Food and nutrition are often common problems for people who live an otherwise fulfilling and successful life. I know many feel misguided and frustrated with their past efforts to become healthier. I believe that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to lifelong health and happiness. Food is a very intimate part of one’s life. That is why I am passionate about getting to know clients beyond the foods they eat. By establishing an open conversation based in trust and free from judgement, we can work together to pick health goals and the most sustainable way to attain them.
