Words of Encouragement

Words of Encouragement

Not very long ago mental health took a turn towards a more medicalized treatment approach involving psychopharmacology.   As a licensed mental health counselor, I align with professionals who treat mental health from a wellness perspective. I do not rely on psychopharmacology as the first measure initiated.  It is my opinion that most mental health disorders arise from an unbalanced lifestyle.

While I believe there is a place for medication in mental health treatment, I also believe it is over utilized. I also think self-care often is sacrificed to meet the busyness of life resulting in poorer physical health, compromised mental health and depleted emotional and spiritual states.  While our society may press for greater productivity with fewer resources, it comes at great cost – our health.

In my practice, clients are encouraged to:

  • reflect on their lifestyle and its effects on their health, both positive and negative
  • prioritize any changes they need to initiate towards restoring balance in their lives
  • identify barriers to good health
  • develop skills needed to negotiate barriers, to make and to maintain identified changes, and
  • select a treatment option with which they are comfortable.

The clients at Meaningfully Connected LLC are on a journey to become meaningfully connected with all aspects of their life and health. Call (813) 571-1672 today and invite me to journey alongside you towards better health.
