Welcome to Balance Wellness Center!
After seven year of working for outpatient clinics, hospitals, residential programs, and counseling centers on the east and west coast, I am ready and excited for the launch of Balance Wellness Center! Over the course of this journey, I have taken the approaches that I believe offer the best opportunities for change, balanced living, and overall wellness and am excited to offer them to San Diego individuals and families.
BALANCE: it’s a simple word but a challenging thing to achieve. Through my work experience I have realized that managing life’s challenges, whatever they may be, comes down to this one word. When it came time to name my practice there was no better word to sum up what I want to provide my clients: the opportunity to bring balance into their lives. For some they may have had a more balanced life prior to a life event that set them off course, for others balance is something they may have never experienced because it was never taught or modeled to them. Depression, anxiety, relationship issues, behavior problems, social struggles, and life changes are all made worse by the behaviors we engage in when we struggle. Unfortunately these behaviors keep pushing us more out of balance and further away from mental wellness.
Preventive Mental Health Care
My experience working in inpatient and residential facilities always left me thinking and wishing someone could have intervened before things got so out of hand. There are many reasons why this doesn’t happen including stigma, shame, funding, and a host of other things. It is part of my mission to provide preventive mental health care to our community and help individuals and organizations identify risk factors and early warning signs. With more changes like this, people may have the needed awareness and support to seek assistance before problems spiral out of control.
