CFM Behavioral Health Provider in Bend, Oregon
At Caldera Family Medicine, we believe total wellness is physical and mental. With our approach to comprehensive, personalized care, we have a behavioral health provider at the clinic who works with patients to address current conditions and offer ongoing counseling. To further our mission of total care, our providers work closely with each other to help patients achieve their best health.
Our behavioral health services include:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
- Client-Centered Therapy
- Psychodynamic Therapy
- Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
- Trauma-Focused Therapy
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapeutic approach that helps patients address and heal from traumatic events in the past. During treatment, our behavioral health provider will walk patients through past events to process them using bilateral stimulation, dual awareness, and cognitive restructuring.
Marriage and Family Counseling
In addition to the listed behavioral health services, we are proud to offer marriage and family counseling. This service is intended to help improve relationships and dynamics within couples and families by resolving conflict, improving communication, and strengthening bonds.
Our clinic offers same-day and scheduled visits with our behavioral health consultants. Our staff and providers can provide additional information about these services during routine visits.
