Jodie Skillicorn

I am board certified in Psychiatry and Integrative and Holistic Medicine. In my practice, I integrate conventional medical training with evidence-based holistic methods that include breath-work, meditation, yoga, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), hypnotherapy, energy medicine, nutrition, exercise, and auricular acupuncture. I focus on empowering others with mood management skills and facilitating lifestyle changes to help people overcome depression, anxiety, and trauma without medications, so they may heal and thrive.

Just as love often gets reduced to a trite Hallmark Greeting card, teachings about the heart diminish its function to a vessel that pumps blood around the body. Don't get me wrong, the capacity of the heart to beat 100,000 times a day, and distribute 2,000 gallons of blood daily, through 60,000 miles of blood vessels, to provide nourishment to every cell in the body and carry away its waste, is astonishing...
