I have been educating people on eating and living mindfully since 2001 – helping to begin physical and emotional healing.
My focus is on helping my clients achieve optimal health and wellness through individual and group sessions, behavior modification and continuous personalized support. Practice and progress – not perfection, builds a strong mind/body connection.
The Comprehensive Nutrition programs can help with many specific health issues, but is essentially for anyone wishing to take a proactive approach to their health. I will guide and support you through a series of diet and lifestyle modifications essential for overall long-term health and wellness.
Your body relies on the nutrients you get from the food you eat; every bone, muscle, tissue and cell. Poor food and lifestyle choices will eventually lead to poor health. Small changes in diet and lifestyle, augmented by exercise and stress management, can vastly improve your energy and stamina levels, moderate mood, arm your body against illness and infection, and can contribute greatly to an increased sense of well-being. Recurring health problems can also be eased through these lifestyle changes.
Let me help you fight your genetics. Not only can the information and guidance I provide vastly improve how you are feeling IMMEDIATELY, but current scientific research shows that these modifications can also reduce your risk for all of the major and minor diseases that are plaguing our society today.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Massachusetts and my Master’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
My academic achievements were honored and recognized in the Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges (Graduate Division).
