I have witnessed firsthand the power of grounding techniques inhelping individuals manage their mental health symptoms. Grounding techniques aresimple strategies that help to bring us back into the present moment, and can beparticularly helpful for those experiencing anxiety, depression, or other mental healthchallenges. You here reading my blog at this moment is being present. Here are a few...
Boundaries help to define our personal space
Of course, while connections with others can be incredibly beneficial to your mental health, it's also important to set and maintain healthy boundaries in your relationships. Boundaries helps to define our personal space and protect our emotional well-being, and can prevent you from feeling overwhelmed or drained by the demands of others. Setting boundaries can also help to foster deeper, more meaningful connections with others, as it allows you to communicate your needs and expectations in a...
Connections with Others
I know it’s been a while since you have heard from me but I am here now and hope tobring you updates often about therapy. If you come to our office in Olympia onWednesdays, you’re most likely going to run into me. If you wish, you can pet me whileat your appointments. As a therapy dog, I have seen firsthand the powerful impact thathuman and animal connections can have on mental health. While anxiety anddepression can often leave us feeling isolated and alone, connecting with others canprovide...
I hope to see you!
Hello Again. It’s been a while. You may not have seen me too often at the office like you used to. I can’t use the Covid excuse because that’s not the reason. I have been having a lot of bad hair days but that’s also not the reason. I took a mental health break. Some days you just need to take a break, and sometimes that break will be longer than a day. It was important to take care of me, and that’s what I have been doing. I’ve been taking some walks in nature and also making more time...
Connections with others- Animal Therapy
Hello! Tis I again, your dear pal Eevee! I know it’s been awhile since I posted a blog. I’m alive and well and thriving! I wanted to share with you how important it is to have a connection with others, especially ones that you can trust wholeheartedly. Though I have a human family that takes care of my needs and gives me lots of love, as well as a work family at Genuine Healthcare who adore me, I also have a few friends that I share this wonderful life with. Here are some photos of me and my...
Eevee Celebrates Independence Day
Hopefully everyone had a great Independence Day! To be honest, it isn’t exactly my favorite holiday. I know the fourth of July is supposed to be a day to celebrate freedom... but every time it rolls around, I feel anything but free. Something about the big loud fireworks makes me feel so anxious, and no matter how many times my family tells me it will be okay - my body doesn’t really believe them. A lot of the time, my loved ones can calm me down and help me feel okay about things... But as...
Chronicles of Eevee
Last episode we read Eevee’s first attempt in writing her first blog for Genuine Healthcare (via her ghost writers). This is her first attempt in writing the stories of what we think goes on in her mind and what she would like to write if she could write about her adventures: It was like any other day. I would wake up, and go on walks. Pretty simple I'd say. Everyday I would do the same thing; over and over again. It would never cross my mind that the things I did were boring. I...
Greetings from Eevee!
Hi everyone! My name’s Eevee and I’m the therapy dog for Genuine Healthcare. You may see me hanging around the office sometimes! Therapy dogs are trained to help when emotions become overwhelming and to provide different kinds of treatment-related assistance. I’ve been working hard on my certification, and I’m so excited to offer wonderfully adorable and fluffy support! But alas, I am still learning and may sometimes get excited or a little loud... If this happens, please be patient with me!...
A Note from Harvey Hall
Hello, I hope that all of you are healthy, practicing your social distancing and enjoying this extra home time with family. I personally have found my time at home a great source of peace and joy, and noticing things that are happening to my family that I otherwise would not. While trying to practice social distancing, our practice has had the tremendous opportunity to increase the Telepsychiatry portion of our practice. This has allowed our established and new patients to have their...
