The former Minds in Motion health care practice located on Hilltop Parkway in Steamboat Springs has rebranded with the new name Emerald Integrative Health to better represent the growth and breadth of the decade-old health care organization.

“We have become a true integrative medicine clinic specializing in working with the body and mind in concert,” said Angela Melzer, owner of Emerald Integrative Health. “Our goal is to increase accessibility to patients in need of our services while reintroducing our clinic to the community as an integrative health clinic that is no longer specifically focused on mental health alone.”

The clinic opened in 2014 with two practitioners providing psychiatric medication management, counseling and meditation classes. After 10 years, the clinic has grown to include six therapists, a functional medicine doctor, naturopathic doctor, dietitian, two psychiatric nurse practitioners and a certified life coach.

The providers and staff at Emerald Integrative Health practice whole body care within a team approach. The practice is dedicated to collaborative care with an integrative mental and medical approach for those who are looking to improve overall health. Through the years, the practitioners have served and helped more than 3,000 people.

Services at the clinic include a broad spectrum of mental health and medical care such as functional and naturopathic medicine, nutrition counseling along with individual, couples and family counseling. The clinic also has expanded its services to include additional options in IV therapies for vulnerable populations, ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, increased dietitian availability and genetic testing of medications to tailor treatment to the individual.

“At the core, our location, mission and philosophy are the same,” Melzer said. “The noticeable change will be our increased availability to our patients as well as the wider community. Existing patients may rest assured that they can still reach their providers, utilize the patient portal and contact the office via the same means until further notice.”

In addition to owner Melzer, a neuro-based psychotherapist, the practice includes Lisa Wilkinson, nurse practitioner; Dr. Phaedra Fegley, functional medicine/psychiatric physician; Denise Martinez, licensed professional counselor and addiction counselor; Lana Jarosch, registered dietician; Dr. Grace Charles, registered naturopathic doctor and licensed acupuncturist; Rudy Spector, psychiatric nurse practitioner; Alex Osias. Cristen Malia, Jane Berryhill and Olivia Rose, counselors; and Amanda Johnson, certified life coach.
