Description

We have all had clients who come into the office in a depressed or anxious state, and yet they cannot identify just what is bothering them. Children are brought in with symptoms of ADHD, clients with addictions struggle to gain control of themselves, and others suffer with physical complaints in addition to mental health issues. It’s frustrating when traditional talk therapy is not quite enough to break through and it feels like something else is needed to meet your treatment goals.

That missing piece you’re looking for? It’s here – the mind-body connection.

Kristen Allott is a naturopathic physician specializing in alternative and nutritional approaches to mental health disorders, and she is here to help you bring this missing piece to your clients.

Imagine an increase in your client’s energy and mental clarity, allowing them to be more engaged in the therapeutic process. Simplify sessions when you readily have dozens of effective, simple strategies at your fingertips that enhance and complement your current treatment interventions. Feel your confidence improve when you identify nutritional deficiencies that contribute to anxiety, anger, depression, PTSD or ADHD.

Don’t risk missing out on this key piece of treatment – sign up today to improve outcomes for your clients!
