Liz understands how difficult it can be to implement change in your life. Regardless of how motivated you are or how desperate you are to change, life can often get in the way. We're often told "eat your veggies, avoid processed foods, and you should be fine," but what does that look like in real life when it's combined with busy schedules, lack of confidence in the kitchen, lack of ideas for what to make, and when changing our habits is just too damn hard? These are some of the few things that can result in us reverting back to our old ways after giving it the good ol' try.
Liz believes that the key to success is to make small, gradual changes in your daily routine, which result in forming new habits. These small changes are far less overwhelming than an intensive diet, and before you know it, you’ve developed healthy eating habits that you actually enjoy sticking with! Liz also knows that every body, every routine, and every lifestyle is different, and healthy eating will look different to each and every person. She will work with you to help determine what your goals are, whether it be to lose weight, nourish your little ones, gain better control of your diabetes, help alleviate irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, or more, and will work with you one-on-one to achieve them.

What is a Dietitian?
And how are they different from other nutrition professionals?
All dietitians are nutritionists, but not all nutritionists are dietitians.
Dietitians translate scientific, evidence-based, up-to-date information into easy to understand and implement knowledge tailored to your specific needs.
Dietitians have a degree from an accredited university, as well as hands on training throughout a comprehensive internship.
