What to expect in your first session with this dietitian?
The first session is all about establishing a clear picture of your current lifestyle habits including nutrition, movement patterns, sleep, stress and medical history. From there, we will spend some time talking about what you want to be different when it comes to your health and what that road map might look like. By the end of the first session you will be able to prioritize what goals you want to work on first and set some action items to experiment with over the coming weeks. My role is to walk along side you and support you each step of the way in achieving these goals. I hope you walk away from the first session feeling like you have a clear picture of optimal health for you and where to begin.
Approach to care
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 8 years of counseling experience. I have my Masters Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from California State University Northridge, and hold additional certifications as a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist (CDCES) and American Council on Exercise Personal Trainer. I specialize in working with clients who struggle with obesity and chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and metabolic syndrome. I also love working with recreational athletes to discover how quality nutrition can directly improve performance. Personally, I competed on the Cal Poly Collegiate Triathlon Team in a variety of distrances from triathalons, half ironamn's and marathons. My daughter also has multiple life-threatening allergies to dairy, eggs, peanuts and treenuts. As a mother (and dietitian), I can empathize with the complexities of living with dietary restrictions, and how this impacts all areas of life.
Hobbies
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family- including my two young daughters. Outside of family time, you can catch me exploring a new hiking trail, experimenting in the kitchen, or working out with friends (I love all group exercise classes). I also enjoy the simplicity of sitting of sitting my back yard with an iced coffee, reading a book and soaking up the California sunshine.
More About This Dietitian
I take a whole person approach to counseling because there are so many factors that can influence a person's nutrition patterns beyond just what they eat. I strive to help people get back to basics- by rediscovering a healthy relationship with food, and cooking whole foods that help heal the body from the inside out. I believe that finding optimal health is truly the foundation of a happy life! I work alongside clients to dig deep into discovering motivators for long term health and how this aligns with personal values to creating lasting behavior change.

"This Dietitian helped me get my life back”
Gia M.

Without my fabulous coach, I would not have acquired valuable information that shaped my new eating habits. I know these habits can be maintained since I was provided so many easy-to-use tools. I appreciated the compassion and understanding that my coach showed during life's ups and downs. Energy is definitely up and more importantly, awareness and focus was raised during our time together.

Marlina

Colette was wonderful to work with. She's very knowledgeable, looked into questions I had and did some research to provide me with understanding about diabetes, protein, making sure I eat enough by using macros tracking. She has helped me be less afraid of carbs and gave me ideas of options to get my protein in. With increasing my protein intake, it has helped crave less sugar and bread carbs and keep my blood sugar more stable, and if it does spike, it comes down quicker. Weight has come down a couple pounds to maintaining, and A1C has come down some more, both of which were part of my goals.

Sheryl

Really helpful. I was looking to learn basic information about eating better and sport nutrition. Colette helped me with both of those goals
