Diane has always had a passion for preventive health through diet and exercise, and has always had a true love of food and cooking. Her passion was further ignited when she spent close to two years healing herself of a digestive illness through whole foods, homeopathic medicines, and other holistic therapies. This was a life changing experience that inspired her to help others improve their health in a more dedicated role in private counseling. Diane has grown her knowledge of nutrition over the years through continuous research, her own experience with food and illness, and classes on holistic health, cooking and herbal medicine.
She counsels clients with a variety of health goals and is particularly interested in digestive health, weight management, nutrition for children and teens and eating disorders. She also specializes in cooking for those with specific illnesses, for children and for busy professionals. Our way of eating and lifestyle play an important role in the prevention and treatment of many illnesses and she loves helping people experience how good they can feel through delicious healthy foods and lifestyle changes.
