Customized Nutrition Coaching & Services, Meal Planning & Diabetes Management
Being prescribed heathy lifestyle changes is not a new concept. Back around 400 B.C., Hippocrates, the Greek doctor, stated Let food be thy medicine. So why are there so many of us not doing it?
Restrictive eating, “detoxing”, and fad dietiting is not the answer to healthy living. If you’ve been a victim to dieting, let’s break that vicious cycle.
If you’re searching for a solution, let me coach and support you with customized counseling. You will be able to make lifelong changes, achieve your health goals, and live a happier life. No more crazy food restrictions or unrealistic expectations. If you’re ready for a change, I’m committed to helping you break the cycle of dieting.
As your coach, we will work together by:
• Identify barriers to healthy eating
• Create flexibility in your food choices
• Establish a routine that works for you and your lifestyle
• Address trigger foods and emotions
• Learn mindful eating strategies
As a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, I can translate the science and provide real life guidance.

My Nutrition Philosophy & Coaching Style
I provide client-centered nutrition coaching to address YOUR goals and lifestyle. My approach is to work together to make sustainable changes with balance, diet and exercise. There is not a “one diet fits all”, everyone has unique health needs and goals. Balance and moderation does not mean you have to give up that cookie, glass of wine or slice of pizza!
My counseling is focused on YOU. I coach each client to overcome barriers they’re experiencing with food, exercise and/or disease management. I personalize each session to provide exclusive guidance. Together, we find ways to self-manage and improve quality of life. I believe in mindful eating and having a plan. I base my recommendations off of evidence-based nutrition information and science. I empower patients to become mentally and physically healthy with tools and knowledge!
