Vonda Kay Schaefer, MA, MFT, NNTS, Marriage & Family Therapist in Walnut Creek
By combining Nutrition/Neurotransmitter balancing with Psychotherapy my approach is a perfect combination for those struggling with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, weight loss, substance abuse and ADD. Supporting brain chemistry while doing therapy makes therapy a solution rather than a band-aid. I use an integrative approach with clients rather than a tunnel-vision approach. If our body and brain are not healthy, our relationships cannot be either.
With a degree in Nutrition, a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology, and a certification in Neuronutrient therapy, I am able to explore and encourage biological connections and symptom-relief through healthy solutions. My work is to create sustainable, healthy, and non-addictive solutions to psychological issues.
My additional experience includes: work as a Clinical Supervisor, supervising peers as well as interns, authoring a book entitled "Counseling Youth: 101 Answers", and teaching at a local community college.
