what to expect

 

Relationships need clear communication, so below I've laid out how we get to know each other.

 

THE INITIAL CONSULT

In your initial consult we’ll go over your concerns, I’ll ask you questions, you tell me your story. You’ll learn about your health from a physiological and mindfulness perspective. You’ll tell me your obstacles that stand in the way of the changes your want. We’ll figure out next steps. We’ll likely want to check in again in the next 3-6 weeks.

 

THE NEXT THREE FOLLOW-UPS

Your next three follow ups will be 45 mins. Depending on the complexity of your concerns, we’ll space them out appropriately. These are when we check in on your challenges and successes. Mindfulness practices and yoga may be part of these consults, and we’ll dive a little deeper into your concerns.

 

BEYOND

After these three consults, you’ve likely made some sustainable movement and mindfulness changes. Follow ups will likely be 30 minute check ins 1-2 times a year, as a way to maintain a healthcare relationship that serves you.

NO DISPENSING

I do not sell remedies, supplements or prescriptions. When a marketplace lands in an office, there are inherent conflicts of interest. My focus will be on your lifestyle and daily practices.

 

WHOLE-PERSON, STEADY CARE

I believe that you are more than your “condition.” I will engage with you deeply, and call on your patience—as health changes take time.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE

I trust that you will see other healthcare providers for medical oversight. There is no “one” profession that can do it all. I know my scope - mindbody practices and nutrition - and I stick to it.
