Certified Mental Health & Nutrition Clinical Specialist (CMNCS)

Clinicians are told that the gut is our 2nd brain, holding keys to our overall wellness, contributing o inflammation throughout the body, and significantly impacting our energy and mood. However, the brain and gut are still treated completely separately in our medical system, and mental health professionals are not traditionally educated further on how we can use what we know about the gut to help client's overcome concerns. 

Ultimately, that was not good enough for me. If there is a part of the body that has a significant impact on people's mental health - I wanted to know a lot more about it. So I did. After completing coursework covering Integrative Medicine, Functional Health, Nutrition Psychology, and Mental Health Nutrition- I became fully certified as a Certified Mental Health & Nutrition Clinical Specialist (CMNCS).

Anxiety stems from a part of our brain (our amygdala) that doesn't process language

Fight/ Flight/ Freeze signals are meant to protect us, but our brain can send them too often under certain circumstances (such as when we experience a stress buildup or have been trough a traumatic event)

We can calm this part of our brain with specific coping skills + tools and allow the calming side of our nervous system to re-activate 

This part of the brain can learn- We can teach it to be less activated, to calm faster, and that we are in control

How I can help:

First of all, I get it. I'm no stranger to anxiety and know how terrible it feels!

 

Not only have I taken extra courses and training to understand exactly what is happening in our brain when we are experiencing anxiety, but I've spent years learning the most effective way to teach this information to others through my work. I'm now a fully Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP) and know that you don't have to feel overrun by your anxiety anymore.

I utilize multiple approaches to help clients address their anxiety symptoms:
