I care deeply about helping my patients achieve their nutrition goals.
Over a decade of experience working in hospitals and with private clients has made me understand the vital role that nutrition plays in our overall well-being. Often our nutritional intake is crucial to how we feel and there are few medical conditions that don't benefit from a mindful diet. I know that food is an essential part of life. Overly restrictive diets, blanket prohibitions or rapid dramatic changes rarely yield long-term results.
I offer thoughtful nutrition solutions based on the latest research and my clinical experience to cover the full spectrum of dietetic needs or goals. My experience has taught me the importance of listening to the individual patient or family I am working with to tailor my recommendations appropriately.
I enjoying counseling diverse patient populations to help children and adults better understand their nutritional needs and develop strategies to achieve their goals. I have a special passion for working with children and their parents to address immediate nutritional needs and provide them with the skills necessary to have a healthy and appreciative relationship with food as they grow. For my adult clients, I understand how important it is to provide care with flexibility and a real appreciation for the challenges of day-to-day life.
