Psychiatric & Cognitive Conditions
A New Paradigm for Cognitive, Behavioral, and Emotional Health
When it comes to your mind health, its NOT all in your head!
Functional Psychology is a whole-body, whole-person approach to addressing mind health and cognitive challenges. The complex interconnected factors that influence anxiety, mood, focus, brain fog and inattention requires a care approach as unique as you are.
Integrative & functional psychology looks beyond standard methods of care to address longstanding symptoms. These functional psychological modalities are used to treat these conditions and to explore new the possibilities for healing.
THE INTEGRATIVE CARE APPROACH IS CHARACTERIZED BY:
Diagnosis: LOOKING BEYOND THE OBVIOUS
Mind health professionals traditionally look for symptoms to make diagnoses and treatment plans. Integrative psychology investigates the biology underlying symptoms to gather a more precise, individualized picture of a person’s condition – a standard practice in other medical specialties. Diagnostic tools such as lab work and qEEG brain mapping allow us create a targeted roadmap for the way forward.
Origin: MIND HEALTH GOES BEYOND NEUROTRANSMITTER IMBALANCE
Behavioral & emotional challenges are typically attributed to personal history and/or neurotransmitter imbalance. While these factors are important, they are far from the only things that influence anxiety, mood, and focus. Integrative psychology considers the full range of biological systems and stressors known to affect our brains, from hormones to the microbiome and nutritional deficiencies.
Treatment: BEYOND MEDICATIONS & TALK THERAPY
Integrative psychology offers more avenues for healing by addressing the systemic and environmental imbalances that contribute to body & brain health. Care recommendations may include dietary and lifestyle changes, nutritional supplementation, and neurofeedback. These interventions not only aim to resolve symptoms in the present, but also to promote long-term healing and resilience.
