What's in a Name?


Chosen to represent the three foundational concepts of therapy at Three Oaks Behavioral Health & Wellness- ACCEPTANCE of what is, what was, and what will be; BALANCE of who we are now with who we want to be; and CHANGE what we are willing & able to do in order to move in our own lives.


Represents Raleigh, North Carolina (home to Three Oaks, and the City of Oaks!) as well as the deep symbolism of strength, growth, persistence, and wisdom associated with the majestic oak tree. These are elements that we all have within us.

"Behavioral Health"

Much of the orientation of Three Oaks centers on concepts of non-judgment and evaluating behaviors as either helpful or unhelpful based on your expressed goals & needs. By targeting behaviors as manifestations of thoughts and feelings, we can experience significant change and relief in our lives almost immediately.


Chosen to represent the encompassing nature of therapy. Wellness is not about one single element. It is about ALL of our elements: mental, physical, spiritual, emotional. Mind, body, in relationship & in isolation. We are made up of many parts.

At Three Oaks Behavioral Health & Wellness, ALL PARTS OF YOU ARE WELCOME. Life circumstance, opportunity, experience, early relationships. All of these often play into which parts of you get the most attention and which parts lie dormant, waiting to be rediscovered.

Balance is recognizing and collecting all of our parts, seeing them, honoring their purpose in our lives, and utilizing each of them to achieve the fullness of our whole selves.

Three Oaks Behavioral Health & Wellness encourages a multifaceted approach to treatment, calling on traditional and non-traditional treatment options to support the efforts and needs of each individual.

We feel honored to support and collaborate with you.
