Together we can positively impact your health by using the power of healthy food and good nutrition! Contact me to discuss any questions you have or to schedule an appointment.
No matter what service you choose, in our first session:
a) We will discuss your specific health & wellness goals, b) We will review in detail your new patient questionnaire (I’ll ask you to fill this out prior to the appointment) and c) I will develop a personalized 3-point behavior action plan for you to start right away that will bring you closer to your goals.
The system I use is called SWOT analysis. I assess your eating/lifestyle Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities for change and Threats to your ultimate, long-term success. I will offer each patient specialized resources as needed such as recipe books, whole-food diet jump starts, photo food logging, metabolic testing, DNA testing, etc.
