Michigan Behavioral Consultants welcomes you. Our staff
specialists who are trained in the diagnosis and treatment for the
psychological needs of individuals who are dealing with chronic medical conditions.
Behavioral medicine deals with how thoughts and behavior impact
health and disease. Psychologists and Social Workers address
issues of stress, anxiety, depression, and other emotions which
impact your overall health. Behaviors such as over-eating,
smoking, alcohol and drug use are evaluated and treated in
coordination with your physicians, physical therapists, and other
care providers. Behavioral medicine is the science which uses
a mind-body approach to health and illness. What you think and
what you do can have a powerful impact on how you feel.
Chronic pain and other chronic diseases result in grief, anger,
stress, anxiety, and depression. Counseling to help you deal
with these problems can help change the quality of your life and get
you back in control. Group and individual therapy, family
therapy, biofeedback, and relaxation approaches help.
Motivation to change unhealthy habits and lifestyles is often
difficult. Our therapists will help you identify problem areas
and find a pathway to your goals. The problem of chronic pain isn't all in
your head...but some of the answers may be!
Each individual is interviewed and evaluated before a specific behavioral
medicine treatment plan is suggested. As this is not a treatment that
is "done to you" patients will have the opportunity to become actively involved
with this process. If requested, our staff will work closely with
primary care physicians or medical specialists in an effort to coordinate
Our mission at Michigan Behavioral Consultants is to offer hope and
relief to those suffering from any medical or psychological condition that
