Lets grow together!

More often than not, many of my new clients are unsure how to set realistic expectations for positive therapeutic outcomes. With the absence of gold stars or report cards in therapy, it can be challenging to identify the important stages of progress. 


From session one, our relationship is collaborative. I want everyone I work with to understand both the treatment plan and subsequent goals of therapy while maintaining reasonable expectations of the process. As a Nutritional Psychologist, I treat everyone holistically while identifying the factors leading to the presenting symptoms. In most cases, everything we do each day from eating to sleeping contributes to many of the most common mood aliments people need help with and I treat every person, the whole person, as both complicated and unique. Within the safe space we create, I strive to help every client leave treatment with a new toolbox full of valuable resources to self regulate emotional imbalances, as best they can. 


Dr. Lawton is a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and Nutritional Psychologist. He began his studies in Neuroscience & Behavior with a minor in Early Childhood Education. Along with his doctorate in Clinical Psychology, he holds Master’s degrees in both Clinical Psychology and Nutrition Science
