Our minds are a complex interrelation between our brain, other somatic systems, our social context, and much else about our environment. Improving mental health calls for a creative and adaptive approach that takes all these factors into account. Treatment works by building together a safe environment so that you can investigate the way your life experiences have led to certain ways of being in regards to yourself, relationships, and our sociocultural environment. Once you recognize these patterns, you can move forward with agency in order to live life in accordance with your desires, values, and sense of an authentic self.

I had a desire to help individuals get to the root of their problem, which was often related to their mental health but was not addressed during their treatment. It was common for me, while working as a nurse, to interact with patients who were often unaware of their mental health conditions and would seek treatment for other physical ailments, while neglecting their mental health care. This often happened as a result of the stigma associated with seeking treatment for mental health.

Ideally, clients are seeking help on their own accord, as they are tired of their issues continuing to hold them back from experiencing life at its fullest. They may be noticing that maintaining their life as they once knew it is becoming more challenging, and feel like it might be time for some assistance. They may be seeking someone to speak to, someone to prescribe medication, and likely both. They know that getting help is not always easy, but they are willing to take the first step.
