About Our Behavioral Health Therapists
Mental health is becoming an increasingly public topic, encouraging patients with mental, emotional, or behavioral struggles to seek help. At Babylon, we’ve employed top behavioral health therapists to ensure you get the best care. We’re dedicated to helping you improve your mental and emotional health through a variety of methods.
What Do Behavioral Health Therapists Do?
Behavioral health therapists are therapists or psychologists that work to help patients overcome or live with mental illness and behavioral or emotional problems. They help patients address and adjust behaviors and habits to live a healthier mental life. Our therapists are extremely considerate of the emotional difficulty of seeking help and will work with you to keep the process as painless as possible.
Caring for Your Mind
If you are experiencing difficulties with your mental health or suffering from addiction, a behavioral health counselor can help you manage or minimize symptoms. Our therapists offer judgement-free support for a range of issues. Whether you need minor tweaks to your lifestyle or an in-depth network of coping mechanisms, our behavioral health therapists can help.

There are several types of behavioral therapy that your therapist may recommend. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) focuses on adjusting your thoughts and behaviors into healthier patterns. Aversion therapy helps associate negative behaviors (like substance abuse) with discomfort or a negative stimulus. Dialectical behavioral therapy involves CBT in both individual and group settings. Your behavioral health therapist will help you choose the therapy that works best for you.
Behavioral health therapists can help manage extremely self-negative thoughts, but if you’re considering suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 800-273-8255. You are not alone and help is available.
