My mission is to improve your quality of life by empowering you to use food and nutrition to manage your digestive health.

Every day we make decisions about what to eat. Many factors influence our food choices, including family, culture, time, money, knowledge and health. Choosing what to eat is extra challenging for people with gastrointestinal troubles. I specialize in providing personalized nutrition counseling to people with the following conditions:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Microscopic colitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Food intolerances and sensitivities
  • Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Bloating and abdominal distension
  • Diarrhea and constipation

“Thank you so much for all of your help and your creative approaches to my diet over the years. I really appreciate all that you taught me about nutrition and how much you helped me in figuring out a diet that works for me. It really has made all the difference in managing my health and keeping me feeling well on a daily basis.”

Laurel S.

“Colleen is an expert on how to eat with Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. Since we began working together in 2011, I’ve seen significant improvements in our patients’ quality of life. She’s an outstanding teacher and appreciates the challenges associated with eating with IBD.”

Ellen Scherl, M.D.

“As a patient who has struggled with ulcerative colitis for over 20 years, I’ve never been more educated than I am today about the impact diet has on everyday life. Colleen was instrumental in developing a plan (based on the MRT) that eased my symptoms of a flare-up that likely would have resulted in a hospitalization if it weren’t for her.”

        My Food Philosophy

        • Food isn’t the problem, it’s the solution. 
        • Enjoying what you eat is of the utmost importance. 
        • Avoiding unnecessary food restrictions is essential for a well-balanced diet and a healthy relationship with food. 
        • There is no one-size-fits-all diet.
        • To fix your gut, you must get to the root of the problem. 
        • All the medications and supplements in the world won’t take the place of a healthy, well-balanced diet. 

        Frequently Asked Questions

        How do I get started?
        How do I know which package is right for me?

        I’ll help you decide! Email me to schedule your free 15-minute phone consultation.

        Do you accept insurance?

        No, I don’t accept insurance. However, I can give you a receipt to submit to insurance for reimbursement. Contact your insurance company to find out if they reimburse for out-of-network medical nutrition therapy.

        What is your cancellation policy?

        If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, notify me at least 48 hours in advance of your appointment or one session will be deducted from your nutrition package.

        What are the advantages of virtual counseling?

        There are LOTS of benefits to counseling remotely. Here are a few of the big ones: 1) Traveling to an appointment can be scary for someone with gastrointestinal issues, but virtual counseling allows you to work with me from the privacy of your home (and near a bathroom) 2) I can connect with you even if you don’t live in or near NYC. 3) Scheduling is a cinch since you don’t have to worry about commuting time. 4) Better quality of life for you.
