Nutrition Counseling and Education Programs

Individual and Family Counseling

Why work with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Culinary Nutritionist?  It’s like having a personal trainer specifically for cooking and eating.  You use a nationally-certified, experienced trainer to help you learn how to exercise safely and effectively in order to meet your personal fitness goals.  A Registered Dietitian Nutritionst provides the same personalized attention and service to help you meet your nutrition goals.  We work together to set realistic goals and determine how to best reach them through small, incremental changes that are easily integrated into your day to day routine.

Looking to reach and maintain a healthy weight, overhaul your family’s diet, support someone with a recent medical diagnosis or chronic condition, or address food allergy issues?  I am uniquely qualified to provide nutrition therapy and counseling services to my clients coupled with hands-on cooking education.  I also partner with other specialist dietitians to teach shopping, meal planning and food preparation to their clients living with a variety of diseases, including eating disorders, cardiovascular disease and hypertension, diabetes, and gastrointestinal issues.  My philosophy is that its not about what you can’t eat any more, but the new things you get to have that you never knew existed.  We will work together to broaden your choices and your palate, introducing you or your loved one to a new world of flavors and ingredients to enjoy.

Although we do not currently accept insurance payments for nutrition counseling, please check with your carrier to determine their coverage for out of network services from a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.  Nutrition counseling may also be covered by healthcare flexible spending plans.

Group Nutrition Education Programs

Planning a conference or meeting for your group?  Consider a presentation on a current issue of nutrition and health that relates to your membership, followed by a cooking demonstration or food tasting to support the information that you have just learned.  I am available to speak to groups of all sizes on a variety of nutriton topics, and have worked with organizations ranging from Girl Scout troops and high school students to medical students to retired teachers.  Recent topics have included “Food for Thought: Healthy Eating for a Healthy Mind”, “Designing Dinner: Planning a Healthy Plate”, and “Eating on the Trail” – basic nutrition and meal planning for hikers.  Contact me at to plan your custom program and cooking demonstration.
