Vonda Schaefer, MFT
Are you suffering from:
My work is to take a healthy approach to decrease physical and emotional symptoms.
The clients I work with report a variety of the following symptoms: insomnia, fatigue, depression, substance abuse, ADD, anxiety, panic attacks, eating disorders, and others. This is no way to live life! When our brain chemistry and our bodies are healthy and balanced, we are able to experience pleasure, enjoy life and relationships without battling through symptoms.
Because I am a Nutritionist and a Psychotherapist, I can help sort out what is physical/chemical and what is emotional. Through the use of targeted supplements and dietary coaching, my clients experience relief of plaguing symptoms.
With my degree in Nutrition, a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, and a certification in Neuronutrient therapy, I understand biological connections to symptoms. My work is to create sustainable, healthy, and non-addictive solutions to psychological issues.
My additional experience includes: work as a Clinical Supervisor, supervising peers as well as interns, authoring a book entitled “Counseling Youth: 101 Answers,” and teaching at a local community college.
My practice is based out of Walnut Creek, California. Initial client consultations are in person, but follow-ups may be conducted via phone and/or Skype.
$295.00 ($175.00 follow ups)
During the initial 1.5 hour consultation we will draw up a guided plan. I provide a road map that will likely include targeted supplements, determined through an assessment, lab testing, and trailing. The plan may also include dietary changes and further testing when warranted.

I still schedule psychotherapy appointments—I am a licensed psychotherapist. My unique approach to psychotherapy sessions incorporates the neuronutrient and nutrition work.
Although I am a licensed therapist, I do not contract with insurance companies. If requested I can provide a super bill which you can submit to your insurance company for applicable reimbursements.
