Depression and Anxiety Management

Treatment methods that rely on trusted holistic health principles, including mindfulness, natural supplements, exercise, and more. ​

Depression and anxiety can drag us down, preventing us from living our lives to the fullest. Pharmaceuticals used to treat mental health conditions can come with a host of unwanted side effects and can cause withdrawal symptoms. They may even have limited effectiveness, especially if the condition is being caused by complex external and internal factors.

My treatment methods rely on trusted holistic health principles, including mindfulness, natural supplements, exercise, and more. My services can be customized to meet your needs, no matter how long you’ve been dealing with depression and anxiety.

The Link Between Inflammation and Depression

The Link Between Inflammation and Depression


The human immune system becomes inflamed when it is reacting to an actual or perceived threat or injury. However, there are many other potential causes of inflammation, including stress.

Stress prompts the body to produce cortisol, which improves your body’s blood sugar to allow you to fight perceived threats. Patients with higher levels of inflammatory markers, including those caused by cortisol production, may be more resistant to traditional antidepressants. This increases the need for holistic, natural approaches to mental health treatment.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Other Supplements

Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Other Supplements


Your brain needs a variety of substances to function properly and produce the right hormones to manage your mood. Omega-3 fatty acids are considered to be a potential breakthrough in mental health treatment because of their ability to make brain cell membranes more fluid. This can allow serotonin and other neurotransmitters to move more freely and boost mood.

Other supplements and natural herbs may be able to boost your mood as well. Herbs such as saffron and minerals, including zinc have been shown to reduce depression symptoms in many users, and chamomile and lavender can help with anxiety. My services include a personalized walkthrough of the best supplement and herb options for you.

​Eating Healthier


Managing mental health also requires careful consideration of dietary needs. Refined carbohydrates and grains can cause glycemic fluctuations that exacerbate anxiety and depression. 

My services can include coaching on nutritional needs and better eating habits. There is no one-size-fits-all dietary solution, so I can help you determine a diet that is realistic and works for your lifestyle.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


Many cases of anxiety and depression can also be tied to stressors in our past and present. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of therapy that focuses on recognizing and countering unhelpful ways of thinking and harmful habits.

I am trained in CBT techniques and can help you learn how to apply them to your own life. By learning healthy coping mechanisms, you can keep your life moving with fewer mental health symptoms.

Meditation and Mindfulness


Meditation is simple but is still a skill that must be learned. It relies upon the user to enter a state of calm and avoid outside stressors for a while, giving the body and mind a chance to recover.

Because of the long-term nature of stress, entering a true meditative state requires training and practice. I teach meditative techniques that can help manage day-to-day stress and minimize anxiety and depression symptoms.

I also teach mindfulness, which can be used anytime to help you recenter yourself when dealing with depression or anxious thoughts. By practicing this technique, you can take steps toward improving your mental health without medication.

Yoga and Exercise


The link between exercise and mental health is well-established, and I encourage patients to develop a routine that works for them. When used in conjunction with mindfulness and other techniques, exercise can significantly improve mood by boosting serotonin levels

Yoga can also have significant benefits for mental health. It boosts serotonin and is a generally relaxing form of exercise. Anyone of any fitness level can learn basic yoga poses or chair yoga techniques.

As a trained yoga instructor, I can walk you through the right poses and routines for mental health benefits. We can also design a routine that improves your flexibility and core strength, allowing you to boost your physical health.
