Philosophy:

No matter what I am working on, I find myself needing to figure why we are in the situation we are in, whether it is related to diabetes control, kidney function being lower than desired, issues maintaining weight, or whatever other issue we are problem solving. As a Registered Dietitian specialized in diabetes education & weight management, I educate and guide on making changes according to the answer to the “why”s., by using an approach that is individualized to everyone’s individual needs.
