Great first step! Having support to assist you with life’s road blocks is essential to move forward and manage in a healthy way! Mental health is so often overlooked, but a person’s overall health is extremely dependent upon every part of a person’s mind, body, and spirit working in concert.
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist; I worked as a Social Service Director in a Skilled Nursing Facility as well as an Administrator for Assisted Living and Memory Care Facility supporting the aged population. I saw through my experience that most of the residents sought support from their primary care physician for mental health needs and received medication for mental health symptoms. That is when I found my passion, and set out to become a psychotherapist to support the mental health field.
