Areas of Focus Include:
Counseling for the management or prevention of chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and gastrointestinal issues. Gina will perform a comprehensive nutrition assessment to determine the client’s nutrition diagnosis; plan and implement unique nutrition interventions using evidence-based nutrition practice guidelines, and monitor and evaluate the client’s progress.
Nutrition consultations for optimal health, wellness, energy, and longevity. Services include family nutrition and meal planning, kitchen pantry evaluations and makeovers, nutrition to boost your energy and reduce stress. Gina can also work with you individually to produce nutritious delicious menus, recipes and personal grocery shopping guides. Clients are encouraged to set realistic weight loss goals that are within their reach, rather than setting the goals so high that they may set them up for failure. Gina’s goal is to help clients find a balance between enjoying food while maintaining good health.
Gina specializes in and works with people who struggle with eating disorders, body image and weight concerns, as well as emotional eating. Gina believes in treating the person, not the disorder. Eating disorders and disordered eating counseling focuses on the nutritional and physical aspects of anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and emotional eating. Nutrition therapy provides clients with knowledge and skills, which will help to feed the body for physical recovery. Nutrition therapy involves educating the client of the physical dangers of disordered eating, while helping them to achieve a normal relationship with food. The non-diet counseling approach promotes intuitive eating though reestablishing a normal pattern of eating and eliminating or decreasing the frequency of behaviors.
