Work With Me

Our work together will be a collaboration, it is important you take an active role in the changes that will be vital to achieve optimal health.

I will evaluate your current diet, provide feedback and support, and share knowledge with you, helping lay the groundwork for positive, long-term change. You will be the one responsible for paying attention to how your body responds and sharing the results with me.

Everything will be tailored to fit your needs and my recommendations typically vary between clients. Below, you’ll find a simple outline of how we will work together

Consultations take place remotely via Zoom video conference or if you are nearby Scotts Valley, CA, we can meet in person at my home office. If video conference or in person are not an option, we can “meet” via phone.

Complimentary 20 Minute Intro Call

This is a great way for us to briefly get to know each other and decide if I am the appropriate fit for your needs. We’ll talk about what’s happening for you and what working with each other might be like.

First Initial Intake Consultation – 90 minutes

Our first consultation will cover a broad overview of your health and wellness, goals you’d like to accomplish, and things you’ve tried in the past. Before our first consultation, I’ll want to you use my template to complete a 3 day food/activity journal, provide a list of supplements/medications you are taking, and recent lab work. It is important you complete and send me that information 3 days before our first consultation. This is a helpful tool for both of us to clearly see where you are at before our first meeting. By the end of our consultation, we will determine the goals you want to accomplish and talk about how to make them happen

Follow Up Consultations  – 50 minutes (Two or Five, depending on package)

These consultations are for us to check in, honor your accomplishments, and talk about challenges that came up after our initial consultation. We can meet weekly, bi-weekly, or every 3rd week, depending on what works best for you. The follow-up consultations will allow us to continue to expand on your goals and our work together to support them. Each consult will end with actionable items for each of us to complete that we both agree will be helpful

Consultation Follow-up

After we meet, I will email you with our consultation notes, summary of action items, and any recommendations, like what supplements to try, recipes, activities, and/or lifestyle suggestions. I will also be available to you via email during my business hours to answer any quick questions.

FAQ’s

Why a three or six consultation package?

True recovery and long term lifestyle changes take time and commitment.  It is very important to be realistic when incorporating new routines and not rush to make changes, doing so can be overwhelming and stressful, which is exactly what we don’t want! Clients dealing with chronic or significant health concerns usually need a minimum of  3-6 months to begin to notice positive changes. A three consultation package will last 3 weeks to 3 months and a six consultation package will last 6 weeks – 6 months, depending on how often we agree to meet.

What is the difference between a Certified Nutrition Consultant and Registered Dietician?

Nutrition Consultants posses extensive knowledge of how nutrition, supplements, biochemical balance, and lifestyle choices affect physical and mental health. They advise people how each of those can be managed to support optimal health and well-being

Registered Dietitians often follow institutional dietary recommendations such the USDA My Plate model (formerly The Food Pyramid), relying on recommendations from the national associations that generally reflect institutional application and commercial interests.

Do I need to take supplements?

I prefer to use food and/or lifestyle changes first – however there are times, such as a known deficiency, hormone dis-regulation, histamine issues, or digestive dysfunction, where supplements can make a dramatic difference. I use professional lines, not found a mainstream drugstores. These professional lines are often more potent, therefore you’ll need to take fewer pills to get the same results you’d get from a non professional brand. They are also formulated by doctors, scientists, and nutritionists. Another plus is they do not contain harmful artificial colors, flavors, or additives.
