The way I work is through
Educating and guiding clients on nutrition topics most relevant to their dietary habits, medical history, and family medical history. Sharing techniques of intuitive/mindful eating including listening to their own bodies. Helping in a positive atmosphere to “unlearn” eating habits that are destructive to mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. I help create new habits and remind my patients that our health is really the sum of our habits.
What executives say about working with me
I am flexible and respectful of the executive lifestyle, pressures, and expectations. That I provide science and evidenced based information from research and interpretation of new scientific studies. I work with my client’s busy schedules. I genuinely care about my patients and want them to experience health that lasts a lifetime.
Why I find this work so gratifying
People today are getting their nutrition from food sources that are modified with little or no nutritional value. With the amount of stress, distractions and performance expectations on executives, it is understandable that their bodies and responses to everyday situations tend to deteriorate. It has been a wonderful experience the last 10 years to see first-hand the effect that sustainable diet changes have on health. I have seen patients come off their blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes medications due to dietary changes. I am grateful to be able to teach patients that proper nutrition gives focused and sustained energy, mental clarity, and emotional stability.
What executive clients can expect from working with me / outcomes
Identification of issues with initial self-assessment to determine the best path for wellness. From there I help with general guidelines of where to begin the journey, including specific recommendations to improve quality of life and digestive health. I continue to communicate with clients, and their physicians if necessary on an ongoing basis and talk through issues until we come up with a solution.
