February 2017, Volume 6, Issue 2

Happy February, SynerLINK Friends,

It’s been another exciting month here at SynerGenius! I have been invited to present a “Future of Functional in Five” talk as part of the Functional Forum’s upcoming event in Boulder, CO, alongside integrative psychiatry luminaries like Dr. Izabella Wentz, Dr. Janet Settle, and Dr. Will Van Derveer. I’ll be discussing the use of telemedicine to promote women’s mental health. You can join us in-person in Boulder on February 6 or register to watch it online: http://bit.ly/evolution-of-psychiatry Check out the archives of prior Forums (where this will also be recorded) on this month’s featured link!

I have found this to be true in my own practice. I am a huge believer in the healing power of loving and caring for an animal – and having them love you back!
