Consultation & Coaching
INTEGRATIVE PSYCHIATRIC CONSULTATIONS
Henry Emmons, MD
Our goal is to help you restore the elements of a resilient life. That begins with a clear understanding of where you are now, and what has led you to this moment. As an integrative psychiatrist, I offer consultations that go well beyond the usual psychiatric assessment. Working together, we will discover the most likely sources of imbalance or depletion, and create a comprehensive plan for restoring mood and regaining balance. Recommendations may include an opinion as to whether medications are helping or making things worse, and expert advice regarding use of nutritional supplements and other natural therapies. I can also offer a few follow up sessions. Optional next steps may include nutritional or resilience coaching offered by one of our experienced trainers, or referral for ongoing care to one of the nurse clinicians who work in our practice.
INTEGRATIVE NUTRITION CONSULTATION
Carolyn Denton, MA, LN
Integrative nutrition focuses on the relationship between the food we eat and how the body functions. Integrative nutrition attempts to identify multiple, underlying influences such as inflammation, hormonal imbalances, faulty digestion, poor sleep and the balance of energy that often sabotage health.
By assessing personal and family health history and current nutrient intake as they relate to these influencing saboteurs, Carolyn can make recommendations tailored to your specific needs. Interventions go well beyond calories and fat and are aimed at informed dietary choices to promote balance and healing.
Whether your goal is to address a specific health issue or simply establish healthy eating patterns nutritional coaching can give you a new view.
RESILIENCE COACHING or RESILIENCE-BASED PSYCHOTHERAPY
Susan Bourgerie, MA, LP and Sandra Kacher, LICSW
Whether you are just beginning on your path to resilience or have traveled with us along some of the way via Pathways to Resilience, or reading The Chemistry of Joy, The Chemistry of Calm, or The Chemistry of Joy Workbook, we are here to support you in your exploration.
Although we believe that resilience is our nature, we also know that for many of us, conditions along the way have obscured our innate resilience and created hurdles to our ability to access, restore and enjoy it.
Working with one of us, you can create a plan that identifies and addresses your particular vulnerabilities, whether they be biochemical, nutritional, psychological or spiritual. Of course, we will also help you to identify “what’s not wrong” and so build on resilience skills that are already present. And we are available in an ongoing way to support you in following through.
We offer services in person, or via telephone, video-conferencing, and email. If you are interested in addressing these issues in psychotherapy as opposed to coaching you may contact either of us directly. Your work may then be covered by your insurance.
