He goes beyond this and aims to help his patients achieve their best mental and physical health to reduce the risk of future setbacks, ultimately helping them to feel fulfilled and able to gain lasting happiness. He does this by helping them to identify and make changes to specific thoughts and habits, as well as addressing how their relationships in their professional and/or personal lives affect their emotional health.
