What Will You Learn?

Topic #1
Making Space for Change

The truth is that in order to heal you’re going to need to commit some time. I can hear it all the way from here…”Jennifer, I don’t have any time!” Trust me, together we’ll find some. We’ll clear you time, your environment, and your mind and set up boundaries to protect the space you’ve created.

Topic #2
The Inflammation – Depression Connection 

The research shows that depression is an inflammatory condition. You’ll learn about what inflammation is, where is comes from and we’ll work together to implement strategies to reduce it.

Topic #3
Depression Reducing Activities 

There’s loads of research out there on different things you can do to reduce depression. How are you supposed to know which ones to do? I’ll give you a few that everyone should do (because the research is just that good), give you the resources you need to decide what other strategies you’d like to try, and hold you accountable to your goals.

Topic #4
Creating a Mental Health Routine

This topics brings it all together. You’ll have learned and tried lots of stuff. We can’t expect to do it all every single day, but we need to do something each day to keep it rolling. We’ll work together to create a routine that fits into your lifestyle and is something that make you feel amazing!

I’m Jennifer!

A few years ago, I was in a pretty dark place. It made no sense to me. I had a great job, a beautiful home, a loving partner, great friends, a supportive family, good health, but yet I felt miserable. 

I remember sitting in “the chair” (where I spent way too much time at this stage of my life) when suddenly it dawned on me: I need to start taking some of my own medicine. 

You see, I was working as a Recreation Therapist and telling my clients all these things they needed to do, but I wasn’t doing any of them. No wonder I felt like crap! I started taking some steps to make myself feel better, and my mood definitely improved. 

But then it seemed that all the physical activity, meditation, and nature exposure in the world couldn’t get me to where I wanted to be. I felt better, but still not 100%. I sought help from a functional medicine physician and got more pieces of the puzzle put together. 

Now, several years later, I’m in control of my depression and anxiety. Sometimes it tries to sneak back in, but I have the skills and confidence to get back on track before I get too deep.

I’ve since added education in Functional Medicine to my arsenal so that I can support people in all areas of health (rather than just recreation). With my experience and training, I know I can help you rise above your depression and anxiety so you too can feel like yourself again!

If You’re Doing the Same Thing Over and Over and Expecting Different Results…

…It’s time to try something different.

You’re right, it’s hard. There’s an overwhelming amount of mental health information out there, and it always seems to be changing. How are you supposed to know what you need to beat this thing?

Let me help you to take the confusion out of taking care of your mind and body. I will help you understand why healing can be so hard, and support you in the process so you can get back to being the amazing person you are.
