Services

As a Registered Dietitian, I provide clinical and non-clinical services to those in Canada, and am licenced in every province except PEI.

I also provide non-clinical nutrition education services to those outside of Canada on an hourly basis, as well as in packages such as the Meal Plan Package, and follow-up Weight Loss Package and Anti-Inflammatory Package. Please scroll to the bottom of this page for information about these services.

The icons make it easy to know if a service is available where you live.

HOURLY SERVICES

Hourly Services are a great option for those who would like to meet me to discuss their needs, or the needs of a family member and to see if I am a “good fit”. They are also ideal for taking the services available as packages, but billed on an hourly basis (as required by some extended benefits plans).

The SMART Goal Setting session is perfect for setting New Years’ resolutions which are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant (or realistic) and time-bound.  

PACKAGES

Specialty Clinical Packages 

The Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Package is designed for clients who have been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease such as Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis and want to know what to eat to minimize the symptoms during ‘flare ups’, and then how to progressively begin eating a more normalized diet once flare ups have resolved, and which reduce the likelihood of discomfort.

The Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Package is designed for clients who have had clinical conditions such as Inflammatory Bowel Disorder (Crohn’s, Colitis etc.) and Celiac disease ruled out, or who need to have them ruled out and who require support to determine which foods or food components and/or beverages are contributing to their ongoing, unpleasant gastrointestinal symptoms.

The Celiac Disease Management Package provides detailed teaching for those diagnosed with Celiac Disease (IgA-mediated gluten intolerance) and follows the recommended teaching outline of the Canadian Celiac Association.

The Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) Support Package is designed for clients who have had clinical conditions such as Inflammatory Bowel Disorder (Crohn’s, Colitis etc.) and Celiac disease ruled out, and who have been — or are in the process of being diagnosed with SIBO.

The Food Sensitivity / Food Allergy Package is a specialty package designed for clients who have been diagnosed with food allergies by a physician, or who suspect they may be sensitized to certain foods or to components of foods.

Complete Assessment Package

The Complete Assessment Package is the all-inclusive package for clients from Canada who want to eat healthier and/or lose (or gain) weight, or are seeking to put the symptoms of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol into remission.

If outside of Canada, please see the Meal Plan Package below.

There are several optional add-on teachings that can be added to the Complete Assessment Package at a cost savings from taking them on an hourly basis, and these include;

The Gout Option is an optional add-on that will teach how to lower uric acid (urate) levels to minimize the risk of gout.

The Hypothyroid add-on is for those newly diagnosed and explains which nutrients are important, which foods are good sources of those nutrients, and which foods may be helpful to eat less of and why.

The Diverticulosis Option is an optional add-on for those who have diverticulosis (little bulges) in their colon so that they can minimize constipation, and the risk of diverticulitis.

Follow-up Packages 

The Dietary Management Package is for those who’ve already completed the Complete Assessment Package in the last 6 months and would like additional support or coaching as they implement their Individual Meal Plan or work on weight loss, or metabolic health remission.
