“My Philosophy on Mental Health and Wellness”
I believe that we cannot achieve overall Wellness without attending to our Mental Health. Wellness is made up of many elements: mental health (psychological and emotional wellbeing); physical health, solid relationships; and other interdependent components. Maintaining a balance between all of these things leads to overall wellness, but this is not always an easy task. Often, people need a helping hand in order to do so. As a therapist, I enjoy collaborating with others to help strengthen their mental health. By creating greater self-awareness and using introspection, we can better examine what parts of their overall wellness might be lacking and in need of adjustment.
