About BehavAble

Caring parents want the best for their child, and our expert clinicians at BehavAble provide best practices to promote healthy growth for kids and valuable support for families.

Your concerns about your child’s struggles become our concerns too, and we will treat your child with compassionate, evidence-based interventions to assist with their development and behavioral wellness.

Choosing the right help for your child:

BehavAble professionals use only the most effective interventions to work with you and your child. The American Psychological Association promotes a website called Effective Child Therapy, which offers advice to parents and guardians on how to select a mental health professional for children.  We meet and exceed all of the suggested standards from the APA for treating kids who are having a difficult time. All of our therapists are licensed, our treatments are research-based, and effectively explain our interventions so you have a solid understanding of how treatment will progress. Many of the APA guidelines for helping children includes collaborating with the family to ensure maximum strength parenting and longer lasting success.


What sets BehavAble apart?

Our services will always be focused on the best treatment for your child, and we are dedicated to only using evidence-based interventions. We additionally support all of our services with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).  ACT is a compassionate approach for teaching effective, age-appropriate mindfulness skills, and has over 1000 research articles showing it is an impactful method.  Essentially, our clinicians will support your child’s health with established behavior therapy methods, while teaching them effective skills for dealing with feelings and thoughts that are bothering them. Incorporating ACT into our work with the family is how we accelerate improvements for the child’s behavioral health outcomes.

In addition, BehavAble is provides cutting-edge telehealth services to work with your child and your family. BehavAble was co-founded by Dr. DJ Moran who was certified in telepsychology in 2017 – several years before telehealth services became popularized by the pandemic. During March & April 2020, Dr. Moran taught thousands of practitioners how to pivot into this realm of practice, and helped dozens of clinics continue to provide their crucial mental health services at this time of need. BehavAble’s services are well-founded in telepsychology’s best practices.  Additionally, Dr. Moran has been practicing Acceptance and Commitment Therapy since 1994, was the president of the worldwide ACT organization, and is the author of many ACT publications.  He’s a licensed certified school psychologist, Board Certified Behavior Analyst, and licensed clinical psychologist with experience working with behavioral health with children for over three decades.

In brief, BehavAble is at the forefront of treating childhood behavior concerns with ACT, evidence-based interventions, and telepsychology, plus we help with you and your child with compassion, science, and professionalism.
