Cutting Edge Integrative Treatments for Mental Health

Lynette Bassman, Ph.D.

Mental health concerns are increasingly being treated by integrative practitioners using nutrition, supplements, detoxification, epigenetics, and other approaches.  Some of these treatments are well validated, and others show very promising anecdotal evidence.  We will review some of the possibilities, including case studies.  Implications for psychologists will be discussed.

Dr. Bassman is a graduate of New York's Institute of Integrative Nutrition with a certificate in Health Coaching.  Dr. Bassman currently is a professor at Alliant University and is a Licensed Psychologist with her own Private Practice in Fresno, CA.
