Holistic Nutrition

Using nutritional education as a primary tool, holistic nutrition professionals emphasize the building of health by approaching each person as a unique individual. This requires fully engaging the individual in their health recovery process and honoring their innate wisdom by working in an empowering and cooperative manner to chart a course to optimal health. - NANP.

Registered Holistic Nutritionist

You deserve to eat well with meal plans that work for you! 


Are you always tired?

Looking to lose weight?

Reduce your sugar cravings?

When my daughter was diagnosed as being and gluten and lactose intolerant by a naturopathic doctor, she had gone through every medical test possible, only to realize that nutrition was the answer. So, I decided to take a new approach to health and trained as a Holistic Nutritionist, with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, where I graduated in 2016. I firmly believe that nutrition plays a key role in your everyday wellness and health, therefore a good nutrition plan can become a way of life. The core of my practice is to tailor such a plan according to your personal needs, daily and social demands and other factors that are unique to you. I will provide you with support and a step by step approach that will allow you to achieve your personal goals. 


Originally from Switzerland, I studied at the University of Brighton (U.K.) where I received my Nursing Diploma. I then worked in a variety of wards, such as surgical, medical, gynecological, and palliative care. We later moved to Brazil, where I completed my Bachelor of Science and Social Studies through the Open University (U.K.). During our time in Brazil, I enjoyed going to the various markets and discovering the flavours and foods of Brazil. We moved to Ottawa in 2017 which is when I opened my practice. As well as doing consultations, I have also done various workshops throughout Ottawa and I find that this is a great opportunity to provide more informal information.  

I will create personalized, simple to follow nutritional support to improve your health and that of your family.
