Nutritional Therapy is a participatory process. Please come to our appointments ready to invest in your health by engaging with change!
I am located at 1416 W. Washington St. in Boise, in collaboration with the Resonance Natural Health Group. I am also available to work with distance clients by phone or Skype.
Two introductory appointments — A Great Start (typically 90 minutes each)
Before our first meeting, you will need to complete a health history, a detailed symptom report, and a food journal. This information, in combination with our conversation during our first appointment, will give me a comprehensive understanding of your nutritional status and the foundational causes of your symptoms. During our first meeting, I will listen closely to your health goals, review my initial findings with you, offer education, and suggest key diet and lifestyle changes for your implementation.
During your second visit (typically about 1 week after the first), I will perform a functional evaluation. The physical evaluation allows me to assess the current state of your unique physiology, check for nutritional deficiencies, and determine the most helpful treatments for you.
To conclude our introductory appointments, I will give you a personalized and detailed analysis of your nutritional priorities with an achievable, step-by-step plan of food and supplements for you to begin to implement positive change. I want to set you up for success, so we will work together to be sure the plan makes sense to you.
Follow up appointments — Continuing the Journey (30-60 minutes)
In most cases, it is important to check in with me every 2-3 weeks during the first few months, and then monthly for at least a few months after that — until you are feeling comfortable continuing your journey without my direct assistance. During each follow-up we may re-test your body to track improvements and allow me to adjust your protocols. As your body responds to the changes you implement, new priorities will surface that need attention (it’s often like peeling an onion… one layer at a time).
Though deep change (needed for many) takes time (often 3 months or longer), most clients begin to notice some favorable change within their bodies within a few weeks of dedicated adherence to our protocol. Just as with a course of physical therapy or a series of visits with a psychologist can create clear, positive change in a person, so can Nutritional Therapy… but you can’t expect to see the benefits after only one visit. I will guide you on this journey and help you reach your goals.
I work quite effectively across distance — we can meet either by phone or Skype. I prefer Skype so that we can see each other, and also so I can share electronic files with you in real-time. Before we meet for the first time, you will complete and send to me a food log and 2 questionnaires to give me an in-depth picture of your situation. Our first skype session will likely be 90 minutes long, and follow-ups (usually 30 minutes) will occur approximately every 2-3 weeks for a few months so that we can track your progress and I can help you adjust to the changes you’ll likely experience in your body.
If you’re not sure you’re ready to commit to a full personal analysis, consider an Educational Session (~60 minutes, flexible)
We can meet at my office or your home (client’s choice) to talk more generally about nutrition. I will be happy to listen to your goals and assist you in making a plan for improving your relationship with food, sticking with self-made goals, or learning more about specific topics such as healthy fats, where to source foods, how to eat less sugar, or how to cook more healthy meals for your family. I can guide you toward resources (online and books/articles) where you can further your learning. If you choose to invite me to your home, I can include an evaluation of your pantry/fridge contents and suggest healthier options, and/or make a separate appointment for a complete make-over of your food stocks.
Please note, I do not accept insurance at this time.
