I love food. I own more than 200 cookbooks and enjoy preparing meals that are both nutritious and delicious. However, I know that a healthy relationship with food doesn’t always come easily.
I believe that healthy eating doesn’t need to be time-consuming or complicated, and that health is not dependent on body weight.
No matter what your food and weight history, I can help you restore or discover a healthy, vibrant, peaceful relationship with food and guide you to find your best ways to nourish yourself. The results? More energy, better health and improved body image.
