My work is about deeply listening to you.

 

 

I’m just supposed to do this. I enjoy science and I enjoy working with people. This evolved into helping people with food challenges, whether in a couple of sessions or over an extended period of time. It doesn’t matter. I’m in it for the long run. It’s immensely gratifying to help my clients attain results: more energy and a better quality of life. If this sounds good to you, I’d like to partner with you!

I feel totally alive from the moment a new client walks in the door. I listen carefully for who you are and what your needs are, and work with you to design a plan that will fit you and your lifestyle. In a series of sessions, I coach you through the process of change, connecting mind, body and spirit. And you will see results.

I look forward to welcoming you into my supportive practice.
