Holistic nutrition is an integrative approach to health and wellness from a whole-person perspective — incorporating the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the body. Through specific and individualized dietary and lifestyle suggestions, Holistic Nutritionists aim to help people who want to reduce their risk of developing diseases and, ultimately bring balance and wellness back into all areas of their lives.
One of the roles of a Holistic Nutritionist is to educate on how food and lifestyle choices can have a direct impact on how one thinks and feels daily. Specifically, we consider the unique biology and physiology of the individual and tailor recommendations to optimize each individual’s feeling of wellness.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” ~ Hippocrates

I have had a strong interest in the relationship between health and nutrition since my early twenties, but it took me nearly two more decades to turn my passion into a profession. The turning point for me, following a successful career in seabird ecology, was seeing family members develop and struggle through various illnesses and diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. These experiences reconnected me to my relationship with nutrition, and the extraordinary benefits it has on creating long-term health. This knowledge is extremely empowering, not only amidst illness but also in reducing the risk of developing illness. All of this led me to become a holistic nutritionist through the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN). My goal is to help people regain their health and vitality.
I am a proud mother of a teenaged son and I want to fully be there for him, in body and mind. I want to see him through high school and what path he chooses in life, personally and professionally. When the time comes, I want to be a vivacious grandmother, travel well into my golden years and live independently.

A 60-minute initial consultation will discuss main health goals/concerns, current diet and lifestyle, and signs and symptoms of imbalance. You leave with homework to complete a food journal, recording everything that you eat or drink. Meanwhile, I review all of your information and evaluate your signs and symptoms to identify nutritional or body system imbalances. We meet again in about a week for a 60-minute follow-up ($130 plus tax).
