Derek Russell, LPC, NCC
Licensed Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, and Neurotherapist
What is wellness and how do we achieve it? It can be different for each person. Some may only focus on physical/medical or nutritional aspects individually, while others focus on a combination of these things. Another person's wellness might be achieved when they can say that through training and hard work, they took their "game" to the next level. It isn't our job to tell you what wellness is for you. Our hope is that together we can map out your goals and we can help you with a plan to reach them.
