Information for Patients

From the practitioner: About My Practice

I combine a skill-set from my 34-year practice as a Registered Dietitian with Functional Medicine to treat clients. To find the root cause of health problems, the first step is a Comprehensive Functional Nutrition Assessment where I explore lifelong history, lifestyle, environmental exposures, medical/social/genetic factors, diet, and nutrition status. From the assessment I assist clients in developing a Nutrition and Lifestyle Action Plan. In addition to education and counseling, clients receive assessment results/recommendations; health-promoting lifestyle intervention goals; targeted therapeutic foods/supplements; an individualized diet plan, sample menu, recipes; and nutrition/health information.

From the practitioner: What Patients Can Expect

Clients must be ready to make changes in their lifestyle and/or diet. The approach to healing or weight loss is through a whole, clean diet; movement; mindfulness; healthy lifestyle, and targeted supplements and foods as needed. Teri will assist the client in making changes in a comfortable, step-wise approach that are achievable. Clients are expected to work together with Teri to define their goals for diet and lifestyle change and health improvement. The attainment of a positive outcome is dependent in large part upon the attitude and effort of the patient. Follow up may be needed to obtain a favorable result and complex chronic health problems often take a commitment for change from the individual, a team effort, and time.
