our services during the covid-19 pandemic

Bio Behavioral Institute is committed to providing our community with the same high level of service during the pandemic. We recognize the increased psychological needs of the public during these challenging times and are continuing to offer psychological services via secure video and telephone. Our staff is available for therapy on a weekly or more intensive basis, including daily sessions if needed. 


Our tele-health services are available to our existing patients as well as new patients. Our staff can continue to provide cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure and response prevention (ERP), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), family therapy, and a variety of other psychological services and support. Our expertise and training in OCD, anxiety, health anxiety, and depression 


Bio Behavioral Institute has always provided home visits for patients who require hands on therapeutic interventions in their immediate environment. Tele-health has provided all of our patients with the added benefit of home based therapy. This has increased our capacity to directly coach our patients on difficulties within their home, such as improving organization strategies, managing day to day structure during the stay-at-home order, OCD rituals in the home, and even increased opportunities for family sessions. 


We look forward to re-opening our physical office as soon as it is safe.


Our front office staff is available to take phone calls Monday to Friday from 9:00am - 2:00pm.
