Below you'll find some of the most frequently asked questions about working together!
What are one-on-one sessions like?
Sessions are completely customized to you! Our very first session will be an initial intake where I'll learn all about your health history, lifestyle, current diet, health goals, and so much more! Following this I'll create a completely customized wellness protocol for you to integrate! We will build upon it during each session, based on where you're at.
Our sessions together will leave you feeling inspired, fully seen & heard, cared for, and optimistic. I will create a completely safe space for you, listen to your challenges, and help you shift not only how you eat, but your entire mindset around the way you view food, your body, and even other aspects of your life!
My approach with clients is much like how I am in person. I am light hearted, fun, supportive, joyful, grounded, intuitive, and compassionate. I will always meet you where you're at, and do my best to provide you with what you feel you need most. I want the best for you, and will advocate for and support you in all the ways I possibly can!
What is your approach to nutrition?
My approach to nutrition is whole foods based and always personalized to you, depending on your diet preferences, health goals, lifestyle, family needs, and more.
I typically recommend my clients to follow a more 'plant based' diet, however, I do not recommend 1 specific diet label. If you're joining the 'Anxiety Reduction Protocol' you'll learn the 4 Pillars of a Diet to Ease Anxiety. If you're not specifically focused on anxiety, you'll learn the 4 Pillars of a Nourishing Diet which will help provide a simple way to guide your diet choices. I offer easy to follow plant forward meal ideas and recipes, that make eating healthy WORK FOR YOU!
I truly believe there is no 'one size fits all' approach to diet - and so instead I educate and empower you to eat in a way that supports your best physical and mental health, while also working for your lifestyle and personal/ family needs.
I also believe in the power of intuitive eating and will show you how it can be possible (even if you've never thought it was for you!). We are all our own greatest teachers, and as your nutritionist, I believe my role is to help invoke within you this process of learning from your inner knowing.
Will I have to give up my favourite foods?
No! Not likely! I always do my best to allow flexibility in peoples' protocols.
That being said, there can be undiagnosed food sensitivities, trigger foods, inflammation, or allergies that can further exacerbate health conditions (such as anxiety or digestive issues). If we find this is the case for you - I would recommend you give up said foods (maybe only for a limited time).
However, I always ensure clients have a plethora of delicious and more nutritious alternatives that they truly fall in love with - I really mean it!
Why do your offerings cost the amount they do?
Great question! My rate at $497/ month (3 months minimum) includes bi-weekly sessions (twice per month) along with on going support (aka guidance and encouragement when you need it most). I take the time to educate you on optimal nutrition for your unique needs - whether it be anxiety, digestive issues, hormone imbalances, or if you're looking to find a more peaceful relationship with your body & food. I provide the support you need to get you there!
I work with people for a minimum of 3 months as this is typically the minimum amount of time one will be able to integrate changes into their diet/ lifestyle and begin to see results from doing so. I want to guide you through this process of transformation, to ensure you have the support you need to stick through it.
Believe me when I say, working together is a VERY impactful way to make your health a priority, shift what you know about nutrition, and go beyond what you once thought were the limitations of your body/ mind.
If a 3 month commitment is not something you're able to make right now - I totally get it! This is why I also offer individual sessions. I require you book a minimum of 2 sessions. The first session is an intake session where we'll dive into whats going on for you. Following this session I'll make a personalized protocol for you that I'll send out the week of our session. You can then book a follow up session (as many as you like) to help integrate the protocol and trouble shoot anything that's coming up for you!
I ensure to keep my client load at an amount that allows me to remain fully present, attentive, and energized with everyone I work with. I dedicate tons of time to creating your protocols, personalized meal recommendations, grocery lists, and thinking of other creative ideas to support you in reaching your health goals.
I do my absolute best to hold your hand through this process of transformation because I know how it can be to feel like you're alone in the struggle. In fact, this is why I became a nutritionist in the first place - so fewer people would feel confused, hopeless, alone - the way I once did! Working together, I will assure you this is not the case!
Why work with a nutritionist?
I love this question! If you've never worked with a nutritionist like me before - you're about to be blown away (at least I'm pretty sure of it!).
Working with a nutritionist can provide you with:
- The guidance and encouragement you need to feel truly amazing and at peace with your body, mind, and spirit
- The education you need surrounding our food system & your holistic health - you likely never learned it in school, so it makes sense to be taught it now!
- New found inspiration in the kitchen and at meal times
- Support and encouragement to reach your health goals - like you've probably never had before!
- A knowing that you are heard, seen, respected, and having the power to invoke your inner healing!
- Especially unique to working with me is the completely holistic approach to health in focusing on body, mind, spirit, and your connection to the planet through the food you eat!
- Improvements not only in the areas you intend (such as reduced anxiety, improved gut health, and minimal PMS) but in areas you might never expect! Watch and be amazed 🙂
