Food can be a complicated, wonderful, difficult subject.  Understanding a person's relationship with food and the impact is has on their life is paramount to successful changes.  I have over 15 years of clinical nutrition experience working in a variety of clinic, hospital and outpatient settings and love being part of a multi-disciplinary team.  A team approach provides clients with the best possible, indiviualized plan to optimize health.
