We can assist you with a range of options such as dietary intervention for high cholesterol, high triglycerides, diabetes, hypertension, weight management, disordered eating, sports performance issues, or any dietary topic that you might be concerned about. Some people just come in to see if they are eating well!

  • Initial consultations are 45 minutes and follow-up appointments are usually 30 minutes.
  • Individual and group counseling sessions are available upon request.
  • For immediate dietary assistance, please refer to our online resources.
