Functional Medicine Health & Nutrition Coaching
My approach as a Functional Nutrition and Medicine Health Coach focuses on holistic health, which looks at the whole person – body, mind, spirit, emotions, values, goals, and life purpose in order to address underlying health conditions.
What is Functional Medicine Health Coaching?
As a functional medicine health coach and nutritionist, I will partner with you during your journey of healing and help you explore a new approach and perspective about healing. After suffering for many years with chronic migraines, I have discovered how to restore and renew the body’s own ability to heal itself. I come to you offering my experience and compassion with the process of whole-body healing. This involves understanding your body’s unique needs and working toward sustainable change.
Coaching may cover topics such as alternative treatment options; genetic and biochemical testing; using a migraine calendar and food journal; addressing food triggers; lifestyle and dietary suggestions; emotional support; and more. Your coaching will include video, phone, and email interaction, as well as informative handouts and supplementary research to keep you on track. Coaching can be done anywhere in the world; I work with clients internationally and locally. I am also available to come to your home and help with kitchen set-up, cooking techniques, meal planning and preparation so that you can be successful in your healing. Additionally, I find that it’s helpful to partner with your doctor to form a collaborative relationship so that we can best support you.
A coaching program varies from person to person and will be designed to meet your individual needs.
In general, this includes:
- Individualized coaching sessions
- E-mail and phone support between sessions
- Help finding providers in your town
- Resources for testing & supplementation
- Additional research and resources to increase your understanding of the changes you’re making
- My personal commitment to your health and healing
Cost of Consultation & Coaching
I am committed to helping you heal your migraines. Therefore, I offer my services on a sliding scale based upon your income, if necessary. Those of you that can afford my standard fees will help me provide my services to others in need that are in financial hardship.
The initial 1.5 hour consultation is $150, which involves a comprehensive review of medical history, current medications and supplements, diet, lifestyle, and an investigation into potential triggers. Follow-up 30-minute sessions are $60 each. I invite you to think of our work together as a process. Many people create change for themselves in a short time. However, to refine and sustain this change can take several months. Although not binding, I would ask that you expect our relationship to last at least 3 months.
How to Get Help
I spent over 10 years going to migraine specialists and taking every pharmaceutical prescribed to me before I realized that I was actually getting worse. After accepting that the doctors I trusted were unable to help me, I had to overcome the obstacles I faced – such as financial constraints, the challenge of taking responsibility for my lifestyle choices and health, and not having enough time to seek alternative, holistic treatments. I can relate to the challenges you may be experiencing – and I encourage you to work through them by my side. We can explore new ways to address your health.
My mission is to help you get well and then we can spread the message of hope together, one person at a time. Will you join me?
Don’t let obstacles get in the way of your health and wellness. There is hope to heal!
