Your Initial Visit (90 min) – $300
It is a ‘get to know you’ or ‘all about you’ session. We will explore your family history, personal history and your health goals. Based on the information gathered I will recommend a customize protocol for you including recommended laboratory assessment if necessary.
I always encourage you to bring previous laboratory assessments and diagnostic imaging to review during this visit. And if you are so inclined I welcome you to bring your supplements with you but note I will challenge you on why you are taking them.
Your 2nd visit (1 hour and 15 minutes) – $225
This is where we discuss your findings. At this appointment I will have prepared a plan for you to follow. This plan is a guideline and we will work together to fine tune it as we continue our journey towards your identified health goals. Remember – this is ‘all about you’ and together we want to ensure the plan sets you up for success meaning the plan is doable and achievable.

These visits allow for further fine-tuning of your plan. They are used to help you keep focused and to celebrate your milestones. Subsequent appointments may be more frequent initially to ensure we stay on task. Consider them as your strategizing and coaching sessions.
