I KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE CONFUSED AND LOST BY THE OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF NUTRITION INFORMATION AVAILABLE
Lydia is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND). Along with having her MS in Nutrition Education from Columbia University, Lydia has completed MONASH University’s training course The Low FODMAP Diet for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
Lydia specializes in gastrointestinal (GI) conditions such as IBS, functional constipation and diarrhea, bloating, Celiac Disease, GERD, and other functional and structural GI disorders. Lydia helps her clients with eating disorders manage their GI symptoms while engaging and maintaining their recovery.
Lydia’s interest in nutrition began when she was modeling professionally as a teenager. She saw first hand how restricting intake and over-exercising could wreak havoc on the digestive system, mood, and energy levels. She vowed to take her experiences and help others. Today she helps individuals with eating disorders, disordered eating, chronic dieting and body image issues find true peace in their bodies by healing body, mind, gut and soul.
I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to make sure we're a good match to work together. This phone call gives us the chance to see if my counseling services align with your goals and what you hope to get out of nutrition counseling. I’ll be straightforward with you if I don’t think we’ll be a good match and offer referrals for mental health providers that may be a better fit for you.
If we both agree we are a good fit to work together, we will schedule a 60-minute initial consultation. This session starts with a thorough assessment of past medical history, symptoms, and diet history. We will also go over any health concerns or goals you might have.
I will recommend follow up sessions based off what your particular needs are. There is no requirement to book a follow-up but I do recommend at least one 2 weeks after the initial consultation.
Between appointments, email support is also offered for any small concerns.
"My experience working with Lydia was incredibly refreshing amidst the information overload in the wellness space these days. Working with her is like speaking with an exceptionally informed and approachable friend. In our few sessions together, she helped me unravel some unproductive thoughts I have held about nutrition, and also helped me develop some attainable and healthy daily habits. All of this was without judgement and without recommending any extreme, expensive, or impractical suggestions. Lydia has a great ability to break things down simply, making nutrition and overall wellness accessible and practical no matter what your circumstances are."

“I’ve had a long history of disordered eating having come up in private school LA culture, despite having good intentions throughout simply to have ultimate health and wellness, and you're the first educator to make me feel at ease about being aware of what I'm eating and being interested in nutrition, but to profoundly relax around it. When you said you realized that all food is really the same, made up of the same components, that was a huge perspective shift for me. Anyways, thank you for your perspective.”

"Lydia helped me to discover an approach to nutrition that wasn’t restrictive and how eating more foods actually improved my symptoms and issues. She is informed, stays curious about her industry, and explains the science behind her recommendations in a way that her clients can understand. After each session, I have walked away feeling empowered with the knowledge she has given me."
