Amanda A.

I can't recommend Julene more highly. I was suffering from a range of stomach issues, nausea, loss of appetite, and other health issues and my doctors could not help. I was seeing GI and other specialists and was run through a battery of tests (MRIs, endoscopies, etc.), with no clear diagnosis.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the approach you use when you work with clients?


I always take a personalized approach to each client I work with. I also use three guiding parameters to influence my recommendations-- science-backed data, clinical experience, and ancestral eating. With scientific data, I give heavy weight to controlled studies where there is a clear causal influence on the factor being studied. I also consider observational studies, but am skeptically curious with the conclusions they present. I've worked with clients for over a decade. I've seen some approaches work well, and other approaches work even better. So I use my experience as well as the experience of other trusted practitioners to guide my recommendations. One of the best long-term nutritional studies is the constant evolution of the human species. We have extensive foundational data as to what diets humans have consumed and thrived with over the millenia. "Eat like your ancestors" is not just a catchphrase but is a guiding principle for optimal health.




What is YOUR diet?


I'm an omnivore. I eat plants and animals. I prioritize healthy fats and proteins and limit carbohydrates to balance blood sugar and optimize my metabolic health. I'm disciplined but not rigid with my meals, and I've developed creative ways to enjoy occasional treats that are healthy and satisfying.




Do you accept insurance?


As a holistic nutritionist, I do not accept insurance. Some HSA/FSA programs may accept my services, but you would need to investigate the requirements and details.




Will I have to stop eating my favorite foods if I work with you?


When I work with you, you are in control of your diet. For many foods, there may be tradeoffs that I will explain. Together we can decide if a food is a reasonable option for you and how often. Some clients tell me from the beginning, "I'm not getting rid of X" and I always respect those choices.




Can I set up just one meeting with you?


I have a "Free Discovery Call" where we can discuss your primary concerns and I can explain how we can work together. I'll give you some details on how I would approach your situation, and I won't pressure you into signing up for anything. I generally only work with clients on a program basis that spans weeks or months. I do this because I've found it to be the most effective way to implement change. Healthy nutrition requires knowledge and new habits. I've found the best way to achieve that is to work progressively together, adding on new information and goals each time we meet. To try to stuff loads of information into one session is overwhelming and totally ineffective. Let's work together, one step at a time, to create lifelong changes and habits that will produce the results you're looking for. I promise you that if you put in the work, you'll see amazing results.




My needs don't fit any of your listed programs.  Are there other programs?


I'm a holistic nutritionist trained to help with many different nutritional challenges. Over the last ten years I've work with a wide variety of client situations. If you're unsure about how your needs can be addressed, please set up a discovery call so that I can explain how I'll structure a personalized program for you.
