Starting Behavioral therapy

What is Behavioral therapy?

Behavioral therapy from therapists at Thriveworks in Blacksburg, VA refers to all forms of therapy that treat mental health conditions and describes a wide range of techniques. It's rooted in behaviorism, which says that we learn from our environment.

How does Behavioral therapy work?

Behavioral therapy is action-based and works by reinforcing wanted behaviors and removing unwanted behaviors. The current behavior is the problem and the solution is to replace it with new behaviors that minimize or remove said problem.

Is Behavioral therapy conducted in person or online?

Behavioral therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Behavioral therapy last?
