Expert Insights and Perspectives on Stress Management & Mental Health

Few desires in life seem more natural and predominant than that for happiness. In fact, pursuing this desire is one of our most fundamental human instincts. If your basic needs are met and you aren’t struggling to survive, there’s a good chance you’ll be searching for more happiness. Though we all have slightly different views about it, most of us have an idea of what should, can, and will make us happy. Typically, this ideal state includes being in a good mood, achieving a certain level of satisfaction with life, feeling enjoyment, and experiencing positive emotions. Among other benefits, these feelings can motivate us to connect with others, overcome obstacles, and pursue our goals, as well as protect us from some of the harmful effects of stress.

I am a happily married, 40 year old working mother of 3. I began seeing the brilliant Dr. Neehall in my mid 20’s when I was deep into an eating disorder, depressed and severely anxious. Prior to my first session with Dr. Neehall I had attempted therapy with other therapists resulting in me feeling even more anxious and lacking direction. Within 60 clinical minutes dr. Neehall delivered the hard truths and set me straight. She completely curtailed my current trajectory and set me up for a life of happiness. To this day, I consider Dr. Neehall as one of those people you just know you wouldn’t be the same without.

I have had the honor to be a client of Dr Joan Neehall for several years in my intentional quest to live lighter and happier.  I have always been a resilient survivor, yet never realizing my full potential.  Dr Neehall takes a stellar approach to shine an authentic light on roadblocks that resulted in an avalanche of ‘aha’ and life changing moments.  She is a warm, perceptive and meticulously committed professional that evokes highly relevant conversation and perspective.  My life, my level of self-contentment has been immeasurably enriched by my choice to work together with Dr. Joan Neehall.  Much gratitude.

Joan Neehall is a renown psychotherapist whose scope encompasses many area of inquiry.  An accomplished writer, she is exceptionally expert on human happiness. Learn from her and you will learn from one of the best.
