How Can I Help You?
Schedule an online nutritional psychiatry consultation with me to explore specialized nutrition strategies that can help improve your mental health or support your clinical mental health practice. Available worldwide.
Please note that my practice is currently full, but I will update this page when new appointments become available.
You can search for a practitioner who uses ketogenic dietary therapies to treat mental health conditions in their psychiatric, medical, nursing, nutrition, counseling, or coaching practice in our international Ketogenic Diets for Mental Health Clinician Directory. This directory is still growing, so if you don't see someone in your area, check back soon.
If you are an existing client (you have already consulted with me at least once before) and you are trying to schedule a follow-up appointment, please send me a secure message through your client portal or email me and I will be happy to schedule you. If you can't locate your login information or my email address, you may reach me via the networking button on my contact page.
If you are a clinician interested in my Ketogenic Diets for Mental Health clinician training program, new classes are beginning soon, so please visit my Training Page for more information.
My philosophy, credentials and experience
I am a Harvard-trained, board-certified psychiatrist with nearly twenty years of clinical experience, including ten years of specialized experience in nutritional psychiatry at Harvard University Health Services, Smith College, the Hallowell Center, and private practice settings. I speak internationally about nutrition science and write about food and the brain for Psychology Today and DietDoctor.com. My areas of expertise include paleo, low-carbohydrate, ketogenic, carnivore and elimination diets, insulin resistance, food sensitivity syndromes, and supplementation of whole foods plant-based diets. I am particularly qualified to be of assistance with matters related to nutrition and mental health.
The most powerful way to change your brain chemistry is through food, because that’s where brain chemicals come from in the first place.

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.
