Colleen is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner trained at the Nutrition Therapy Institute and certified through the Nutritional Therapy Association, BioIndividual Nutrition Institute and Restorative Wellness Solutions Functional Lab Testing. She is a whole-food and wellness enthusiast and believes that food should please your taste buds while nourishing your body.
Colleen’s interest in holistic nutrition and her journey to becoming a functional nutritionist began with her own health crisis including severe fatigue, hormonal imbalances digestive issues and eating disorders which she reversed through nutrition and wellness practices.
What started as a personal journey evolved into a mission to help others feel empowered and take control of their health.
What Colleen has to say:
We are all wonderfully unique, and, unfortunately, there’s not one magic diet that works best for everyone.
I don’t just write a generic meal plan or hand you a picture of the food pyramid. I look at the whole picture of what makes you, YOU and create a sustainable plan that will allow your body to thrive.
In my practice, many of my clients tell me that they feel overwhelmed with all of the information out there and are not sure how to decipher what would work for them and then implement it into their busy schedules.
Others have experienced ailments for years that no doctor, medicine or procedure has been able to relieve.
Many suffer from fatigue, stubborn weight gain, constant cravings and chronic digestive issues.
If you’re struggling with your health, let me show you just how good you can feel!
