A Message from Doc
On his favorite part about his job…
My most successful and favorite project is the satisfaction that I see in the faces of the clients of mine who have put in the work. They have explored and taken inventory of both their assets and deficits, related to body, mind, and nutrition, made the difficult, but necessary lifestyle changes, and claimed the successes that they deserved.
On keeping his clients happy and satisfied…
The best strategy is to provide the client with what s/he needs. Our physical health and wellbeing is directly correlated with what we think and feel, and both of these are impacted directly, either positively or negatively, by our relationship to food. Having access to a professional that includes and addresses these continuously throughout the provision of services makes all of the difference in the world.
On what inspires him…
Having spent over 30 years in the health care field, I was always struck by the fact that the majority of my clients sought out professional services piecemeal. What I mean is that they would have a multitude of complaints: physical, mental, social, nutritional, and emotional; all of which contributed to their struggle, yet they would bounce around from one specialist to another. Making matters more frustrating for them, in this process they would/could only focus upon one complaint at a time, even though they all played a dynamic synergistic effect. The greatest challenge was designing a system of change that incorporated all of these factors and addressed them all simultaneously. I have now expanded my services to include a “one-stop shopping” experience that utilizes my skill-set as a mental health professional, sports nutritionist, and personal trainer. By doing such, each client will receive an individualized “holistic” assessment with specifically-designed interventions, upon which definitive and measurable results will be achieved.
