As a lifelong learner my philosophy is to use my strengths to strengthen others as long as I live. Problem-solving is the method I use. America had the third highest rate of depression in the world (China and India are leaders) and Norway and Finland have the best mental health populations in the world. Solace Place was founded to provide information and service on Wellness Practices through positive psychology, positive reinforcement, mindfulness, affirmations, with daily best practices for living. One in four Americans has a diagnosable mental illness at some point in their lives. Cognitive-Behavior Therapy is one method used to treat toxic thinking patterns. I authored Grateful Reflections Journal in 2021 to provide concrete guided journaling to replace negative habitual thinking with optimal proactive thinking patterns.
