Behavioral Health Therapy
The path towards mental health is multiple. Besides ketamine therapy, we also provide other professional behavioral therapy services.


Mental health care for anxiety, depression & PTSD

Behavioral therapy is a crucial component of mental health care in helping clients navigate challenges across a wide spectrum of emotional, behavioral, and cognitive challenges, including (but not limited to) PTSD, chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. It can be a very fruitful way in allowing clients to process all areas of difficulty in their lives.

If you’re searching for professional mental health care to improve your mental health and rediscover your life purpose, our experienced counselors can help you navigate through the troubled waters of anxiety, depression, and PTSD with several treatment options to suit your needs. 

Whether you simply aren’t yet ready for ketamine treatment or prefer traditional counseling only, we are here to help in every way we can.

How does behavioral therapy work?

Behavioral therapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and a therapist. Grounded in dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows patients to talk openly with someone whose objective, neutral, and nonjudgmental approach aims at making patients feel relieved, understood, and supported.

Allowing patients to deal with their mental health conditions, behavioral therapy helps build self-esteem, reduce anxiety, strengthen coping mechanisms, and improve social and community functioning.

Cognitive behavioral therapy and other services

Klarisana’s behavioral therapy services are offered through a number of different modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, strengths-based therapy, somatic therapy, trauma-focused therapy, internal family systems therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy.

Psychotherapy services can be reinforced by ketamine therapy as a supplement if the patient feels ready and wishes to do so. Both behavioral and ketamine therapy serve their respective roles, but one is not necessarily better than the other. They complete each other.

Trista Charnas
Licensed Professional Counselor

I completed my undergraduate degree at Purdue University in Health and Human Services and my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Regis.

I have experience in helping clients with relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma, abuse, and coping with grief and loss. I work with my clients through various modalities to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I am a firm believer that you are the expert in your life. I didn’t live through your experiences, you did. I see my job as being to walk alongside you and help you sort life out by pointing out themes and asking deepening questions to help guide and support you.

I specialize in helping people navigate the effects of traumatic events, reparent their inner child, and reconstruct identities from a place of self-compassion, wisdom, personal values, and conscious choices.

I provide a warm and compassionate safe space to meet you where you’re at and walk alongside you to create a wholehearted life as your favorite Self.
