Life is a rhythm of balance and imbalance, positive and negative, stability and crisis. Life is not just one thing and as therapists, we are not immune to that rhythm.
A person can attend therapy whenever they want to work on themselves. As soon as you do not feel “like yourself” or if you have things that you would like to process are enough reasons to check in with a mental health professional. Just like going in for an annual physical check-up, it is a good idea to check-up in terms of mental health as well.
The motto for my practice is Be Love Be Well Be Whole. This short phrase captures the heart of my practice: relationships, mental health and wellness. It also brings awareness to the areas in life that influence our well-being. Awareness is a powerful tool for being able to be proactive about taking care of yourself as well as knowing when you need to focus more attention on one or more areas.
