About

As a society we are challenged by an overwhelming amount of expectations and stressors placed on us by the world. Anxiety is very real and many have experienced trauma or have their own struggles with depression. Reaching out for help is an act of courage and humility. Forsythe Wellness takes a Functional Medicine approach, viewing the mind and body as working together. This means looking at every area of a person's life to understand and address the root causes underlying the symptoms. Using a unique person-centered approach for each client, we will focus on impacting long-term change. Therapy takes place in a variety of settings.
I particularly have focused experience on youth suffering from the outcomes of trauma, attachment disorders, anxiety and ADHD. I believe in working with the family to help the parent understand the child's unique communication style and the needs they are trying to express. I also am very confident in helping those who are struggling with life changes.
I believe that every behavior is driven by an emotion, a desire to fulfill a need. I believe we have to be careful not to judge a person, even with the most defiant behavior. We must first seek to understand the needs and hurt that person is experiencing. Reaching out for support is a courageous act, and I believe that at some point, everyone needs guidance.
