Julie Hayes-Nadler is an exceptional clinician and a pleasure to collaborate with. She coaches clients on the importance of nutritional changes and/or supplements to help with anxiety, depression as well as a number of physical abnormalities. She is caring, responsible, and is our “go-to” person when standard psychotherapeutic approaches aren’t sufficient, particularly when there seem to be underlying biochemical issues at play. I am impressed with how she so adeptly stays abreast of the latest research related to functional medicine. I’ve had very positive feedback from clients as to her skills and sensitivity, and recommend her highly.

Andrea Borgatello, LCSW

I am so thankful for Julie’s guidance, knowledge, and support. She was absolutely the right person I needed to help conquer the eating disorder that diminished my quality of life for so many years. She taught me the practice of mindfulness and has since helped me to cultivate a holistic approach to eating which allowed me to embrace the wholeness of life. Eating is no longer a source of fear and worry but of contentment and joy. Julie also helped me to see my body differently, a practice all of its own.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is a systems-oriented approach to addressing the underlying causes of disease. It addresses the whole person and evaluates the interactions between genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that contribute to health and disease. Functional medicine is science based, and uses a variety of tests and history taking to discover the source of dysfunction. Evaluating gene sequences, diet and lifestyle, a functional medicine practitioner is able to recommend food and supplementation routines that address the true cause of the patient’s illness.
