"My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness"
Mental health is an integral component of overall well-being. Developing a lifestyle that includes proactive measures to promote overall wellness is key to balance. There continues to be stigma globally surrounding mental health issues. It is important that there is information available to better inform our practices as clinicians and advocates. Providing the highest level of care within an ethical framework is paramount to helping our clients succeed while maintaining our self-care. Certainly, a holistic approach to wellness involves the mind and body.
