About

I have a degree in nutrition, so you don’t have to! I translate the most up-to-date scientific research into real life practices to help you establish lifelong healthy eating habits.

Here is what you can expect from working with me:

Learn what, when and how to eat. You probably already have a good idea of what’s healthy and what’s not… so why aren’t you seeing results? I will help you to put it all together: the balance, the timing and the amount that’s right for you.

Identify and help you overcome barriers. Everyone has challenges. Sometimes, we grow so accustomed to them that we don’t even realize how much they are holding us back. I will help you see what’s moving you towards your goals and what might be keeping you from doing and being your best.

You’re not doing it alone. Having someone you are accountable to when you set goals can be a huge motivator. Knowing that your Dietitian will be checking in with you can help you stick to your action plan, and will help you get back on track when life throws unexpected challenges your way.

You have a trusted resource. What protein powder should I buy? Should I be taking fish oil? What’s the scoop on this latest trendy diet? You can ask your Dietitian all of your burning nutrition questions, knowing that you’ll get an answer based on the latest science and research (not the latest social media buzz or Netflix documentary).

You’ll get emotional support. You might not even realize it, but how you feel has a big impact on your appetite and what, how and when you eat. Getting a handle on how your emotions affect your relationship with food can make it easier to overcome emotional and stress-eating, and your Dietitian will set you up with strategies to help you repair your relationship with food and change your habits for good.
