Frequently Asked Questions

thumbnail_IMG_6005Happy,  healthy families are my passion. The demands of modern society have led many of us to live in energy depleting patterns and habits. Learning to take care of ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally allows us to live full, joyful lives, and to build health, balance, and resiliency. Fill your cup and let it overflow!

FAQ #1.  Do you work with teenagers? Can you work with my son or daughter?
Yes! If they are under 18, I’d like for you to be present in our meetings (or be in the call).  When adolescents understand the role of the food they eat in how they feel and look,  it becomes easier for them to make better food and lifestyle choices. Even mood disorders like mild depression and anxiety, which have become common amongst our teens, can be improved by dietary and lifestyle modifications. I love working with young people — they respond beautifully and quickly. 

FAQ #2. Are you a Registered Dietitian (RD)?  I’m not a Registered Dietitian.  I have a Master’s Degree in Nutrition & Exercise Physiology and have experience as a Nutrition Counselor & Health Educator.  I have  additional  training in Functional Nutrition and continue to do research and get continuing education in nutrition, stress management, detoxification, mind and body balance. I’m interested in everything that promotes harmony, joy, health & wellness. 

FAQ #3.  Is this expensive? Are your services covered by insurance? 
Fees are very reasonable and are not covered by insurance.  Depending on your goals, time, and budget, we can do individual consultations or create a custom package.  If you are not feeling well this is probably the best investment you can make — health is wealth.

My Wellness Education Program is for those who want to learn about nutrition,  lifestyle (healthy eating, food purchasing, reading food labels, exercise, …) and/or understand health conditions (allergies, Hashimoto’s, etc….). It can be any number of meetings. We can cover a lot in 1 – 2 sessions.

My Foundations of Health Program is designed to help you address  health issues and reach your health goals (fibromyalgia, autoimmune issues, indigestion, etc…).  We will work on finding the root cause(s), balancing your body nutritionally, identifying and removing blocks to health,  and provide you with education, tools, and a plan to help you nourish and support your body.  This entails a minimum of 2 consultations.

FAQ #4. Why hire a Health Coach? A health coach is someone who can help you identify the changes you need to make to reach your health goals and help you implement them.  Guide you to discover and remove things that  keep you from being well.  A health coach provides accountability, awareness, and support, and minimizes overwhelm with specific, targeted tips to optimize your life and health. Because of my background and experience in biology, nutrition and health education, I can help you understand your symptoms, help you figure out which supplements you need, what to work on first, and much more.  You can eat delicious food and be satisfied, no need to go hungry!  I’ll help you make a healthier lifestyle your new normal.  I feel blessed to be able to offer this to you.  Keep in mind that the longer you wait to take action, the more complex your issues will become.  YOU ARE WORTHY OF SUPPORT.
