"My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness"

I believe in reducing the stigma associated with seeking out mental health services.  Taking an eclectic approach to assisting each unique individual or population, will assist with the reduction of barriers to mental health services, allowing to meet the unique needs to help improve the persons’ overall health and wellness.
