Individual Nutrition Counseling
I work with couples, individuals, and families on a range of health issues. We can meet in person at my office in downtown Silver Spring, or we can talk via phone. Initial sessions typically take around 60 minutes, follow ups are usually 45-50 minutes.
Working with a nutritionist is more like working with a therapist than visiting a doctor, and you should expect to make at least three visits to see benefits. Five sessions are recommended. That being said, my goal is to empower you to take charge of your own health, not to keep you coming back!

Stand-alone Nutrition Assessments
Many people are curious as to whether they are eating a balanced diet that meets all their nutrient needs, especially if they avoid certain food groups (e.g. vegetarian or gluten-free). A stand-alone dietary assessment involves you recording everything you eat and drink for three days, and then sending me the data to analyze.
I look at big picture information, like whether you're getting adequate calories and a good balance of macronutrients (fat, protein, and carbohydrates), all the way down to the nitty-gritty of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) for your specific life stage (e.g. preschooler, pregnant woman, elderly man).
You receive a report, summarizing my findings, with tips for how to increase any nutrients that may be lacking, and how to diversify where there may be stapes in your diet that are surplus to requirements.
Public Workshops & Engagements
Workshops can be a good opportunity to learn more about a particular health topic. If you are a local school or business interested in hosting a workshop, please contact me!

Professional Continuing Education
Sometimes people want nutrition education for professional rather than personal purposes - we can do that too! I love to teach, and it's a big part of what I do. Whether you are a dietitian/nutritionist looking for more of a deep dive into specific life cycle nutrition topics, or a doula wanting to understand pre- and postnatal nutrition to better assist their clients, we can create a custom education program to meet your interests. Classes will be phone based.
I am also working on creating an online continuing education program covering life cycle nutrition topics for health professionals, due to increased demand in this area. It's one of my 2020 goals, and I'm planning to get it accredited for CNS® CEU credits - check back soon!
