“Thanks for a great seminar… It was truly the best professional development seminar I’ve been to in a few years. It was strong because you not only presented a ton of information quickly and thoroughly, you are also interesting speakers…”
“You brought the science through a wide-angle lens while also zooming in on what’s most important to take back to our clinical work.”
“I’ve immediately incorporated some of the material into my practice. I spoke with a long term client of mine (chronic anxiety, depression, personality disorder) who seems to always be dieting. I made a few suggestions for types of foods she might add to her diet and it really helped her to think about what she COULD eat rather than what she “shouldn’t.” I also spoke to a newer client (panic disorder, trauma survivor) who is a vegetarian about the choline findings you shared. She was glad to have some good news coming from tofu!”

Why Nutritional Psychiatry?
In this module we’ll cover the history and growth of nutritional psychiatry, as well as the various ways professionals all over the world are integrating nutritional psychiatry into their practices.
The History of Food Change
In this module, we’ll explore neuroplasticity, epigenetics, BDNF and the latest scientific research on food and brain health. The science of brain nutrition has rapidly evolved and the evidence is very clear. What we eat directly impacts our brain, and our mental health, and diet remains the most powerful modifiable risk factor for depression. This module walks you through the latest science and the proof that your food choices really do matter for brain health and depression.
The Nutrients That Beat Depression: Natural Anti-Depression Foods
Certain nutrients are more clearly involved in depression. If your brain cells are missing zinc or vitamin B12, they are missing key ingredients needed to beat depression. Lower intakes of these nutrients are highly correlated with depression, and a deficiency simply causes low energy, irritability, brain fog, and a lower mood. This module covers the core nutrients people are most commonly lacking, reviews why they are key for brain health, AND identifies the foods that are the best brain supplements.

The Therapuetic Relationship

In this module we’ll cover the basics of alliance building, motivational interviewing, harm reduction, goal setting and other components of creating a successful therapuetic relationship.

What Patients are saying:
“I’ve stopped looking at food as something to deprive myself of (to reduce calories) and instead see it as something that fuels not just my body, but also can rebuild my brain.”
