Start Here - Culinary Therapy


Hi, my name is Lisa, and I’m so glad you’re here.
  • Are you struggling with chronic dieting?
  • Are you often worried about your body size, shape, or weight?
  • Do you have digestive issues like bloating, IBS, or SIBO?
  • Do you feel moody, anxious, or sad?
  • Is a lack of sleep or too much stress impacting your life?
  • Do you have frustrating symptoms or a diagnosis and need a second opinion?

If you’ve answered “yes” to all or some of the above, you’re in the right place.

Here’s the challenge:

In a 2019 global analysis, the US ranked #37 in healthcare by the World Health Organization.

Digestive issues are on the rise, affecting 60-70 million people in the US.

Mental health issues like anxiety and depression are increasingly common. These issues are directly related to the health of your digestive system.

Did you know…

Your digestive system is connected to your brain via the vagus nerve. And your happy hormone, serotonin, resides in the gut. These physiological connections between your gut and your brain are the reason why so many issues in mental health are related to the health of your digestive system.

In the US, 69-84% of women reported feeling unhappy with their bodies regardless of their size. Struggles with body image contribute to feelings of depression, low self-esteem, and obsessing over body size, chronic dieting, and the development of eating disorders.

THE GOOD NEWS is that all of these issues are preventable with good nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.

Issues like:

  • 01

    Digestive Issues such as heartburn, pain, bloating, constipation, IBS, SIBO

  • 02

    Mental health issues such as moodiness, anxiety, depression

  • 03

    Body image issues, undereating, overeating, disordered patterns of eating, & eating disorders

Who are we?
Culinary Therapy is…

A unique culinary nutrition consultation center offering private functional nutrition services, health coaching and health-supportive cooking instruction.

We are dedicated to two core beliefs:

  • Bio individuality, or the understanding that each of our clients are unique. Through a highly individualized functional approach to your health, we are able to get to the root cause of health problems and disease.
  • Gentle nutrition is our unique inclusive approach to sustaining good food habits.

How I can help….

I help women who are struggling with a health issue, frustrating symptoms, or an unhealthy relationship with food make sustainable diet and lifestyle changes so that they feel truly empowered in their health and their lives.

I specialize in mental health nutrition and digestive challenges with a focus on eating behavior, chronic dieting, disordered patterns of eating, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and digestive issues like SIBO and IBS.

You don’t have to do this alone

For a limited time, I am currently accepting private clients into my practice.

Your first step is to schedule a clarity call with me. This is a complimentary 20 minute phone call to discuss your nutrition, health and wellness goals, and to ensure we are a good fit

Private, functional nutrition services

After our clarity call, your next step is to complete a Premier Nutrition Assessment, which we will discuss over a 60 minute Initial Nutrition Consultation. We will discuss your health history, goals, diet and lifestyle. You will have the time and space to share your story and you will leave feeling heard.

Private nutrition programs typically range in length from 4 to 8 months. During this time, you will receive a customized plan and implementation strategies to support new healthy habits. You will receive customized protocols, your own recipe book (which we will create together), and access to a wide range of functional nutrition testing.

Here are some of the benefits you can expect from working with me:

  • 01

    Improve your health and understand what truly works best for your unique body

  • 02

    Feel comfortable and confident in your body through a weight-inclusive approach to health

  • 03

    View food as nourishment at the cellular level and as a way to gather with others

  • 04

    End unhealthy eating patterns and cultivate a positive relationship with food

Your Next Steps:
