These one-hour sessions are ideal for anyone interested in learning more about nutritional strategies with the potential to improve mental health. It’s also a great option for family members interested in understanding the risks and benefits of nutrition therapy for loved ones living with mental health challenges. While you’re welcome to ask me anything, examples of common topics include ketogenic diets and psychiatric disorders, interactions between special diets and psychiatric medications, questions about where the current research stands in the fields of nutrition and metabolic psychiatry, laboratory testing for insulin resistance and nutrient deficiencies, and how to optimize any diet to support better mental health. I have clinical expertise and scientific knowledge about a wide variety of special diets including ketogenic diets, paleo diets, plant-based diets, Mediterranean diets, elimination diets, simple low-carbohydrate diets, and carnivore diets.

I understand that private sessions are not affordable for many people. Over the years I have worked hard to research and produce numerous free written and video resources for the general public and for my fellow clinicians. I created all of these materials independently, without any industry funding. Other than a few affiliate links on my website and a handful of kind reader donations, which together cover less than 5% of my costs, my body of work is entirely self-funded.
Here is a short list of selected resources you may find helpful.Plenty more are available elsewhere on this site and on my Psychology Today homepage.
