Are you experiencing stress? Are you having a difficult time figuring out how to handle what life has become? Are you anxious, depressed, or frustrated? We all experience challenges in our lives that can lead us to feeling nervous, "sick to our stomach," sad, angry, or alone. Some of us are feeling "stuck" or "taken over" by our emotions or our addictions. Others are having relationship challenges or difficulty communicating effectively. And yet there are others among us who are trying to cope with chronic illnesses, like fibromyalgia or diabetes, among many other conditions. Some of us may be experiencing many of the above. We are here to help you thrive and succeed again.
You are here because you want change. You are now one step closer to the person you know you are on the inside.
Life is filled with an unending variety of experiences and we are constantly challenged with developing ways to handle them. As such, we here at County Behavioral Medicine utilize various behavioral medicine therapies and techniques such as cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, mindfulness, acceptance, and existential in order to help people develop healthier ways of managing their lives. Our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth living and celebrating. While we can't change what's happened in the past, we can work together to develop better understanding and techniques to manage the challenges in your life right now. It is through the employment of these various therapeutic methods that we will discover long-standing behavior patterns or negative thought perceptions that may currently be holding you back from experiencing that more fulfilling and meaningful life you want and deserve.
If you're looking for extra support through a challenging situation or you're ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
