Boulder, CO — Mary Kay Irving is the founder of the Boulder Center for Health & Nutrition. A licensed clinical social worker, nutrition therapist and trauma therapist, Irving offers a unique and fully integrative approach at the intersection of physical, mental and spiritual health.

Boulder Center for Health & Nutrition is an evolution of Mary Kay’s private practice as a trauma-based psychotherapist. In 2006, she experienced some serious health challenges of her own. Thought she would survive breast cancer, at the end of the treatment, she went into a very deep, dark depression. Then family members died, and her town had a tornado and the housing market crashed. The evidence-based therapies she’d relied on herself no longer seemed to work, nor did antidepressants.

That’s when Irving sought out integrative health specialists on the cutting edge looking for nutritional supplementation and other underlying causes to help with the depression. In the end, Irving discovered the true source of her issues: sugar. Inspired by Gary Taubes, a respected health research scientist and author of The Case Against Sugar, Irving made the suggested changes to eating, eliminating all processed and added sugars, and replaced them with healthy fats. Within two weeks, her mood had shifted, her energy had improved, and her brain fog cleared up.

“My desire is to reach as many people as possible and get more people and more therapists feeling comfortable, familiar, and trained in the questions they could be asking and how they could be better help clients who don't seem to be getting better,” says Irving.
