In the years since I began my successful journey toward the PhD I’ve learned so much about the importance of maintaining good mental health. As my visitors get to know me better you will discover that I am a deep advocate for self-care and wellness.
Most people who enter graduate school want to deepen their knowledge about academic subjects and strengthen their professional career aspirations.
But there’s another whole element of graduate education that often challenges us to the core: Our life-management skills.
As tempting as it may be to ignore our personal needs, we owe it to ourselves to treat them with loving kindness.
I view personal growth and professional development as a form of mountain-climbing. Preparing for the journey includes caring for your mental and physical health.
I have a huge compassion for helping individuals and graduate students sort out the issues and challenges of life and of graduate studies, and I do hope it shows in every page of this site.
