In Touch Counseling Services

Psychological Counseling & Wellness Center located in Vancouver, WA

Unlike traditional approaches to mental health, which typically do not look at the connection between a person's diet and their mind, Janelle Adams, MA, LMFT, ATR, and the team at In Touch Counseling Services understand that food is strongly linked to brain health, emotional and physical well-being.



 What are Nutrition Services?

Nutrition is an important part of the treatment philosophy at In Touch Counseling services, so much so,  that nutrition information is gathered in all of our intital evaluations, yet we also offer comprehensive, one-on-one nutrition consultations, facilitated by trained providers. A nutrition plan tailored to your brain can be very beneficial, if for instance:

  • You would you like to find natural ways to feel better with less (or even NO) medication.
  • It is hard for you to lose weight—no matter what you try.
  • You are interested in learning which foods can optimize your brain function as well as improve your mood and behavior. 

When you eat better, your brain and body work better

Our brain and body rely on the food you eat to provide it with the fuel it needs. When you’re not eating a balanced diet with the right nutrient levels, your brain and body struggle to work the way they should.
Most people have experienced the headache, upset stomach, or energy crash that often follows bad food choices. But many forget that in the same way nutrition affects your physical well-being, it also plays a key role in the onset as well as severity and duration of mental health symptoms.  

Core Symptoms of unhealthy eating habits:

  • Brain fog
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Joint pain
  • Tissue & muscle damage
  • Cravings
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Bloating
  • Skin conditions
  • Irregular sleep
  • Irregular periods
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Hormone fluctuations
  • Mood swings
  • Energy crashes
  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • PMS (mood swings, cramps, tender breast, irritability)
  • And so much more!

WHAT IS YOUR Nutrition IQ?

 What should I expect? 

At In Touch Counseling Services, we know that food can be used as medicine or it can be poison.

 During a hour long initial nutrition evaluation, our trained provider,  an overall health assessment is conducted to understand current nutrition status and overall health. Factors such as habits and practices, genetic make-up, and both internal and external environments are evaluated by your provider to create a dietary plan that includes foods that supercharge your brain function and health status, as well as decrease the daily symptoms that prevent you from living life well. 

In  follow-up appointments, your provider will go over the individualized plan based on your metabolism, activity needs and most importantly your lifestyle that has been designed to accopmlish your goals.

In addition, follow up appointments are used to work along with you to develop strategies that are effective in implementing the plan, goal setting and and tracking and accountability sessions.
