My Process


Once you have been scheduled for your initial intake, you will be sent an extensive health intake form.

As this form is quite detailed, please set aside some time to fill it out in the days approaching your appointment.

(60 – 90 MINUTES)

Please bring your intake forms, consent forms, and copies of any recent blood work or imaging tests. 
The goal of the first appointment is for me to get to know you, your medical history, and your current health concerns, and to discuss the goals and expectations you have for our work together.. A complaint-oriented physical exam may be performed at this time, additional laboratory testing may be recommended and you will receive treatment recommendations.

(30 – 60 MINUTES)

Generally scheduled four weeks later, the second visit may include a review of any testing completed after your first visit, a physical exam and answers any questions that have come up from the first visit. Once the medical history and physical exam have been completed, we will establish a personalized treatment plan that contains short- and long-term goals for your health.

(30 – 60 MINUTES)


The time between return appointments depends on your individual health and our therapeutic plan. For example, if we are working with Menopausal Hormone Therapy, we will check in more frequently in the first 6 months while we establish optimal dosing. Or if we are working with spirit level acupuncture we may check in monthly or seasonally as we work with deeper emotional or spiritual concerns. 

Ideally through our work together you gain a deeper understanding of yourself, have tools to maintain optimal health and to support your system in times of acute illness. I work with people throughout their lives, different seasons may require different levels of support.  Someone on a health maintenance program may come in once every season for a check-in twice each year. Or you may be going through a difficult period in your life and come in more frequently at that time.
