What excites you most about the evolving mental health landscape?

Telehealth adoption is on the rise, technology enables individuals to take better control of their health, mental health plan is prioritized over other benefits when choosing an employer, efforts are being made to increase awareness and destigmatize mental illness.

Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

I have noticed that more people are facing issues related to depression and anxiety more than ever before typically related to the pandemic/crisis we are facing. Many people have lost loved ones, close friends, job security,etc and are facing the unknown therefore they are more worried about their next step, next move. This insight has helped me to be more understanding, compassionate, caring toward others.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

That therapy is an investment in both the present and the future. The skills you learn in therapy, and the support and insight you receive, will not only help you with the situation you're in, but will become part of the "toolbox" on your lifelong journey.
