Hello! I work in Maine as a dietitian, a coach and health educator. I have recently become certified as a LEAP Therapist to offer services to people suffering from inflammatory disease related to hidden food sensitivities. I love Maine and have included a painting of the coastline by Robert J. Neary. Maine is like a playground!
I am grateful for having this career for 17 years. Prior to this, I worked 12 years in restaurants with a culinary arts degree and with some of the best chefs in the country. I support looking at behaviors and not the scale for success. I am an Intuitive Eating Counselor. I also work as aWellcoaches® Certified Health and Wellness Coach. The bottom line for healthy eating may very well be listening to our bodies and noticing the effects of our food choices on the quality of our lives. Are we getting what we want and need from our food choices?
Becoming fearless eaters challenges us to know what works with our own preferences, lifestyle and health regardless of what the American food culture, gurus and experts deem correct. I am not here to take away your power but to help you discover more of it! If you suffer from food sensitivities, how important it is to know what foods sustain and nourish us as opposed to keeping us sick.
"We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves."
