Your First Visit
What to Expect
Your initial visit begins long before we meet in person. When you schedule an appointment as a new client, I gather a lot of information in advance that will help me learn who you are.
The first step in working with you as a new client is taking an extensive nutritional health history. To prepare for your appointment, as a Holistic Health Practitioner, I work hard to get to know your individual needs by digging into your lifestyle, eating habits, blood and lab test results, medications and supplements, social support systems, and environment while at work and play.
To guide you toward optimal health, I have access to varied lab testing and computer based programs that help me see where improvements may be made nutritionally. I may make specific supplement recommendations.
Your first appointment can be held in person or via video chat and usually takes about an hour. We discuss my report of findings, review recommendations and set goals.
I typically follow up with an email reviewing everything discussed during your visit. A follow up appointment is scheduled anywhere from 2 – 3 weeks after your first visit.
Please review the “Important & Frequently Asked Questions” page prior to scheduling your initial appointment. (Don’t forget to come back here when you are done.)
Please visit the Contact Page and fill out the “Request an Appointment” form in the middle of the page.
If you’ve had any lab work or blood tests within the last 12 months, please locate them and keep them handy. They will need to be forwarded to me during the intake process. If you do not have anything current, we can write a script to have blood work done, if necessary.
I will request a 24-48 hour food journal in order to gain an understanding of your typical eating patterns. Please be as thorough as possible, and remember to record the approximate time of day you eat as well.
After you submit the “Request an Appointment” form, you will receive an email with instructions on how to complete all of the intake information. Please be as thorough as possible. It may take an hour or more to complete the online assessments, so choose a quiet time when you can concentrate.
Payment for all services is required prior to your visit. You will receive a PayPal invoice once you request an appointment. Your consultation will not be scheduled until payment for services is received.
The key to success is to focus on goals, not obstacles.
The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide you're not going to stay where you are.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.
Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
Don't wait for the opportunity. Create it!
If you knew success was a certainty, what would you attempt to do?
You just can't beat the person who never gives up.
Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
It all comes down to motivation. If you really want to do something, you will work hard for it.
