Testing and Neuroscience
Where mental health meets brain science
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.
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.
