Today is the day I embark on my blogging journey.  Everything I read promotes the importance of having a blog so I decide to join on in.  As a therapist, I’ve learned the hard and easy way how important writing can be to a thriving practice, just as significant as therapeutic skills. 

My blog will be all things mental health related.  I’m planning on blogging about being a therapist, techniques that have worked and ones that haven’t, tips related to mental health, links to helpful resources and anything else that may come up that would be of interest to post.  I invite you to follow my blog and provide me with any comments of suggestions.  Happy Blogging!
