Karen Ryan is both a certified clinical nutritionist and registered holistic nutritionist and spent many years working in nutrition services in the hospital system. Karen’s focus shifted over 12 years ago, though, when her son was diagnosed with ADHD and severe anxiety at a very young age.
She now runs an ADHD clinic out of the Finlandia Health Centre, specializing in drug free strategies for managing both ADHD and mental wellness and is the founder of VancouverADHD and EverydayADDvice magazine. She is also the author of ‘ADHD is not a Four Letter Word’ and works hard to help children and youth advocate for themselves as well as empower their parents into making informed choices about mental health treatments. Karen currently teaches Body-Mind-Spirit: The Mind Connection.
