Message to clients

Hello! I'm Lesley Varone, and I'm happy you are here. I believe the role of food extends beyond mere sustenance, influencing us physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Struggling with food can add stress and amplify anxiety in these areas. By collaborating with a dietitian, you can receive valuable support in enhancing your relationship with food, ultimately contributing to improvements in all aspects of your life. I approach nutrition counseling with curiosity and compassion with the goal of providing evidence-based support and guidance to improve your overall well-being.
