I provide training and supervision of interns and clinicians wishing to integrate nutritional awareness into their practices (Click here to learn more about amino acid therapy )I am also offering in-services and short, focused classes in advanced counseling skills for therapists. CEUs are available for these training.
In addition, I present at national conferences and to general audiences on topics ranging from Nutrition and Brain Chemistry, Hypoglycemia, Adrenal Fatigue in Addicted Families, and Integrating Nutritional Strategies into a Private Practice. I currently teach two online certification courses in biochemical and nutritional approaches to mental health and addiction recovery for The Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition. CEUs are available for these as well.
I was a BIG coffee drinker – I would drink up to 4-8 cups of coffee every morning. I began to become almost neurotic about having my coffee prepared before the morning so that I could drink it right when I woke up in the morning. I suffer from anxiety and I was feeling like the coffee was not only making me more jittery and anxious but also dehydrated and sometimes even tired (probably from the dehydration). I am an avid hot yoga practitioner and hydration is very important for my practice. I started taking GABA (500mg) at night and L-Tyrosine (750mg) in the morning on a regular basis. Suddenly, to my surprise, I stopped craving coffee! I am now clean from coffee for about two months and my overall health has improved greatly. I do drink tea with very small amounts of caffeine once in a while, however, when I wake in the morning I don’t feel like I need the boost from caffeine. It has been a really positive change for my mental and physical health!
