You’re Not Alone. We’re Here to Help!
We talk about nutrition in a way that most people have never heard before. Our emphasis goes way beyond calories and macro-nutrients. We help people explore the profound impact that food has on the brain, the gut, and the endocrine system (hormones).
We are behavioral health nutritionists, recognizing the challenges faced when attempting to make lasting health changes. We will help you on the path to a new way of life. If you struggle with food and/or body image, Nutrition in Recovery is the program for you. We will show you how to navigate the tricky food terrain with confidence. There is no “one size fits all” approach to recovery.
