My Nutrition Philosophy
Hi, I’m Gabriella!
I believe in making simple and sustainable changes to how you eat without unnecessary restrictions or food rules.
While working with clients, I consider all aspects of your life: dietary intake, nutrient deficiencies, health history, laboratory data, stress, sleep, and physical activity. Using this information, I work with you to create a personalized plan that addresses the root cause of your digestive symptoms, blood sugar imbalances, or whatever health goal we’re working on.
Free 20-minute Discovery Call
Book a free 20-minute discovery call. This is an opportunity for me to learn about your health challenges and goals and answer any questions you may have about working together to determine if scheduling an initial consultation is the next step for you.
Initial Consultation (60-minutes) – $60
The purpose of this session is to assess your current nutrition and health status by discussing your medical history, diet history, usual food patterns and preferences, supplement use, sleep, stress, and physical activity habits.
Follow-up Sessions (30-minutes) – $30
In these sessions, we work together to create an action plan to address your nutrition and health goals, review your progress, and work through challenges that may come up as you implement your nutrition plan.
What health conditions do your clients have?
- Pre-diabetes/blood sugar inbalances
- Digestive health problems
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Heartburn or GERD
- High cholesterol
- Food allergies
Do you help with weight loss?
No. I practice a HAES (Health At Every Size) approach and do not use weight or weight changes as a measurement for progress. Instead, I focus on sustainable behavior change and, if appropriate, changes in lab values to measure progress. Weight loss may occur when you start making changes in diet and lifestyle, but it’s never the end goal.
Are there conditions that you don’t work with?
I do not work with individuals with some conditions that require specialized experience that I do not have, including:
- Kidney disease
- Active eating disorders
Do you offer virtual sessions?
Yes. I conduct all sessions virtually by video.
Due to licensing laws, I can only work with individuals living in the green or yellow states on THIS MAP and the District of Columbia.
