What To Expect At Your Visit
THE SCIENCE OF RESILIENCE
Are you a working high performance professional interested in optimal mental focus, better work life balance, or reduced stress? Mindfulness services offered by Dr. Love for wellness and burnout prevention may be of interest.
An initial visit based on referral from your family doctor will review your
current daily biological patterns, mental and emotional habits, and specific goals. After greater understanding, we then review an outcome-based approach to greater well being, with a structured plan and specific focus.
An initial visit provides the opportunity to see if you can benefit from services offered by Dr. Love.
All visits are booked on a non-urgent basis.
THE SCIENCE OF MINDFULNESS AND WELLNESS
HAPPINESS AND HEALTH
A Psychiatric Consult is the first visit to ensure that wellness services are the best fit for you at present.
The Consult is an opportunity to review questions on how to achieve success in your life - in relationships, career, lifestyle, or a sense of purpose. If stress is impacting your sense of mental agility, understanding how to optimize your mind for better performance may be of interest.
Currently, the consult is not suited to those seeking psychiatric services as currently Dr. Love's psychotherapy practice is full.
RE-DESIGN YOUR BRAIN
Learn how to re-design the mental maps in your brain to create a life more aligned to your true self, your dream life, and your core sense of happiness and joy. As we move through the ten sessions, you learn more about the science of your brain and nervous system - how the architecture and physics of this intricate biology impacts your daily life and abilities.
The Individual Mindfulness Program is currently only available for wellness clients as other programs are full.
If your interest is in optimal well being and you do not have a psychiatric disorder, Wellness Science services optimize your lifestyle including the mind body connection, diet, exercise, emotional intelligence, relationships, and a connection to something greater, so that you can achieve greater vitality, energy, and adaptability.
The Wellness Science Program is for clients without a psychiatric diagnosis who desire greater well being and optimal performance.
Due to limited space, only a few spotrs are currently available.
For corporations, Dr. Love offers educational talks and workshops for high performance professionals to (1) discuss the science of mindfulness and how to make your practice individually suited to you, (2) learn how to prevent burnout, (3) address health care provider resilience and wellness, and (4) design wellness planning for work-life balance.
“Before you can change the world around you, you must learn to change the worlds within you. ”
To request an initial visit, consult with your family doctor.
Dr. Love is currently accepting new referrals.

Potential Wellness Clients
If you are a working professional without a psychiatric diagnosis and interested in optimal well being on multiple levels, yet struggling with a barrier to success that seems to be a blind spot, I am keen to hear your story. I have a passion for working with individuals who have "done all the things" yet still don't feel optimal.
In wellness sessions, you can deepen your mindfulness practice, perfect work-life balance, better navigate the architecture of your brain, understand the science of your relationships, and deepen your sense of purpose.
The initial consult is via your family doctor. After this, wellness and prevention services are not covered by MSP, thus are private pay.
