Health Coach Donna Miller says her children have always inspired her to better herself, but it wasn't until 2012 that their influence led her to a new career. In December of 2011, her youngest daughter was diagnosed with lymphoma at the age of 19. While helping her daughter battle, and eventually, defeat the disease, Donna began learning how nutrition and holistic lifestyle changes can not only bolster the recovery process, but lead to a healthier life. Her discoveries inspired her to enroll in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and complete her training as a health coach. Through nutritional guidance and life-coaching techniques, she helps her clients restore their bodies' natural balance, improve their mood, and increase their energy without grinding coffee beans into everything they eat.

Talking to a therapist about your problems can be a welcome release, but at the Center for Integrated Therapies, the experts believe they offer something beyond talk. To achieve real results for its patients, the center harnesses a number of cutting-edge techniques. One such tool is neurofeedback, a method designed to help the mind learn to adjust its own brainwaves and ease issues ranging from insomnia to ADHD. In hypnotherapy sessions, clients slip into a trance-like state where their enhanced creativity, focus, and desire to cluck like a chicken can help therapists hone in on psychological problems. The center also offers intensive programs for common problems, such as substance abuse, the issues that arise with adoption, and marital conflicts.
