Dr. Paul Meier is the founder of Meier Clinics, a multi-state outpatient mental health organization, a best-selling author and practicing psychiatrist.

Dr. Lisa Day has over 20 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families struggling with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, behavioral/medical issues, addiction, relationship struggles, interpersonal boundary concerns, work/life balance, major life adjustments, divorce recovery, crisis, grief, forgiveness, and loss. She has worked in a variety of settings, including working with adolescents and adults in both inpatient and outpatient programs as well as working as a coach in assisting individuals to identify and reach their full potential in their social and occupational endeavors.

Dr. Day is an expert in assisting clients to develop healthy boundaries, integrating healthy communication skills, and utilizing mindfulness in applying healthy coping skills to deal with the stressors contributing to their challenge. Dr. Day works with eating disorders ranging from anorexia and bulimia to compulsive overeating.

In addition to being a licensed psychologist, Dr. Day is also a licensed registered nurse. This allows her to treat the whole person and understand how various stressors affect people both physically and emotionally.

Grant Davis is new to the show and is a psychiatric nurse practitioner. Grant provides psychiatric medication management for children, adolescents, and adults. His approach to medication management is client focused and collaborative based on information shared between clinician and the client. Grant believes that a strong therapeutic relationship between clinician and patient is vital for positive mental health outcomes.
