We are a team of registered and licensed dietetic professionals with many years of experience in a variety of settings.  We continually keep current on health and nutrition issues to provide up to date, medically proven and sound nutritional information.  Recommendations are not based on fads.

OUR PHILOSOPHY:

Diets don't work, lifestyle changes do!  Diets are temporary while lifestyle changes can be permanent.  We help work the foods you like to eat in a better balance.  We will assist you in developing "normal" eating behaviors.  We are committed to providing top qaulity service that is also practical and realistic.  We enjoy educating and motivating others towards long-term lifestyle habits.  Medical nutrition therapy plays a key role in managing, and preventing many illnesses and conditions.

WHAT WE DO:

We provide one-on-one medical nutritional therapy to assist clients and families in making dietary and lifestyle changes. Individual needs and preferences guide the nutrition sessions.  Our intent is to teach you how to take a proactive approach to create wellness and balance.

The initial session includes a thorough nutritional assessment, review of how your lifestyle impacts your medical condition, development of a nutritional care plan, review of wellness guidelines with goals, and a sample meal plan for guidance.

Follow up visits will address the various aspects of your life with regard to food shopping, meal preparation, eating away from home, eating behaviors, and evaluation of food records, and activity.  We will also review labs, medications, and supplements.  At each session you will receive practical tips and individual goals to move you towards improved wellness.
