Words from Happy Clients!
"Mental health affects everything, how we think, feel, and act, and determines how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Love Your Mental Health's Founder Kim Pita inspires us to find ways to use our creativity to practice mindfulness and self-care in our everyday lives. She motivates us to love our mental health rather than fear it by sharing her own story."
Mary Crean, Marketing Director, Nassau Financial Group
"No matter what project she undertakes, Kim does so with high energy and enthusiasm. She provided us with a professional perspective on how to ramp up our social media marketing to showcase our culture. She easily connects with both employees and customers through meaningful conversations and dialogue, which provides us with invaluable insight in our company evolution.”
Jason Howey, President, Okay Industries
