Health and Wellness

Health and Wellness Psychology builds from principles and theories of psychology, biology, health, and social sciences. Health psychologists are concerned with promotion and maintenance of health; and the prevention and treatment of illness across the lifespan. In addition to being a Licensed Psychologist, I am a senior instructor of The Nia Technique
