Nutritional Counseling For Mental Health
Your gut is connected to your brain. With increasing scientific evidence pointing to the effects of our food choices and eating habits as having profound impacts on our mood and wellbeing, it's time to do a check-up. We offer individualized nutritional counseling with a holistic approach for better mental, emotional, and physical health.
Our specialist is knowledgeable about what the best food is to eat for brain function, anxiety, and depression, as well as how to address leaky gut syndrome, brain fog, and other food reactions.
She is also very skilled at tackling unconscious eating habits and has successfully helped many patients overcome their disordered eating by changing their relationship with food to be more satisfying. Combined with our individualized psychotherapy, you can learn powerful skills to tackle strongly held food beliefs, body image issues, and unhealthy habits.
We also offer perinatal nutritional consultation for pregnancy nutritional planning, pregnancy nutritional support, and breastfeeding nutritional support. With every nutritional recommendation, we have your mental health in mind as the priority. Psych nutrition counseling is offered to all patients in the New York tristate area and Florida.
