I have experience providing trauma-informed care within an inpatient substance abuse facility.

As a yoga therapist, DeAnn uses yoga to reconnect the mind and body to release the central nervous system from holding past pain or trauma that has been stored in the body as an undiagnosable disease, such as general body pain, fibromyalgia, tinnitus, IBS, fatigue and more, to regain balance and remove oneself from hyper-vigilance.

DeAnn has a diverse medical background and earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Widener University. She is a member of the Phi Alpha National Honor Society of Social Workers, a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists and the National Association of Social Workers NJ Chapter.

Victoria Schwachter - Art Therapist

My journey to this opportunity to meet and work with you began in special education over 25 years ago.  I have worked in educational settings from elementary through high school, helping each place to be impactful in positive ways including suicide prevention and working to reduce student and families’ reported feelings of stress and isolation.  To me, therapy is learning, so I strive to hold non-judgmental space that promotes self-acceptance and encourages working to achieve goals by celebrating successes big and small.

I have learned from those involved in the mental health system while working there as well – from head trauma survivors’ group homes to psychiatric residential programs – inpatient units and partial hospitalization programs for adults, teens and kids.  I have seen first-hand the frustrations and obstacles that many families and individuals encounter and overcome on their individual path to wellness – living with diagnoses including Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Schizophrenia, Anxiety and Mood disorders - and confronting high risk behaviors such as self-injury. 

I am inspired by those I have met, and by their willingness and drive to create a new life – to write their own story.  My work as a Registered and Board-Certified Art Therapist (Drexel 2001) has allowed me to focus on tools like perspective-taking, mindfulness, problem solving and authentic self-expression in a helping relationship.  My ongoing professional education has allowed me to become more and more trauma-informed and to continue learning aspects of neuroscience that maximize our time spent in session.  I believe that creativity can be a key to feeling joy and a path to experiencing inner and outer beauty. It is a wonderful way for people to connect.  I look forward to meeting with you.

Taylor Groff - Nutritionist

I am a Functional Nutritionist that specializes in using food as medicine to treat the root cause of any illness- physical, emotional, and/or metabolic imbalances that affect our ability to live a happy, healthy, and fulfilled life.

I help move individuals into a state of optimal health and well-being through education and personalized nutrition. I believe education is empowerment and in order to implement lasting change, a foundational understanding of how diet impacts health is essential. I provide you with the tools and resources necessary to make food choices confidently and comfortably in order to reach your health goals and support a state of positive vitality, health, and well-being in any given situation (i.e. environmental, emotional state, or availability).

 

The current medical model focuses on masking symptoms with medication rather than finding and treating the root cause behind them. I use evidence-based nutrition interventions to treat the root cause of functional imbalances within the body at the source. Some example of conditions I treat include, but are not limited to: weight management, obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, autoimmunity, irritable bowel syndrome, digestive disorders, brain health (memory, cognition, and brain fog), detoxification and biotransformation imbalances, chronic fatigue, thyroid disorders, depression, anxiety, and “FLC” syndrome (feel like crap).

I get to know you as an individual with your own genetic uniqueness, health history, lifestyle, and cultural influences before designing your personalized nutrition plan. Your personalized nutrition plan focuses on providing your body with a nutrient-rich environment, so it has everything it needs to thrive. Emphasis is not placed on following a “diet” or specific serving sizes because commitment to weighing and measuring foods as it pertains to diet is not sustainable. Rather, emphasis is placed on relearning what foods to eat in order to support health and eventually grow into a more mindful relationship with food.

Your personalized nutrition plan is designed specifically for you based on your nutritional needs and lifestyle to ensure compliance for sustainable success. Together, we will form a partnership that works toward treating the root cause of disease and dysfunction in the body using food and nutrition at the forefront
