Art Therapy

Draw something and feel better about your life. How is art therapy different from Painting with A Twist, other than less alcohol? We talk to Jenna from our friends Carve Your Own Path. She’s an accomplished psychotherapist and certified art therapist. Most of our conversation is a common theme for both of our practices: what can people do on their own so they need to visit us less frequently? When words fail us, art and creativity help us express and know ourselves–no skills required.

Nick Angelis, CRNA, draws on his own experience with ketamine and adjuncts such as magnesium to discuss who can benefit most from intravenous infusions.

Family Conflict

Amanda Kotsura, LISW, from Carve Your Own Path, Inc. talks about setting boundaries with family and the hard, important work of getting along. Though originally pertaining to holiday gatherings, the wisdom from this episode of Ascend Health Show holds for maintaining warmth and trust in all relationships. We discuss conflict beyond the usual platitudes of “family is family.” The opposite approach is to "release what doesn’t serve you.”

Youtube Adderall

Psychotherapist Rodney Long, LISW, is back with Nick Angelis, CRNA, to discuss mental health tech start ups like BetterHelp, Mindbloom, and FieldTrip.

Is low-tech and personalized, or hi-tech and automated care the best way forward in 2023?
