IT'S TIME TO HEAL... FROM THE HEART
It’s difficult to find someone more authentic, real & passionate on the topic of mental health than Mitch. He has an uncanny ability to cut-through with audiences that are typically closed off from emotionally-driven content. He doesn’t preach or use tired scientific data around sleep or diet. He draws on his own lived experience, as well as his clinical education, to share insights that are actionable, relatable and digestible. His raw style isn’t for everyone. But, for the companies, communities & conferences that trust him with this work, he is yet to receive feedback other than exceeded expectations.
