How I Can Help You

Do you feel frustrated and overwhelmed with losing weight and taking control of your health?

As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist for over 20 years, I have coached hundreds of people and helped them make changes in their eating habits and lifestyle. You can improve your health, beat diabetes by losing weight and I have the knowledge, skills and passion to help you.

Are you are tired of feeling bad about your food choices and health, and conflicted about what and how to change?  My experience with motivational coaching can make a difference in your ability to succeed.I developed these skills working with a team of a psychologist and exercise physiologist leading a group therapy program for people struggling with obesity and binge eating at New York University Medical Center.

I have a Master of Science degree in nutrition from New York University and an Associate’s Degree in the culinary arts from The Culinary Institute of America.

I am an expert at helping people make lasting changes in their habits; however, I believe that the real expert in your health is YOU. That is why I work WITH you to set goals based on your priorities and guide you to success.

My clients aren’t resigned to eating dull, unappealing food, because as a professional chef, trained by The Culinary Institute of America, I only recommend food that tastes so good you will crave it. I published my cookbook,The Diabetes-Friendly Kitchen 125 Recipes for Creating Healthy Meals (HMH 2012), to show food lovers with diabetes and pre-diabetes how they can prepare seriously delicious meals.

My easy to follow nutritional advice, cooking tips and recipes have been featured

on The Dr. Oz Show, CNN Morning News, ABC’sGood Morning America”, The Food Network and I have been a guest on many radio shows including WAMC Vox Pop “Food Friday”, SiriusXM’s Doctor Radio “The Samantha Heller Show” and the syndicated “Rudy Maxa’s  World” In addition I have contributed articles or recipes to Diabetic Living, Plate and Cooking Light magazines and quoted for articles by The New York Times andThe Washington Post. 

My goal in working with you is simple,
I want to help you enjoy good food and good health!
