IBB pairs you with a clinician to work on behavioral health issues and that can be addressed in several sessions. Clinicians are social workers, counselors, or psychologists who have training in diagnosis, problem solving, mood disorders, LGBTQ+ issues, trauma-informed care, and other behavioral issues. Some of our clinicians are independently licensed providers and some are graduate level interns.
