If your interested in a personal consultation, I am there for you just use my contact information. Right now, there is no charge for any sessions for all interested. As I need to get more clinical experience so I can sit for National Certification to be Board Certified in Health and Wellness Coaching. We can do it by Skype, Facetime, or if your local I can meet you where you deem fit. Top Notch Quality Customer Service is my Goal. If your not satisfied please let me know so I can fix whatever is wrong, I won't get offended as I like Constructive Criticism. If you so desire though, you can donate funds or help me navigate the waters in getting this group to be non-profit with the State of Virginia. As so many people in Central Virginia deal with Gastro-intestinal issues from various causes and they need more help sometimes to get through life's rocky periods.
