I am Christina Veselak, owner of Garden Gate Counseling and The Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition, which is now located near Huntington, in West Virginia. While I am licensed in Colorado as a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), in Wayne, West Virginia, I work as a Relapse Prevention and Trauma Recovery Coach and a Mental Health Nutritionist. I also train therapists in advanced counseling skills and mental health nutrition (www.aminoacidtherapy).
I graduated from San Francisco State University in 1983 with an MS in Counseling Psychology. I was licensed in California as a Marriage and Family Therapist in 1985 and have subsequently been licensed in Alaska and Colorado. I am also trained and highly experienced in the field of addiction, EMDR therapy, hypnosis, and somatic psychotherapy through the Sensorimotor Institute. I keep up with the latest developments in the field of psychotherapy and am committed to continuously learning and growing as a psychotherapist, recovery coach, and mental health nutritionist.
I am the founder of the Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition. I train professionals from a variety of backgrounds in Mental Health and Addiction Recovery Nutrition. My courses can be taken through NANP (National Association of Nutritional Professionals) as CEUs or can be taken directly through the Academy. I provide certification in both fundamental and advanced Mental Health Nutrition. Please visit my course page to learn more. (www.aminoacidtherapy.com)I am also a founding member and former Executive Director of The Alliance for Addiction Solutions, a non-profit organization that promotes the use of nutritional and other natural modalities in addiction treatment.
I myself have used all the approaches above in my own healing process. This journey of self-exploration, transformation, spiritual growth, and physical healing has been the most exciting and rewarding of my life and I invite you to join me as we each continue to grow.
