Stateline Retreat in Primm, NV - December 11th 2009info_outline
Tonight, I am joined in the studio with my wife and psychologist Anna.
Anna has a private practice here in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area. Anna specializes in the treatment of Anxiety and Depression/Mood Disorders, Divorce, and Addiction related issues.
Part of good mental health practices is to take care of one’s self. And part of that is to be mindful during potentially stressful times like the holiday season.
