I'm a Certified Nutrition Specialist® professional. This is my philosophy about how we can work together to help you achieve your goals.
I love food.
It is one of the defining characteristics of any culture and our lives depend on it. To quote Ann Wigmore, "The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison."
I agree with Ann, and I also believe that with the direction that our food system is moving, some of the food imposters masquerading as real foods are speeding up the poisoning process. As a result, I believe that one of the greatest things that people can do for their health is to take charge of what and how they eat.
I want to help you do that.
I believe in individual attention and a personal approach.
There is no singular, magic "right" diet for everyone. We all have different genetic makeups, different lifestyles and different goals. Eating a varied, whole foods diet is sound basic advice for everyone, and yet within that framework there are endless possibilities.
I want to create a partnership with people that allows us to discover what truly works best for each individual so that everyone can achieve their greatest level of health and wellness.
My practice isn't about being a mouthpiece for the food lobbies that already have a lot of influence in Washington. My practice is about a holistic approach to health that puts your well being first. I have studied traditional cultures and food energetics in addition to western biomedical science. I use this knowledge in combination to create the best plan of healing for each individual client.
I have extensive experience working with clients who have digestive issues, depression and anxiety, blood sugar imbalances, thyroid imbalances, a desire to alter their weight and those who are looking to optimize their health for pregnancy, athletic performance and life in general.
