I believe that your food needs aren’t the same as your neighbor.
Some people may benefit from temporary, dietary medical interventions for specific physical conditions like low-FODMAP, GAPs, Mediterranean, etc. While others may need to focus on creating a healing relationship with all foods. I support my client’s individual food needs and acknowledge that there isn’t a one-size fits all approach.

Integrative Clinical Nutrition
I’m a work in progress. A few years ago, the stress in my life tanked my immune system and I got really sick. Multiple courses of antibiotics and high dose steroids sick. These drugs thankfully kept me breathing, but did nothing for my gut health and I was subsequently diagnosed with Crohn’s disease.
The months after my diagnosis were life changing. I went back to school for a Master of Science in Nutrition and Integrative Health, learned a ton about food, and saw immediate improvements in my health. But the most drastic improvements didn’t happen until I addressed my stress. Then, I started to feel energized about life again!
As an integrative clinical nutritionist specializing in mental health issues and the physical conditions that go with them, I work with clients to nourish their mind, body, and spirit. I use food, along with select herbs and supplements to bolster the physical body. Integrative practices such as mindfulness, biofeedback, guided imagery, and aromatherapy support the mind and spirit.
In my off hours, I love to cook, read, garden, and get into nature with my husband and son.

You might see her at the office on occasion – she is a ball of fluff and would love to sniff you!
