Nutrition counseling

You and I are partners on this journey to optimal health through food choices. You come to this path with rich history and experience. You already have everything you need to create wholeness. As a nutrition therapist, and your partner, I hold the space for you of compassion, connection, clarity, and curiosity in your inquiry. So supported, in steady, small steps, you begin to heal and transform your relationship with food.

We have conversation about your needs and from there create a sustainable action plan.

I support you as you connect barriers to change to a toolbox of powerful and effective techniques that lead to successful transformation, as you need. Mindfulness and a myriad of integrative approaches give you the freedom to blend mind, body, and spirit into your approach.

Through exploration of triggers and unconscious behaviors, you’ll discover the ability to identify deep-seated patterns that do not align with your internal and conscious goals. You’ll discover your personal desires and establish realistic expectations and goals. We work together in the effort, and as awareness grows, the change you seek begins to happen. I believe in your ability to do this!

Simple changes in diet and movement can reduce mood swings, regulate blood sugar, increase energy and vitality, find your healthy weight, and improve digestion. We start where you are – if you pick up pre-cooked foods at your market for supper, we focus on the healthiest options there versus cooking at home. We end up where you want to be.

Initial Consultation: We’ll do a full nutrition assessment that includes medical, weight and diet history, eating patterns and preferences, calculating your caloric and nutrition needs, and establishing your plan. Dependent on your needs, we may explore meal planning, food plans, grocery shopping, updating your nutrition knowledge database as needed, food records, how to deal with emotional and stress eating, optimal eating out choices, recipe ideas, or exploring elimination diets for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. We’ll always end with an action plan.

Follow-up Sessions: We’ll review your progress, update your plan as needed, and brainstorm barriers and lifestyle events that occur, like business travel, vacations, holiday meals, and office party birthday cake (may include review of food records and meal plans, revising nutrient intake to reflect weight loss, and cooking tips).
