Feeling great and losing weight

“I found Linda to be really helpful and supportive. She provided me with a lot of great tips and useful information including handouts and books in addition to our talks. She was extremely professional, following up all of our meetings with detailed notes and observations, giving me thoughtful answers to my questions, patiently listening to me, and encouraging me to set and meet goals. Since I started working with her, I lost more than 5 pounds, reduced my stress, improved my diet, and saw an improvement in my gastrointestinal issues”

No more migraines

“I have suffered from migraine headaches since I was a teenager. But now they were much worse – I was getting them for two weeks out of each month and taking very strong prescription medication to treat them.

I started working with Linda to learn how to eat heathier, lose weight, and see if I could figure out what was causing these migraines. Linda encouraged me to add more whole foods into my diet, cut down on processed foods and caffeine, and increase my exercise. By the time we had our last appointment, I hadn’t had a migraine in a month!”
