Pandemic fatigue, anxiety, stress, uncertainty, and disconnection are challenges many are contending with right now. This month we decided to conduct a series of interviews with local experts focused on how to boost mental well-being right now; and, how to process our grief around the complicated nature of loss during Covid-19. Integrative Family Medicine of Asheville’s Health Coach, Ariana Figueroa, sat down virtually Dr. Brent Beam to address these topics.

Dr. Beam has over 15 years’ of experience counseling clients. His work integrates evidence based clinical strategies-to name a few: attachment theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, mindfulness. He specializes in men’s well-being, and supports men through career and professional role transitions, overcoming depression and anxiety, leaving negative habits while pursuing healthy ones, and more.
