After many years as colleagues in New York, Drs. Katia Moritz and Jonathan Hoffman came together in 2000 to co-found the Neurobehavioral Institute (NBI). They united in a vision to develop a team of practitioner-scientists who did not just share office space and expenses, but truly collaborate. Today, this dream has been realized in the many specialized and intensive services NBI offers and a real clinical team that is the “engine” for translating theories and clinical strategies into reality.
One of NBI’s primary goals is to address the needs of patients who lacked services where they live, as well as those with severe and complex symptoms or challenging co-occurring conditions. Our intensive treatment programs for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Anxiety and Obsessive-Compulsive Related Disorders, as well as for many other psychological conditions, are well-recognized. NBI offers specialized psychological assessment and treatment services for children, adolescents, and adults.
Understanding the unique cultural backgrounds of each person is also part of “the NBI way.” In this spirit, Spanish and Portuguese speaking patients can receive treatment in their native language. In addition to our work with individuals and families coming from all over the US, NBI clinicians provide services for many international patients, either at our center or through workshops or consultations in their own countries. We have consulted with patients or family members from South America, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
NBI staff members contribute to the field of psychology by publishing articles and books; serving on scientific and clinical advisory boards; speaking at local, national, and international conferences; and by volunteering their services to psychology-related organizations. NBI supports the future of Clinical Psychology through an APPIC accredited postdoctoral training program. NBI staff members receive continuous opportunities for professional development, including out-of-state travel for specialized training.
NBI’s mission is to bring the highest quality of evidence-supported psychological care to each and every patient to make a significant and lasting difference in their lives.
Our motto and greatest aspiration is “Life Change at its Core.”
