The NBI Team

When you or someone you love is struggling with a behavioral health disorder, finding professionals that can truly help can be difficult. The Neurobehavioral Institute is staffed with a team of highly trained and compassionate clinicians that bring together years of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of psychological disorders.

We treat patients of all ages and understand that no two cases can be handled the same. Every individual and family experiences these difficulties differently, and we take the time to understand our patients and their circumstances as much as possible when determining the best course of action for treatment.
