Helen turned my life around. She led a 7-day workshop on diet and anxiety. I learned so much from that workshop that I immediately, without hesitation, joined her "Meet You Where You Are At" 21-day sugar detox program. She led us gently through a captivating education of our foods and how they affect us- engaging our minds, bodies, and spirits. Helen is the total package of compassion, knowledge, truth, wit and grace. You will be amazed at your own life-changing transformation!
I have the pleasure of working with Helen Garden-Parks which started this spring when I enrolled in her class “Meet You Where Your At” (MYWYA) for total health counseling. Throughout my lifetime, I have tried many ways to be healthier and lose weight and have always found them temporary. With Helen's program, I am learning how to understand the food I eat and how my body works with this food. Helen with my willingness has me modifying my eating habits. She showed me how to read labels and introduce healthier things into my diet. Helen taught me which foods encourage a healthier lifestyle and healthier living. Helen also models how to do simple exercise and meditation so that my body would work more efficiently towards my goal. Through Helen's program I stopped thinking about weight loss and began thinking that I was learning to change my life. To date, I am pleased to say that I have improved my health, lost weight and continue to lose more. I truly do not believe I would have learned everything I did and feel so good about reaching my goals without Helen and her program. Helen is the utmost professional yet she has a touching compassion and dedication to her clients.

About me

I am certified as a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Functional Blood Chemistry Specialist: I get to play with food AND help people. I am committed to creating a world of love and light where everyone gets to play!

I have a master's degree in elementary education from Sarah Lawrence College and a bachelor's degree in psychology from Wellesley. I am a writer and collage artist. I practice yoga and meditation and I am committed to Redesign Trainings as a volunteer coach. To round things out, I get my violin out for fun every now and then, have passable skills in Spanish, and have been doing a daily cartwheel for the past sixteen months.

I've been studying nutrition ever since I became a vegetarian in college. Fast forward a couple of decades until, shortly after I turned 40, I developed arthritis and intense gas issues. My knees hurt so much I stopped running and hiking--and going out in public was dicey. I explored multiple healing options until I read Jordan Rubin's story and found The Weston A. Price Foundation with its focus on traditional eating. That was more than a decade ago and today I continue to eat whole, sustainably-raised foods, I run and hike to my heart's content, and go out in public without fear of excess gas.

Life is good!

I am eager to share what I have learned with you. My family may roll their collective eyeball when I encourage them to try homemade kombucha or kimchi, but they can't argue with my energy level!

My Philosophy of Care

I am committed to you and your journey to optimal health and support you with all the tools in my toolkit!

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

My clients appreciate that I listen and work with them gently, rather than drawing lines in the sand.

My Inspiration

Food is medicine, medicine is food. The body responds to the flow of energy in real, whole foods, as well as to the power of Reiki to shift emotional or spiritual blockages. With my support, we get the mind, body, and spirit back in sync.

I have worked with Helen with her ReStart program as well as her Meet You Where You Are At classes and her knowledge and passion in nutrition and wellness are contagious! She is full of helpful information and tips to guide you on your path to whole-being wellness. She has literally changed my life and I will be forever grateful. Helen truly cares about you as a person and about your community, your environment and everything that goes into your health and wellness. I highly recommend her for all your wellness needs!
I just finished the ReStart program with Helen and noticed huge results. She was supportive, informative and humorous every step of the way!
