Nutrition counseling is an important element of developing a healthy lifestyle. Whether you are just looking to feel healthier or you have a disease state you are struggling with, many times nutrition changes can be the key to resolving or decreasing the severity of these challenges. In addition, if you feel you have a poor relationship with food, working with an eating disorder specialized dietitian as well as a therapist can be beneficial to improving health and quality of life.
I specialize in helping you heal your body from the inside out so you can be independently healthy & feel like a healer in your own home.
Often times busy professionals and parents come to me for nutritional counseling when they're struggling with their digestion, low energy, and compromised sleep, and they're tired of trying to figure these issues out on their own because by doing so they have also noticed an undeniable decline in their mental well being (stress, anxiety/fear/worry, depression). In my twenty+ years doing clinical work as a Certified Gravity Colon Hydrotherapist, the two most common and profound missing links I see in the healing process are a focus on gut health and proper detoxification. Whether you're brand new to detoxification (cleansing) or have been at it for a while, I can help you utilize nutritional counseling as a direct way to reclaim your vitality by focusing on three simple pillars: proper nourishment, cellular detoxification, and whole-body rejuvenation. There are a number of different situations that let you know you would benefit from nutritional counseling: 1) If you're struggling with getting the health results that you want even though you feel like you're eating what you believe is "healthy food." 2) You aren't sure what to eat or how to eat it and because of this you just feel like you have to "push through" every day. (IE: Food combining principles are new/foreign to you.) 3. You have a history of "dieting," maybe losing some weight, but then you gain it back because you're not being taught what a healthy detoxifying lifestyle actually looks like outside of a "weight loss sprint." (BTW: It's not all about sipping wheatgrass and eating food that tastes like cardboard!) 4. You are someone who is at the top of your game professionally, but you just want to get ahead of your health because you see it's starting to get in the way of your career/family life/love life. If anyone of these things resonates with you, you're an ideal candidate for nutritional counseling. I'd be happy to show you what working with me could look like. If you asked any one of my clients what it was like for them, they would tell you, "...it feels like and looks like I'm aging in reverse." Let me know if you have any other questions and I'd be happy to fill in the gap for you. : )
Using functional clinical nutrition and counseling, I help individuals and families find their personalized path to health and well being.
In a word: everyone. Why? Because there has been so much misinformation out there that everyone, including the medical establishment, is confused. Navigating what ought to be a simple path for optimal nutrition has become an overgrown jungle of conflicting advice. A lot of the problem has stemmed from research that hasn't taken bioindividuality and genetic information into account. It is important to know that there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach that will help all humans create optimal health. There are just too many variables. Getting professional help, even one or two sessions, to get yourself on a path that works for YOU is time and money well spent for years to come.
The person who can benefit from nutrition coaching the most is the person who maybe knows what to do, but is having a hard time putting it into action. Nutrition information can be confusing as nutrition science is still in it’s infancy. Every year there seems to be a new study that contradicts what we thought was true. What we DO know is that there isn’t a one-sized fits-all approach when it comes to nutrition. Everyone’s body is different in their need for certain nutrients - which could be a reason why a diet that your partner or friend did produced fantastic results for them, but not for you. If you haven’t quite found the right diet for your body and lifestyle, it could be time to look into a personalized approach.
Nutrition support and counseling is a key element to wellness and longevity. More than 85% of foods Americans eat are made from processed flour, sugars and/or oils. All of these can be inflammatory to the body and the root cause of many chronic diseases and nagging ailments. Our bodies are very resilient and will try to heal itself given the right foods, environment and lifestyle choices.
We are a collective of healers who help people find clarity, balance & ease on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.
Whether you’re recovering from an injury, managing a serious health condition,
