Cynthia offers personalized counseling and coaching to individuals, couples, and families for:
- Weight management
- Sports nutrition
- Natural and organic eating
- Vegetarian and vegan nutrition
- Disordered eating
- Nutrition for wellness, disease prevention, and optimal energy
Cynthia offers nutrition coaching for healthy adults (no significant past medical history, no existing medical conditions). Coaching does not include a clinical nutrition assessment, and is not an option for people with any existing medical conditions that require a customized therapeutic diet, such as thyroid conditions, high blood pressure, digestive disorders, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc. Coaching sessions are ideal for clients seeking a nutrition "check up" who want to pick Cynthia's brain, and receive feedback, direction, guidance, and support. Coaching sessions can be scheduled for 30 or 60 minutes, and can take place in person, or via phone.
Individualized Nutrition Counseling
This option is more in-depth, individualized, and appropriate for adults with existing medical conditions that require a customized therapeutic diet, or for clients who desire a customized nutrition plan. Counseling sessions can take place in person, or via phone.
Cynthia’s primary specialties for individualized nutrition counseling include:
-Nutrition plans for competitive and professional athletes
-Customized weight management
-Overcoming emotional eating
-Vegetarian and vegan nutrition
-Natural and organic eating
-Nutrition for optimal health, energy, anti-aging, and disease prevention
In Cynthia's one-on-one work with clients who struggle with weight issues, she teaches a strategy for how to eat that soon becomes intuitive, then feels like your new normal. She specializes in working with women and men who:
-Have been on numerous diets but still struggle with weight
-Are disconnected from their bodies
-Eat for emotional reasons and/or eat erratically
-Want help from a food coach, not a food cop
-Want to take charge of their personal health
-Want to be able to enjoy food and look forward to meals without giving up on losing weight safely
-Want to get off the diet rollercoaster and develop a self-nurturing relationship with food
Daily Email Support
Clients can combine nutrition coaching or counseling sessions with daily email support, which entails sending Cynthia your daily food journals via email. Cynthia will reply at least once each day (7 days a week) with feedback, support, guidance, answers to your questions, and when appropriate, "homework assignments."
One of Cynthia's unique services is offering fun, casual, customized workshops to small groups (5-6 people) of friends. If you and your friends share the same questions and challenges about nutrition, weight loss and wellness, contact Cynthia to schedule a "girlfriend group." These customized groups can include anything from a group Q&A to a cooking demo or a class on a specialized topic, such as emotional eating, or moving towards a plant-based diet. Cynthia also offers tailored "girlfriend groups" for friends working toward a similar goal, from losing weight for a special occasion (wedding, vacation, class reunion) to eating right for a race, walk, marathon, or other fitness event.
