Welcome to my scheduling page!
Here are a few general things to know about working with me:
- My expertise comes from four years of formal study of the gut microbiome as part of my Ph.D. in Nutritional Sciences and over seven years of intensive independent study of the scientific literature. This is complemented by an understanding of functional/integrative medicine principles from my own health journey, my time working with Chris Kresser, and my experience working with clients over the last five years.
- I am not a licensed medical doctor and am not meant to replace your family physician, gastroenterologist, dermatologist, or any other healthcare provider. During your consult, we will discuss the evidence for certain interventions and I will offer suggestions to help you achieve your health goals.
- I am very good at analyzing your health data and providing you with useful information and direction. I am not as good at providing motivation, support, or accountability. Due to high volume, I am unable to provide email support between appointments.
- My consultations are best suited to those who already have the major health behaviors in place (i.e. eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, prioritizing sleep, managing stress, etc.). If you don’t have these lifestyle factors in place, I highly recommend working with a health coach prior to consulting with me.
How to book a consult:
Step 1: Complete the waiver (required)
Follow this link to complete my informed consent & consulting waiver. I cannot consult with you until this form is submitted. If you have already signed this waiver for a previous appointment, you do not need to sign it a second time.
Step 2: Choose an available time slot
Complete the form below to schedule your appointment. You will receive an email confirmation and have the option to add the appointment to your calendar.
Due to other commitments, I am currently only able to offer a few slots for consultations per week. If you do not see any times available, I am currently completely booked. New times are added every few weeks.
Step 3: Send me relevant test results (optional)
Please send me up to but no more than three test results that you’d like me to review during your appointment in a single email to [email protected]
For Thorne test results, please send me a PDF of the consumer report (use File -> Print to PDF) and the raw data, which can be downloaded as a .csv file (under the “Test Results” tab, click “Download” on the top right and then select “Full Microbe Community”)
Step 4: Show up to your appointment!
You’re all set! I’ll either meet you at the zoom link provided in your email confirmation or call you at your allotted time.
