    It's In Your Genetics & No More "Free" Breeding Sistuh's, OK?

    in Relationships

    Greetings 9Mind Sacred Sistuhs, peace, protection, prosperity and most of all wisdom be upon we all and those we love. This evening we will be discussing genes and if certain pathologies, thoughts, habits, addictions and or mental and physical diseases are passed on thru our genetics from our parents? Is there a Biblical basis for our behavior and what we see going on around us? I will also be admonishing all ebony, chocolate aka Blk females to (not) do any more FREE BREEDING. Free breeding is something that SLAVES do and we need to stop supporting our own enslavement and those of our children. 

    All of us know by now that babies and children aren't FREE. So my question to all Sistuhs and women, why should OUR WOMBS be FREE? Especially to the lowest of non ALPHA males who prowl the communities and neighborhoods as nothing more than sexual PREDATORS which is the most dangerous predator on the earth? More dangerous than any four legger predator that the Aryan white predator felt like he needed to kill off so him and his kind could be the only reigning predator on this planet. See a man is not determined based off what he LOOKS like. Instead he/they are determined by what they THINK like. 

    Surely we have been "DESTROYED" for lack of knowledge. So let's get it innn...

    Behavioral Health Compliance: An Interview with Theresa Wray, LMFT

    in Psychology

    Today we interview business owner, clinician, and consultant Theresa Wray of Synergy Consulting Services. A rare and exciting connection for us because of one major factor: Theresa loves finding needles in haystacks. In fact, she excels at it. All of the necessary yet hair pulling work that counselors and Behavioral Health organizations dread to do are actually fun for Theresa.  Things like reading your Managed Care contracts, auditing your charts, reviewing compliance plans, and verifying state regulations.  Enjoy getting to know her during our interview on Mental Health News Radio.  More importantly, enjoy getting to know what she can do for your Behavioral Health organization.

    What made you start your consulting firm?

    Why the name ‘Synergy’? What exactly does that mean?

    You “officially” launched earlier this year. How are things going?

    So who do you typically work with?

    How so? What types of services do you provide?

    Managed care, particularly around Compliance/Fraud, Waste, and Abuse, documentation, state-specific regulations, as well around some of the business-related issues that we weren’t taught about in grad school. For example, NPIs, CAQH, taxonomy codes, coming on board with managed care organizations, developing paperwork. 

    What would you say sets you and Synergy apart from many of the other coaches and consultants who are available to providers?

    What advice would you give to someone considering opening their own practice or expanding their services?

    How can people find out more about working with you?
