Kirsten is a wonderful and knowledgeable nutritionist! She is so great to work with because she listens and works to find an eating program that will work for me. She’s very understanding about how difficult it can be to make changes. She’s helped me to have a more varied interesting plan with more veggies and protein. I plan to continue to work with her because she keeps me on track! Thank you Kirsten!!
irsten is the best! She is a warm and open-minded practitioner who obviously loves what she does and finds joy in helping people. I have a bit of a complicated health issue, but she eagerly took me on as a client and went above and beyond finding ways to help my unique health and food-allergy related needs and challenges with weight. Kirsten encourages plant-based eating, but if it doesn't fit with your lifestyle, she is really respectful of that. I've learned a lot about how the body works from Kirsten. I would encourage everyone to book a session with her- she will definitively help you optimize your diet to reach your goals!
Kirsten is great! She is willing to meet you right where you are on your nutrition journey. Food, diet and nutrition are the hardest changes to make for most people. It is awesome when the nutritionist makes you feel comfortable and motivated to be excited about the change ahead and be invested in helping you figure out YOUR best path as no one person is the same.

About me

I love to see the faces of clients in my cooking classes realize new foods they enjoy! With a MS degree in Nutrition, I work as a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), licensed in PA (LDN). I am certified and specialize in Diabetes Care and Education (CDCES) to provide Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) to help my clients improve their health with a nutritious diet and healthy lifestyle.

My Philosophy of Care

I am also a licensed landscape architect, but after years of designing athletic fields, parks, walking paths, healthcare gardens, I did not feel I made much of a difference in the health of my communities. I went back to school, and now lead a weekly diabetes nutrition class and counsel people with chronic disease. I use behavior modifications my clients select to transform their diet into a healthy lifestyle within a few visits. Their improved blood test results, reduced symptoms and happy stories keep me inspired to keep up with the latest nutrition research for effective diet changes.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

The first half of each initial visit is information gathering - I need to know your health history, your genetic health diagnoses, your goals, how you live a typical day, what foods you currently enjoy - the second half is nutrition information that relates to your diagnoses and goals and you tell me what small step or two you decide to make before our next visit

My Inspiration

Kirsten gets to know where you are in lifestyle, health, food and helps you decide how you can transition into a healthier diet and lifestyle. Often is takes a few simple recipes or meal timing, when you are ready to make a change.

I met Kirsten through my cousin who is type 2 and attended a number of sessions with him I found Kirsten to be very informative and enthusiastic in sharing nutrition/dietary strategies I would highly recommend her services
Kirsten is very knowledgeable and shares her understanding of the relationship of food, diet and nutrition in a way and using a language that is easily understood by the lay person. She was able to help me pinpoint the source of my dietary problem during our first meeting and helped me work through an actionable plan and resolve the problem in just a few sessions.
