I value Union Health's Center commitment to providing preventative and comprehensive care for patients that includes a patient’s overall well-being. For me, physical health and mental health are closely linked. I believe to improve our mental health it is useful to consider the relationship between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I also work with patients on increasing resilience and finding meaning in the context of one’s life journey.
Advice to Patients: I encourage patients to think of adequate sleep as an important part of mental health care!
