  • Address and manage health issues & medical conditions
  • Prevent sickness & disease

  • Reduce or stop your cravings and binges

You’ve reached the right place!

I offer nutritional counseling and medical nutrition therapy using a “food as medicine” and “whole person approach.”  I focus on whole foods nutrition, targeted dietary therapies, dietary supplements, laboratory assessments and mind body practices to improve health.  I believe that nutrition plays a role that goes beyond calories, and has a direct impact on how the body functions.   I work in partnership with my patients to address  the underlying causes of disease & identify the genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors such as stress, sleep, emotional resiliency, and relationship to food that ultimately influence health and healing.

Work with Mary to make it happen!
