October 2017, Volume 6, Issue 10

Happy October, SynerLINK Community Members,

This month, I’d like to take a closer look at telemedicine, which is a key cornerstone of my practice. I’m thrilled to have been invited to speak about telemedicine at the Mental Health Coalition of Verde Valley’s upcoming Mental Health Summit 2017, on October 13th, alongside such luminaries as Dr. Leslie Korn, PhD. The theme is “Innovation, Technology and the Future of Mental Health Therapy”. If you live near Camp Verde, AZ, I encourage you to attend. http://mentalhealthcoalitionvv.org/event/mental-health-summit-2017/

September 2017, Volume 6, Issue 9

Happy September, SynerLINK Community Member,

SynerLINK is back after our summer hiatus!  I hope you had a lovely time of rejuventation.

Fall is almost here, and it’s time to talk about the effects of light on our health and well-being. This is such an important factor in that we’re re-visting Foundation 1 for Health and Happiness this month – Rest. This month’s top article is a great review of the evidence for light therapy on mood. Definitely check out Dr. Phelps’ whole site – it’s full of excellent, easy-to-understand explanations on this important topic.
