Initial Nutrition Consultation (60 minutes)

Our initial consultation will involve an in-depth assessment of your current medical history, nutritional status, intake/diet trends, medical labs, vitamin/protein supplement regimens and lifestyle behaviors. We will explore your current and past relationship with food, discuss stress areas that may be inhibiting you from reaching your goals and address any questions you may have. We will also review what you want to get out of our sessions and establish an action plan utilizing functional and integrative nutrition principles that are unique to you.

Follow-Up Session (30-45 minutes)

We will address any challenges you face and ensure you have the tools and knowledge to overcome them as you make positive changes to your lifestyle. As we progress through each of your sessions we will make any necessary adjustments deemed most effective in an innovative and empowering way.

To encourage optimal results, we highly recommend that all new Ikigai Nutrition clients include at least one follow-up nutrition counseling session in addition to the initial consultation.  We understand change isn’t easy, together we can guide you on your journey to a healthier self. We will help you look beyond the conventional diet methods and end the endless cycle of yo yoing effects on your body and emotions. By working together we will ensure that you live a life fulfilled.
