What is Health Consulting for Individuals?

Here's What We Do Better

Health often feels unattainable and with all of the conflicting information out there, it’s extremely difficult to separate the fact from the fiction when you have no foundational knowledge to reference to. This is where health consulting can become an invaluable resource.

As your health consultant, I will be assisting you in navigating your health and defining what health, fitness, and well-being means to you through a positive, affirming, shame-free approach. My goal is to provide you with advice and tools to build a foundation of knowledge that will empower you with:

  • the confidence in making decisions regarding your health
  • advocating for yourself at any healthcare appointments you may have
  • finding evidenced-based resources for any health conditions you may have 
  • starting or sticking to an exercise program
  • de-stigmatizing your relationship around negative health beliefs that create distorted perceptions towards your relationship with your body, nutrition, and exercise
  • the ability to implement modifications in your life for optimal movement
  • understanding and loving your body at every stage its in
  • AND improving your quality of life by teaching you HOW to REACH YOUR HEALTH GOALS.

Due to time constraints in the traditional medical model, you are often told what you should be doing, without much guidance on how, which can lead to feelings of shame, confusion, and anger. Deconstruct Health Individual Health Consulting services strays away from this model, by helping you with HOW to implement positive changes in your life through a client-centered and led approach. I will work in tandem with your healthcare team and supplement the care they provide you, by helping you implement their expert advice into your daily routine. 

I am not here to force you to do something you have no interest in doing. What I am here for is be your guide and confidant in navigating your journey towards better health; however, you may define it. 

When working with Deconstruct Health, you can feel comfortable knowing you are working with a health consultant with a doctoral level education in physical therapy with a broad range of experiences in working with individuals with neuromusculoskeletal pathologies, disabilities, and chronic medical conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome 
  • Acute/Sub-acute/Chronic Low Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Type 1/Type 2 Diabetes
  • Post-Stroke
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Sports injuries
  • Muscle, Tendon, Ligament and Joint Pain (neck, back, ribs, pelvis, shoulder, wrist, elbow, hand, hips, knee, ankle, foot) 
  • Post-Operative (Total Joint Replacements, Ligament Repairs, Muscle/Tendon Repairs, Arthroscopic debridements, Spinal Fusions) 
  • Headaches 

Unlike most health professionals, my background in sociology and lived experiences as a queer person of color with a chronic condition provides me with an understanding of the potential impacts of how the intersections of your identities may be affecting your health and preventing you from getting the care that you need. My method takes analyzing your health beyond the physical, because health is mutli-facted and encompasses our psychological, emotional, and social well-being, as well as the impact of our environmental surroundings.

Through working together, I will help you find a deeper connection with yourself so that you can become more confident and knowledgeable in making decisions for your own health, in order to reclaim ownership and control of YOUR BODY!
