Depression Anxiety Trauma and Sleep

There is solid evidence that prescription medications are, more often than not, weak factors in helping people with depression, anxiety, sleep and other mood disorders. At the same time, we are coming to understand that addressing hormones, gut bacteria, inflammation, nutrition, toxins, exercise and past traumas can have a powerful effect.

We use a variety of diagnostic tests to help us identify which factors are contributing to a disturbance of function of the nervous system and the other physiological but closely related systems that contribute to your symptoms. Understanding why you are sad, distracted, anxious, fatigued or prone to anger is the first and most important step in helping you become well.

We have a team of expert practitioners who will support your recovery with a holistic approach to restoring normalcy to your diet, exercise, toxin exposure, sleep, and stress resilience. We also use supplements to target metabolic balance that supports your work in these five pillars of health.

Trauma is very often a major component in the chronic stress reactivity that plays havoc with emotional and mental health.  In his 20 years of work treating patients with chronic illnesses that don’t respond well to mainstream approaches, Dr. Sharp has found that most if not all of his chronically unwell patients have trauma in their past.  In his experience, the illness can’t be healed without addressing unresolved trauma.  His interest and concern led him to training in the practice of Somatic Experiencing (SE).  Learn more about Somatic Experiencing here
