The greatest common demonstrator we all face as humans is brokenness, but not everyone finds hope. In this very first episode of “The Hope Straightahead Podcast”, we discuss:
– Mental Health
– the Enneagram (briefly)
and a WHOLE bunch of other topics & practical steps towards becoming a “better you”; as we unpack this idea of “Hope Straightahead”, with our special guest, Dr. MaryEllen Eller, MD.
MaryEllen Eller graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine and completed psychiatric residency training at Loma Linda University Medical Center. She is a board certified Psychiatrist with speciality training in psychopharmacology and high performance medicine. MaryEllen has partnered with her husband, Nick Eller, DPT; together they have founded Rx Performance Therapy and The Performance Lab where they provide mental skills training and movement consultation services for individuals seeking non-pharmacologic interventions to optimize performance and pursue wellness. Additionally, MaryEllen provides psychiatric care in an inpatient setting where she oversees the care of individuals in acute psychiatric crisis.
While MaryEllen is passionate about psychiatric care and the importance of preventative mental health, her highest calling and greatest joy comes from being the mother to two spirited children. Her greatest desire is to raise her children to understand the value of kindness and responsibility while embracing their God-ordained purpose. She intentionally reinforces the ideas “I can do hard things” and “practice kindness” while attempting to model this for her children.
In her free time, MaryEllen enjoys doing nothing. When she feels compelled to do something you can find her practicing latte art, sipping coffee, baking scones, off-roading with her family and feeling guilty about not exercising.
