nutrition services

My focus is a lifetime approach to healthy living. Nutrition isn’t just about eating, it’s about learning how to live.  My services and programs take that into account. 

Sessions can take place either in person, over the phone, by videochat on your phone, tablet, laptop or computer ...or any combination of all of these to fit what works best for you.

A one-time visit may be all you require or you may need a more comprehensive plan to keep you accountable and help you reach your goals.

When it comes to finding credible advice on your health, it can be overwhelming.  Online “information” is everywhere. But is it accurate? Can it be trusted?  There’s always someone trying to sell you “too-good-to-be-true” fixes. And then there’s the ever-changing releases of the mass media bombarding us every day.
