About Elizabeth

Hello and welcome! I am a bilingual registered dietitian and a certified diabetes care and education specialist with specialty training in insulin pumps, medication management and continuous glucose monitor technology. I started out over 20 years ago as a sports nutritionist working with NFL athletes. I have also been a part of a multidisciplinary team at hospitals as a clinical dietitian seeing patients with chronic health conditions. I progressed to outpatient care as a weight loss and bariatric nutrition coordinator. My most passionate endeavor involves pediatric and adult endocrinology. My expertise is focused on weight management, especially metabolic related health conditions.

Approach to care

Clients can easily communicate their concerns because I am very personable and empathetic. I use a person centered approach to care by using motivational interviewing techniques. Every client is special and what I like to call a “work in progress”. I focus on your skills, strengths, and past successes while encouraging clients to talk about their need for change and reasons for wanting to change. My work is personal, and I am committed to finding practical and innovative solutions, providing you with the latest health and research information. I love to be a part of your journey of transformation into a healthier, happier you.

Your first session with Elizabeth

It is easy to feel overwhelmed and confused with health issues and medical concerns, especially if you know what you want but don’t have any idea where to begin. Clients will feel comfortable and confident that all their health and nutrition concerns will be addressed in a comprehensive manner. I am excited to integrate a fresh perspective and breadth of knowledge into the session. You will feel understood, assured with individualized guidance, nutritional education, encouragement, and support. The goal is to have you feel accomplished but mostly glad you took the first step towards a new journey.
