A holistic nutrition counselor is a guide and mentor who empowers you and provides ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness.
As your counselor, I will listen carefully and we’ll navigate the world of contradictory nutrition and health advice together to explore what truly works for you. Frequently Asked Questions About My Programs ...What is holistic nutrition counseling?
We start with food, but then do so much more. I look at the big picture of your life (a "holistic" view)--what's going on with your eating habits, but also what's happening with your physical activity? Your relationships? Your career or school life? Your stress levels? All of these things play as big a role in your health and well-being as the food you eat. In the programs that I offer, we will address everything that can be affecting how you feel and function. As I say to my clients, if you're constantly stressed to the breaking point, it doesn't matter how much broccoli you eat, you won't be healthy.What is your background, and how did you become a holistic nutrition counselor?
I received my training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I am certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
Prior to beginning my career as a holistic nutrition counselor, I worked for 15 years in media as an editor and writer. In addition to working at several start-ups, I spent nine years at MTV, most recently as senior editor of MTVNews.com, and was then named executive editor of ELLE.com.Who will benefit from your programs and what is expected of the client?
Anyone who is ready to make real, lasting changes to their life will benefit from my programs. Whether you're looking to lose weight, clear up a nagging digestive issue, prevent the onset of chronic disease, or just generally feel healthier and more energized, these programs will work for you, as long as you're willing to do the necessary work.Who is not likely to benefit from your programs?
If you're looking for another quick-fix diet that will lead to super-fast weight loss, then my programs aren't for you. Weight lost very quickly through restrictive diets is gained back once you return to "normal" eating. My approach is different--by making small, slow changes to your habits, you will see slow and steady weight loss, and then keep the weight off for good. It's also important to note that I cannot magically heal you or zap the pounds off for you--you need to be an engaged partner in the process.How can I guarantee to get the most out of the program and reach my goals?
To get the most out of my programs you just need to open your mind to new ideas, be willing to try new things, follow the recommendations we come up with together, and have confidence in yourself that you can do this!
