“My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness”

Mental health should be tended to with regularity. One cannot merely treat the physical form and neglect the mental and spiritual aspects of humanity. Too many individuals suffer in silence or try to go it alone. There is no shame in seeking support until you can independently manage your mood. I see my role as that of partner, rather than guide. I do not presume to be all-knowing. I am equipped with a knowledge base and can draw from personal experience which I use to educate and empower others to achieve optimum outcomes.
