Done with feeling off-kilter?

I don’t know about you but I’m ready to shift from surviving to thriving.

In the face of danger, our first response is often to run for our lives or to freeze. After the initial shock, we fight, we get busy dealing with the basic necessities of life. We function in survival mode. After a beat or two, or more, we then get into working the problem. Depending on our training and our past experience with traumatic events we go through the steps with varying speed and efficiency.

“Work the problem,” that’s one of my mantras these days. Repeating it to myself, keeps me from getting overwhelmed. Another good expression to remember is “two heads are better than one.” You may already know that I love puzzles, all kinds of puzzles. I’d like to help you with yours.

Too much stress can mess with your mental and physical health. Be brave! Be wise! Don’t wait! Get help!

Hire a nurse practitioner, a compassionate health puzzle solver. I’m here to help you get back on an even keel.

Need another reason? Looking after yourself well, will enable you to better look after those you love. It is the most worthwhile investment!

Currently, I’m using a health video conferencing platform. You can talk with me from the comfort of your home.

It doesn’t have to be this hard!

Those who know me well, know that I’m not really good at asking for help. I’m working on it. The journey to get to this success has been a difficult one. I will not bore you with the details but suffice it to say that when I first set out to start building my nurse practitioner private practice, I reached out to several people to help me with web design and after several very disappointing attempts I decided to create, on my own, the original version of It was ok. I learned a lot in the process but it didn’t have to be this hard.

I live by a few mantras. One which I learned when I was in the sea cadets is  “Lead By Example.” When I’m talking myself into doing something hard, I think to myself: what would I want my patients to do? Be brave, ask for help, and if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. 

Asking for help isn’t easy but struggling alone isn’t either. Reach out! Do it once, do it twice, do it as many times as it takes to find your match. If you haven’t found the mental healthcare you need I encourage you to give me a try. Book a free introduction session and find out how I might be able to help you.
