How do I know if my symptoms are neuroplastic?

There are some medical doctors who are trained to diagnose neuroplastic pain. However, if 1) you have already visited a medical practitioner and ruled out serious conditions that require urgent intervention, and 2) you have already tried various

treatments without success, it is generally safe to try a neural circuit approach.

 

I offer a 60-min comprehensive assessment after you have had an introductory call. Until then, here are a couple resources to help you explore whether your symptoms may be neuroplastic:

How do I get started?

Schedule a free 20 min introductory call with me! We'll share context, talk about the basics of how brain-generated symptoms work, and discuss my approach.

How long will it take for me to heal?

Healing time varies for each person, but the standard recommendation in the field is to check in on progress after 8-12 sessions. I recommend that clients commit to two 1-month packages (8 sessions total). 

Where do we meet?

I meet with all clients virtually. 

How much does it cost?

  • Free 20-minute introductory call - A free chat to share context, learn about the basics of how brain-generated symptoms work, and hear about my approach. 

  • 60-min Assessment ($175) - If you are not confident that your symptoms are neuroplastic, I offer a one-time 60-min comprehensive assessment for $175. During this session we will thoroughly review your past & current chronic conditions and use assessment criteria created by medical doctors to evaluate your symptoms for key neural circuit indicators. Following the session you will receive clear next steps and key resources to get a head start on your healing journey.

  • 1-month package ($500) - 

    • Four 60-min private coaching sessions

    • Follow-up emails with resources and tools for each week

    • 24/7 support via text and voice note between sessions with a 24-hr response time

  • Clients are encouraged to commit to 2 packages (8 sessions) with the option to continue on a session-to-session basis at $125/session

  • My goal is to provide support to as many folks as possible. If finances are a barrier, ask me about sliding scale pricing.

Do you take insurance? 

Unfortunately insurance does not cover coaching.  

What are your qualifications?

I have been certified as a Holistic Life Coach Practitioner and Chronic Pain Recovery Coach by the MindBody Food Institute. I have also received certification in Pain Reprocessing Therapy by the Pain Reprocessing Therapy Center and am listed in their directory of practitioners.

I have had symptoms for many months or years, can this treatment still help me?

The amount of time you have been struggling with symptoms does not determine the amount of healing time. Participants in the Boulder Back Pain Study had on average 11 years of pain, and 66% were pain-free or nearly pain-free at the end of four weeks of intensive treatment. As long as you are open and committed to the process, it does not matter how long you have had symptoms.
