I provide a lifestyle-based approach to nutrition counseling, and address health conditions from a Functional Nutrition perspective. I work with my clients to create an individualized nutrition plan, and use realistic strategies to slowly change behaviors, build a healthy relationship with food, and gain insight into all areas in life that may be affecting food choices, stress levels and therefore overall health status. Ultimately, as someone who loves to cook and eat, I believe that eating should be enjoyable as well as nourishing. I love to share my nutrition knowledge, love of food, and strategies for finding peace and enjoyment on each of our personal food journeys!
Integrative and Functional Nutrition therapy is a leading-edge, evidence-based, and comprehensive approach that focuses on identifying root causes and system imbalances to significantly improve health outcomes. It looks at how food affects our bodies on the cellular level and aims to address underlying imbalances in the body which can lead to conditions such as IBS, leaky gut, food sensitivities, adrenal fatigue, weight gain, and migraines and ultimately restore function through food, lifestyle and supplement interventions.
I obtained my Bachelor Degree in Dietetics from the University of Connecticut, and am a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Greater New York Dietetic Association. As a graduate of the Coordinated Program of Dietetics within the School of Allied Health, I completed an intensive internship rotation in various settings - clinical, community, food service, counseling, and research.
My lifelong passion for nutrition, cooking, and a healthy lifestyle has inspired me to help others experience how great healthy can taste and feel from the inside out! I continue to grow my knowledge of nutrition through continuous research, certified education classes on various topics including functional nutrition and culinary nutrition.
