Katherine believes in targeting mental health solutions through talk therapy and scientific analysis.

As part of her holistic approach, she offers neuroendocrine testing and analysis to clients looking for answers.  The nervous and endocrine systems are complex, with multiple neurotransmitters and hormones affecting your health, mental illness/wellness, and daily life.

Without determining the level of neurotransmitters in the body, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and neuroscientists are relying on the honesty and/or self-awareness of their patients to provide context clues which lead to eventual diagnosis.

Neuroendocrine testing can provide key insights into body function, neurotransmitter over/under production, and can lead to appropriate referrals for psychiatric intervention, medication, supplementation, or nutritional intervention.

Katherine offers testing for the following neuroendocrine markers, as well as a comprehensive follow-up meeting to offer psychoeducation and referrals for appropriate intervention.  She also can incorporate this testing as part of a longitudinal therapeutic relationship with new and/or existing clients.

Markers tested:

Serotonin - Neurotransmitter

GABA - Neurotransmitter

Epinephrine  - Neurotransmitter

Norepinephrine  - Neurotransmitter

PEA - Neurotransmitter

Glutamate  - Neurotransmitter

Cortisol - Adrenal Hormone

Testosterone - Sex Hormone

Estrone - Sex Hormone

Estradiol - Sex Hormone

Progesterone - Sex Hormone

Estriol - Sex Hormone

DHEA - Adrenal Hormone

With appropriate psychoeducation, Katherine hopes to increase understand of the interconnectedness of neurohormonal function and its relationship to health.
