What is Mental Health?

Individuals may be considered mentally healthy when living a fulfilling, productive, and meaningful life without experiencing significant internal distress and recognizing these successes.

Increasing mental health, then, would mean increasing your overall level of well-being as well-being refers to your mental, physical, spiritual health. Mental health involves a person’s emotional, social, familial, sexual, behavioral, and cognitive health. An essential trait in people with high levels of mental health is self-confidence/esteem/awareness.

People who have confidence in themselves feel good about their talents, abilities, and potential. They do not shy away from new challenges or activities that may be outside their comfort zone. Self Confidence is strongly linked to self-esteem, which is defined as how one feels about themself. Having high self-esteem means being aware and okay with where one is. Essentially, a person with high levels of mental health can meet themselves where they are and accept their journey.

There are multiple ways to perceive.

Your perception is so important. We’ll work together to understand how your internal psyche and external influences come together to form how you interpret the world.

Exploration of the emotional and cognitive aspects of your behaviors will make for tangible changes. You’ll have a deeper understanding of how your mind and body work together and feel more in control of both. Ultimately, you are a forever learner and cultivator of your life.

The therapeutic process will give insights into identifying unhealthy patterns that have developed over the years and the steps to gaining new, healthier ways of carrying yourself. Having regular appointments will provide you the accountability necessary in making these changes.

What are the biological factors at play?

Exploring biological factors is crucial to personal growth. We feel that your neurochemistry is just as necessary as your outside environment. Gaining knowledge about your biological makeup and how it might be playing a role in your relationships is vital.

What do your history and biological factors tell us? How are they driving your perceptions? Do these perceptions still work for you, or is that the change you’re looking to make?

You are captivating.

As an individual, you may find yourself in the role of being a parent, child, spouse, lover, friend, boss, or coworker. In a relationship, you may see yourselves as the power couple, the funny couple, the couple that had it all together.

How you interact with others may change depending on your role or what role influences you the most. The roles you take on play into how you have learned to define yourself. In therapy, you will identify your most ideal self or relationship and work towards it.
