Our Philosophy

"The first wealth is health."- Ralph Waldo Emerson
I believe in order to experience rich, meaningful lives, we need to invest in the tools required to optimize our health and well-being.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to well-being.

Jessica’s approach to clients involves taking the time to understand specific concerns/goals, and crafting a realistic, sustainable plain tailored to each client’s needs. Jessica helps get to the root of the issue, and helps clients achieve their personal health ideals.

A diagnosis of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, or kidney disease is not the end, but rather a new beginning and opportunity to take charge of your health.

Jessica skillfully helps clients in their journey of accepting the heavy burden of a diagnosis, and partners with them to create a plan that restores the client’s power of their situation through the development of healthful habits.

You are not your diagnosis.

Too often, people choose to identify with their disease, and let it define them. Your disease is probably the least interesting thing about you. Jessica helps her clients lean into the more interesting facets of themselves- their personality, talents, accomplishments, goals, etc. by assisting them in managing their health so it does not become all-consuming.

Nutrition counseling should not involve judgment or shaming, just support and guidance.

Many dietitians have earned the unflattering moniker “Food Police.” Jessica’s approach is disarming and compassionate. Rather than suggesting clients be robbed of their favorite foods, she figures out how to balance food preferences and health needs. Enabling clients to incorporate their favorite “bad” foods on occasion helps ward off diet fatigue and stress, and enhances quality of life.

Nutrition doesn’t have to be complicated.

Jessica helps you sift through the mixed messages about health and nutrition touted by the media and self-proclaimed experts, and devises a plan with the input of her clients that is simple, straightforward, and sustainable.

Food is meant to be enjoyed, and adhering to a diet plan does not mean fun and flavor retire.

Jessica has counseled hundreds of clients on strategies to enhance the taste and flavor of foods without derailing their health goals. She ardently believes you should no have to choose between enjoyment and health.
