I believe in providing counseling services that fit the needs of each family I’m serving. Together we formulate goals that your family WANTS to achieve. My job is to provide you with the tools and education to reach the realistic goals that YOU set.

At Back 2 Basics Nutrition a holistic healthy eating approach is followed. Here I help families get back to the basics of eating. We achieve this through whole foods, and establishing uncomplicated, natural, and nourishing eating habits. No fad diets here, no magic shakes, and no disordered dieting. We will be setting your child up for a lifetime of healthy eating habits and behaviors.

When working with children it’s also very important to keep things positive. Self-esteem and body image are a critical part to a happy healthy childhood. I do not set weight related goals with your child, but rather set and encourage healthy lifestyle goals.

I have been trained in Motivational Interviewing, and practice family centered counseling with positive reinforcement. Nutrition education should be fun, counseling sessions should stay positive and your family’s health is the priority.
