Are you the parent of a child diagnosed with autism, ADHD or a mood disorder? Or maybe your child doesn’t have a formal diagnosis but struggles with similar cognitive, mood or behavioral symptoms?
You might have found your way here because you feel like you’ve exhausted the standard therapies available. You may have watched your child struggle with the symptoms of autism, ADHD or a mood disorder for years, and you’re disappointed by the lack of progress you’ve seen as a result of conventional care.
Perhaps your child has some puzzling physical health symptoms as well in addition to mood swings, learning, or behavioral issues. These symptoms may be part of an official diagnosis, but not necessarily. You may have found that while some therapeutic approaches provide modest relief, nothing produces consistent or lasting improvements.
As a result, you’re frustrated, overwhelmed, and wondering why available treatments and therapies are minimally effective at best. After all, you’ve done “all the things” and yet you’re not seeing results.
I can help.
My name is Julie, and I’m a nutritionist offering science-based, individualized nutrition therapy that can help your child feel, learn, and live better.
My specialty is nutritional therapy to support brain functioning, mood, and mental health. I especially enjoy working with families of children with autism, ADD & ADHD, anxiety and mood disorders.
While I’ve worked with clients of all ages on a variety of health goals, helping families of children like mine is what got me into this field.
I bring over a decade of personal experience and in-depth research into the nutritional support I provide to my clients. You can learn more about my background and credentials on my About page.
The “Nx” in NxWellness stands for Nutrition + Neuroscience.
Nutrition is the branch of science relating to the food and nutrients necessary for optimal health.
Neuroscience is the branch of science that deals with learning, behavior and brain functioning.
I pair nutrition with insights from neuroscience to provide effective nutritional therapy for optimal physical and mental wellness.
Nutrition is not only critical for our physical health, but it also provides the building blocks that our brains need to function optimally. Without proper nutrition, cognition, mood, and behavior all deteriorate. Chronic suboptimal nutrition can result in long-term physical, mental, and behavioral health issues.
My mission is to help my clients feel, learn, and live better through individualized nutritional support.
If you’re the parent of a child with autism, ADHD or a mood disorder, nutrition might be the “missing piece” in your child’s wellness puzzle.
Despite lots of scientific evidence, many doctors dismiss the importance of nutrition – especially when it comes to neurodevelopmental and mental health.
Research underscores the critical role of nutrition in all aspects of health. And yet, many (if not most) doctors and medical practitioners do not include nutritional guidance in their treatment plans.
Many chronic diseases have been directly linked to poor nutrition. And recent research confirms that nutrition is a critical factor in brain function and mental health as well.
Customized nutritional protocols can significantly improve both physical and mental health. Our bodies and brains have an amazing capacity to heal when given the right nutritional support.
