Laura Duffy, CNS Candidate

Hi, my name is Laura and I’m a functional nutritionist who specializes in mental health nutrition. I use a whole-body approach to help people struggling with mood or cognitive disorders understand how nutrition can be used to help them feel better. By meeting people where they’re at and encouraging a series of small changes, I help people co-create approachable, sustainable change that can result in big improvements in health, mood, and brain function.

Over the past decade, I’ve worked as a nutritionist at a regional health food store, dental office, and functional medicine clinic. After 10 years of working in the field of nutrition, curiosity about how nutrition might be contributing to the increasing number of mental health disorders in my loved ones led me to enhance my education with a master’s degree in human nutrition and functional medicine at the University of Western States. I’m now finishing my last few classes and seeing clients under supervision while I complete the 1,000 hours of supervised clinical practice I’ll need to become a Certified Nutrition Specialist and licensed dietitian-nutritionist.

In addition to the master’s degree from the University of Western States that I’m finishing, I hold a bachelor’s degree in sociology and master’s of business administration from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. I’ve also completed a certificate in holistic nutrition consulting from the American College of Healthcare Sciences, a certificate in nutritional psychology from JKU University, and multiple training courses from Psychiatry Redefined, a resource for education on integrative psychiatry.

I look forward to hearing your story!
