CORNERSTONE OF MENTAL HEALTH
Jon Keyes, LPC, is a licensed professional counselor working in private practice at Hearthside Healing in Portland Oregon. As a holistic mental health therapist. He is often asked how that is different from a regular counselor; while there is some overlap, there are also some differences.
The main difference is that a holistic therapist spends quite a bit of time focused on health and well being. That means looking at diet, lifestyle habits, herbal and vitamin supplements, sleep, rest and exercise patterns as cornerstones of good mental health. At the core of the practice Jon emphasizes nourishment. A well nourished body helps regulate emotions, diminishes anxiety and depression, strengthens cognitive function and improves an overall state of well being. You can follow Jon at his facebook site.
