Do You Sometimes Experience…
Depression that drags you down?
Or anxiety that spins you out?
Or ADD/ADHD that hijacks your focus?
Or you’re dealing with any number of other “mental health issues,” from substance cravings to PTSD, and medication hasn’t quite done the trick?
Or insomnia that haunts your nights?
Or racing thoughts that have you perseverating and counting and calculating?
Or you’d prefer to avoid medication altogether, but you have no idea how to find a natural route to healing?
You’re a helping professional who sees that some of your client’s symptoms don’t change despite your best attempts. You believe in a holistic approach to treatment, and you prefer the idea of identifying and healing the root cause rather than “band-aiding” symptoms with a pill. You’d like to have access to resources on how to treat depression, anxiety, and other mental health symptoms naturally but you don’t know where to start.
We live in an out-of-balance world. Every day, many of us experience stress, pollution, oppression, disconnection from nature, an industrialized and depleted food system, and medications that sometimes do more harm than help. The result? Poor digestion, poor nutrition, and depleted neurotransmitters: a recipe for mental health issues that can’t be solved with talk therapy, or with a prescription. It’s a holistic, multi-dimensional problem that requires a holistic, multi-dimensional solution.
“I found Stephanie’s class incredibly helpful. This course not only met my expectations but exceeded them in the amount of really important knowledge that I can now incorporate into my practice. I would highly recommend this course. Stephanie is such an amazing teacher. She has such an easygoing, conversational approach while also packing the course with a lot of crucial information. I hope you take this course and learn as much as I did.”
– Leah Kaplan, psychotherapist, former student
That’s why I created the five module online course, “Supplements and Nutrition for Mental Health”!
“I don’t think I’ve felt this good since I was in my 20’s (client is in her late 50s). I feel so much more at peace, and so much better, and it’s so hard to believe that it can happen so fast. In many ways, I feel like I have my life back. Thank you so, so much.”
– KW, former client, after three individual client sessions of Mental Health Nutrition
What if I told you that after taking this course, you could have vibrant energy and a mood that fluctuates with the waves of life, but rarely spikes into anxiety or crashes into depression? What if I told you that it’s very possible that you would no longer have sugar cravings and urges to binge – eating purely out of choice, the need to fuel, and sometimes, just for fun? You might also lose interest in drugs and alcohol because life itself is feeling so much better. Other positive side effects may include a clear, calm mind, sharp focus, resilience, and a sense of peace, without fear or hyper-vigilance. Bonuses may include great poop, no more bloating, gas, and constipation, clear skin, and no more physical pain.
These results are typical for the hundreds of clients I’ve seen for supplements and nutrition for mental health.
Would you like to have them too?
Would you like to be able to facilitate them for others?
In this five-module course “Supplements and Nutrition for Mental Health,” you will receive pre-recorded videos for each module and handouts. The course is self-paced and you will have access to a custom course portal.

Neurotransmitter Support: Supplement Superpowers

Find out how to determine which neurotransmitters you (or your clients) might be low in, and how to balance brain chemicals naturally using powerful supplements.
You’ll be gifted a handy chart to use for assessing possible neurotransmitter depletion that you (or your clients) can immediately put to use!
