Life can be hard but it’s the struggle that unites us. When we are in the midst of hardship it can be difficult to reach out for help. It is this knowledge that compels me to be a source of support to my clients. It is this understanding that motivates my empathy. Science teaches us of the interconnectedness of the mind and body and the benefits of community. Therefore, a holistic approach which addresses physical, emotional, spiritual, and social wellbeing along with medication evaluation can be the most healing for mental health.
