How do I know if I need counseling?
If a crisis has occurred that you feel is beyond your ability to manage or cope, counseling may be in order. If you have been working on an issue without any real progress, it might be good idea to get an professional perspective on how to proceed. Generally, if you’re feeling “stuck” and can’t find a way out – it’s time to call a therapist.

What happens in the initial session?
The first session is all about making sure the client and therapist are a good fit.

Why should I meet with a Nutritionist?
Have you heard fats were bad for you, then later read they are good for you?
Have you noticed an extreme increase in the health and fitness craze everywhere you go? You hear about it on the news, talk shows, radio, self-help books, internet, etc. Seeking support from an educated nutritionist for your health concerns and food goals can help you sort through all the information out there and find a plan that works for you.
So, here are 5 key reasons you should meet with an educated nutritionist:
1. Clear the nutrition confusion. A qualified nutritionist stays up-to-date on the nutrition research that is supported by proper scientific standards and then applies it to your specific needs.
2. Change is complicated. There are several steps in changing food behavior to prevent or treat health conditions, and a nutritionist can help you through the all stages of change, as well as prepare you for pitfalls that may arise.
3. Optimize your health. Nutritionists also team up with doctors and other health care professionals to optimize your medical care. A study from 2010 by the journal of Academic medicine stated, “The amount of nutrition education that medical students receive continues to be inadequate.”
4. Family Wellness. Are you pregnant or trying to get pregnant? Breastfeeding an infant? Do you have toddlers, teenagers or aging parents that aren’t eating well? A nutritionist can educate the entire family on foods that will optimize their health during different stages of life. She can also help with difficult eating behaviors such as picky eaters or binge eaters, along with digestion concerns, proper hydration, and more.
5. Live life to the fullest. Do you have a lot going on and feel tired all the time? Do you have stomach upset after eating and do not enjoy the foods you use to eat? A nutritionist can sit with you and help sort through the causes of fatigue, stomach upset, etc. and discuss ways to incorporate positive health-promoting changes.
If your truly willing, a nutritionist will guide you to change habits and live a healthier lifestyle by offering up-to-date nutrition education and motivation to help you achieve your wellness goals.
