The truth is that our mental health was never intended to maintain itself. How can we expect our complex mental and emotional systems to stay in tip-top shape without attention or care?
We can't. As long as we are living and breathing humans on this earth, preservation of mental and emotional health will be as pivotal to our survival as our physical health.
So why doesn't everyone go to therapy? Well, for the same reason we don't all go to the doctors. If it doesn't hurt... if I can manage... then I'll be fine. Many believe that therapy is only for the broken, the traumatized.
False. Therapy is for anyone who wants to heal or improve their mental and emotional systems. In other words, therapy is for anyone who wants to live, love, think, and feel better.
Some people will say they need therapy. Others will say they want therapy. Regardless of why you go, going to therapy is an investment toward your best self.
An investment is an allocation of money toward the expectation of some benefit in the future. In the material world, investing contributes to your financial wealth.
In the world of health, investing toward the growth of your mind and soul contributes to your mental wealth.
Mental wealth allows you to live, love, think, and feel extraordinary.
Mental wealth is how you live the life you deserve.
... and we sincerely want to help you get there.
The basic of all emotions. Anxiety is what keeps us safe and alert when we are in danger. We need anxiety, but not all the time. Chronic anxiety and panic result from an overactive sympathetic nervous system, and even small things become a threat to your peace.
Healing from trauma takes time. Be patient with the pace of recovery and remember that everyone’s response to trauma is different. The most important thing is to START your process of healing... it is never too late.
We all want and need to feel connected to those around us. Some relationships heal us, some hurt us, and some are missing from our lives. Feeling lonely can be the worst of all feelings, but know you are not alone.
Stress is the result of not having adequate resources to cope with the demands in your life. All people experience stress from time to time. However, excessive or chronic stress can take a toll on your mental and physical health.
Some people describe depression as “living in a black hole” or having a feeling of impending doom. Men in particular can feel angry and restless. However you experience depression, it can seriously impact your life if left untreated.
Mourning is an intimate and unique experience for each of us. There’s no manual on how to cope with loss and certainly no right or wrong way to go through the stages of grief that might come from it.
Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress. Burnout is often associated with work, but can impact every aspect of your life. It can have you feeling stuck and hopeless about what to do next.
Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It’s an ongoing circle.
