Consulting – A Path Forward
Choose the kind of support you need.
Whether you have a clear goal or just know you want to make changes, we can determine your next best steps. I supervise and counsel many of my clients on a diet they choose or an eating plan we create together. Others see me to get lots of questions answered that help steer them in their choices of foods, supplements, practitioners and diagnostic tests. Healthcare coaching is woven throughout our sessions as needed.

Even an apparently healthy diet can include foods and habits that don’t support your health. You may be eating in ways that undermine your daily well-being, interfering with good energy, mental clarity, and emotional stability. Troubleshooting your diet means looking at when and what you eat, including inflammatory foods, food combinations, balance of protein and carbs, quality of foods and supplements, and any habits or triggers that undermine your best intentions. Identify and solve your unique challenges in the daily job of feeding yourself!
Healing a Condition
Stuff happens to our bodies! Injuries. Illness. Surgeries. Our bodies work to heal, but they don’t always have the right conditions and raw materials to return to full, healthy functioning. A plan of specific foods, home treatments and supplements can greatly aid successful healing. Conditions range from constipation, restless legs, and post-surgery to depression, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Healing plans address key issues such as inflammation, circulation, specific nutrient levels, food sensitivities, immunity status, and any wound healing needed.
I work with all conditions but have a special interest in these.

I schedule appointments by phone only. Other than a recommended minimum of 90 minutes for the first session, you choose the amount of time you want to schedule. You have the option to meet with me by phone or Zoom.
Common session times are:
- First session – 90 min to 2 hrs
- First follow-up session – 60 to 90 min
- Further follow-up sessions – 30 to 60 min
Fees and Policies
My hourly rate is $80. I offer a package of 3 hours for $210, bringing the hourly rate to $70. This package usually covers the first 2 sessions or 2-3 follow-up sessions.
I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, with a charge of $50 for a late cancellation or missed appointment without notice or reason of emergency. Notice of cancellation must be given by phone or text and not by email. Call or text 541-728-8667.
Pay by check, PayPal or direct deposit system. Payment is due on the day of your session or within five business days if you’re sending a check. Please talk with me ahead of time if you need special payment arrangements.
Unfortunately, insurance companies began removing coverage for nutrition counseling long before the Affordable Care Act. Only a few insurance policies cover my services. If your policy covers nutrition counseling, I’ll provide you with a coded statement for reimbursement.
It’s important that we determine if I’m a good fit for your needs. Please contact me by phone or text to arrange a 20-minute phone call or Zoom visit so we can discuss your needs. If either of us decide I’m not the right fit for you, I’ll offer suggestions for what your best next steps and practitioners may be. My mobile number is 541-728-8667.
