The Mind and Body Are Connected
It’s not just in your head. Mental health and your ability to handle life’s stressors are affected by many factors, including, exercise, sleep, nutrition and gut health, and community.
Hello, I’m Dr. Vicki Steine. At Your Healthy Struture, I use holistic therapy to support families, couples, and individuals explore a variety of ways to take traditional therapy further, by integrating cutting-edge therapeutic techniques with healthy lifestyle choices. My areas of expertise include: anxiety, depression, ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorders, Tourette Syndrome, trauma, and addiction.
Increase your ease, energy, and enjoyment of life
– every day.
There are many areas in our lives that either support our vitality and mental well-being or drain it – and every situation is different. As a therapist and educator, I apply a variety of methods to customize a plan and teach you how to incorporate the lifestyle choices that will be the most effective in increasing your mental health, energy, and enjoyment of life.
Friends, co-workers, family, and significant others – these relationships form the very fabric of our lives. Learn how to improve the quality of all your relationships and enrich your daily life through communication skills that build deeper connections.
Emotions, which are part of being human, can be wonderful or challenging. Whether you’re dealing with anxiety or depression, OCD or trauma, I have a toolbox of techniques that can help you quiet your mind, calm your heart, and make wise choices.
Sleep is one of the most important things we do every day. Without proper rest, your brain and body operate in a deficit. Together, we’ll look at how nutrition and exercise can support better sleep and ways to turn your bedroom into a peaceful oasis.
Making and keeping friends can seem really difficult when you’re dealing with a mental health condition. But your diagnosis doesn’t define who you are. I can help you learn to see, love, and appreciate yourself – and the unique gifts you offer your community.
When a loved one is dealing with anxiety, depression, OCD, or Tourette Syndrome, it affects everyone. I work with individuals and their biological and/or chosen families to help them pull together to ensure that each member feels cared for and supported.
Most people know nutrition plays a role in overall health but may not realize how much what we eat or don’t eat can affect our mental health. As part of this process, we’ll look at your diet, and explore ways that nutrition supports more energy and enjoyment in life.

Why Choose Me
My Holistic Approach: In this age of specialization, it’s easy to lose sight of how things are connected and affect each other. I believe in looking at the bigger picture to see how your nutrition, exercise, and environmental factors are affecting you and can be shifted to support your mental health and well-being.
My experience: I’ve been working in this field for more than 20 years, continuing my education and educating others. Much of what I’ve learned has come from the personal work I’ve done in my own journey.
My commitment to your safety and healing: While every client is different, everyone needs a safe space to heal. You and I will work together to come up with a plan for reaching your goals in a way and at a pace that works for you.
How I Work
Therapy is not one size fits all. There are many schools of thought and even more tools and techniques designed to support a better quality of life.
But what works for one client, might not be right for you. That’s why I’m committed to studying the latest emerging developments in mental health, so that I can offer you a wide range of effective options.
When we meet, you and I will work together to determine the best plan of action for addressing your unique needs and reaching your specific goals. All of the tools and treatment modalities I recommend are included in your session fees.
