I help people become better people.

I have been in the field of counseling since 1997 and a professional school counselor since 2002.

DO YOU EVER THINK ABOUT YOUR MENTAL HEALTH IN YOUR PROFESSION?

Indeed, I do think of my mind health in the services my compa provides.

WHAT UNIQUE CHALLENGES DO YOU ENCOUNTER SPECIFICALLY FOR YOUR JOB THAT HAS AN IMPACT ON YOUR MENTAL HEALTH THAT OTHERS MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT?

I don't have any unique challenges that impact my mind health, however on occasion when someone fails to plan effectively and want me to support last-minute events it does annoy me sometimes.

WHEN DID YOU REALIZE THAT YOU SHOULD ALSO CONSIDER YOUR MENTAL HEALTH WHEN TAKING ON DAY-TO-DAY ACTIVITIES?

My mind health is a part of my daily routine, which includes (prayer with my wife, exercise and lots of water.)

HOW DO YOU MANAGE THOSE STRESSORS ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS?

Prayer alone and with my wife, exercise, playing tennis, riding my motorcycle, walk outside, reading, and drinking lots of water to name a few.

HOW DOES BEING MENTALLY HEALTHY HELP IN YOUR FIELD OF WORK OR ON THE JOB?

It is paramount. When I am well, I serve my clientele well.

WHAT DOES EUSTRESS LOOK LIKE FOR YOU AT WORK? AT HOME/AWAY FROM WORK?

Prayer alone and with my wife, exercise, playing tennis, riding my motorcycle, walk outside, reading, and drinking lots of water to name a few.

WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULD TELL SOMEONE JUST STARTING IN YOUR PROFESSION OR A YOUNG PERSON WHO ASPIRES TO BE THE PROFESSIONAL THAT YOU ARE?

Self-care is about rejuvenating, replenishing, refreshing your mind, body, spirit, and soul; and it should be fun.
