As a clinician, it can be intimidating when clients start asking you for guidance on how to use nutrition to improve their well-being. Suddenly you find yourself thinking, “I’m not a nutritional therapist, I’m not trained for that!” And, “What am I allowed to do, ethically?”
...but it doesn’t have to be hard or complicated.
That’s why I created this exclusive, online certification retreat designed to be your practical guide through the complex relationship between what we eat and the way we think, feel, and interact with the world.
Join me today and I’ll provide you safe, effective, and affordable evidence-based holistic approaches that will help your clients achieve optimal health and wellness while preventing and treating common mental health problems.
From anxiety and depression to schizophrenia and PTSD, you’ll discover how nutritional and integrative medicine can work alongside and even replace medications to alleviate symptoms and support mental health.
Over five days, this online retreat will be both content rich and experiential. Each day I’ll lead you through a demo to get you out of your chair - get ready for yoga, cooking in the kitchen, relaxation exercises and more!
You’ll end this retreat fully prepared to start providing your clients personalized care from an array of scientific disciplines proven to improve their mood and mental health as a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider (CMHIMP).
I look forward to seeing you online in November!
Bonus! Once you complete this training, you'll qualify to immediately become a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider (CMHIMP)*
