Kate's role is to help you, or your child, create a positive relationship with real, wholesome food - through education, meal planning & behavioral changes that fit your lifestyle.

"I approach nutrition in a whole body, personalized manner with you goals as my primary focus. With evidenced-based advice, I provide you with the tools to make food and lifestyle recommendations that can properly fuel your body. Food is the foundation of health. Our bodies are machines, we have to fuel our machine and we need to care for our machine. I believe life and food should both be enjoyed, and I can help you build a better relationship with food that translates into lifelong nourishment. "The greatest wealth is health"."
""Five Element acupuncture is the foundation and backbone of my practice. This is an elegant and beautiful system of medicine that helps people heal and maintain balance at a deep level. Each person has an innate healing ability. By listening and gathering information about a person's life I can help to stimulate their own healing potential and guide them towards balance and health. I also encourage lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise. In addition to Five Element acupuncture I incorporate Dr Tan's Balance Method and Zero Balancing, a type of bodywork, which balances body energy and structure through touch."
"I have been counseling individuals on healthy eating for over twenty years. My diverse work experience can attest to my extensive knowledge base of nutrition. I provide the support and reassurance needed to make seemingly overwhelming changes achievable. My expert guidance will help you to make the positive lifestyle changes you need to adopt a healthier living plan. My office is open Monday through Saturday with additional evening appointments, four days a week. It's a great opportunity to see a dietitian without having to take extra time off from work."
"Are you frustrated with conflicting health and nutrition messages? Vitamin E is good for you... No, not so much... Supplements are not going to hurt you... Well, some of them actually do, as recent research shows... And what about saturated fat and blood cholesterol? It seemed like such a mainstay, but now the Atkins diet seems to be better for heart health than AHA Step 1, 2, whatever? I have to admit that I am partially personally to blame: I have begun my research career at the USDA Human Nutrition Center on Aging, in 1990ies."
"My specialty is identifying the underlying cause of a chronic problem, meaning its emotional basis, and addressing this by accurate selection of a constitutional homeopathic remedy. Following my initial consult clients often report that I know them better than any close friend or relative. I routinely treat: depression, Attention Deficit Disorder, eating disorders, hyperactivity, anxiety, fibromyalgia, asthma, sinusitis, chronic ear and other infections, fatigue, migraine headache, IBS, PTSD, GERD, eczema, allergies, urinary tract infection, dysmenorrhea, menopausal ailments, and infertility. I see infants, children, adults, and occasionally pets. I find treating multiple family members offers a bonus: improved family dynamics."
