“I just wanted to say thank you for giving me such a great foundation for getting my life back. When I was seeing you, I had been bingeing about two times a week but as of now, I haven't binged or had the desire to binge in two months. I do not count calories, mearsure food, or weigh food. I have found that intuitive eating really works for me. I do not know my weight nor do I care to know it. Thank you for helping me get to a place in my life where I am happy and free. Thank you again!” -- Emily

My relationship with food has changed. It is no longer the enemy. I used to take my scale on vacations! I no longer have to weigh myself every day. Because I was lucky enough to find Linda, I am a happier, healthier and lighter me. I am becoming the person who I always wanted to be. Sounds corny, I know, but I thank her every day!!!-- Tinita

Hi Linda, I just wanted to give you a update on my status. I went back and forth trying different things and 6 weeks ago I went 100% gluten free. The first 2 weeks were horrible and I ate things with gluten that killed my stomach. The last 4 weeks have been great and I have now lost 7.2 lbs. I am able to work out and not worry about going to the bathroom. My potty breaks are under 5 mins unlike when I use to sit there for ½ hour. I am still taking all my vitamins that you suggested and I now shop at Wholefoods every other week. I’m even starting to like the gluten free bread.

Anyway I just wanted to say “THANK YOU” since you were the only one that listened to my problems and was able to help me. -- Terry

just wanted to thank you so much. You are excellent at what you do and both Brian and I came away feeling really glad that we met with you. Brian is doing great. I have noticed him making changes here and there, eating more slowly, thinking about whether he's hungry or not and accepting some of the changes I've made in the meals I prepare for him. -- Sue



I work with men, women, children and adolescents, providing individual Medical Nutrition therapy, (MNT), in the following areas:

My medical nutrition therapy practice includes the following specialties:

Eating disorders/disordered eating. Medical Nutrition Therapy provided by a registered dietitian trained in the area of eating disorders plays a significant role in the treatment and management of eating disorders including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or binge eating disorder.

lunchIntuitive Eating -- Creating a Healthy Relationship with Food, Mind & Body What Is Intuitive Eating? Intuitive eating is an approach that teaches you how to create a healthy relationship with your food, mind, and body--where you ultimately become the expert of your own body. You learn how to distinguish between physical and emotional feelings, and gain a sense of body wisdom. It's also a process of making peace with food---so that you no longer have constant "food worry" thoughts. It's knowing that your health and your worth as a person does not change because you ate a so-called "bad" or "fattening" food." Evelyn Tribole, M.S., R.D; Elyse Resch, M.S., R.D., F.A.D.A.

PCOS. The role of the dietitian is key in the treatment of PCOS. A balance of the food the patients eat is an important part of treating PCOS. One of the most important treatments for obese patients should be weight loss and exercise. A 5-10% weight loss has shown significant biochemical and clinical improvement. Studies have shown menstrual cycles and fertility have improved with weight loss. Also androgen production and hirsutism has decreased in weight loss.

Gluten intolerance and Celiac Disease. If you have been diagnosed with celiac disease you have undoubtedly been told you must follow a gluten-free diet that creates certain nutritional risks. Because of this the American Celiac Disease Alliance, the Digestive Disease National Coalition, the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America, and many individual doctors recommend that a registered dietitian should be part of the health care team that monitors the patient’s nutritional status and compliance with the diet.
