I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 20 years of counseling experience. I have a Master’s Degree in Nutrition Education, and I’m a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD). I've always been fascinated by the importance of food and it's role in different cultures, it's healing properties and its effect on mood, energy, and wellbeing. Personally, I've run 13 half-marathons and one half-marathon. I specialize in working with clients who struggle with disordered eating and weight management and those looking to improve exercise performance and improve their overall health and wellness.

My coaching style

I believe eating is about more than just food. It is the ultimate form of self-care, a way to connect with others, to our cultures and traditions. I therefore work with my clients to foster a flexible, realistic and balanced approach to nutrition, one rooted in intuitive eating for long-term success with health goals. I help clients make realistic and achievable changes that ultimately fuel a healthier life and sense of wellbeing.

Mariam Basma
Mariam was perfect, she spoke my language and was very familiar with the Mediterranean diet and way of eating. One of the most remarkable aspects of working with Mariam was her ability to address the psychological and emotional aspects of weight loss. She helped me identify triggers and emotional eating patterns, teaching me healthier coping mechanisms to overcome them. Through open and honest conversations, she guided me towards developing a positive self-image and cultivating a mindset that supported my long-term well-being.

I LOVE Mariam! She is so encouraging. I love how she is able to reframe what I think is a negative to a positive. She is filled with grace. I never feel ashamed or "disciplined" but loved and challenged. Her advice/expertise is excellent and practical. I definitely feel like I am making strides on my journey.
