Private Nutrition Counseling

Bonnie is a certified diabetes educator and and adult weight management specialist. She has been working with clients for over a decade to build a healthy relationship with food, lose weight, and manage their diabetes.

Are you feeling confused about how to navigate eating with Bariatric Surgery?

Trying to lose weight and need guidance and support?

This is where I come in!

Hi there! I’m Bonnie. I have been working in bariatrics and weight management for many years supporting patients through the highs and lows of bariatric surgery and weight loss. I have extensive experience in helping people through their journey before and after bariatric surgery and on their path to better health. Unfortunately, many bariatric programs cannot provide the support that people need to be successful and truly thrive. I am here to help guide you in having the best experience possible. Whether you are working in preparation for surgery, or looking for guidance afterward, I can give you the support and expertise you need to get you on the right track!

Personalized Bariatric Nutrition Counseling Services

  • Before Surgery
  • Immediately after surgery
  • Long-term support

Personalized Non-Bariatric Nutrition Counseling

Not a bariatric surgery patient? I also specialize in the following…

  • General Weight Loss
  • Diabetes Management
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • General Nutrition Therapy
  • Gut Health

Fostering a healthy and sustainable relationship with food is the cornerstone of long-term success. I respect that everyone comes from a different place in life with different past experiences that make us who we are. We will work together to decide what health means to you and how to reach your goals. My counseling is rooted in an intuitive eating style with a focus in gut health medicine. I believe that it is important to not only reach your health goals, but learn how to develop a healthy relationship with food. After all, food is something we experience every day for our entire lives. I want you to feel at peace with it instead of at war.

Nutrition complications after surgery can include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Pain/discomfort
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Bloating and excess gas
  • Reactive hypoglycemia
  • Dumping syndrome
  • Fatigue
  • Weight regain
  • Malnutrition
  • Vitamin Deficiencies

If any of these symptoms sound familiar, you are not alone! The good news is that they are completely manageable with proper nutrition therapy.

I currently do not accept insurance for my services, but will hopefully be accepting limited insurance plans by fall 2022. If your insurance is not covered, but your doctor refers to me with an appropriate medical diagnosis clearly documented, I am able to provide you with a superbill that your insurance may or may not reimburse. This is not guaranteed and I will not contact your insurance company to follow up with provided superbills.

Credit and HSA/FSA currently accepted.


Bonnie was so supportive. I was really anxious, but she immediately put me at ease. It made the whole process of surgery so much smoother. I’m so grateful she was there for me.”

I had really fallen off the wagon. Working with Bonnie helped me focus back on what was important. I’m already down 10 pounds!

I needed someone to keep me accountable and check in with me regularly. I always looked forward to seeing Bonnie and left feeling positive.”
