"Joan actually listened to me, asked questions,  and was able to assess things about how I was  using food that I hadn't even realized myself.  Her approach helped me make lifestyle changes  and better decisions about food.  Now, slowly but  surely, I am two sizes smaller and have more  energy.  I feel great!" Michele

 "No matter what my issues were or how  confused I was, Joan brought clarity and  calmness to the table that helped motivate and  reassure me.  She is such a good listener and  her sense of humor was always a bright spot in  my day."  Patti

 "Joan was understanding and compassionate  while challenging me to make the changes  necessary to achieve my goals.  Together we  found what worked for me.  With Joan's help,  both my physical and mental health have  improved." Stephanie
