"My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness"
My philosophy on mental health and wellness is that it should be treated with a whole body whole mind and whole spirit approach. We are all uniquely made and no one cookie cutter method is going to work for every individual.
Each person should have their own plan for their health which includes what they are experiencing medically, spiritually and emotionally both on an internal and external level. When a person walks through my door I am treating the whole person not just on a bad day but one all of their days good and bad.
