I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 8 years of counseling experience and over 20 years as an avid practitioner of yoga. The practice of yoga has truly been life-changing for me, and I integrate my learnings from the mat to my practice off the mat as much as possible - living in the present moment and having gratitude for my life and purpose on this planet. I have done many different things throughout my career, and all my experiences have led me to where I feel I can truly thrive and help others - the most rewarding experience of all! I specialize in working with clients living with chronic conditions including heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. I also love partnering with those with gut health concerns and those looking to improve their overall health and lifestyle.

I am so grateful for Lena! For two + years I was struggling with losing weight, I felt lost and there was no hope, because I do not have a thyroid! I finally hit a wall and decided to hire a dietitian and it was the best decision of my life! Getting introduced to Lena was such a blessing, she was kind, understanding, and sympathetic to my needs and goals I was looking to achieve! Because of Lena and her guidance I lost 30 pounds in the last year and I have never felt better! I feel like myself again and now have so much confidence and self awareness to move forward and keep the weight off and have the education I have on what I place in my body daily! Lena thank you for all that you have done for me!
