Our Approach

Our Approach

Our dual approach to therapy and residential care embodies a comprehensive model aimed at providing holistic support to individuals seeking mental health services and residential care solutions. This approach is rooted in the belief that access to professional therapy and supportive living environments should be a right, not a privilege, for those navigating the complexities of mental health challenges or requiring residential care. Let's explore the key components of your approach:

Professional Therapy: Accessible, Affordable, and Convenient
  • Accessibility: By ensuring therapy services are widely accessible, you're removing geographical and physical barriers that often deter people from seeking help. This may include offering online therapy sessions, having multiple locations, or providing outreach services in underserved communities.

  • Affordability: Recognizing that cost is a significant obstacle for many, your approach emphasizes affordable care options. This could involve sliding scale fees, accepting various insurance plans, or offering some services at no cost.

  • Convenience: In today's fast-paced world, convenience is key to sustained engagement in therapy. Flexible scheduling, online booking systems, and virtual therapy options are examples of how you make it easier for individuals to integrate therapy into their busy lives.

Residential Care: Supportive and Empowering Communities
  • Holistic Support: Beyond just providing a place to live, your residential care facilities offer holistic support that caters to the physical, emotional, and social needs of residents. This might include on-site therapy services, wellness programs, and community-building activities.

  • Empowerment: At the core of your residential care philosophy is the goal of empowering residents. This involves creating environments that encourage independence where possible, foster personal growth, and support residents in achieving their personal goals.

  • Community Focus: Building a sense of community within your residential care facilities is crucial. This approach not only combats isolation and loneliness but also fosters an atmosphere of mutual support and understanding among residents.

Integration of Services

Your dual approach integrates professional therapy and residential care in a seamless manner, ensuring that individuals have access to a continuum of care that addresses their needs holistically. This integration might manifest in several ways:

  • Coordinated Care Teams: Professionals from both therapy and residential care sectors work closely together to create and implement personalized care plans for each individual.

  • Shared Resources and Knowledge: By leveraging the expertise and resources from both domains, you enhance the quality and effectiveness of the support provided.

  • Community Integration: Efforts to integrate residents into the broader community, coupled with community education and engagement initiatives, help to reduce stigma around mental health and residential care.

Professional Therapy: THINK. FEEL. GROW.

By embodying the motto "THINK. FEEL. GROW." in every facet of its dual approach, Best Intentions Behavioral Therapy creates a dynamic and nurturing ecosystem that encourages every individual to thrive.

  • THINK: The therapy component encourages individuals to engage deeply with their thought processes. Therapists work with clients to identify, challenge, and reframe negative thought patterns, fostering a mindset conducive to mental health and well-being.

  • FEEL: Emphasizing emotional intelligence, the therapy services provide a safe space for individuals to explore and express their emotions. This process helps clients understand their emotional responses and develop strategies for effectively managing their feelings.

  • GROW: Through therapy, individuals are supported in their journey toward personal growth and self-improvement. This aspect of the motto is reflected in the goal-oriented nature of therapy, where each client is encouraged to set and work toward personal milestones, fostering resilience and adaptive coping skills.

Residential Care: THINK. FEEL. GROW.

THINK, FEEL, GROW;  This not only reinforces the commitment to accessible, affordable, and convenient care but also elevates the mission to build a community that uplifts and empowers each individual, fostering an environment where personal transformation is not just possible but celebrated.

  • THINK: In the residential care setting, the focus on cognitive engagement helps residents maintain and enhance their cognitive functions through various activities and social interactions, promoting mental agility and overall well-being.

  • FEEL: The residential care environment is designed to nurture emotional well-being by creating a supportive community where residents can form meaningful connections, share experiences, and offer mutual support, fostering a sense of belonging and emotional security.

  • GROW: The empowerment of residents is central to the residential care philosophy. By providing opportunities for personal development, autonomy, and participation in community life, residents are encouraged to embrace growth and change, leading to a fulfilling and enriching living experience.



Our dual approach to therapy and residential care represents a forward-thinking model that acknowledges the interconnectedness of mental health, community support, and the living environment. By prioritizing accessibility, affordability, and empowerment, you're not just providing services; you're creating a movement towards a more inclusive and supportive society for individuals facing life's challenges. This holistic model ensures that every individual has the opportunity to thrive within a community that values their well-being and dignity.
