  • Who generally comes to see us?

Most clients are coming because of personal health challenges, such as cancer, lyme disease, hypoglycemia and diabetes, fibromyalgia, allergies, cardiovascular disease, pregnancy, fertility, women’s health issues,  generally not feeling well (but the medical establishment can’t find a specific disorder), lung and breathing disorders, anxiety, depression, stress related illnesses, memory problems, and more. However, we also see clients who simply wish to retain their health and become more vibrant and have even greater energy during the day to be able to pursue their other life’s goals without being held back by the twitches and pains that can arise when our basic diet is not in balance.

Our clients are of all ages, from newborn to advanced age.

  • What can you expect from a counseling session?

It will give you practical tools to be successful: guidelines on selecting the most healthful foods, remedies and lifestyle for you, as well as a clear understanding of the role of food in health.

Recommendations tailored to your specific needs will bring about the most dramatic change in your life, health and wellbeing. Answering personal questions will allow you to release confusion and doubts, so that you can whole-heartedly embark on this new journey of discovery of true health and joy.

We will assist individuals in finding the appropriate course of action with focus on solution-oriented answers that are practical and realistic. Your questions maybe related to physical, emotional or mental challenges going on in your life.

You can schedule in person sessions, or via skype or facetime.

  • How often do I schedule a counseling session?

A singular consultation can be helpful to establish a good baseline for your health and happiness, however in our experience greater and lasting change – especially with serious illness takes place when clients return for support 2- 3 times throughout a year to integrate changes on all levels (nutritional/physical, mental and emotional).

We know how difficult it can be at times to navigate our complex lives elegantly and to improve our overall health and well-being. Even if you have taken many courses, once back in your home environment it can be challenging to implement changes.

Clients who have chosen to utilize a regular support program are actually doing and feeling better, getting results and implementing positive changes in their daily lives.

  •  Please note that all guidance is educational in nature.

We are not a medical doctors and we encourage you to consult with your doctor in addition to choosing a counseling session with us.

With a background in Food Science and over 30 years of experience in Macrobiotic Counseling, teaching cooking, diagnosis and health care, as well as over 20 years of experience in parenting we will outline and help you implement dietary and lifestyle guidelines and/or spiritual practices to promote the foundations for a life filled with joy, vitality and living a meaningful life.
