INDIVIDUAL PLANS

 

 

I offer support for individual members of your family or for yourself.

In all cases, I tailor everything to your specific needs. These sessions can be done in person or virtually.

 

The Initial Session – 90 Minutes

If you are ready to improve the nutrition and health of your child or teen, I want to personally work with you and your family. I will show you easy, proven solutions to your concerns and share my strategies that have helped hundreds of families. In our initial session, we will discuss your health concerns. I want to understand your child’s life around food. From this I will begin to help you make the necessary shifts through education and discussion.  You may likely need a follow up session to further educate and assist you in order to reach your specific goals.

 

Three’s A Charm – 3 Session Plan

Making that nutrition and lifestyle shift takes support and time to listen and educate. Just as your child or teen needs a coach to excel at their sport or hobby, often you and your child needs support and guidance to make the healthy shift you so desire.

The 3 session package allows us to dive deeper and have a chance to shift habits and mindset for improved health. This support is designed to take the burden off of you and give you the solution you and your kids need. In addition to the initial session, we have more time to discuss meal and snack options, mindful eating, the difference between physical and emotional hunger and some parent-child communication tips. You will begin to gain a deeper understanding of how to nourish for long term health.

6 Session Plan for Lasting Health

 

I’ve worked with hundreds of families and spent years figuring out what works and what doesn’t work to help you improve your family’s health. After the initial momentum of the first 3 sessions, let’s go to the next level to help you and your child or teen stay the course, feel inspired and create lasting great health. In this program, you will receive 3 additional personalized sessions over an additional 60 day period. Why is this important? I know you need time to implement the recommendations provided and you need continued support along the way. In my experience of working with the healthcare team at the California Center for Healthy Living, we found that this continuity of care is what made the difference between good ideas not fully implemented and lasting results that decrease your stress and inspire long-lasting results. Our extended time together gives you an opportunity to solidify important lifestyle changes by addressing them in real life situations, whether it is time to explore more meal and snack options to keep the kids from getting bored, meal planning and preparation support, shifting communication and parenting around food and feeding, addressing challenges that arise through life events, shifting family dynamics around food, challenges with school meals, falling back into old eating patterns, breaking emotional eating habits, or anything else specific to you. My goal is to help you raise healthy competent eaters so they can have a lifetime of good health.

 

In addition to our sessions together, you will receive my personal cell phone to call with any questions you may have. You can also schedule short phone check-ins in between sessions when you need it most. You will also have access to my recipe catalog full of great recipes that I have collected over many years.
