Behavioral Health and Wellness Services

Behavioral Health is the relationship between our behavior and our overall well-being.

Untreated, symptoms can impact every area of life, making day to day functioning difficult and holding back you or someone you care about from living a full and healthy life.

Our Behavioral Health care team of trained, experienced professional psychotherapists includes clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, and drug and alcohol counselors. As a Smilow Life Center patient, you’ll work with your therapist to make a customized care plan to reach your goals.
