Learn to Eat
Do you eat for health or eat for hunger? As a nutrition counselor, I am here to help you make the connection between what you eat and how you feel.
We will work together and if desired in concert with your other health care providers to find natural ways to support, motivate, and guide you to success. Sign up for an in-person, or phone/Skype, consultation to tackle your personal health goals.
Nutrition counseling offers help and hope for every health concern, whether you want to..
- Manage a chronic illness
- Have fewer aches and pains in your back and joints
- Have better digestion
- Manage anxiety and depression
- Conquer eating issues
- Lose weight and rev up your metabolism
- Increase energy and well-being
I practice Holistic Nutritional Counseling – a proven approach that considers environmental factors as well as physical ailments. I use functional lab testing, the latest scientific research, diet journals, targeted supplements, problem-solving techniques, and whole food therapies to help you form new habits and feel better.

- You will receive a personalized eating plan including recipes and suggestions for meals, snacks, and beverages.
