Dylan is keenly interested in different philosophies and life perspectives. His passion for philosophy adds another layer to his therapy as it helps him be an impartial, non-judgmental ally so that you feel safe and heard.

Q&A

What does good mental health look like to you?
I believe having good mental health includes various considerations: Healing from our past, maintaining a healthy and stable mental state through strong coping mechanisms in the present and looking at the being you would like to be in the world of your future.
What is a motto or idea that gives you reassurance when you’re having a difficult time?
The past can influence a person’s future but does not define who they are. Let us look at the being you want to see yourself in the world.
What would you say to a friend struggling with a mental health issue?
Difficult emotions such as anxiety, depression, anger, and displeasure are a part of the human condition. However, what is also necessary to the human condition is human interaction, support, and healing.
