While I enjoy helping clients with a wide variety of concerns, here are a few symptoms that you may be experiencing and that I focus on most.
The body takes time to heal, and it often takes anywhere from two to six months to begin seeing consistent results. A few of the most common benefits of working together are:
In this first session together, we will discuss your health goals and history and review your current state of health (mind, body, and emotions) with a focus on uncovering the roots of imbalance. After a thorough initial session and assessment, including a review of any accompanying lab work, you will receive specific recommendations in some or all the following categories:
Your initial intake session includes one follow-up session to review and discuss my Report of Findings and recommendations.
$150 for a two-hour initial intake session followed by a 45-minute follow-up session.
To see the best results in your health, it’s best to commit to a minimum of 3 months of follow-up sessions so you’ll have the opportunity to monitor your lifestyle adjustments, ask questions, and make any changes that are needed. For more chronic conditions, a longer period of time is often needed, at least 6 months or more depending on your condition. These packages include a session every other week. Throughout this 3 or 6 month period, you have access to me through my health portal, email, or by phone (some restrictions apply).
$150 per month for six 60-minute sessions.
$130 per month for twelve 60-minute sessions.
We believe that everyone should have access to information and resources for living a holistic, vibrant, and healthy life. If you need financial support for your sessions, then ask about my sliding scale options when you schedule your appointment.

Yes and no. Currently, I am able to order or guide you to self-order select lab work; however, conventional blood work and testing paid through your insurance or more specialized functional labs will need to be ordered through your primary care provider.
After our first session together, we may identify lab work that would be helpful to have, and I can work with your primary care provider or request specific labs for you.
If you’ve worked with your primary care physician for these tests in the past, then please bring the results to your appointment or upload them into your client portal so we can review them together. These tests often include helpful information and clues that we’ll use to shape your customized diet and herbal wellness plan.
No! In fact, I will probably add more nourishing foods than I take away.
I use the Elimination and Rechallenge method with many clients (but not all), and find this to be one of the most reliable tests for determining food intolerances. Most of the time, we will only eliminate foods temporarily to reduce inflammation, let your body recalibrate, and to find out how your immune and digestive systems are responding to specific foods. Removing potential food triggers will help the “dust settle” so we can more clearly identify the root cause of your discomforts or chronic condition.
With enough time and healing, many people are eventually able to reintroduce foods that were previously a trigger. However, for others, removing a true food intolerance, like gluten for individuals with Celiac disease, is a lifelong journey that has the potential to dramatically improve your overall health physically, mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually.
When you schedule your first appointment, you will receive several online forms to complete. One of the forms is a 3-day food journal that I will ask you to complete before our session. You will have several options for completing this task, just choose the one that works best for you and your lifestyle.
If you have lab work, it is helpful to have that prior to our visit, but it is not necessary. You may submit that lab work several ways:
