I help individuals who suffer from chronic health issues from diabetes. I help you to get control of your symptoms and live the best life possible.

I can help you because I have had Type 1 diabetes for over 51 years and know what you are going through on a daily basis.

I am dedicated to helping those with diabetes and related health issues cope with the every day challenges that this disease brings. If you are looking for a registered dietitian for diabetes and to provide diet counseling in Austin, Texas, you've come to the right place. Although I am located in Austin, I can help anyone in the world with Telehealth and video communication.

My clients come to me for all types of nutrition counseling related to their diabetic symptoms and control of blood sugar. I can also provide guidance on pump therapy, and how to manage your food and diet. I have type 1 diabetes and know the struggle. Certified as a diebetic educator, I have the experience and knowledge to help you with your struggles.

I want you to empower you to learn how to listen to your body, learn how to manage your diabetes, and have a better relationship with food.

What others are saying

"I think will be never late to wish you a Happy New Year. I received your Christmas card. Thanks a lot. It meant a lot to me since it was the only card I received on the mail, now everybody uses social media for that purpose.

I had a Gastric Bypass Surgery on Dec 30th and stayed 2 nights at St. Davis Hospital. I think that is the best decision I took since the surgeon said, probably wont have to get insulin when I loose weight. I already complete 2 weeks just with fluids and started puree foods last Monday. I was 240 pounds on Oct 29. I had to be on diet the last 15 days of the surgery, similar as the one you gave me, getting just 35 grams of Carbohydrate each meal. I am currently 218 pounds today. My abdomen is still inflamed because of the procedure.

Thanks a lot for your help. You are a great professional and I am lucky to be your patient."
