D.U.D.E. stands for Developing Understanding, Developing Empathy. To recover from any kind of mental health issue, the starting point is understanding what you call the issue, how it developed, and how you treat it. That's the "understanding" part. Then you have to "develop empathy" for yourself and normalize it's okay to struggle. Mental health issues stem from biological origins and environmental triggers. It's not your fault, but it is your responsibility to get better. It takes hard work on your part. Face the issues head on, be courageous, ask for help, and know you're not alone.
I promise you this: I will provide education, resources, honesty, skill development, and an opportunity to be fully heard and understood. The work of recovery does not happen in the therapy session. It happens when you apply the lessons, tools, and insights gained in session in the real world. I will work as hard as you will. It all starts with you asking for help.
I'm the founder of D.U.D.E. Mental Health. I consider myself a "wounded healer," someone who has suffered from depression, anxiety, eating disorders, substance abuse, and self-harm in my life. I get this stuff inside and out. If you're ready to work, let's get started.
