YEARS OF COMBINED EXPERIENCE
I first came to Heather after seeking treatment with various doctors and nutritionists, even having my gallbladder removed, to get relief from digestive issues that seemed impossible to resolve. I was completely unaware that my digestive issues were only one symptom of many that were diet related, including hair loss, acne, eczema, joint pain, hormonal imbalances, insomnia, anxiety/ADHD, the list is endless. In a very short time Heather was able to identify the cause of these problems and help me drastically improve my physical/mental health and the way I feel on a daily basis. It has been an eye opening and life changing process and I’m so thankful!Karen
I’ve struggled with chronic eczema for decades. I’ve been to doctors, dermatologists and specialists; my bathroom counter is covered in lotions, ointments and topical creams. Nothing seemed to work. When a friend suggested I see a nutritionist, I will admit, I was pretty skeptical but since I’d exhausted every other avenue I thought “why not?”. One month into an elimination diet, my eczema is almost 100% gone. I don’t have any irritation, I’m not constantly itching, skin looks great and I feel wonderful. I can’t thank Heather enough. I would absolutely recommend Heather to anyone having eczema, skin irritation or any dietary concerns. She’s extremely easy to talk to, she is a great listener and offers excellent advice on a wide range of topics. I can honestly say Heather has changed my life.Pete
I loved my time spent with Heather. She helped me to develop a healthy relationship with food and gain confidence in myself. I can mindfully eat without worrying about the number on the scale.Michelle
Nutrition was always so confusing to me. Heather helped me to debunk diet myths and learn to provide my body with adequate energy to perform like I should. I have never had so much energy!Tiffany
I took the LEAPS test and I am SO thankful I did! I suffered from IBS, migraines and chronic fatigue and all of that is completely gone! It is worth every penny!Will
