"My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness"
At some point in our lives, we all face adversity. No one gets through life without losing someone or something, experiencing disappointment or loving someone who doesn’t love us back. Rather than allowing these adverse experiences to defeat and embitter us, we can use these experiences to learn and grow. This is the essence of my clinical work with people, to evolve through adversity...to become resilient.
