I believe nutrition is the most powerful tool for achieving optimal health and vitality, however navigating the complex world of diet and nutrition can be daunting. As your nutritionist, I will listen carefully to your story to analyze and determine what changes are necessary for YOU. I am here to provide ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes to improve your health and happiness.
Instead of creating lists of restrictions with “bad” foods, I counsel my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and strict discipline.
A personalized approach
Each client program has a bio-individual, comprehensive approach to making changes to diet and lifestyle habits. This–along with focused, ongoing support for implementing individual dietary programs is essential for success.
No one diet works for everyone; I believe in individualized nutrition. As your nutritionist, I will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. I will also help you make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.
My clients learn to:
- Understand how diet and lifestyle affect current symptoms
- Shop for and prepare healthy meals easily
- Manage stress with ease
- Avoid gastrointestinal upset from foods and build a healthy gut
- Find alternatives to replace foods that cause adverse reactions
- Manage food cravings
- Incorporate a health routine that fits into your life instead of adding more stress
My Pillars for Health
A food first approach, always
"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." Using food as medicine is the quickest way to improve our health and focusing on nutrition is essential to our health and wellbeing. We will use targeted, nutrient-rich whole foods to support the body’s ability to heal while addressing and removing offending foods that are causing symptoms.
Bring your body back into balance
When our body gets out of balance, we begin experiencing symptoms. Symptoms are the body’s natural expression in an attempt to deal with underlying imbalances. Getting to the root of WHY and identifying symptoms helps guide me to a truer understanding of what is going on. When these underlying causes are addressed, long-term healing can occur.
Treat the whole person
As mentioned above, symptoms are the result of underlying causes that may stem from a variety of sources. Factors that contribute to any illness may include lifestyle, dietary and environmental factors, emotional and spiritual stress, genetic influences, as well as organ systems that are not functioning optimally. In order to achieve resolution of any health concern, all of these areas must be addressed.
What is nutritional therapy?
Nutritional therapy is a science-based approach which seeks to identify the root causes of symptoms and addresses underlying imbalances so that the client can achieve and maintain optimal health. Rooted in bio-individuality and understanding that every body is unique, all plans and protocols are customized for the client’s current needs and include diet, mindset and lifestyle recommendations in order to promote optimal wellness. This is not a quick fix! True healing takes time and commitment.
How is it different from other programs?
I take a bio-individual approach with each client I see - there is no one-size fits all approach when it comes to nutrition. I take a holistic approach to health because everything in our bodies is connected. I work to restore clients health with a food-first approach while bringing all areas of the body back into balance. I believe that food IS medicine, and by eating nutrient-dense whole foods, making lifestyle changes, and reducing stress, we can provide the nutrients our bodies are deeply craving to function optimally!

Will I have to follow a specific diet?
I personally do not like to use the word diet as it tends to be overly restrictive. When working with clients I like to see how you are currently eating and what we can add in to better support your overall health. If there is any specific type of food protocol used, it will be used therapeutically for only a short period of time. I believe that when it comes to food, if our focus is on nutrient-dense, whole foods - no specific diet is needed. Elimination methods may be used to identify and address potential food sensitivities - this would be short term.
How long can I expect to reach my health goals?
It all depends on what the root cause of your symptoms is. I typically work with clients for a minimum of 3 months, so you can expect to start there. For many clients, 3-6 months is enough time to make progress, but it can be longer depending on the individual.
