Why I am interested in treating individuals with depression:

We have all experienced difficult times in our lives. Depression is something that affects all people from all walks of life. It is something that can sneak up on you. I believe that helping people get through those difficult times by skill building will improve their quality of life. For me, it’s not just about seeing the person it is helping them make a lifelong and meaningful change in their life.

My Personal tidbit:

Awareness is the first step to change. Change occurs when people are provided the opportunity to carefully observe their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors through awareness building strategies.
