The Center for Behavioral Health at Woods

Everyone deserves a meaningful and fulfilling life with not only their physical health needs met, but also their behavioral health needs. Because no two people are exactly alike, behavioral health services must meet each person’s specific, individual needs to be effective.

Comprehensive behavioral health draws on a wide range of therapies, interventions, and support systems to provide thorough assessment, diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and follow-up care.

Intake, psychiatric, and diagnostic assessments

We conduct comprehensive behavioral health assessments to accurately identify people’s individual mental and behavioral health needs, and to determine the best course of treatment.

Medication review and coordination

Our psychiatric nurse practitioners and psychiatrists evaluate the effectiveness of a client's current medications (prescription and over-the-counter). They review the client's lifestyle and family history to ensure all medications are being taken safely. They also recommend any needed adjustments.


Complex condition nurse navigation

A specialized service for authorized individuals in which a Complex Condition Nurse Navigator works within the collaborative of various agency supports to provide individualized and coordinated care across disciplines.

The Nurse Navigators work jointly with physicians, therapists, case managers, support coordinators, residential providers and families to integrate care, particularly those related to health, wellness, safety and increasing community participation. Utilization for each member varies depending on need, however, a typical duration of service is 6 months to a year.

Extended therapy

In extended therapy, clients receive long-term, intensive care from our mental health professionals. We provide individual, group, and family therapies, behavioral health supports, and psychiatric care.



Mindfulness emphasizes being aware and present in the current moment. With practice, people can develop and use mindfulness skills to reduce stress, manage anxiety and depression, improve concentration, cultivate resilience, and generally increase well-being.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

CBT is psychotherapy focused on identifying and changing thought patterns and behaviors that cause difficulty for clients. It can help treat a variety of mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and substance use disorders.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

DBT combines CBT with mindfulness to focus on acceptance and change. It can be effective in treating such complex mental health issues as borderline personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and substance abuse disorders.

Trauma-informed care

Trauma-informed care recognizes the impact of traumatic experiences on individuals. It involves creating and maintaining a safe, supportive environment in which the person receiving care feels understood and accepted.

Motivational interviewing (MI)

MI emphasizes empathy and collaboration between therapist and client. It was developed to help people with substance abuse issues make positive behavior changes. It can also effectively address other mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression.

Telehealth and telepsychiatry

Telehealth and telepsychiatry allow our providers to reach a wider range of clients with timely care, especially those who have difficulty accessing traditional services due to geographic location, lack of transportation, or other barriers.

Autism Assessment and Treatment

Our commitment to comprehensive behavioral health can include autism assessment and diagnosis. Accurate diagnosis opens the door to a world of interventions and treatments. As a result, clients can improve social and communication skills and reduce frustration and difficult behaviors.

Our experts assess and diagnose people from one year of age to adulthood, make treatment recommendations, and help you navigate the treatment journey.


Make an appointment to start the assessment process.

Our clinical team will meet with you to discuss the individual’s history and any emotional, social, or behavioral concerns. We will gather observational data from multiple sources to get the most accurate picture of how the individual manages and navigates a variety of settings.


Come in for observation and assessment.

One of our trained professionals meets with the individual in a sensory-friendly, low-stress environment to gauge their abilities in situations that often mimic day-to-day experiences. We use the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule – Second Edition (ADOS-2), an assessment tool widely regarded as the gold standard, suitable for people of all ages, developmental levels, and language disabilities.


We will develop individualized treatment recommendations.

After evaluation, the clinician will meet with you to thoroughly explain all the information and discuss evidence-based treatment recommendations. Our clinicians will offer follow-up visits and provide referrals as needed.

In addition to formally evaluating autism spectrum disorder, we assess the possibility of accompanying intellectual or language impairment. We use standardized measures to evaluate these nuanced skills for all individuals, regardless of age and language ability.
