Advanced Behavioral Medicine arose from the union of a traditional psychodynamic psychotherapy with basic neuroscience, medical diagnosis, marital and family therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapies. Our director, Dr. Matossian, also takes special interest in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Bipolar Disorder.
We value effective and efficient treatments, while avoiding the trap of using this as an excuse for poor quality care. We believe great care is provided when great care is taken, from the first phone contact to checking on people after their case has been closed. We will put the time in up front to try and understand fully the problems in your life, so we may provide exactly the type and amount of help you want and need.
Our clinical staff is a highly select and experienced group of doctoral and master’s level psychiatrists, psychologists, and psychotherapists. Whether your solution will require cognitive therapy, family systems therapy, trauma recovery, mindfulness training, exposure and response prevention therapy, relaxation training, EMDR, or traditional psychodynamic therapy for childhood trauma, we have the expertise to select the right treatment and make it work for you.
Recommendations for medication are based upon careful consideration of individual objectives, genetics, temperament, and physical functioning. If indicated, medication management is provided by a Board Certified Psychiatrist with exceptional knowledge and experience. Our psychiatrists are brain science experts, but also psychotherapists who will supply only the amount and type of medicines that are necessary and justified.
A new and exciting treatment for resistant depression, transcranial magnetic stimulation, came to our clinic in 2019. By gently stimulating the growth of connections in the brain, TMS has safely restored healthy function and optimism to many people who were not reached by medication and psychotherapy. Based on solid science, TMS opens an entirely new dimension in our thinking and approach to chronic major depression and many other functional brain disorders.
Advanced Behavioral Medicine Inc. is dedicated to creating, restoring and maintaining the highest possible emotional well being, productivity, and fulfillment to the individuals, families and communities it serves. We believe that with skill, integrity, and persistence we can help our clients achieve a more effective life adjustment and a greater degree of health, defined by paths consistent with their values and preferences.
We will provide all comers with state-of-the-art outpatient mental health services to any individual or family, regardless of race, creed, sex, age, sexual orientation, infirmity, or political affiliation. Our purpose is to support social, psychological, and interpersonal functioning in individuals and families affected by one or more psychiatric medical conditions other than, or in addition to, any substance abuse problem.
We will aim to serve as bridge between the patient’s support resources, including primary care physician, school, place of employment, managed care agency, and especially of his or her family, and to that end, include other family members, when appropriate, as adjuncts to the primary care delivered to an individual patient.
We will continually improve our skills, methods, and processes of service delivery, oversight, and administrative support to ensure relentless progress towards ideal service excellence.
