Become my patient
Let me tell you about my patient Jill.
Julie was a middle-aged professional suffering from anxiety, fatigue, poor sleep and digestive discomfort. She did not like the side effects of the medication she was on for anxiety and she called me to see how an individualized nutrition plan could help her. After listening to her story and running a few lab tests, I pinpointed several food sensitivities and nutritional deficits and discovered that her diet was actually making her anxiety worse. Jill and I spent 90 minutes on the phone and I designed for her a personalized food and supplement plan. We then met for 30 minutes each week for several weeks to help her get off to a strong start while making these changes.
Within 2 weeks of eating per my plan, Jill noticed an overall improvement and reduction in anxiety. Within 8 weeks, she was off her medication. When we checked in again at the 6-month mark, Julie was energized, her anxiety was gone, she was sleeping better and she also reported that she felt much happier and felt like she had purpose again. Jill and I continue to touch base every 6 months to “tweak” her protocol as we work to help her achieve optimal wellness.
Julie is just one of the thousands of people I care for, with whom I have consulted during my 40+ years of personalized clinical work.
I have become known for cracking the tough cases – people who have tried EVERYTHING to improve their energy vitality and mental well-being. I was honored to help Julie and I welcome hearing from you to support your path toward feeling great.
How does it work?
I consider you, the WHOLE PERSON when creating a health plan for you.
I use a scientific approach to nutrition to improve your mental health and cognitive function and use proven protocols that will work with your lifestyle. Because I am an expert in treating both mind and body I work with you to prioritize the changes you want to make, at the pace that feels right for you.
I take time, listen to your story, and review what you’ve tried so far. I am an expert diagnostician, with more than 50,000 hours of work with clients where I’ve been able to pinpoint problems and their solutions when others have not.
One way I do this is by conducting specialized lab tests and giving you a verbal and written report of my findings and recommendations. I am available to provide first and second opinions about your health. If you have a complex issue, possibly involving trauma or chronic illness, and haven’t gotten satisfactory results or help elsewhere – we need to talk!
We will work together to design a comprehensive, science-based program delivered with the old-fashioned art of time and personal care.
Are you suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, fatigue, addictions, or chronic pain? Maybe you just can’t shake the “blahs.” Or maybe you’ve lost your edge. Possibly you feel like you’re on the edge all too often. Consider me your health activist.
My recommendations may include nutritional therapies, herbal medicine, somatic therapies, natural detoxification, talk and coaching, or specific exercises to maintain and restore mental health and physical health naturally.
After following my protocol, you will sleep better, have more energy, feel more balanced in mood, be more productive, and stay on your competitive edge. If your goal is to reduce or eliminate pharmaceuticals we will include that in our planning. (Take note - I provide only nutritional and herbal support to do so and I encourage you to make changes in your medications ONLY after consulting with your prescriber.)
What does my process look like?
After taking and analyzing a comprehensive history during my first client session, I may recommend specialized, non-invasive lab tests, such as:
- Tissue Mineral Analysis (Hair analysis of mineral status, ratios, metabolic function, and heavy metal toxicity)
- Comprehensive blood and salivary testing for biological stress, hormones, inflammatory markers, and imbalances contributing to poor health
- Nutrient and fitness genetic testing to optimize genetic, nutritional, and fitness potential
- Food allergy and sensitivity tests
After receiving lab results, I then provide clients with a comprehensive written map for step-by-step changes, which may include food, nutritional, and herbal supplementation, detoxification, fitness, and bodywork methods to optimize mental and physical well-being.
I have witnessed my methods work for thousands of my own clients and students, and I am confident they can benefit you and your clients as well.
I do not accept people who are suicidal or psychotic. I also do not provide primary care or primary psychotherapeutic care. I encourage you to have these supports in place. I am always happy to consult with your prescriber.
I do tele-health communicating via phone and video for my clients in the United States and internationally. As you proceed on your program, I guide you via phone or video check-ins every 2 weeks (or as needed) to help you overcome obstacles and achieve optimal physical and mental well-being.
I am available for in-person consults and somatic psychotherapy and polarity therapy treatment in Puerto Vallarta.
