I specialize in people living with diabetes and pre-diabetes as well as hypertension, heart disease, gi distress, food intolerances and inflammation, through understanding your learning style and lifestyle challenges. Learning to maximize your health can be overwhelming. My goal is to help you develop a plan you can embrace that will not only improve your blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol, body weight, or other clinical parameters, but empower you to believe in yourself as an effective and successful health self-manager.

I am happy to do a home visit: together we can review your pantry and refrigerator choices and visit your local food market. Between visits, I can provide feedback on your blood sugar levels, activity and diet via any health app you may be using or via email with logs I can provide. I bring a toolkit of educational materials and multiple teaching tools.

I listen, I inquire, I coach. I focus on your concerns and barriers. I help you set goals you can achieve. Client Feedback: "Merle is empathic and passionate about helping people. She is great at translating complicated physiological theories into totally understandable concepts. I wish I had met her years ago." Marvin T.
