Nutrition Counseling

I've worked with parents of infants, parents and their children, adolescents, and adults to become healthier - physically and emotionally.  I want you to be the healthiest YOU - and that means enjoying food, respecting and loving your body, and nourishing your body.  There is no perfect diet, no perfect body, and no one way to become healthy.  I will work with you to provide individualized nutrition therapy and find what works for your body, your lifestyle, and your health.  We will set goals together and I can provide you the support and nutrition expertise in helping you reach these goals for yourself and/or your family members.  I want you to leave my office feeling informed and empowered so you can take the next steps. 

First, we can connect on the phone or over email to see if we are the right fit.  If you decide to move forward, we will meet one-on-one for one hour to discuss YOU - your goals, your struggles, and what you need to be successful to reach your goals.  Then we can meet as frequently as we decide together to stay on track and for me to provide you with enough support. 

My Approach

 

When working together, we will set goals together and I can provide you the support and nutrition expertise in helping you reach these health goals for yourself and/or your family members.  I want you to leave my office feeling informed and empowered so you can take the next steps - and I want to support you every step of the way - whether that means offering encouragement, brainstorming meal ideas, or addressing other barriers.  

I believe in the philosophy of Intuitive Eating, which encourages us to follow our inner wisdom, get in touch with our hunger and fullness cues, honor our cravings and our bodies, and apply medical nutrition therapy to fit our lifestyles and medical conditions.  As a Health at Every Size dietitian, I encourage my patients to love and respect their bodies - regardless of size, weight, or BMI.  Both of these approaches are based on the idea that crash diets and yo-yo dieting often leave us feeling frustrated, confused, and disappointed - when it is the diets that are failing us, and not the other way around.  I do not believe in dieting, so I do not recommend restrictive diets or rigid meal plans.  I want to work with you to achieve your goals for yourself and/or your family to live healthy lives with no food stress.
