Holistic Health Professionals

Help For Kids, Teens & Adults

Dr. Terri and Tina Wankey are Licensed Therapists with a twist.  Counseling for Anxiety, Depression and ADHD are a specialty for teenagers and adults.  However, they are also qualified to provide holistic options that are non-medication solutions for children from the ages of 3 all the way up to adults.  Medication is not the right option for everyone.  So if you or your child is struggling at school or at home and you are looking for a natural, healthy way to heal…look no further!  We have many options available starting with lab testing to uncover the real problem so we can start giving real solutions!

 

You’ve been struggling long enough…

You’ve been struggling with depression or anxiety for what seems to be a lifetime. You keep thinking things will change on their own, or with help from medication.  But they don’t. Even worse medication has left you feeling numb and has caused more anxiety and panic attacks to the point where you think you are dying.  Perhaps you have experienced other negative side effects of medication including suicidal thoughts, weight gain, insomnia or many others.  Either way, this sucks and you know it.  But getting help for your problems was something that you never thought you would do because you aren’t one of ‘those’ people.

At Cardinal Point Dr. Terri Sell & Tina Wankey pride ourselves on treating you with respect and dignity no matter what your concerns are.  We will also treat you as a person and not as a symptom. We not only specialize in therapy but we also specialize in holistic methods to help you feel good again and relieve symptoms of anxiety, depression and ADHD. . We can help you uncover the root of the problem through pinpointed use of lab testing and tackle it head on.  We know it sounds scary, but isn’t it scarier to continue living this way? 

 

You’re Watching Your Child Struggle…

You might be asking yourself, “What happened to my sweet child?”  You wonder what you’ve done ‘wrong’ as a parent.  It’s easy to blame yourself for whatever they are going through. From the moment they are born we protect them.  But now, you feel they are unprotected. 

Perhaps you are worried that they will not make it through preschool let alone graduate from high school. Either way, things have changed, or gotten out of hand at home or school and you hope for something different, soon.

Medications aren’t our first intervention.  We believe in getting to the bottom of the problem starting with pinpointed lab testing and working with your child so they can see their life differently.  Perhaps self-esteem needs boosting, or they need to work on how they see their place in this world.  Most importantly we provide them with a safe place to talk through personal things and to learn how to cope with anxiety or depression.

We know your pain as a parent and can help your child overcome these tough times, naturally.  Please don’t wait to get your child help.  It is never too early, but far too often help can come too late.

OUR DIFFERENCE STARTS WITH LAB TESTING!

What we do know is that you have tried to feel better before and it was really hard. You have spent countless hours on a therapist’s couch and standing in line for your prescription refills.  We also know you think about changing things just about every day but are too scared to take action. Trust us, we know what it’s like. Just the thought of knowing how difficult something is going to be is enough to stop you from doing it altogether. What if we told you it didn’t have to be this way?  What if the secrets to improved mood are right in your body just waiting to be uncovered?  Would you want to do it then?  With lab tests, we lead the way to improved mental and physical health. We are the only therapists who combine lab testing with therapy to improve your outcomes significantly!

We offer the following lab tests:

  • Neurotransmitter Testing
  • Adrenal function
  • Food Sensitivity
  • DNA Genetic Analysis for Mood and Weight Loss
  • MicroNutrient Labs

After we know exactly what to target, we put together a comprehensive plan which includes nutrition therapy and an individualized combination of oral amino acids.  Amino acids help you to improve mood.

 

genetic testing

Your DNA Tells a Story…

Obviously, genetics plays a crucial role in how our bodies grow and age, especially when it comes to our hormones, neurotransmitters, and diet.  In combination, they have an impact on our stress and sleep response.  According to current research, nearly 70 percent of office visits today and a large percentage of prescriptions today are to help manage sleep and emotional liability. Some of these responses are a result of genetics. Variations in our genetic code can have both positive and negative effects on how our bodies manage stress and hormones.

Depression is a feature of some psychiatric syndromes such as major depressive disorder but it may also be a normal reaction to certain life events.  A recent identification of obesity predisposing genes that are highly expressed in the brain raises the possibility of their genetic contribution to depression. Multiple variations contribute to to depression, anxiety and ADHD.  Insomnia, excessive sleeping, fatigue, aches, pains, digestive problems or reduced energy may also be present. Most likely you don’t know if you have these gene variations, which means you don’t know what actions you can take to help maintain your optimal health.

Our DNA Analysis tests for genes and their variations associated with behavior health. While no amount of food or exercise will physically alter our genes, with proper nutritional supplementation and lifestyle changes, you can maintain the functioning of your gene variations to maintain optimal health.
