Behaviorist joins clinic team
Adrian Egger will begin to see patients in The Corvallis Clinic Integrated Behavioral Health Department this month.
As an integrated behaviorist, Egger collaborates with the clinic’s family medicine providers in Philomath to help patients with behavioral health issues that are affecting their overall health. He takes a collaborative approach to behavioral health, working with the patient in integrating aspects of solution-focused behavioral therapies with humanistic frameworks. Egger works to create a safe, nonjudgmental environment and believes positive change can be deeply influenced by the patient-behaviorist relationship.
Egger comes to the clinic from Providence Medical Group in Hillsboro, where he practiced as an integrated behavior specialist.
