I only work with clients 1:1 who are completely committed to the process and understand that bringing the body back into balance is not an overnight process and generally takes 6-18 months. I believe that It is important that there is a good fit between the two of us…some personalities and styles do not work well together and that is OK.
While I am loving and supportive, I am also very direct and honest and that style is not for everyone. I support, but do not coddle.
I also want to be upfront about the fact that I believe it is VERY hard to achieve optimal health without consuming at least some high quality animal protein on a weekly basis. I was plant-based for 3.5 years, so I do have personal experience with the health decline that oftentimes follows even when “doing everything right” (I was trained in plant based nutrition through Cornell).
If we do decide that we are a good fit, I want you to understand that I believe each and every client has their own individual needs. Your protocols are created specifically for you (no cookie-cutter programs) in order to facilitate bringing your body back into balance so it can do the work of restoring health and balance.
Unfortunately, this process is costly and I want you to know that before you begin. You may need on average $200 – $500 worth of supplements per month during the healing phase. Bloodwork is required prior to our first appointment at a cost of about $225 and recommended approximately every 6 months at a cost of $150-225 (additional specialty labs may be recommended). I also like my clients to have bioresonance testing done.

As a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) with a Functional Assessment Specialty (Why there is an extra “F” and not just NTP), I believe it is crucial to teach the importance of properly prepared, nutrient-dense, whole foods diets as a means to help your body function as it was designed to. Through working together we can help bring your body into balance. As someone who is able to thrive with four autoimmune diseases and who has recovered from extreme Mitochondrial / Adrenal Fatigue, I know what you are going through.
There is no one perfect diet that works for everyone because we are all individuals with different histories and genetics. While some people thrive on a diet relatively low in fats and high in carbohydrates, others function best on high fat and low carb diets. I was taught to focus on the concept of bio-individuality. As an FNTP I am trained to help each client find the right types of whole foods that will restore balance and enhance their ability to heal.
Although wellness-minded doctors appreciate the importance of proper diet and nutritional supplementation, it is often very difficult for them to do the proper evaluation and dietary counseling necessary to support optimal functioning due to time constraints. FNTPs are trained to work alongside these practitioners to support the doctors’ diagnosis’ and therapies.
Health is a journey and not something that happens overnight. If you would like to work with me, I ask for a 6-18 month commitment. I am not interested in working with clients for 1-3 months because that is not enough time for the body to find balance. In general, it takes 1 month for every year that you have been unwell.
- Initial Session: $300.00 + bloodwork (see below; now required for the initial session), preliminary questionnaires (extensive), background research (generally takes me 1-2 hours), virtual appointment (HIPAA compliant). The appointment is 60-90 minutes in length and includes blood chemistry interpretation, but does NOT include the cost of the bloodwork itself.
- Follow-Up Sessions: $150.00 Sessions are up to 15-45 minutes in length (sometimes they’re fast and sometimes lengthy) and are done via virtual appointment.
- CONSULTATIONS: $175.00 This session is up to 60 minutes in length.
- You have me for the 60 minutes and can use my time how it best suits you. This is a great option for a person who feels stuck in their health journey and needs ideas about possible avenues to explore. This session does NOT come with a protocol.
- Fellow practitioners may also book a session with me if they would like to discuss business practices or need some advice about client protocols, etc.
BLOOD CHEMISTRY INTERPRETATION
Typically lab ranges are based on the sickest of the sick and do not reflect the functional ranges we want to strive for when chasing optimal health. I have been trained to look at blood work and see possible red flags that most other practitioners haven’t been trained to see. Please note that the cost of the Bloodwork Interpretation appointment does NOT include the cost of the bloodwork itself.
This appointment is intended to give you direction with regards to what “may” be going on and is not intended to diagnose; FNTPs do not diagnose. This appointment also does not come with specific protocols or supplement recommendations. If you are interested in suggested protocols or supplements, you will need to book an Initial Session.
- Blood Chemistry Interpretation: $175.00 This is a virtual appointment (HIPAA compliant) that generally runs 30-45 minutes in length.

MFT ENERGY TESTING

BALANCED HEALTH SCAN INTERPRETATION
Balanced Health scans use bioenergetic testing, which has the ability to read the energetic resonance that flows from hair and saliva samples. Bioresonance measures the energetic balance or imbalance to various factors. This testing is not completed in a medical laboratory. It is a non-invasive energetic analysis that has the ability to detect stress. Bioenergetic testing measures the body’s energetic reaction to various substances. It is in no way meant to be replaced as a substitute for traditional testing that uses blood/urine/stool samples. Balanced Health highly recommends that you consult with your medical doctor if you wish to have traditional testing.
Here’s how it works: Once you order your preferred scan, they send out a collection kit and instructions to your house which you then return with a hair sample and saliva sample. I know those of you experiencing hair loss worry about using hair for the testing, but rest assured you can use hair from ANYWHERE on your body (including the hair from your hairbrush). Once they begin scanning, they analyze the digital energy of the hair and saliva that will be depicted in your report. Balanced Health then emails you that your results are ready on your dashboard.
- Balanced Health Interpretation appointment: $125.00 This is a virtual appointment (HIPAA compliant) that runs up to 45 minutes in length.
The FULL SCAN is the most comprehensive option and what I recommend starting with. The scanning they do provides a wide range of insights, including levels of bioenergetic stress within your system performance, nutritional and hormonal imbalances, general categories of resonating toxins, food and environmental sensitivities along with a balancing regimen.
The PRENATAL SCAN provides expecting mothers with information on their bioenergetic health, including approximately 350 resonating food and environmental sensitivities as well as any energetic imbalances in key vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and fatty acids.
The REMEDY SCAN helps take the guesswork out of choosing remedies by examining exactly what remedies best balance with your hair and saliva. This may consist of herbs, homeopathic remedies, and nutritional supplements. The benefit of this scan is to keep costs down in between full scans and continue on a balancing regimen.
The BALANCING SCAN includes a bioenergetic hormonal and nutritional imbalance scan, a general category of resonating toxins, and a balancing regimen that may include herbs, homeopathy, and Nutritionals.
The SENSITIVITY SCAN is designed to help hone-in on specific energetic, environmental, and food sensitivities. They bioenergetically scan your hair and saliva samples against nearly 350 potential environmental and food sensitivities.
The DIETARY SCAN provides health-conscious individuals information about their bioenergetic health, including approximately 350 resonating food and environmental sensitivities as well as any energetic imbalance in key vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and fatty acids.

PLEASE NOTE THAT QUESTIONNAIRES FOR YOUR INITIAL APPOINTMENT MUST BE TURNED-IN 3 BUSINESS DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT (I NEED TIME TO SUFFICIENTLY REVIEW). IF NOT, YOUR APPOINTMENT WILL BE CANCELLED & I WILL REFUND YOU $175 OF THE $225 APPOINTMENT FEE (THERE WILL BE A $50 FEE FOR MY TIME).
IN MY EXPERIENCE, IF SOMEONE IS NOT ABLE TO TURN THEIR PAPERWORK IN ON TIME, THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COMMIT TO THE LIFESTYLE CHANGES THAT ARE BE NECESSARY. CHANGE IS HARD AND YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE UP FOR IT.
