As a Cornell-trained nutritionist I provide an individualized, integrative approach. My philosophy is founded on the principle that being healthy does not require dieting, calorie counting, or rigid meal plans. I can help you create a healthy relationship with food and develop the skills to make mindful decisions.
With extensive knowledge in nutrition science, food technology, and specialized training in food as medicine, I’m eager to help you achieve your desired level of health. I’m often amazed by how much our food choices can make a difference–from improved mood and energy to controlling your weight, managing an autoimmune disorder to correcting digestive disturbances.
Issues addressed include
- Healthy weight change
- Avoidance or management of Diabetes
- Improvement or elimination of gastro-intestinal issues
- Improved cardiac health
- Healthy approach to specific diets (vegan, paleo, gluten-free, etc.)
- Diminished symptoms of fibromyalgia, PCOS, and more
- Anti-inflammatory diet for improved health
- Risk reduction and prevention of chronic disease such as cancer
Whether you choose individual nutrition counseling or to join in one of my small group sessions, my dedication to educating my clients is why I also offer improved grocery lists and supermarket tours, kitchen makeovers, menu analysis, and lunch-and-learn meetings. Personalized nutrition phone consultations are also an option. Your wellness is my priority!
