About

What services does your practice offer?

In addition to therapy, medication management, and psychological testing, RICBT also offers TMS Services and a wide array of group workshops.

TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) is an innovative treatment modality that is approved by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment for depression. TMS is typically used when other depression treatments (eg. antidepressant medications and psychotherapy) have not been effective. Dr. Paul Bowary, Director of TMS Services, offers evaluations to confirm if TMS therapy is an appropriate treatment for you. He will introduce you to our NeuroStar TMS device, explain the process, and answer any questions you may have.

Therapy groups and workshops complement skills learned in individual therapy and offer a blend of support and strategy-building. Group offerings change frequently, and typically include: ADD/ADHD skills, DBT skills, CPT for Trauma, Designing Your Life (iLife), Teen (High School) support, Young Adult (College) support, and Weight Loss & Wellness.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a therapeutic approach focused on recognizing, analyzing, and changing thoughts and behaviors through a structured approach that teaches new skills.

CBT is a good fit for individuals who are looking for a shorter term approach, focused on current problems and practical solutions. Therapists may give assignments to work on outside of session, in order to help overcome specific habits or thought patterns.

What makes RICBT unique?

The entire team is determined to make RICBT a uniquely positive and understanding community. Clinicians accept members from diverse communities and work hard to collaboratively explore cultural and individual differences. Administrative staff go the extra mile to be welcoming and helpful.

RICBT's mission is to offer you incredible support and proven strategies to help you feel better and live better.

When you schedule a call with an RICBT Intake Coordinator, they will get a feel for the issues you are hoping to address, and make some recommendations for which clinicians or programs might be good first steps. They can also help you to understand the cost of being seen at RICBT and whether your health insurance will help. They will also serve as your ongoing practice representative, to ensure you benefit the most from your therapeutic experience at RICBT.

Dedication to clients extends outside of the office with the RICBT patient portal, which allows you to check your appointments, update your demographic or insurance information, and complete questionnaires to check your progress.
