What is behavioral health?
Many people confuse behavioral health and mental health, but the two concepts are distinct. While mental health describes emotional and psychological well-being, behavioral health refers to the way human behavior affects overall health and vice versa. Our behavioral health providers help patients with everything from substance abuse to weight management to depression.
Oftentimes, behavioral health and mental health go hand-in-hand. Behavior affects thought processes and chemicals in the brain. Likewise, thoughts and brain chemistry affect how people behave. Xpress Wellness Urgent Care focuses on behavioral health, but addressing mental health is a key component to our treatments.

Meet with a professional counselor from the comfort of your own home
Our service options include:
Telehealth & in-office counseling
Seeking behavioral health services is already a huge step toward a healthier mind. The last thing we want to do is inconvenience you by making you take an unnecessary trip to our clinic, especially if you don’t live near one of the locations that provides these services. That’s why we offer telehealth options to anyone in Oklahoma. You can easily schedule appointments from your phone or computer.
If you prefer to seek in-office counseling, that’s okay too! We’re happy to see you in person. A lot of our patients prefer the physical presence of their behavioral health provider, and we will gladly accommodate anyone seeking treatment.
Xpress Wellness Urgent Care can provide translators in many different languages.
Do you speak Spanish? No problem. Many of our staff members speak Spanish too. If your provider doesn’t speak Spanish, we’re also happy to provide you with an interpreter. There’s no need to let a language barrier prevent you from getting the help you need. Translators are also available for other languages.
¿Eres hispanohablante? No hay problema. Muchos de los miembros de nuestro personal también hablan español. Si su proveedor no habla español, también nos complace proporcionarle un traductor. No hay necesidad de permitir que la barrera del idioma le impida obtener la ayuda que necesita.
Children, families, adults, and seniors
The importance of behavioral health has no age limit. Whether you’re worried about your child or aging relative, there’s no reason to put off or dismiss the prospect of treatment. We are happy to see patients of all ages for any situation.
Medication Assisted Therapy
Sometimes therapy alone is the ideal treatment for behavioral health issues. Other times, medication is necessary to bring relief. If you and your provider determine that medication management is right for you, we’ll coordinate with your primary care physician or psychiatrist to get you what you need.
Primary care behavioral health (PCBH) consultation model
The PCBH consultation model is a functional assessment to determine symptoms, their root causes, and how they affect a patient’s ability to function normally in their lives. We use this model to determine the best plan for eliminating or reducing symptoms and improving behavioral health.
What sets the PCBH model apart from others is that it integrates behavioral health into a primacy care setting. When you separate behavioral health from physical health systems and treatment, the results can often lead to increased costs, fragmented treatment, duplicate services, and other problems. We believe integrated care is essential for wellness as a whole.
Short term and solution focused therapy
Our providers at Xpress focus on evidence-based treatments. We know that every patient’s life situation, experiences, problems, strengths, and relationships are unique, so we carefully select the treatments and therapies that are most likely to make a positive difference. Depending on the patient and situation, these could include:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Motivational interviewing
- Acceptance and commitment therapy
- Trauma-focused/trauma-informed therapy
- Systems therapy
- Behavioral activation therapy
