Mental Health and Emotional Wellness

Natural, patient-centred solutions to mental health conditions that honour your whole person: body, mind and spirit.

Mental and emotional wellness is the cornerstone of good health and our ability to live a happy and fulfilling life. When we are mentally well, we feel motivated, regard ourselves with feelings of self love and positivity, have loving and connected relationships, engage in fulfilling work and manage our stress in healthy ways.

Our minds and bodies are complex and interconnected; healing mental health conditions is more complicated than taking a pill every day. In order to successfully heal the mind and body, we must uncover the root causes and hidden imbalances of our symptoms and treat using the latest in science-based therapies that restore us to balance and optimal mental health.

When working with patients, I begin with a thorough whole-body 90-minute intake and then use a blend of functional medicine and my compassionate and non-judgmental counselling style to help heal the mental and emotional aspects of my patient’s health. Aspects of treatment include:

 

Functional medicine: Mental illness is a symptom, not a disease! Functional medicine looks at the patterns underlying symptoms, restoring the body’s physiology to a state of balance.

Gut-healing: Using the gut-brain connection to impact mood. The gut is often the root cause of mental illness.

Nutrition: Ensuring that the proper building blocks are in place for optimal mental and emotional wellness.

Hormone balance: Balancing hormones, especially female hormones, estrogen and progesterone, which has a profound impact on mood as well as the menstrual cycle and fertility.

Stress management and adrenal fatigue: Addressing burnout, which is often at the root of depressive symptoms.

Narrative Therapy: Working with the therapeutic relationship to uncover hidden psychological aspects of mental health issues and correct them using a compassionate, patient-centred approach.

Core Beliefs: Uncovering the beliefs we tell about ourselves, which interfere with our thoughts, feelings and behaviours and can negatively impact our mood and long-term well-being.
