"When it comes to living your life to the fullest, and being truly happy, there are many factors to consider and balance. Everything from your food, exercise, environment, people, schedule, and budget impact your state of mind, in addition to the medicines you take. Rushing in and getting pills does not always solve the problem. At the same time avoiding medications, and spending years in talk therapy alone, also does not always solve the problem. By reviewing the multiple facets of your life, it becomes possible to find a path that gets around the barriers to living your fullest way. Throughout my career, I have had the honor to get to know my patients and help them achieve their personal goals through mental health. And, I measure my success not simply by my ability to alleviate their symptoms, but instead by my ability to improve the quality of their lives. I hope I will have the opportunity to do the same with you."
