Professional Statement

For the love of food. I have always loved food. The flavors, textures, smells, and the giddy anticipation of a delicious meal prepared with love and enjoyed in the company of family and friends. As many young women do, I have struggled at times with my relationship with food and body image, at times lending it too much power, while at other times not considering it’s effect enough. Several years ago I sought and received the help I needed to overcome my disordered thinking around food and through this experience discovered the the refreshingly simple concept of eating WHOLE foods mindfully. At this point I was a freshman at Hunter College in NYC and made the decision to major in nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian. During this time I cultivated a yoga practice and established mind body strategies for more conscious living. In expanding my world view, I discovered the realm of integrative nutrition. I knew immediately that this would be my professional home. I also knew that in order to practice nutrition in the way I most wanted, I would need to further my education. This was where I decide to incorporate my love of two worlds – fitness and nutrition. I attained my Master of Science degree from Columbia University in Applied Physiology and Nutrition, or Sports Nutrition, and developed my integrative nutrition practice through internship opportunities and independent research. My sports nutrition practice has grown over the years to include recreational, collegiate, and semi-professional, athletes. I am also a real person living in New York City and raising two beautiful girls with my husband, so I get it. I know life is crazy messy and I aim to help you simplify and prioritize. For the past several years I have worked as a faculty provider for the Center for Health and Healing in NYC. We housed one of the largest medical fitness programs in the Northeast and some of the most brilliant integrative practitioners around. I am proud to have called the Center my home. As I now embark on this new journey, I take the principles and philosophies I have acquired and will use them in helping you to create a better, more vibrant and integrated life. I am also hoping to have some fun with you along the way.

Phenominal! My first time at a nutritionist (dealing with IBS related symptoms) and she was over accomodating in every way. She has a strong background in a number nutrition-related fields / specialities which was one of the reasons I wanted to see her. She is extremely open, honest and thorough and surprisingly enough, let me do most of the talking (very refreshing for a change). The initial consultation takes an hour where she asked me about my reason for scheduling the appointment, what my goals are, my normal daily meals, etc. She takes maticulous notes and only interrupts if additional clarity is needed. I can't say this strongly enough - she isn't there to overprescribe supplements or reccomend fad-diets; instead she uses tools and strategies from her own experiences to guide a constructive plan intended to meet your goals! I was skeptical at first but Beth was AMAZING. I can't reccomend her enough. I'll be sure to update my rating as future visits occur.

Beth was very thorough with her intake and really listened to me. She gave me a plan that is manageable and I see great results. I feel better and do not feel deprived, I also feel empowered. Beth is relateable and knows her stuff!
