A colorful sleep
Protecting me from nightmares
In my flower bed
— CIRO ORTIZ, EMOTIONAL ADVICE KID

Make Your Medicine is a collaborative project that seeks to explore our innermost feelings and help develop mindfulness and empathy. It’s an explorative interface between ourselves and the ability we have to grow, to understand and address our emotional/psychological trauma, and to improve our lives. It’s more than mental health awareness. This project was born out of the curiosity of human emotion, psychology, spirit, and conscious experience.

MYM pulls from medical, philosophical and spiritual exploration to provide a starting point from which to begin a journey of inner curiosity. Check out the inspiration of MYM.

Adam accepts private clients who want to engage in inner reflection and exploration, who seek mental health support, and may not know how to begin. Contact Adam for questions or collaborations below.
