What does wellness mean?

Wellness means developing healthy habits and using them consistently in your daily life. While the first thing that comes to mind is often physical health, mental health is just as important when trying to achieve wellness.


At Tardigrade Psychological Services, LLC, Dr. Goldberg specializes in mental health. She supports patients as they make changes to achieve mental wellness, which can also benefit their physical wellness.

When do I need help with mental wellness?

You could need help with mental wellness if you’re experiencing negative changes in your thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. Some signs that could indicate you need help are:


  • Excessive stress in your life
  • Constant anxiety
  • Constant sadness or feelings of hopelessness
  • Frequent crying
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Frequent irritability or losing your temper
  • Major mood swings
  • Being overly worried about irrational things
  • Sleep habit changes
  • Eating and weight changes
  • Self-isolation
  • Thoughts about dying or suicide


These symptoms are common in people suffering from anxiety disorders, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD or complex PTSD).


But you can also experience poor mental health even if you don’t have a diagnosable mental condition. For example, people who lose a loved one struggle with grief, so wellness care focused on that loss will help.


Or if you’re looking to improve one particular area of your life, for example, honing your golf game, you could benefit from sports psychology.


Anyone who doesn’t feel happy and satisfied with their life — or wants their life to be even better — can benefit from mental wellness care.

What does mental wellness care involve?

Dr. Goldberg uses cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to help you discover and alter negative thought pathways. She uses psychoanalysis and family systems theory to help you learn how your past influenced the thoughts and feelings you’re experiencing today.


Through your therapy, you’ll learn new coping techniques, relaxation methods, conflict resolution skills, and other ways to manage challenges successfully. Dr. Goldberg can also help you set goals and create pathways to follow and reach them.


Dr. Goldberg named Tardigrade Psychological Services, LLC, after the tardigrade, one of the most resilient and self-sufficient animals on earth. She helps you develop those qualities to overcome, achieve, and be your best, ultimately achieving the true mental wellness you deserve.
