Resources for Behavioral Health

Understanding your child’s behavior and mental health can be a challenge. Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) are here to be a support and resource for you and your child, but we also understand that you want to get to know your child’s unique challenges even better and learn ways to help them manage and cope when you are away from our clinic. Dr. Nichole Swann provides a list of resources on this page that you can browse to help you gain insight and perspective to help your child. If you would like to learn more about these resources or schedule an appointment to discuss your child’s behavioral health in Glenwood Springs, Rifle and Grand Junction, Colorado, please call 970-665-4744 today!
