Your Trusted Resource for Behavioral Health

Our providers believe that physical health is affected by a patient's emotional and behavioural health, both aspects must be treated for a positive outcome. Our experienced medical staff at Central Ozarks Medical Center practice cooperative health care and are able to offer tools and programs such as assessments, private consultations, family counseling and when needed; referrals to other specialized resources. In this blog, we will discuss the benefits of family counseling, private counseling, and our behavioral health providers at the Lake of the Ozarks.





Family Counseling


If a family has experienced a stressful event that has put a strain on their relationships with one another, they could possibly benefit from therapy. Family counseling aims to promote understanding among family members in order to solve the problems of one or more individuals.


Private Counseling


Depending on what behavioral health issue you may have, one of our provider may suggest private consultations. Behavioral therapy can change how we act. Don't avoid situations and other people because you don't feel comfortable or confident. Behavioral therapy can provide that step you need to feel more comfortable in situations that may cause you anxiety.


Our Behavioral Health Providers


Our behavioral health providers are Michael Stone, PsyD, Elizabeth Ewers Teel, Ph. D., and Danette Harrington, LCSW.

Prior to joining Central Ozarks Medical Center, all of our behavioral health providers had experience in their perspective fields and have always shown great passion for what they do.



Dr. Stone operated a private psychological practice in the Osage Beach, and Jefferson City areas. His specialty areas of practice are psychotherapy with adults and older adult populations as well as psychological testing and assessments.



Dr. Teel worked for the State Department of Mental Health, Comprehensive Psychological Services Division for 18 years; the last 6 as the Chief of Children’s Community Operations for the Central Region (31 Counties).
