Why did you choose mental health as a career path?
“I chose to go into mental health because when the body and the brain are in synch, patients’ overall health is greatly improved. I believe in treating the whole person, helping people see the mental and physical connection.”
“Dr O”Hara was a good compassionate provider. I am on the autistic spectrum and was diagnosed at age 50. She had some good insights and medication advice though I am skeptical to try based on prior experiences. I have another appt with her and look forward to it” ~ M.O.
