Appointment structure:

15 Minute FREE Initial Consultation (for prospective clients BY PHONE ONLY)

An opportunity for potential clients to ask questions pertaining to their individual situation and for me to present the structure that I use, combined with an exploratory discussion to ensure that the practitioner/client relationship will be a good match. Intake form and food log would be emailed following this appointment if you wanted to proceed with an Assessment Session.

Duration: 15 mins      Price: FREE   (OPTIONAL appointment)      


Assessment Session - 1st Appointment   

(In Person. For distance clients: phone or SKYPE)

Detailed investigation of the client’s health history, current symptoms/issues, diet, supplementation, and goals. The appointment will include a review of the information on the intake form and food log, as well as a verbal assessment of dietary/symptom connections and priorities. Clients will need to complete an intake form and one-week food log in advance of this appointment. Any health supplements and medications are currently being used should ideally be brought to this appointment. Written recommendations are not included at this appointment - they will be provided as part of the Recommendation Appointment.

If this appointment is for a child, it is ideal that the child attend a 10 – 15 minute portion of the appointment at the beginning or end, but they are welcome to be present for the whole appointment as long as the parent feels they can focus with their child present. If it is not possible for the child to attend at all, I would like the parent to provide some short recent videos showing the child in some of their usual activities, including meal times.

Duration: 120 mins       Price: $150.00       


Generally booked 1 – 2weeks after the Assessment Session:

Recommendation Session - 2nd Appointment

(In Person. For distance clients: phone or SKYPE)

Between the Assessment Session and the Recommendation Session, I will create a written recommendation package for the client to keep, which will cover dietary, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations, as well as provide detailed instructions on how to implement dietary adjustments and any recipes, articles, or other documents that may be helpful. We will spend the session reviewing this package together and clarifying the reasoning behind the recommendations. There will be time for questions and any new discussion that was not covered during the Assessment Sesssion. The client should feel fully equipped to implement changes at this point, but does have email access if needed between this appointment and the next Follow-Up (3rd appointment)

Duration: 120 mins      Price: $230.00        


Generally booked 2-3 weeks after the Recommendation Session:
