DIABETES AND BLOOD SUGAR CONTROL

Individuals with diabetes, prediabetes, or even a potential genetic predisposition for insulin resistance are regulars at my practice. I use a personalized approach to help you achieve more stable blood sugar levels so that you can feel your best, increase your energy levels, and reduce your A1c.

  • Pre-diabetes
  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Family History of Insulin Resistance
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Gestational Diabetes

Weight Management

When we work together on weight management, be it weight loss, weight gain, or working with your child for healthy growth, I tailor my plan directly to you and your family’s needs. My approach is patient but direct—everybody makes lifestyle changes at their own pace. I’m here to help you effectively manage your weight for better health and more vitality.

  • Mindful Eating
  • Portion Control
  • Activating Metabolism
  • Childhood Obesity
  • Physical Activity
  • Healthy Weight Gain

HEART HEALTH

When it comes to the heart, nutrition is focused on strengthening the heart and preserving blood vessel health. A healthy diet and lifestyle, along with regular physical activity, are your best weapons to fight cardiovascular disease.

  • Energy Levels
  • Illness Prevention
  • Quality of Life
