What some of our clients are saying
“My husband and I decided to go plant-based shortly watching Forks Over Knives in 2011. I was 3 months pregnant with our first child, so we wanted to make sure we had all the information we needed to make the right choices. We decided to meet with a nutritionist and couldn’t be happier that we found Denise! Denise’s passion about what she does, combined with her background in the food industry, enables her to provide solid, scientific, and practical advice. In the years since then, we’ve had a few follow up sessions with her to ensure we were still on track and that our kids were getting all the nutrients they need. Denise is always very responsive and happy to help. We highly recommend her!” Stephanie S, San Francisco, CA
“Denise and I worked together on diet and health issues that I had. She has a vast knowledge of nutrition. Denise is also a great listener, and very adaptable. She will listen closely to you situation and work within what you are able and willing to achieve. Denise does not push you towards a nutrition program that is unrealistic, or too much to manage.” Claire S, New York, NY
“I consulted with Denise after the birth of my second child. Denise helped me greatly in incorporating the nutritional needs I would have while breastfeeding as well as helping me get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional and eating well is her passion. I highly recommend her as a dietitian!” Rachel L-V, Longmont, CO
