I am Christina Veselak, owner of Garden Gate Counseling and The Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition. I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) specializing in individual counseling, and Mental Health Nutrition. I maintain a private practice in Southeast Denver, CO.

With over 30 years experience as a clinician,  I am currently serving as private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are relapse prevention for chronic relapsers, chronic pain and illness, life struggles, mental health nutrition and addiction treatment.  I provide training and supervision of interns and clinicians wishing to integrate nutritional awareness into their practices. I have also worked with Dr. Beth Ballen in the Colorado Recovery Infusion Center where we used IV amino acid therapy for drug and alcohol detox and to address issues such as major depression, ADHD and anxiety.

In addition, I present at national conferences and to general audiences on topics ranging from Nutrition and Brain ChemistryHypoglycemia, Adrenal Fatigue in Addicted Families, and Integrating Nutritional Strategies into a Private Practice. I currently teach two on-line courses in biochemical and nutritional approaches to mental health and addiction recovery for The Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition. 

As a solution-focused psychotherapist and mental health nutritionist in southeast Denver, CO, my treatment approach is to provide caring support and practical skills to help my clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. With sensitivity and compassion, I help you find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues.

I draw on a blend of conventional techniques and alternative styles to identify what is most helpful for each individual. I help you build on your strengths, create vibrant health and achieve your life goals.  I believe that it is possible for all of us to create a life worth living!
