For clients not living in the Washington DC metropolitan area, I do meet via Skype, Facetime and telephone. As with in person consultations, initial visits are 90 minutes and follow up visits are 45-50 minutes.
During your initial visit, we will discuss your present health goals and your health history. This conversation is based on the intake form that I ask you to fill out for me prior to your first visit. Information you share with me will facilitate the appropriate choice of dietary and herbal recommendations to fit your unique needs, I also take into account recent blood work, nutritional supplements and prescription drugs you are taking.
Together we work to come up with goals and objectives and based on these, you will leave your first visit with a few recommendations tailored to fit your goals, constitution, history (personal and family), symptom patterns, nutrient and caloric needs, and food preferences and/or sensitivities (if any).
The number of follow-ups depends on your individual needs, although I recommend that you make at least 2 follow-ups so that progress can be evaluated and recommendations can be adjusted based on your response.
Face-to-face counseling allows for weighing in on a TANITA scale that tracks body fat, body water and muscle mass; factors that provide more detailed information about your health status. While meeting in person I will also check your blood pressure, and do a brief physical exam.
When I do my job well, you will feel empowered to tend to your health. As the focus moves towards maintaining wellness, I find it helpful to come in seasonally so you can learn how to care for your body with food and herbs during different times of the year.
I look forward to working with you!
