About Our Practice

Behaved Brain Wellness Center is a therapy practice that integrates holistic techniques and strategies to optimize the development and emotional well-being of our clients. Through a combination of play/talk therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy, mindfulness, and an assessment of our “Brain Health Rainbow,” our team works individually with our clients to create a personalized, goal-oriented plan so our clients can feel confident and overcome their struggles with emotional regulation.

Our team of passionate, dedicated therapists works with a variety of emotional struggles such as anxiety, depression, difficulty communicating feelings, oppositional defiance disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and attention deficit disorder (ADD).

Emotional and behavioral struggles can impact all family members in different ways. At Behaved Brain, we look to provide child and family counseling through coaching parents to implement any behavior plans, emotional supports or wellness concepts that impact the child. Parental stress can also be a major trigger, especially in the current environment. We aim to provide the best counseling for kids, but we are also passionate about providing parents therapy and coaching.

When you work with Behaved Brain, you will be assigned a therapist that is the right fit for you at your consultation call. All of our therapists are supportive, passionate and kind. Each 45-minute session will focus on setting goals and treatment plans that were discussed as a team, to make sure we are working together to optimize treatment success. We utilize a number of visual systems, behavior tracking tools, and emotion support to help carry over what is discussed in each session.
