What to expect in your first session with this dietitian?
We begin our first session getting to know each other. I'll complete a thorough assessment by asking additional details about your nutrition and lifestyle to lay the foundation for your personalized care. Together, we'll explore your individual goals in greater detail and develop practical, realistic strategies to start achieving them. I'll provide some initial nutrition education to empower you with first steps you can begin implementing right away. By the end of the session, you'll have a clear understanding of your goals, personalized strategies to achieve them, and motivation to embark on your health journey.
Approach to care
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 34 years of experience. At a young age, I saw my pregnant mom help my dad recover from cancer treatment while raising our family. As time went on, I always tried to help him eat the right foods as he also suffered from IBS. I found it fascinating how food, if properly chosen and prepared, could make his day, help him function and go to work, and be strong. This was when I realized how much I enjoyed helping people, and so I eventually pursued a career in dietetics. I went on to receive my Bachelor's degree in Dietetics from University of St. Joseph in West Hartford, CT and completed my clinical internship at the University of Connecticut Health Center Farmington, CT. Now, my specialties include a wide variety of areas, including weight management, gut health, diabetes, heart health, renal, autoimmune support, and women's health.
Hobbies
Not only do I love to cook healthy foods and try new recipes, I enjoy using all the social media cooking ideas and adjusting them to make more tasty and realistic. I enjoy long walks with my two dogs and swimming laps all year round for more vigorous activity. One of my obsessions is decorating and modifying the rooms in my house. Lastly, I relax with a good book or watching Netflix with my family and doggos.
More About This Dietitian
I have been fortunate to have advised clients on weight control, cardiovascular disease and hyperlipidemia, diabetes, disordered eating, kidney failure, connective tissue disease, food allergies, gastrointestinal conditions, and general healthy eating through menu planning, grocery shopping, cooking skills, evaluation of supplementation, medication/nutrition interactions and restaurant dining. I am known for my individualized, realistic approach with each person and believe this is what makes my clients successful.

I'm working on cholesterol reduction without medication, weight loss, and mental health. I've maintained weight loss, have seen a reduction in cholesterol and my mental health has stabilized due to diet and exercise recommendations.

As a teacher I work long hours and don't often have time to think about or prioritize my meals each week. I was finding I was often sluggish headed into the classroom and my lectures ended up being less engaging. Susan Sheehy transformed me. Her nutritional advice helped me prepare for my busy day and also get deeper insight into why I was holding onto so much weight. Turns out I was not eating enough! I lost 33 lbs and I have so much more energy. It has made classrooms livelier and I feel way better during the day. Highly recommend!!

Patty C.

After a sports injury, I piled on 25lbs. Susan helped me lose it, teaching me to balance nutrition and exercise. She was also an amazing partner during what was an especially difficult time in my journey. She helped me eventually turn a setback into a comeback! I am extremely grateful for everything she did and for the partnership during that time.
