Kevin Love, a professional NBA player, has become a mental health activist in the hopes of helping others be more mindful of their mental well-being.

During his game last week, Love had a panic attack which was an eye-opening experience that led him to share his struggles with mental health. After 29 years, he has accepted he has an anxiety and panic disorder. Now he encourages all of us to fight the stigma around mental health and seek help when needed.

The first week of March is Eating Disorder Awareness week. Leslee Gillette, LMHC, shares her perspective on eating disorders and how she can help you through your journey to recovery.

I am a licensed psychotherapist and have over 7 years of experience helping women navigate their recovery from their eating disorder. I have treated a variety of eating disorders including Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder. I operate from a "Health at Every Size Perspective" and truly believe in supporting people of all sizes from a nonjudgmental and compassionate perspective. I work closely with nutritionists, psychiatrists and physicians to ensure that you receive evidence-based, wrap around treatment that addresses all the symptoms contributing to your struggles with food and body.

If you or your loved one are struggling with an eating disorder or disordered eating, I can help assist you in evaluating and determining treatment needs and placement. Additionally, I can offer support for individuals and families who are transitioning back home from a higher level of care.

Dr. Richard Taborga, PsyD, therapist at Lotus Counseling, shares his thoughts on mental wellness:

Mental Wellness Awareness Month provides us with the opportunity to focus on small changes that may have a big impact on our daily emotional state. The movement is about prevention, instead of the treatment of mental illness, and I hope that people will take a moment to assess their mental health and explore the changes that may contribute to their happiness.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental wellness is “a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with normal stressors of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community."

At Lotus Counseling Center we are committed to our client’s happiness. It’s a great privilege for people to allow us to join them during a moment of distress, and to see the personal growth and transformation of each individual. However, our responsibility doesn’t end there; it extends to playing our part to educate the public in an effort to change the stigma surrounding mental illness and psychotherapy.

Leslee Gillette, LMHC, a Lotus Counseling psychotherapist, shares her blog on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Emotional Regulation:

Life is full of unpredictable ups and downs. Sometimes these
experiences can be manageable but what happens if you feel out of control and unable to self-soothe, finding it difficult or impossible to return to your baseline. Emotion Regulation skills and other DBT skills can help you find your way back.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy was originally developed to treat
Borderline Personality Disorder however; research is showing that DBT can be used to effectively treat a wide range of behavioral and emotional problems including depression, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, PTSD and substance abuse. Whether you are struggling with intense, negative emotions, difficulty in relationships or impulsive behavior, DBT skills can help you learn how to self-soothe, manage your emotions in an adaptive and effective way, and learn how to get your needs met in your relationships. I have found DBT skills easy to teach and easy to learn as long as you are willing to consider new ways of approaching situations. I can help you create a life worth living, which encompasses decreasing problematic behaviors, while simultaneously accepting yourself and life circumstances in the present moment.

January is Mental Wellness Awareness Month

Mental wellness means striving for growth and being open to change through self discovery, personal story writing, and acceptance. Think of mental wellness as a lifelong journey rather than an ultimate destination to make the most of your progress. Beginning therapy at Lotus Counseling Center with one of our esteemed professionals is a great place to start your mental wellness journey.

Leslee Gillette, LMHC, our newest associate at Lotus Counseling, can guide you in learning mindfulness skills and how to regulate your emotional reactions.

"Mindfulness skills allow you to learn how to be truly present, with yourself, with others, and with the world around you. Mindfulness is a foundational skill in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). These skills also teach you how to experience your emotions in a non-judgmental way, and ultimately help you create a life worth living."
