Welcome to BehavAble!

BehavAble is where the Science and Art of Behavior and Family Therapy come together.

BehavAble is where children and families come to feel better and do better… together.

We’re glad you’re here!

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 endorses 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 our therapists effectively explain our interventions so you have a solid understanding of how the treatment process works. Following APA guidelines, we collaborate with families to ensure lasting success, where maximum strength parenting helps to build a maximum strength child!

What sets BehavAble apart?

Our services are focused on the best treatment for your child and family, and we are dedicated to only using evidence-based interventions. Additionally, we 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 1,000 peer-reviewed research-based articles showing it is an impactful method.  Essentially, our clinicians will support your child with established behavior therapy methods, while teaching effective skills for managing feelings and thoughts in a healthy way. Incorporating ACT into our work with the family is how we accelerate improvements for the child’s behavioral health outcomes.

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.
