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.
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:
One of my passions is using nutrition to improve brain health and function. My areas of interest under the topic of brain health include neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease), depression, anxiety, optimization of cognitive function, ADHD and other neurobehavioral disorders, and learning disorders.
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, food allergies/sensitivities, GERD, candida overgrowth, and histamine intolerance,
Nutritional Support for Lyme Disease and Mold Illness
Due to my personal health journey, I am extremely passionate about providing nutritional support for people with Lyme disease and mold illness. Using advanced gut microbiome, hormonal, and metabolomic analysis, I create customized nutrition protocols for my Lyme and mold clients that enhance detoxification, quench inflammation, and support whole-body recovery.
Labs I Use:
I love using Diagnostic Solutions’ GI Microbial Assay Plus (GI MAP) with my clients. The GI-MAP is a microbial assay that uses cutting-edge, quantitative PCR (qPCR) to assess your microbiome with attention to bacterial, parasitic, and viral pathogens that can disrupt microbial balance and contribute to digestive system dysfunction and chronic disease.
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.
