Approach to care

Peggy believes in an individualized, comprehensive, and holistic approach to care. She believes that the people she consults with are the experts on their lives and lifestyle goals, and that she is there to guide them on their journey to success - a "team approach" to healthcare. She uses evidence-based research to ensure the highest quality guidance, and motivational interviewing techniques to assist people in setting long and short term goals that they can reach.

Your first session with Peggy

To begin, Peggy will start by asking the most important question - what you would like to focus on during the nutrition consults. All consults are individualized and focused on your specific lifestyle habits and patterns. She will take a comprehensive lifestyle and medical history and review these with you in detail. From there, you will set the short term goals you would like to accomplish prior to the next consult, and evaluate how confident you are that you can reach them. At follow up visit, you will assess your progress and continue discussing other short term goals that will ultimately help you reach your long term goal.
