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.

During this time of year as we transition from Daylight Savings Time back to Standard Time, people polarize into two distinct groups. Miraculously this does not appear to relate to Red and Blue, but rather our relationship with Light and Dark. My husband and I are on opposite sides of this divide. He has a longer drive to work and prefers more light in the morning when he's most tired. I, on the other..

They were already wired high on sugar, comradery, running, and the thrill of an Ohio State football victory, and then just before bedtime they started talking excitedly about what girls they liked in their grade. All this is to say it was a very late night and I too was unable..

It turns out scientists forced the fish to imbibe ethanol for two weeks and then cut her off abruptly forcing her into a severe state of withdrawal. Why? Unfortunately for the poor fish, it seems that fish brains have..

My sweet, loving dog who has never hurt another dog or human (groundhogs and squirrels are another story, unfortunately) bit another dog on the rump today while hiking in the woods. He lurched at the dog and I slid on wet leaves losing control of the leash. It all happened quickly. I felt horribly horrible. As I apologized I heard myself saying over and over, "I don't understand, I don't understand."..
