Change Your Health & Change Your Life

 

As an expert in nutrition, breastfeeding, and diabetes management, I aspire to give you the absolute best information and care. As a mother and compassionate friend, I make sure to distill that information so it’s easy to understand.

I believe that eating well and caring for your health should not feel restrictive, and I know the struggle of understanding the overwhelming amount of mixed messages we receive about food today. Whether you’ve just been diagnosed with diabetes or you just found out you’re pregnant for the first time, I'd be honored to help you work through any nutritional challenges you experience.

Let’s work together to find a plan that’s best for you. Take a deep breath. Change is possible - I promise.

Nutrition Counseling

Health is so much more than just food. Unearth the reasons behind your eating habits, untangle your food from your feelings, and truly transform your life. These individual sessions focus on breaking down your concerns as well as the habits you want to change. We'll start with a thorough (but friendly) review of your medical history and current eating/exercise habits. Together, we'll create a clear & concise plan for how to move forward and to build the life you deserve. At each session, we'll review what works and what to do going forward.

These sessions focus on cultivating positive relationships with food for your entire family. Learn how to balance food restrictions, picky eating habits, and feed your family. Let’s create a plan that works for you.

Breastfeeding Consultation

Breastfeeding can be challenging - and that’s perfectly normal! There’s no need to feel guilt or shame if you are struggling. As an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC), I can help you solve breastfeeding difficulties like trouble with latch-on, low milk supply, breast or nipple pain, and low weight gain in your baby. A breastfeeding consult can be tremendously helpful, especially in the first few days after delivery. I am available to answer any question you have as you begin your journey with breastfeeding.

Prenatal Nutrition Consult

As a mother myself, I know how beautiful and scary pregnancy can be, especially for a first-time parent. There's so much information to wade through! There are also differing opinions on how to best support your growing child. Remove any stress around what you can and cannot eat, and learn how to care for your body during pregnancy. A prenatal nutrition consult will help ensure you’re eating what’s best for you and your baby. We'll work together to help you experience optimal weight gain in pregnancy, make the transition to your new normal, and make informed decisions about when & how to wean if you choose to breastfeed.

 
 Julie always answers you honestly. She listens and actually answers the question that you are asking. She is always there as quickly as she can be in her busy schedule to answer all my questions - and I have a lot of them!
