From an experiential perspective, what makes my programs different from other health and nutrition services (e.g. dietician, nutritionist, doctor, Weight Watchers)?

You can expect your program and support to be…


  • Individualized.   There is no one magic way of eating that works for everyone.  We are all different, special.  Working together we will find the solutions which are customized for your unique body, health history, goals, lifestyle, and preferences.

  • Achievable and Sustainable.  I do not believe in diets or rigid meal plans to force quick results.  While most dietitians dwell on calories, restrictions, and lists of good and bad foods, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial. I offer step-by-step, gradual changes allowing clients time to experiment with and adjust to new habits, so they are more likely to remain long-term changes.  You get results and, more importantly, ones you can sustain.

  • Natural.  We focus on the body’s ability to heal itself given natural, simple food, supplements, recreation, and stress management choices. 

  • Scientifically Sound.  Our body is always seeking wellness.  If we are unwell, there is a reason – a true root cause.  I help my clients to understand and address the root causes.  I often work in partnership with clients’ physicians for more extensive medical testing to help uncover the root causes of their discomfort and disease.

  • Fun and Flexible.  Laughter, tolerance, creativity, and room for trial-and-error are a key part of client support.  We experiment and find what works rather than we discard and move on to another solution.

  • Realistic.  Life-long habits have to have room for indulgence and “real life” circumstances.  I also believe guilt does not have a helpful place in maintaining health.  Understanding and empathy for clients is balanced with high expectations and personal accountability.

  • Positive.  We don’t focus on deprivation and denial.  I believe food is to be savored and relished as an enjoyable part of life.  I focus on adding positive, healthy, and healing foods, behaviors, and activities to a person’s life.  This approach effectively “crowds out” the negative and unhealthy.

  • Empowering. I believe we are all capable of managing our own health and wellness.  My goal is for each client to discover and learn healthy habits and skills they may use effectively on their own for the rest of their lives.
