Service Q&A

What is behavioral health care?

Behavioral health care at WellBean Health includes psychotherapy, holistic treatments, and medication management that restore your mental health if you struggle with depression, anxiety, or other common conditions. 

Ryan is highly skilled, with many years of experience in behavioral health disorders. He offers in-person and telemedicine options for added convenience. 

What are examples of behavioral health disorders?

Behavioral health disorders Ryan commonly treats at WellBean Health include:

  • Eating disorders
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Addictions
  • Substance use disorder

Behavioral health disorders involve patterns of destructive or disruptive behaviors that last for several months, sometimes longer. They can lead to problems holding down a good job, establishing strong interpersonal relationships, or being successful at school.

What are the risk factors for behavioral health disorders?

The causes and risk factors for developing behavioral health disorders include:

  • Family history of behavioral health problems
  • Learned behaviors
  • Misusing drugs or alcohol
  • Past trauma
  • Physical, emotional, or sexual abuse
  • Social isolation
  • Neglect
  • Drug or alcohol use during pregnancy
  • Environmental toxin exposure

However, the cause of behavioral health challenges isn’t always clear and anyone can develop them.

Do I have a behavioral health disorder?

Ryan meets with you virtually from the comfort of your home or office. He gets to know you by reviewing your symptoms, medical history, medications, and more.

During a psychiatric evaluation, he asks about your mood, emotions, thoughts, and behavior patterns, as well as your lifestyle and treatment preferences. Ryan then tailors a mental health treatment that’s best suited for you.

How are behavioral health disorders treated?

WellBean Health offers an array of patient-centered treatments, including:

  • Psychotherapy (talk therapy)
  • Testing for nutrient deficiencies
  • Medication management
  • Lifestyle change counseling
  • Other holistic treatment options

Ryan provides cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and other forms of highly effective psychotherapy that help you alter problematic thought and behavior patterns.

He may suggest you make changes to your diet, exercise, or sleep habits. Ryan might recommend you take dietary supplements, try stress-reduction techniques, or take steps to enhance your organizational or interpersonal skills.
