The Rochester Center for Behavioral Medicine is dedicated to improve the quality of life experience for our clients. We combine the treatment modalities of cognitive-behavioral & supportive psychotherapies with medication to help people lead happier, more productive lives.
RCBM offers a comprehensive program of individual, group and conjoint therapies across all areas of psychiatry and psychology. RCBM is strongly committed to a “biopsychosocial” approach to mental health conditions. We try to understand the biological basis of an individual’s affliction, the psychological conflicts that might arise from it or give rise to it, and the sociological or community context of one’s life. Our staff is composed of individuals with strengths in these areas.
Educating our patients about innovative treatment options and cutting edge research on mental health conditions is vital to our treatment approach. We join our patients in a collaborative effort so that they make informed educated choices for themselves. We attempt to educate through dialogue, referral to patient advocacy groups, and distribution of educational material and videos.
RCBM offers services to children, adolescents, adults and seniors coping with anxiety, depression, ADHD, learning disabilities, work related issues, stress and family and marital issues among other conditions.
