Cooking & Wellness Instructor

You can find me teaching at a variety of venues throughout California (see the up-to-date list on the left of this page). I also teach classes in private homes and in corporate settings. You can also schedule a private class for groups of 6 – 8 people. Get in touch to learn more.

Therapeutic Chef

I know that food truly is medicine—medicine that can aid in supporting a wide variety of health challenges. I share my knowledge of healing foods in both private and group settings to support your well being. I work with clients, side by side, in their kitchens to teach them how to cook to support their well being.

As a Therapeutic Chef, I:

  • Create personalized plans to support your health challenges (e.g., blood sugar management, digestive health, weight management).
  • Customize plans for your short- and long-term needs.
  • Specialize in teaching culinary techniques that can be used over and over again to support health goals.

Eating Psychology Coach

As an Eating Psychology Coach, I help clients address weight concerns, binge eating, overeating, body image challenges, and nutrition-related health concerns. My approach is positive and empowering. I don’t see your eating challenges as a sign that “something is wrong with you” but as a place where we can explore some of the personal dimensions that impact weight, health and your relationship with food.

As an Eating Psychology Coach, I recognize that:

  • The tired, old equation “fewer calories + more exercise = weight loss success” does not work for the vast majority of us.
  • Food issues are rarely just about food.
  • Understanding who my clients are as eaters is more important than what they eat.

As a result, the work I do with clients is highly individualized. I am available to meet in person, over the phone or via Zoom/FaceTime. My rates are $100/hour or you can purchase a series of 6 sessions for $550.
