I overheard two teens talking while I was in line picking up a prescription.  I rarely stop and go in. Let’s be real, the drive thru is easier. That day, for some reason, I decided to go in.    I don’t believe in coincidences, by the way. I believe in the universe –   So, […]

It’s invisible, even though it feels […]

It’s National Depression Screening Day During Mental Illness Awareness Week : Say What?

For some people, talking about feelings comes easily. And for others, it can take a lot of work.   Some do better in one on one situations, while others excel in group settings.   That’s why I’ve always run my practice my way.   Because no two people are alike.   Because insurance companies don’t […]
