After many years of struggling with weight issues, I have finally been able to manage my weight due to Denise’s impeccable knowledge in nutrition and weight management skills. Denise has helped me tremendously in accessing a healthy diet regimen that works for me. Denise is friendly, professional, and highly skilled in her field.
Denise has helped me figure out all the digestion and absorption issues i had for years. She was able to solve my hormone issues with diet adjustments and a couple of supplements.
After a sudden and seemingly unexplainable weight loss, Denise has patiently walked me though months of steps to slowly regain the weight I lost. Her dedication to my case is indefatigable, and she has looked down just about every possible avenue to unearth ideas, things to try, articles to read. She keeps in mind other health issues that I have, and adjusts accordingly. She listens (and hears) and is never short on encouragement. Not only do I feel like I have a personal cheerleader, but I also have a new friend. Am eternally grateful!

About me

I have a BS in Human Development from Cornell University and and MS in Applied Physiology and Nutrition from Columbia University. I completed my dietetic internship in 2000 and I am a registered dietitian (RD). Because I believe in an individual approach to health, I became certified in functional medicine. Additionally, I am a personal trainer, since I believe optimal health combines diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. I specialize in GI issues, the gut-brain axis, and weight loss, but I often work with autism, ADHD, anxiety, diabetes, fibromyalgia, heart disease, and hormonal issues.

My Philosophy of Care

I decided to become a dietitian when I lived in London, England in the 1990s. At that time, it was difficult to find access to healthy foods and I was eating poorly and not feeling well. I decided to change my lifestyle and eating habits and was stunned at how much better I felt. I was passionate then about helping others achieve their goals.
In London, I developed IBS and spent years gong to GI doctors trying to figure out how to feel better. At this time I discovered a functional medicine practitioner who opened my eyes to different treatments and protocols to improve my condition. I became passionate about learning alternative ways to help people who struggle with weight loss, anxiety, pain, etc and can't seem to get better, no matter how hard they try.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

The first visit is usually a 15 minute free get to know you session, where we go over your history and your goals. It is informative and educational. Our initial session is very in-depth and looks at your history, diet, supplements, and lifestyle and we go over the questionnaires you have completed.

My Inspiration

Food is medicine and what you eat, your exercise and your stress impacts your health. I spent years not feeling well, and my main goal is to help you feel good all the time. If you are tired of fad diets, low energy, GI issues or not feeling well, it is time to figure out the root cause to your issues and take control of your health.
