Certified Brain Health Coach
I have been a Registered Nurse for 24 years caring for patients across a variety of specialties and I can truly say I love nursing! There is a great need for better mental health and fulfilling this need will have significant impacts on quality of life. By taking care of ourselves, especially our brains, we can greatly improve not only our lives but also the lives of those around us!
Mental health struggles are a great common denominator across all walks of life often seen in many different forms which may not always be easy to identify. For example, my youngest son who is now 12 years old has had struggles with ADD and behavior. After toiling to manage his symptoms for years we decided to have him go the the Amazing Amen clinic.
To our surprise, after thorough testing and a SPECT scan we were surprised to learn his diagnosis was much different than what we had ever been told! After really learning more about the different types of ADD and high functioning autism a lightbulb went off and BAM! Yes his behavior made sense, but most importantly we COULD help him by knowing more about the specifics of how his Brain works.
This wonderful personal experience impassioned me to become a Brain Health Coach through the Amen Clinic's Certification training as well as work alongside Dr. Stephanie Peterson at her holistic, direct patient care clinic- Avant Total Health.
Today I am thrilled to say that BrainThrive and Avant Total Health work closely with Amen clinic to provide assessments and medical care.
