Philosophy of Care

Someone was quoted saying: “Life is full of pain & suffering. Being miserable is an option. We all have choices.” Seeking mental health counseling from a Behavioral Health Consultant (ie, clinical psychologist or licensed social worker) is a choice to redefine misery & learn ways to live healthier. Here’s to better choices for our physical & mental health!
