FREE 20 MINUTE CONSULT
Let's get acquainted
At Underwood Functional Wellness in Luray, VA, we provide a 20 minute complementary session as a brief "getting acquainted" call. This allows me to get an overview of your needs, fill you in on my approach, and determine together if functional wellness is a good fit for you.
This is the information gathering session and lab recommendations.
In this 60-90 minute discovery session, I gather as much information as I can through comprehensive health, diet, lifestyle, medication/supplement history, intake forms, labs, and open dialogue.
I do ask for a lot of information and do our due diligence, so I can make the most informed recommendations possible, customized for you and your goals.
Functional lab testing can be quite expensive and many practitioners want to order a slew of testing right off the bat which is often unnecessary, especially if the results do not alter the recommendations. At Underwood Functional Wellness, I prefer a targeted approach and rely on a thorough intake to guide my lab test recommendations, if any, in order to avoid excessive testing and expense.
Report of findings & recommendations
A lot of information is acquired from the discovery session and labs. From this information, patterns are revealed from seemingly unrelated signs & symptoms, that point us towards systems needing support. In the results review, I will go over these findings, explain how they can impact your mental health, and share a customized plan to get back on track.
In a nutshell, the process at Underwood Functional Wellness includes:
Evaluate progress & course correct as needed.
Re-evaluation is an important assessment of your progress. We determine if you need minimal support moving forward or if we need to course correct based on follow-up evaluation.

Like many who work in the helping professions, shiftwork, staffing issues, and adrenaline surges led to burnout and eventually, depression ,fatigue and unrelenting migraines.
Conventional medicine offered medication which I did try for the migraines but I was really seeking resolution.
Through my own investigation, I discovered
This started my fascination with what other depletions and burdens impact mental wellness so I returned to school and completed my graduate degree in Clinical Nutrition and Functional Medicine.
As a former EMT and coming from a family of Veterans, I have a soft spot for my fellow helpers!
