Addressing underlying issues

One’s relationship with food and potential issues that arise are often a product of other factors that exist in multiple areas of life. Addressing these areas together can help give you a better understanding of risk factors, comorbidities, and triggers that may affect progress with your nutrition.

Nutrional education and counseling

We will help you with the everyday choices that food and eating present. We often find that clients feel somewhat helpless when unaware of alternatives. This can leave one feeling restricted in making choices and can lead to a monotonous diet, and/or key nutrients being overlooked when feeling like one only has a few choices. With help from our dietitian, you can expect to learn a wide array of dietary choices, techniques, and skills to improve your eating habits.

Lifestyle change

A lifestyle change, not a diet is the key to lasting health and results. Our dietitian’s goal is to work with you to change the way you view your relationship with food. We are human and to survive we must put in energy in the form of food. But what we chose to nourish our bodies with is one part of the many paths to wellness. A lifestyle change can sound overwhelming, but taking this long-term approach and keeping health in mind allows you and the dietitian to focus the mind during sessions while avoiding pitfalls of fad dieting and quick-fixes.
