Behavioral Health

Welcome to Full Circle Health’s Behavioral Health Services.

Behavioral Health Consultation, psychiatric consultation, medication management, and psychotherapy are made available to patients within our clinics as a part of our patients’ overall healthcare. The purpose of behavioral health services is to offer patients help when habits, behaviors, stress, worry, or emotional concerns are interfering with their health, happiness and well-being.

To schedule an appointment, you will need a referral from your doctor. There are typically behavioral health providers available at the time of your doctor visit. Let your doctor know if you would like to speak with someone.

Yolanda Gaona is Full Circle Health’s Behavioral Health Program Coordinator. She works closely with all of the Behavioral Health Providers. She also works closely with our patients to make sure all of their behavioral health needs are met by managing the referral processes, scheduling appointments, and verifying insurances.

Yolanda enjoys working in a teaching environment and learning right along with Full Circle Health’s resident providers.

Behavioral Health Consultation (BHC)

Medical research suggests many health conditions, such as diabetes, COPD and heart disease are caused in part by behavioral factors. These diseases can be difficult to manage. Our behavioral health consultants (BHCs) can provide tools to help reduce symptoms and help patients cope better with headaches, fibromyalgia, diabetes, asthma, COPD, hypertension, and irritable bowel syndrome. BHC’s can help develop plans for changing behaviors such as quitting smoking, losing weight, stopping or cutting down on alcohol, increasing exercise or other lifestyle changes. BHC’s can also help with emotional or behavioral problems such as family or relationship difficulties, parenting concerns, excess stress, sleep problems, loss and grief, depression, anxiety, or anger problems.

Counseling (Psychotherapy)

Full Circle Health BHCs offer individual counseling for our patients. We can treat many conditions, including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, behavioral problems in children, stress management and grief.

Visits typically last 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Psychiatry Services

Our Psychiatry providers can provide both initial evaluations as well as ongoing medication management for patients with depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, as well as other psychiatric conditions.

The first visit lasts 60-90 minutes, with follow up visits lasting 30 minutes.

Nutrition Counseling

Registered dietitians (also called registered dietitian nutritionists) offer nutrition counseling to individuals and families as part of the medical care team at Full Circle Health. Dietitians are experts in food and nutrition and can help people toward the best way to eat for diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, excess weight or low weight, food allergies and other nutrition-related conditions. Healthy eating can also help prevent chronic diseases, which is an important part of primary care. Dietitians work with families to create positive family mealtimes, learn strategies for picky eating and create plans to address weight concerns in kids. Ask your provider or nurse how to meet with a dietitian at the clinic. Learn more about our registered dietitians at
