April 2014
As a result of recent events in both my professional and personal lives, philosophical questions central to both health care and nutritional counseling have been on my mind.

The foundation on which Joanne and I built this practice is our mission to provide our patients with the best nutrition counseling experience possible. Sometimes that means going against popular opinions, examining sensitive topics, and questioning the status quo.

Despite today's "low-carb" culture, everybody, especially endurance athletes, needs carbohydrates.

Best of luck to all of the runners, and a sincere thank you to each and every volunteer and spectator for making the day what it is.

She Said


To meal plan or not to meal plan, that is the question. A lot of people assume that since the majority of my patients are those with eating disorders, that I must use meal plans with all of my patients. This most definitely is not the case.


When a patient first comes to see me, I spend the initial session (or two) learning about  . . . Read More
