I have an intrinsic and evidence-based understanding of the positive impact that good nutrition and a lifestyle approach to health has on overall levels of wellbeing. I work with patients to overcome the barriers and challenges to achieving positive dietary changes through creating an environment of trust and understanding.

My personal experience has led me to believe passionately in this

approach throughout all stages of life. I provide individualized evidence-based care and enjoy working with other health care providers in order to optimize health outcomes. I consider it to be a privilege to be a part of people’s journey to a healthier and happier self, with a holistic focus on their lives.

My primary areas of nutritional interest include (but certainly are not limited to):

  • Weight management
  • PCOS
  • Cardiovascular disease

Often people can feel vulnerable when discussing their health and lifestyle.My compassionate, personable style assists me to make you feel at ease during sessions.
