Whether you are suffering from a chronic illness or simply looking to improve your health, I have the tools to help you optimize your nutrition.
I am accepting new clients again here at Ascent to Health! You can reach me through email at email@example.com or via the “Schedule a Session” tab on this page and my website homepage.
Welcome to Ascent to Health! In my clinical nutrition practice, I help clients overcome chronic disease and build optimal health using strategies informed by cutting-edge scientific research, nutritional biochemistry, and ancestral dietary wisdom. Some of my areas of specialty include the following:
Nutrition is a powerful tool for supporting mental health and cognitive function. My personal experience using nutrition to overcome treatment-resistant depression and anxiety has led me to be quite passionate about this topic! I work with clients on a variety of mental health and cognitive issues, including depression, anxiety, brain fog, and neurobehavioral disorders such as ADD and ADHD.
The health of your gut impacts the well being of your entire body; as such, my clinical nutrition practice is very gut health-oriented. Some of the most common digestive health issues I assist clients with include SIBO and IBS.
Histamine Intolerance and Mast Cell Activation Disorder
Histamine intolerance is one of the most common conditions I see in my clinical nutrition practice, and one with which I have extensive personal experience. I offer a unique approach for correcting histamine intolerance, including a triphasic diet, stress management techniques, and lifestyle changes that quench immune system hyper-reactivity and restore balance to the gut microbiome.
Support for Lyme Disease and Mold Illness
Due to my personal health journey, I am extremely passionate about providing nutritional and lifestyle support for individuals with Lyme disease and mold illness. Using advanced gut microbiome, hormonal, and metabolomic analysis, I create customized nutrition and lifestyle protocols for my clients that enhance detoxification, quench inflammation, and support whole-body recovery.
Nutritional genomics, commonly referred to as “nutrigenomics,” is a field of science that studies the effects of nutrients on the genome, proteome, and metabolome. I employ a systems biology approach to uncover how your body responds to foods and nutrients based on your genetics.
Labs I Use:
Doctor’s Data Comprehensive Stool Analysis uses advanced culture techniques to analyze the composition of your gut microbiota, helping me determine which nutrition, supplement, and lifestyle interventions can best support your gut health and the overall health of your body.
Genova Diagnostics offers multiple tests that I use frequently with my clients, including an organic acids test and genomic testing.
Great Plains Laboratory
Great Plains Laboratory is the purveyors of the GPL MycoTox, a test that assesses for mold and mycotoxin exposure via a sample of urine.
I like to be up-front and transparent about my pricing structure; this allows prospective clients to see exactly what they are paying for when they work with me.
3-Month Nutrition Package: $450
This package includes the following:
One 50-minute initial consult with me. In this consult, we go over your health history, new client questionnaire, and any relevant lab work you would like to share with me. During this consult, I may also suggest additional lab testing such as a NutrEval to assess nutritional status or a GI MAP test to learn more about the state of your gut microbiota.
A customized set of nutrition recommendations and a sample 3-day meal plan. I may also suggest specific supplements if I feel they are necessary. I only use professional-grade supplements in my practice, such as Pure Encapsulations, Pharmax, and Quicksilver Scientific.
Four 15-minute follow-up calls with me over the course of three months. These calls allow us to communicate regularly about how your nutrition protocol is going, and allow me to make changes to your plan as needed.
6-Month Nutrition Package: $775
This plan is ideal for individuals who want to make a long-term commitment to improving their health. Dietary changes often take time to elicit beneficial results, and the length of this program gives us an optimal length of time to implement food and nutrition changes, observe results, and change course as needed.
This package includes the following:
Two 50-minute consults over the course of six months. In the first consult, we go over your health history, new client questionnaire, and any relevant lab work you would like to share with me. During this consult, I may also suggest additional lab testing such as a NutrEval to assess nutritional status or a GI MAP test to learn more about the state of your gut microbiota. In the second and third consults, I’ll check in with you, follow up on your progress, and make adjustments to your nutrition plan as needed.
Three 15-minute follow calls with me over the course of six months.
Unlimited email access to me. This is a great way for you to ask me questions, voice concerns, or send over additional information (new labs, life circumstances that are affecting your health, etc) in between our follow-up calls.
