your life
  • Feel better about yourself

You will benefit from Behavioral Health Counseling when:

  • If you have been having more than just a few hard days emotionally.
  • If hard days or bad moods are lasting more than they normally should and it is starting to affect your daily life.
  • If feelings or moods keep you from spending time with people, doing work, or staying physically active on a daily basis.
  • You're having a hard time overcoming negative moods and self-destructive behavior
  • You've tried other treatments and they haven't worked
  • Other treatments aren't appropriate for your situation — for instance, you can't tolerate the side effects from antidepressants
  • You want to experience emotional growth and healing

  • Depression
