About

If you always thought nutrition is confusing, now you can find the guidance you need to achieve your nutritional goals.

As a licensed and Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and Certified LEAP Therapist. Deb has an extensive background in finding creative solutions to resolve many different food and nutrition challenges.

Deb began her career as clinical dietitian in a hospital where she loved helping patients understand modified diets to improve their health. Later Deb opened a private practice to reach a greater number of people and do what she loves – helping them happily achieve their nutritional goals. The name Approach Nutrition was chosen when Deb found herself saying to her clients “What approach would you like to take?” while they were collaborating on the best nutrition plan.

Approach Nutrition grew. Deb specialized in weight management, eating disorders, food allergies, gastrointestinal disorders, and healthy eating.

“I want to help you discover how to enjoy what you eat and choose foods that will help you feel great.”

Deb tailors programs to the specific needs of her clients. Deb has consulted for several medical offices, including a large pediatric and adult allergy practice. Whether it’s for yourself, your family, your friends, or co-workers now is the time to get a jump start on a healthy eating plan.

Deb loves to talk and write about food and nutrition. Many lay and professional groups have enjoyed her presentations. She loves getting the nutrition message out through the media, has been featured in magazines, newspapers, websites, and on tv and radio talk shows. One of her favorites media jobs was when USA Today hired her to help a woman lose weight after having a baby. Deb’s guidance helped the woman change her eating habits to eat healthy, lose weight, and look great. The story was a 2 page feature article in USA Today.

Deb is ready to help you too!
