A Specialty Clinic for Biobehavioral Health
Mindpath Health’s Mind-Brain-Body Center treats and manages stress-related mind-body interactions that can lead to chronic physical symptoms and conditions. These include but are not limited to functional neurologic and somatic symptom disorders, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, or stress from or contributing to illnesses such as cancer, autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
We help patients experiencing
- Stress-induced functional seizures
- Unexplained dizziness
- Loss of sensation or feeling
- Chronic pain
- Chronic fatigue
- Stress factors affecting physical illnesses
These symptoms can create significant anxiety in a patient, especially if they lack a medical explanation.
The experience of stress can overwhelm our senses, making it difficult to manage our brain’s response. The Mind-Brain-Body Center’s team of clinicians teach patients skills to “turn down” the volume of their stress response. The goal is to educate patients about the mind-body connection, help reduce physical symptoms, and improve their quality of life.

What to Expect
Individuals come to the Mind-Brain-Body Center by self-referral or by another healthcare provider. They are screened by our intake coordinator and then receive an evaluation by one of our psychiatrists who gives treatment recommendations. Our program includes medication management (upon evaluation of needs) and individual and group therapy. If clients already have a medication or therapy provider, we collaborate with them.
Clients will participate in weekly skills groups consisting of education about mind-brain-body interactions, tracking triggers, and learning behavioral skills. Skills include relaxation and mindfulness techniques, meditation, cognitive reframing, and body awareness.
