"Meredith Grey once said, 'Fixing your mental health isn't like surgery. We can't just run the blood work and check the vitals. With mental health, progress is way harder to measure. And if something's wrong, we have to take action. There's a lot of uncertainty, there's a lot of fear, and what might be easy for one person, for someone else might take inner strength you can't even imagine. But we have to try. We have to stand up to our demons. We have to face reality whenever possible and ask for help when we can't. And when we do that, healing is possible.' Every person is unique. I pride myself in meeting you where you are currently at, find what works best for you, and creating a plan together that will best improve YOUR mental health." -Stephanie Mansfield, LCSW
