“My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness”
I have always been a firm believer in the holistic nature of wellness and my interest in mental health topics stems from this. It led me to researching various areas of mental health long before I began writing on them for clients such as BetterHelp. Furthermore, as mother to a young, non-verbal child on the Autism Spectrum, I understand the importance of being able to locate reliable, well-researched information on mental health issues. I feel very personally connected to information I am able curate and share with my readers. It is my hope that through my writing I will be able to increase awareness of the diversity of mental health issues.
