Consultation Features

 
 

Brain-based, Trauma-informed Nutritional Therapy consultations

With her Master's in Counseling and Certification as a Nutritional Therapist, Serina combines her experience in the counseling field with her training in nutrition to offer you the most comprehensive nutritional care and support in achieving your health and wellness goals. She uses a trauma-informed, brain-based model of care which focuses on supporting you as an individual and meeting you where you are at to create a program that is specific to your personal needs.

We have found that achieving your wellness goals really depends on having the right kind of support and education along the way. Our personalized nutritional consultations are designed to offer you support in a way that works for YOU. There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition.

The process of attaining your goals is a race, but it is NOT a race against time. Reaching the finish line is what matters to us - NOT how quickly you get there. We will take each step of this journey with you and support you along the way. Steady progress over time is what promotes lasting results; NOT a quick burst of momentum that fizzles out after a short period of time. We are all about sustainability and momentum over time to build lasting healthful habits that keep you health and happy throughout your life!
