Dr. B and the magic pill picker

Working in mental health can be hard.

And that's where I swoop in!

Sometimes laughter really is the best medicine!

Show up to play and laugh, and then stick around for...

  • Answers to the medication questions that have you wondering what to say to your clients
  • Exciting impact of how you help in therapy with the neuroscience to back it up
  • Explanations that let you take action with clients right now!

Disclaimer: This is a fill-in-the blank story I created for fun! I love being a psychiatrist, taking care of patients, and teaching. This is to keep things light because working in mental health can be hard. This is in no way intended to be hurtful or make fun of something very serious like mental illness or treatment. But it is intended to be a brief break coming from a light and silly space. If this isn’t a good fit for you, please don’t play and reach out to me with concerns so I can try to make it better.
