Got Stress?

It’s easy to get caught up being busy with work and day-to-day life. Taking time out to focus on yourself is crucial and we want to provide a comfortable relaxing environment for exactly that. Caregiver Coaching is part of our services and also available separately for extended support.

Training & Experience

You're in good hands! Emily is proud to offer graduate-level training, 1,000-hours of supervised practice, and a rigorous board examination, coupled with hundreds of hours of post-graduate training and 8 years of clinical experience.

Trauma-Informed Care

Our deeply personalized approach and additional training in mind-body medicine aims to create a safe space to explore healing. We offer education and accountability, but allow you to take the lead.

Health Analysis

The review of recent labs from your physician through the lens of nutrition is part of our services. Functional testing may also be available at an additional cost (location-dependent).

Flexible Payment Options

We are in-network with CIGNA and Blue Cross Blue Shield (coverage varies by plan and location), offer superbills for out-of-network reimbursement, and can negotiate payments plans for cash-pay clients.

Weight-Neutral Approach

Fostering a healthy relationship to food is paramount in our approach to pediatric nutrition and caregiver coaching. We focus on education and empowerment, not on shaming and restriction.

Care Coordination

We take pride in being a proactive part of your care team! We provide updates and foster communication with your providers to help you feel supported as an advocate for your care.

Our [work together] remains in my heart, as you were so warm and engaging. You care! I admire your heart for health and especially for children.
