Susanís Statement of Purpose

ďMaking food choices is one way we empower our lives.  It is a daily activity that supports us to have energy, feel good, look good, and stay well.  Sometimes we just need a little bit of information to help us make the best choices for ourselves.  I want to help by sharing my knowledge and assisting you in being truly nourished.

Nutritional Counseling is a healing profession that is accurately represented by its name.  With half the emphasis on food and the other half on counseling, a good nutritionist knows that eating is profoundly tied to the daily habits of our lives.  Every day we make tens of choices connected to what we eat: where we shop (if we shop); how we prepare food; how much we eat; what will eat and what we wonít eat; what we drink; where we eat; with whom we eat; what we are hungry for, and the list goes on.

Many disease states can be ameliorated by making food choices that decrease inflammation, reduce excess stress on organs, help normalize test values (for example, cholesterol and blood sugar), and decrease fatigue and roller coaster energy states.  Food can be a friend or foe.  I help people make food their healthy friend.Ē
