We Work Together.
People come to me when they are ready and motivated to make real, positive and lasting changes.
Through many years of experience and success, I have developed a process – customized for each individual - that really works:
FIRST, I TAKE A COLLABORATIVE APPROACH.
I work in collaboration with you and your physician to create a customized nutrition and lifestyle program. This is based on a thorough nutritional analysis of both conventional and integrative lab testing so I can help you meet your health goals and support your ongoing therapies.
The testing will give us information on your biochemistry, intestinal health, nutritional status, neurotransmitter metabolites, inflammation, hormonal balance, food sensitivities, etc.
Please keep in mind that nutritionists strive to promote optimal health, but we do not diagnose or treat medical conditions, and all of my clients are being followed by their physician while working with me.
NEXT, I LISTEN AND THOUGHTFULLY EVALUATE YOUR SITUATION.
We initially meet for about two hours. During this time I do a thorough nutritional assessment that takes into consideration your medical history, nutritional intake, lifestyle, current stresses, environment, biochemical/nutritional status, genetics and family history.
I put in quite a few hours outside of our office visit analyzing your lab work and putting the nutritional pieces of your health puzzle together.
TOGETHER WE CREATE A NUTRITIONAL PLAN.
Once your evaluation is complete, I create a customized nutritional plan for you based on your biochemistry that’s comprehensive and user friendly. We monitor your progress, and work you through phases of healing as we meet over a 6-12 month time frame.
During this time you will learn what foods to eat, how to shop and cook, how to reduce environmental toxins, what supplements to take and how to incorporate healthy lifestyle changes that create a vibrant, healthy life. You will also learn how to naturally take care of colds, flu, chronic repeat infections, and other conditions that arise for you during our time together.
I work in collaboration
with you, your physician
FINALLY, WE SUSTAIN YOUR SUCCESS.
Your program will change as you become healthier and healthier, and eventually you will be on a maintenance program. Some people with more complex situations choose to continue meeting several times per year as needed.
Whether your goal is to control gastrointestinal issues, stop joint pain, lose body fat, regain your energy, transform your mood or get a hold of emotional eating, when we get your body’s biochemistry back in balance all of these issues can come into balance as well. My clients tell me they experience immense relief, a sense of empowerment and confidence, and a new joy of living.
