Licensed Psychologists (LPs), along with clinical social workers and other practitioners of psychology are highly trained to help remove sources of trauma and emotional interference that affect our health. When we have chronic or complicated health issues related to our lifestyle choices (diabetes, cardiac issues, obesity, digestive problems, fatigue, etc.) they can be an invaluable source of guidance, information and care, because many emotional issues underscore choices we make about how we take care of ourselves. Making a psychologist or clinical social worker part of your holistic health team helps ensure you get optimal care!
