What is a GI Behavioral Health Provider?

GI Behavioral Health Providers are certified medical professionals who study the mind and behavior. Oshi Health GI Behavioral Health Providers are US-licensed and have a doctorate degree in psychology or other mental health specialities. They also complete further specialized training in how to apply these modalities to patients with GI symptoms. 

As the healthcare and GI community continue to learn more about gut health and the strong relationship between the gut and brain, there is a greater need for incorporating psychological intervention—including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness, and other therapeutic modalities—as part of the total GI care plan. You will be able to address core mental health concerns like stress and anxiety that might be contributing to heightened symptoms, as well as learn how to cope with psychological concerns that might be brought on by your GI condition.
