Nutrition Counseling

I provide nutrition counseling to support women’s health. From pregnancy to postpartum and through menopause even adolescents and teens need nutrition support. Our energy needs continuously change through a female’s life. Understanding your body and what nutrients you specifically need helps you feel empowered, confident and at peace with yourself. 

Working together we focus on:

Nourishing nutrition
Non-diet approach
Intuitive eating
Making it easy for you

I offer in-person and virtual sessions. This allows flexibility for your schedule. Whether you want to come see me in a calm and peaceful setting to focus on your health or schedule a follow up on your lunch break virtually or during your munchkins nap time, I am always here to support you.  

*In Network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare

Whether you’re thinking of starting a family, are pregnant or recently had a baby, I help women through these stages. A woman’s body goes through so much change with each of these transitions, fertility, pregnancy and postpartum and with that nutritional needs change. It’s important to take care of yourself, to nourish your body as you go through each of these phases. 

Here's How I can Help:

Family Planning

here's how I can help

If you’re trying to conceive I can help you eat the right foods and nutrients to support your fertility.

If you’re pregnant I can help you through each trimester and make sure you’re getting what you need to support you and your growing baby.

If you’re in the postpartum period - getting the right nutrition can help you recover quicker and have more energy. It took 9 months for you to grow a little human, it takes longer to recover up to 2 years!

It doesn’t matter how old you are so many struggle to have a healthy relationship with food. No matter what you schedule an appointment for, I approach all my clients with the same philosophy. It’s time to have a healthy relationship with food. I use a mindful intuitive approach that encourages self care, self love and balance, never restrictive.
I work with women that struggle with binge eating, purging, and restrictive intake. It’s time to let go of the diet mentality and love yourself for who you are!

Be kind and loving to yourself

Disordered Eating

Hormonal and Gut Health

Creating sustainable life long health habits, doesn’t happen overnight and it doesn’t happen after one session. It’s not easy to make changes, especially ones that have been instilled in you for so long. 
I'm here to help you meet YOUR needs, so YOU can be successful! We’ll discover the area of nutrition you feel stuck in and the areas that need a boost.  My goal is for you to feel confident in yourself and your choices.

Family Nutrition Support

Family dinners should be a place of love and a chance to connect with one another. If the thought of family dinners and making one meal for everyone is a source of stress, I can help you and your children look forward to family dinners and bring back a positive experience to the table. This program is designed for your child to form a healthy relationship with food and feel confident in themselves and their choices. All too often kids and teens are exposed to diet culture from various outlets. As a result they may form a disordered eating pattern by restricting their intake or become picky about certain foods.

They will enjoy ALL food without guilt
Find confidence in themselves and their choices
Be confident in the kitchen 
Incorporate and like new foods at meal time
Gain knowledge that will empower them as they continue to grow up

Working With Me

"Marissa has taken the frustration out of food choices, weighing, and calorie counting for me. I was obsessed with this every time I went to eat anything. I am happier and more self loving. I have more energy and more patience because of it. "

happy clients...

"I was stuck in fad diets and I didn’t know how to eat in a healthy manner without depriving myself. She gave me new meal ideas and reminded me it’s okay to give in to a craving and to be kinder to myself."
