Lisa’s passion and drive for helping others improve their quality of life, in whatever that may be, has seen many success’ stories come from her patients.  Lisa has also had regular supervision with Glenn, helping her understand eating behavior change from a psychological perspective as well as a nutritional perspective, and this understanding we believe makes all the difference in creating lasting change for our clients.  Having a dietitian who understands how to identify relevant psycho-dietetic issues, listen and work collaboratively with you and the rest of your professional support team, and provide recommendations that are psychologically minded and sustainable for the long-term is key to having a successful experience with your dietitian.  With clients’ permission, Lisa and Glenn speak regularly about each client, working as a team with each person to develop an individual approach most likely to succeed for them!  Lisa’s fantastic work is provided by our good friends Tree of Life Nutrition.
