What are your favorite foods?
I love a good glass of wine and a steak salad with tons of blue cheese and those spicy peppers. I also really love chicken wings. Yep, I’m fancy like that…
Why did you decide to go into women’s health?
I was tired of watching my friends and family members feel helpless coping with PCOS, unexplained weight gain, fatigue, irregular periods, infertility, etc… The root of chronic disease is hormone imbalance and hormones are controlled by what we eat, how we feel, and how we move. The old calorie in calorie advice isn’t cutting it. We need to start focusing at WHY we are getting sick and take control of the situation.
What’s your favorite TV show?
Game of Thrones…hands down! I can’t wait for the next season. I also love a good trashy reality show while I work out (hellloooo Real Housewives)!
How can you help me?
Chances are you already know that chia seeds are better for you than chips. But you might be struggling with how to put the pieces together and make this a lifestyle that you can enjoy. That’s my job! I’m here to simplify all the nutrition information and put it together in a plan that will heal your body without having to drink protein shakes for every meal.
Music blaring vs silence?
Music blaring. In fact I’m blasting out my eardrums with Seether by Veruca Salt as I type this. Long live the 90’s!
Why don’t you offer single visits?
I’ve been doing this long enough to know that change doesn’t happen overnight. I’d love to say you’re going to meet me and walk out like a shining unicorn but unfortunately that’s not the case (not right away at least!) Old habits diet hard and there will be times you are knocking it out of the park and then there will be times where you want to cancel your appointment because you ate the better part of a cheesecake. The package structure supports you through this. I want you to contact me, ask me questions, ask for support and I want to be able to give it you.
Do you take insurance?
Insurance has some great benefits, but nutrition counseling is rarely one of them. For that reason, I charge cash for my services. Now, if your doctor has provided a medical diagnosis and your policy covers nutrition counseling; I would be happy to give you a superbill for you to submit for reimbursement.
