Initial Assessment

During your first visit, Mikaela will sit down with you and gather a thorough history to learn about your current eating habits and lifestyle – the more she understands and knows about you, the better she can help! She will then offer feedback on your current diet, help you to set realistic goals, and provide recommendations to get you started. You will work together on developing a nutrition plan that is right for you, helping you meet your health and wellness goals.

Follow Up Visits:

Follow-up Sessions are used to monitor your progress and provide continued motivation and support. The first will focus on discussing your individualized nutrition plan, while further visits will involve adjusting your plan as required. There will also be a focus on continued education and addressing any additional goals that may arise.

Presentations & Workshops

Mikaela can also come speak to your team, club, group or workplace about nutrition and health. You can choose from a list of general presentation topics, or have a customized session developed based on the interests & needs of everyone. Please contact us if you’d like to further discuss these options!
