My Philosophy

Nourishing body, mind, and soul

Good nutrition is key to optimal health, and it can improve physical, emotional and mental well-being. Holistic nutritional counselling focuses on optimizing digestive health and incorporating whole natural foods that, as much as possible, are organic and sourced locally. These principles, combined with healthy habits and good self-care will help you to feel your best, naturally.

Balance in all things

My personal philosophy balances the ideal with what is practical, affordable and enjoyable. Instead of perfection, we focus on making small, sustainable changes. You will notice a big difference in your health, wellness and quality of life over time. Wellness is a lifelong journey taken one step at a time.

My Clients

I have helped my clients overcome a wide array of nutritional challenges.  What holds you back from a healthier lifestyle?  If you identify with one or more of the statements below then, like my clients,  Holistic Nutritional Counselling can help you feel your best.

Are you tired of feeling like food is your enemy?

After a meal, do you often feel uncomfortable? Do you sometimes have pain in your abdomen or experience painful constipation or its opposite? Or do you suffer discomfort with heartburn after meals, even interrupting a good night’s rest? Perhaps you have been diagnosed with IBD, IBS, or even Crohn’s Disease. Incorporating the principles of Holistic Nutrition can help improve digestion, reduce your symptoms, and heal your gut.

Are you concerned about your risk for chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, or cancer?

If you have a family history of diabetes, heart disease, or cancer you could be at-risk of these diseases too. Holistic Nutrition can help you improve your health, reduce your risk, and improve your quality of life, whether you have been diagnosed with a chronic disease, or may potentially be at-risk.

Do you or a family member have a limited diet because of gluten, dairy, nuts, or other food sensitivities?

Being diagnosed with celiac disease can make it seem like you can’t eat anything. Perhaps you have other sensitivities or allergies limiting the foods you can eat. You and your family can eat well and with good variety with knowledge of Holistic Nutrition.

Have you tried many diet and exercise programs to reach your optimal weight?

You may even have given up on dieting or programs that make you eat specific foods or focus on extreme exercise regimens. I can help you to make lasting lifestyle changes to achieve your ideal weight and overall goals for health and well-being.

Have you experienced a loss, trauma, or life change?

Life happens.  We all experience major change and loss, whether that be a long-time job, financial or physical set back, health crisis, or the loss of a loved one. These traumas affect our well-being. Supporting your body with natural whole food and good self-care will help rebuild your body, energy levels, and emotional stamina.

Do you feel like you're running all day long and have no time for healthy meals?

Life is busy!  Taking care of family and work responsibilities often comes at the cost of your own health and well-being. Our contemporary lifestyles take a toll on how we eat.  Take out, convenience, and processed food save time but fail to nourish us. I can help you plan and cook healthy meals for yourself and your family, reducing stress and increasing nutrition and well-being.
