Good health means taking care of your mind and your body. But with so much information available, it can be difficult to know the best ways to get and stay healthy. We’re writing this blog so you’ll have a credible, trusted resource to help you and your family live healthier lives.

We are psychologists, health professionals specially trained in helping people make lifestyle and behavior changes and better cope with life’s problems. Most of us have our own practices, helping people during sessions of psychotherapy. But you can also find us working in hospitals, schools, nursing homes and universities. You may even see us collaborating with physicians, helping you prevent diseases or better manage any ailments.

We hope to keep this blog informative, interesting and, yes, even entertaining. And we hope you’ll be part of the conversation, asking questions and joining in the comments.
