If a client for instance, has depression and anxiety, we will discuss how it affects their life. Talk about what triggers make it worse, and how they handle the symptoms. For compliance, we collaborate on the best plan of care. I present the options for medications, benefits, alternatives, side effects, and encourage therapy as a great combination with the medication. The ultimate goal is to return the client to be healthy, happy and enjoy life again.

Balancing physical, mental, and emotional health is easier said than done. It is very important that we take accountability for the things that we can change and make the time to change them. Often, we're consumed with everything around us that sometimes we get lost in the mix; and it can be very difficult to re-center our purpose. It takes great endurance, confidence, will power and most of all faith to ask for help when we need it the most.
