Behavior Modification

Behavior modification is a treatment approach that was created by B.F. Skinner, a psychologist who developed the operant conditioning theory- which suggests that behavior can be changed by consequences and reinforcement. Behavior modification is based on the idea that good behavior leads to positive outcomes and bad behavior leads to negative outcomes.

Individual Therapy

Behavior change is an approach to well-being by taking a careful analysis of a chain of behaviors and then introducing small changes to create an overall large long term effect with outcomes that are in alignment with an individual's values. Behavior modification is an embedded process of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) which I have been practicing since 2009.
