Favorite health tip: Maintain a healthy lifestyle, pursue activities that are rejuvenating and provide meaning to you. Strive for excellence and learn from life’s struggles and challenges. Keep a sence of humor and stay connected with loved ones and supportive people in your life.
Practice philosophy: We live in a complex world, often dealing with significant change and sometimes experiencing difficulties coping. Distress can be experienced in many ways and often treatment is provided in unique ways for each patient. With all treatment strategies there’s healing, that incorporates a variety of techniques utilized by psychologists.
