WHAT TO EXPECT

COMPASSION. KNOWLEDGE. SUPPORT.

BEFORE YOUR FIRST CONSULTATION

Once you book your initial consultation, you will receive an e-mail from my online booking system a virtual receptionist -Jane. She will prompt you to fill out an online intake form. 

There are many questions in the intake form and it goes a lot more in depth than a standard form at your medical doctors office. In your first consultation I will ask a lot of questions regarding your past medical history, your family's health history, lifestyle habits, diet, mental/emotional wellbeing, and any barriers you might have to optimal health. This information will allow me to better understand the root cause of your health concerns and to come to know who you are a bit better; both of which are foundational to naturopathic care. 

This can be a lot of information to provide all at once. I appreciate your candidness and respect that sharing the story of you can be a vulnerable thing to do, and is sometimes not possible for you on the first visit. 

 

Please bring a copy of your most recent blood work with you (preferably within the last year). I ask that if you are currently on any medications, supplements, or herbs, that you please take pictures of the labels to bring with you. 

 

YOUR INITIAL CONSULTATION

Our first appointment together is 90 minutes. This allows me to take the time to appreciate who you are as a person, and allows me to fully address your health concerns. By discussing all of the pertinent information you provided in your intake form, it guides me in determining the root cause of any issues you may be struggling with. 

 

If necessary, I will perform focused physical examinations to get a baseline of your current state of health. This is nothing invasive, just a general screening exam. If you require further investigations such as lab work and imaging to support finding the root cause of your concerns, this will be discussed so you understand how these investigations will support your health. We will ask your medical doctor to provide those investigations for you, or I can order those investigations for you privately.  ​

 

The information gathered in the initial consultation will allow me to design a comprehensive and wholistic treatment plan for you using a variety of natural therapies based on what we discuss together to get you feeling better.  We will formulate short term and longterm treatment plans specific to your health goals. Please note, treatment may not be initiated on the first visit. 

 

My intention is to provide support by offering strategies and knowledge that inspires you, motivates you, and is fully aligned with who you are. This may include: 

  • nutritional recommendations to set the foundation for your health. 

  • supplemental nutritional medicine such as vitamins and minerals (oral, IV or IM), and/or homeopathic remedies to restore balance to your body. 

  • customized botanical preparations to support your body's innate healing abilities. 

  • physical Medicine such as acupuncture, electro-stimulation, massage, manipulation, cupping, and hydrotherapy.

  • lifestyle changes such as incorporating self-care strategies to foster balance, movement, and connection.   

 

$250.00 

 

YOUR SECOND CONSULTATION 

Our second appointment together is 60 minutes. We will check in on how you are feeling. We will also assess your progress from our initial consultation together to get an idea of how your treatment plan it is going for you, if treatments were recommended. 

 

What shifts are you beginning to feel in your body with the small changes you have introduced? It takes time for your body to find balance and restore health, and this certainly requires commitment and patience. Eventually we will see lasting changes, and positive shifts in your physical, mental, and emotional health.

 

If there has been any additional lab work conducted, I will interpret those results for you to help you understand what your body may be asking for, and what the results mean. 

 

We may modify your treatment plan accordingly, and solidify a treatment strategy based on what has been working for you. During this visit I may also conduct more specific diagnostic physical exams if necessary. 

$195.00

 
 

CONTINUING CARE FOLLOW UP CONSULTATIONS

Follow up appointments are usually 30-60 minutes in length. Each appointment will be different and customized for you and your unique needs. You will now have a solidified wholistic treatment plan from your first and second consultations, and I will use various natural therapies to help guide your body to restore balance and heal. The goal is to get you living your healthiest and happiest life! 

As you start to evolve and shift your lifestyle, you will begin to see changes in your health within 1-3 months. It may take up to 18 months to see lasting change. I provide you with medical guidance and support every step of the way, making modifications to your treatment plan when necessary so you can move forward and reach your health goals. 

 

We will meet every 1-2 months (this will depend on what your body needs), and we will build onto your treatment plan along the way. I will continue to support you with various natural therapies to provide your body with what it needs to become balanced, and restore health.
