An Inviting, Non-Judgmental Space to Cultivate Health & Healing For Adults & Children
Personal wellness sessions are in-depth and will address each person's level of health - on physical and emotional basis.  Be prepared for an in-depth conversation in a relaxed atmosphere.  I love to provide an abundance of information, so feel free to have a notebook on hand if you would like to take notes.  In addition - I will provide a full copy of your treatment plan and recommendations to you. 
 
All Video Conference Sessions also include a Video Recording of our session for download to keep indefinitely.
Book your desired Consultation below ~ and I will reach you directly to provide an Intake Document and choose the perfect day & time. 
The Intake Document is completed for our first Visit.  I invite you to take your time and allow space & focus to complete.
This allows me to have a gorgeous picture of YOU as an individual and how Ayurveda may assist in walking a very personal path. 
If you desire a follow up discussion and it has been more than 1 year since our last meeting, I will also provide a 'Follow Up' Intake. 
I am available by appointment only.  Please email me anytime with questions. 
HAPPY TO HAVE A SIMPLE, COMPLIMENTARY PHONE CALL TO INTRODUCE AYURVEDA OR ANSWER QUESTIONS.  
PLEASE BE AWARE OF CANCELLATION POLICY :)

Follow-Up Visits

Here we will discuss changes that have taken place since the implementation of recommendations.

We will discuss the herbal formula (if added to your plan) and improvements or challenges.

We will discuss and address any new symptoms you may be experiencing, answer additional questions, etc.

 

At this time, if you are having any difficulty with implementation, we may devise solutions together.

If you are feeling better, and ready to move forward, I will add additional suggestions to move forward with.

Ongoing suggestions will be focused on pieces of life that are most important to you.

There are times when our focuses shift or suggestions change based on Season.​

During follow ups, we may decide on and schedule additional follow up visits that are tailored to your needs. 

As time goes on, you will have the tools to take an active part in your own health and will need less and less support
from me....OR you may choose to continue to see me for a time frame that suits you best. I am always here for you!

Treatment
Let me stress, any natural form of healing takes time, as well as authentic effort on your part, but should also be done with
respect to where you are now and should be implemented in small stages.
That is why in your treatment program, I offer you small changes in one or two crucial areas, rather than trying to do everything at once, which can shock the system.  Over time, as you comfortably acclimate to the small new habits, we will continue to add in others as pieces and enhancements to build on. This will allow you to support yourself in alignment with creating health.
 
Your unique treatment program is designed to assist you in reducing the doshic imbalance so that your body has the best chance possible to heal itself. At each follow up visit, we evaluate how well you have been implementing your recommendations and you are given assistance with difficult areas.
 
Visits will continue at your comfort level. I am here to assist you with a plan that gives your body strength and
nourishment, so it can release the deeper held heat and old emotional states. We may take things one day at a time!
 
Package Cost includes communications, scheduling, paperwork, research, composition of personalized plan & actual meeting time.
