Information for Patients

From the practitioner: About My Practice

Janell’s clients are adults and children with cancer and complex illness. She’s been in clinical practice for 14 years as a nutrition coach/counselor and licensed massage therapist. Using a systems biology-based approach to personalized nutrition, Janell works closely with her clients and, if appropriate, their physicians to identify and address the root causes of their most chronic conditions using diet, nutrition, and lifestyle. Janell’s integrative and functional medicine/nutrition practice is an expression of her love for people, life, and heart-centered health care. She lives to serve others, believes that hope conquers fear, and has an unshakeable faith in her clients’ ability to experience hope, healing, and vitality.

From the practitioner: What Patients Can Expect

Upon scheduling, you’ll be asked to complete a comprehensive intake questionnaire to be returned to our practice, along with any recent laboratory assessments. Janell will thoroughly review your intake before she meets with you. During your appointment, Janell will listen to you and gather additional details about your health and life story, as well as your hopes for the future. She’ll also perform a comprehensive functional nutrition evaluation and physical exam. Janell will work closely with you, and if appropriate, your physicians, to identify the root causes of your current health concerns and to develop with you a functional diet, nutrition, and lifestyle plan designed to nourish hope, health, and healing.
