“In 2013, I consulted with Emily regarding my three year old who had a very sensitive stomach. This problem had been long-standing and the pediatrician was unable to identify the cause. Emily approached the problem by isolating food groups and observing my child’s complaints. Emily’s winning personality, her ability to interact with both my child and me, and her practical approach to a confusing food issue resulted in a happy healthy child. Thank you, Emily, for your kind, conscientious, and professional treatment.”

I love working with Emily! It is like having a good friend who knows tons about nutrition
“I value the following traits Emily brings to our consultations:
1. Amazing recall: she remembers more than I do about my ‘issues’ and the approaches we have tried
2. Very strategic: she starts by addressing the most obvious solution first and changes no more than one thing at a time so the cause and effect can be isolated.
3. Breadth of knowledge: she seems to be very familiar with traditional supplements as well alternative therapy supported by research
4. Great follow-up: always punctual and delivers what she promises
5. Totally invested in my success”
As an endocrinologist... I have many patients with diabetes, obesity and other endocrinologic diseases that I treat and proudly refer to Emily for direction and sound advice.
I thoroughly enjoy my time working with her and find her to be a truly valuable asset to the clinical care team. She is reliable, intelligent, and creative. Beyond that, she is able to foster patience compliance through education and guidance.
Her knowledge of nutrition and expertise in the effects of nutrition on diabetes and on disease, in general, is a huge advantage to the clinic and our patients. She put this skillset to work in order to improve patient outcomes.
… She is a true team player, and always manages to encourage positive discussions and bring the best out of her patients…”

Lucky to have you as my nutritionist
“I’m deeply grateful to you for the valuable information you gave me regarding my health and lifestyle issues. And thank you for your summary of the main points that you addressed.

She worked closely with my daughter and my daughter’s therapist to help her overcome her eating disorder but she also transformed my family’s relationship with food. Her step by step intuitive eating practice taught all of us how to eat mindfully. Emily is one of a kind nutritionist.”

She is always very professional, and she maintains a great sense of humor. Emily has made it possible for me to make progress on overcoming one of the biggest challenges in my life. ”
I couldn’t recommend [Emily] more highly
“I have a multi-layered and very complicated health history. My doctor informed me that I needed to gain weight. Not only did Emily take time to listen to my health history and ask questions, but she had also gone through my medical records and most recent test results and she had done research on a rare medication. I was completely blown away by her professionalism and kindness. I walked away from my first appointment feeling empowered and hopeful. Most importantly, she gave me confidence that if I made some simple changes I would start feeling better. Thanks to Emily’s support, I no longer have the unpleasant symptoms that come from being underweight. Emily embodies that perfect combo of expertise and compassion that drives successful health outcomes. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
