What is Nutritional Counseling?

Nutritional counseling is often also referred to as medical nutritional therapy (MNT). It is an ongoing process whereby a health professional works with an individual to assess a person’s dietary intake, identify areas of change, and provide education and support to help them make the changes necessary for healing. Often this counseling is sought after as it relates to a specific, diagnosed condition. The focus is on dietary changes with a secondary focus on lifestyle modifications.

Schedule Now

Free Focus Session -15-minute free phone consultation

This is the first step in working together. Consider this a mini-private consult. This allows us time to chat, understand your goals, specific health challenges, and where you need to focus. You will learn more about my approach to nutrition and wellness and from there we can determine the appropriate next steps.

Counseling Initial Consultation - 75-minutes

During the initial intake, we will discuss your goals, health, lifestyle, and individual concerns. Each session is individualized and the information provided reflects that. At the end of the session, we will discuss and design a plan which works with your lifestyle and is achievable.

Counseling Follow-Up Consultations - 30 to 45 minutes

Follow-up sessions are offered every 1-4 weeks after the initial consultation meeting and are typically 30-45 minutes in length. In these meetings we review your successes, discuss any challenges, and devise modifications as necessary to your initial individualized plan.

Nutritionally Related Testing - Individual & Appointment Based

Based on the appointment and individual, sometimes additional testing is warranted to help determine the root cause of dysfunction. This may include stool testing, food sensitivity testing, organic acid testing, extensive micronutrient testing, and salivary testing.

Get to know Tina

My journey to becoming an integrative clinical nutritionist was not direct. For many years I didn’t give much thought to how food and lifestyle factors impacted my health, except as it related to running. An active runner since college, understanding how food and lifestyle factors impacted my performance had long interested me. However, aside from viewing food as fuel, I never really thought about the functional aspects of food–especially as it relates to “food as medicine.”

That all changed in 2011…

Testimonials

I first learned of Christina from another patient/client who was very pleased with her service. When I decided to make an appointment, I was experiencing intestinal problems that made me feel terrible. Christina recommended a specific diet and supplements for me that aided in better system functioning which in turn helped me to feel better In addition, her counseling made me aware of what I ate, how it made me feel, and most of all, what I shouldn't put in my body. It was not an easy process for me but I am glad I took that first step.

Working with Christina has been an integral step in taking more control over my health, and making a real change. She has always been helpful, supportive, and informative, and never comes from a place of judgment or shame. She really makes it a point that your experience a collaborative effort, and makes sure the goals set are reasonable. My journey with Christina has been life-changing, very positive, and encouraging! I would recommend Christina to anyone who wants to see a nutritionist to help their health.

I had pretty much been cruising through life eating/drinking whatever, whenever I wanted. Then my annual physical presented situations that made me evaluate what I was doing to myself. Pre-diabetic, overweight, poor nutritional balance were the key elements. I mentioned my medical evaluation to my yoga instructor who, without hesitation, recommended I get a meeting with Tina. And am I glad I took the recommendation! During my initial meeting with Tina, she put me at ease not only with her engaging personality but also by talking to me and not above my knowledge level on nutrition. She went on to explain our working relationship and made a clear point that she could provide the plan, but it was up to me to become engaged. It has been a successful partnership ever since. After I completed my evaluation Tina put my plan in place. At first, it appeared daunting, I have to admit. But please know, I've never looked back. I'm no longer pre-diabetic with numbers so low my doctor was truly amazed at my turnaround. I took 20+ unwanted pounds off my frame. I have more energy, endurance, and positivity. Food is now fuel and balanced with my enjoyment of wine and dark chocolate! Equally important is Tina's ongoing support! She's responsive to my questions be it on protein, greens, wellness, etc. She's always there for me. With great sincerity, I encourage you to put your faith in Tina. She's the ultimate knowledgeable professional. I'm confident, if you're serious, she will help you just as she has me and others.
