Integrated Behavioral Health Services

To help with common mental health concerns from ages 2- 22, we have two integrated behavioral health therapists, Rachel Haines, LPCC-S at the Mason office and Jennifer Pettit, LPCC-S at the Liberty office.

What Does a Session Look Like and How Long do They Last?

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) sessions will focus on developing and practicing healthy coping skills to manage big feelings - typically lasting 30 minutes weekly or every other week. Treatment is usually short-term, about 4-6 sessions.
