If you’re seeking relief from digestive discomfort or wanting to prepare yourself or manage after gastrointestinal surgery, I can help.

Working together, we can identify food triggers of your digestive challenges, implement dietary modifications and troubleshoot symptom management to improve your quality of life.

Surgery on your digestive system can impact digestion, nutrient absorption, and overall well-being.

Working together before your operation, we can make sure you’re in the best nutritional state to recover from surgery.

And afterwards, ensure you’re eating and drinking to regain your health.

"Both our blood pressure readings have been consistently 20 points less than before!"

“Following our consultation many weeks ago, we have made good progress. We wanted to thank you for your help and concern for our nutritional well-being. We have changed our diet to a low-fat, low-sodium, low-sugar, with great results. Both our blood pressure readings have been consistently 20 points less than before! In fact, my physician has taken me off the water pill I’ve been taking for the past 30+ years. W. has had to skip his blood pressure medication several times in these last few months, so what you recommended has indeed been a game-changer. I have lost 15 lbs, and W. has lost 4 inches in his waist; he is bed bound. I use your recipes many times and rotate them into our meal plan. Love the turkey meatballs with artichokes! You put us on the right path, and we are so grateful. Thank you so much for your help and guidance. We are feeling much better and will continue on this path.”

Should we meet before or after surgery, and other questions you might have

The sooner the better. Call me before so I can prepare you and optimize your nutrition. Afterwards, get in touch with me and we can make sure your recovery is smooth sailing.
Yes – I’m able to communicate with your surgeon so they are aware of what we’ve talked about.
Yes, I will be able to give you more specific and tailored information if you’re able to bring this with you. Please have available at our appointment your physical and medical history, blood work and any other medical reports you have.
Yes, I will be able to give you more specific and tailored information if you’re able to bring this with you. Please have available at our appointment your physical and medical history, blood work and any other medical reports you have.
This varies depending on individual needs. After our initial consultation, we’ll design a schedule that suits you.
Any decisions about medications should be made with your doctor. My plan will complement your medical advice and, in some cases, may lead to reduced medication or dosage with a doctor’s approval.
I specialize in providing advice tailored to individual needs, even when managing multiple health conditions. Your plan will be crafted to address all your concerns.
No, I don’t take insurance. Taking insurance means that my services may have to change to shorter appointments, provide less support or have to follow the guidance of insurance companies. Being free from the constraints of insurance allows me to personalize the service I provide to my clients with longer, more thorough appointments that meet your needs rather than the needs of the insurance company.

A Registered Dietitian (RD) is a food and nutrition expert. They can also be referred to as Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN). A Registered Dietitian provides evidence-based medical nutrition therapy and nutritional counseling. An RD can help treat illnesses with medical nutrition therapy. Furthermore, RD can guide a lifestyle to prevent chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension, by providing medical nutrition therapy.

Anyone with a passion for food can refer to themselves as a nutritionist. Nutritionists can’t report back to your doctor, can’t recommend blood work, and may not be aware of the details of your medical condition. And, they aren’t qualified to provide medical nutrition therapy for medical conditions.
