It is with great pleasure that I share my recommendation of Tina Brockett as she turned my life around in such a profound manner. I had pretty much been cruising through life eating/drinking whatever, whenever I wanted. Then my annual physical presented situations that made me evaluate what I was doing to myself. Pre-diabetic, overweight, poor nutritional balance were the key elements. I mentioned by medical evaluation to my yoga instructor who, without hesitation, recommended I get a meeting with Tina. And am I glad I took the recommendation! During my initial meeting with Tina she put me at ease not only with her engaging personality, but also by talking to me and not above my knowledge level on nutrition. She went on to explain our working relationship and made a clear point that she could provide the plan, but it was up to me to become engaged. It has been a successful partnership ever since. After I completed my evaluation Tina put my plan in place. At first it appeared daunting, I have to admit. But please know, I've never looked back. I'm no longer pre-diabetic with numbers so low my doctor was truly amazed at my turnaround. I took 20+ unwanted pounds off my frame. I have more energy, endurance and positivity. Food is now fuel and balanced with my enjoyment of wine and dark chocolate! Equally important is Tina's ongoing support! She's responsive to my questions be it on protein, greens, wellness, etc. She's always there for me. With great sincerity I encourage you to put your faith in Tina. She's the ultimate knowledgable professional. I'm confident, if you're serious, she will help you just as she has me and others.
Working with Christina has been an integral step in taking more control over my health, and making a real change. She has always been helpful, supportive, and informative, and never comes from a place of judgement or shame. She really makes it a point that your experience a collaborative effort, and makes sure the goals set are reasonable. My journey with Christina has been life changing, very positive, and encouraging! I would recommend Christina to anyone who wants to see a nutritionist to help their health.

About me

I am a board-certified, licensed, integrative, and functional nutritionist and coach. I work with my clients to understand the root causes of their issues so we can work together to develop solutions that will work in their lives. Located in downtown Frederick, I practice both in the office and virtually.

I have a special focus on women's health if for no other reason than I "get it." I am a working mother of two teenagers and understand what it is like to take care of others at the expense of yourself. My clients often come to me depleted. They've gained weight, feel bloated, have digestive issues, and often are fatigued all the time. Sometimes their doctor has told them they are on the edge of needing medication for blood pressure, blood sugar, or high cholesterol. What worked in their early twenties isn't working now, and they don't know what to do. They've tried diet after diet in an attempt to find answers, but the answer is much bigger than that. It is about taking care of the whole person because everything works together, and the older we get, the less we can get by with taking shortcuts. It is about turning around and reclaiming your health through learning new lifelong nutrition and lifestyle habits.

In addition to the work I do in the office, I also found a way to help address two bigger problems in our community: addiction and childhood food insecurity.

As a way to give back to the community and address the growing epidemic of addiction, I also designed a nutrition and integrative health program for addiction recovery. I have been working with this unique population in a group setting for over three years, helping to educate those in recovery on how they can reclaim their health and provide a better path for the recovery process.

I also work with a local coach in the area who founded a food pantry for food-insecure athletes. The idea came out of her personally witnessing anxiety developing from these kids because they simply didn't have the energy to perform well on the field or in the classroom. As a solution, she created a food pantry specifically to fuel student-athletes, which provides them with sport-specific fueling packs, which we designed based on donations obtained from local grocers and private donors.

As you determine your next steps, one of the best things you can do is find a practitioner who will hear your needs and work with you. I would love to speak to you and see how I can help you be successful on your journey to better health.

My Philosophy of Care

I began running "heartbreak hill" in college to shed the "freshman fifteen" and continued to run up until a few years ago. As a runner, I was acutely aware of how my runs were impacted by things like how I slept, if I were stressed or what I ate. However, it wasn't until 2011 that I really began to understand how food and lifestyle factors impact health and the healing process. In the fall of 2011, my mother went to Johns Hopkins to have a brain tumor removed. Instead of being in there for the anticipated four days, she was in the hospital for two weeks. She'd lost a considerable amount of weight due to her inability to eat well. The criteria for discharge was passing a swallowing test; my mother barely passed.

Upon release, I brought her to my home. I remember talking to the social worker asking how I, someone completely untrained, was going to care for my mother. Having to care for my two younger children while working was a lot, but here was someone who could barely swallow, was underweight, and in desperate need of healing. Not one to back down from a challenge, my kitchen became my science lab. I learned what nutrients were needed to help her brain heal and how to support other underlying conditions she had. Over time, she recovered amazingly well, and several months into 2012 was able to move back home and live independently. It was this experience that paved the way for my eventual return to graduate school and an entirely new career.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

My clients often tell me that they experience two things after their first visit with me: they felt "heard," and they had "no idea." In the conventional model, visits are time-constrained and people often don't feel "heard." I make it my job to listen to you; without listening, I cannot dive into the root causes of what may be causing my clients' issues. During my consults, I also spend a lot of time explaining the "whys" behind a recommendation. Many times my clients have heard a recommendation but didn't understand why it was important. I've found if you know the "whys," you are going to be more likely to make the change and be successful.

My Inspiration

We are all different. Different sexes, genetics, lifestyles, family histories; we are all different. Given that, why would anyone think that one solution to a health problem will work well for everyone? I work with my clients to understand their unique conditions and customized solutions with them.
