More About Maryellen

Hey, there!

Hey – 

I’m here to change the conversation about mental health. I want to share what I know, continue to learn, and advocate for mental health awareness and mental well being.

Mental health and Self Care are such buzz words in our society today. But what do they mean? What does it look like? In an era of self-improvement, I want to add in my professional expertise to show what self care truly is and how to continually work towards positive mental health.

I want to also incorporate mental health into the workplace. Awareness about the impact of employee happiness on work performance has been steadily increasing over the past few years. Through various studies, it has been found that happy employees are 12% more productive than unhappy employees and stay in their jobs four times longer.

According to Sonja Lyubomirsky’s ‘The How of Happiness’, 50% of happiness is genetically determined, 10% of happiness is due to life circumstances, and 40% of happiness is the result of the individual’s own outlook. I look at that 40%.

Through my 10+ years of experience as a mental health therapist along with continual research, I have developed a method based on exploring: joy, authenticity, and mindset shifts (or as I like to call it, dance) to increase self satisfaction as well as workplace team building and employee satisfaction.

I love connecting with people, seriously, my job and life is about talking and connecting with people, so send me a message! I promise I’ll reply!

That’s me. Laughing naturally while leaning against my desk.

Not staged at all…
