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.
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:
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.
