"I just want to thank you for everything that you've done for me. I know that I wouldn't have been able to make such sweeping changes in my life without such positive and supportive guidance. I feel like I'm finally back on track since I graduated from school, and I'm centered and balanced enough to pursue whatever I want to do. And I still can't believe I lost 15 pounds! I would definitely like to continue to come back to you and check in once in a while."

"Erica is amazing! I have struggled with eating disorders for my entire life, and have tried everything, but had no long term life changes till I started going to see Erica. She is caring, understanding, and has such a great knowledge of nutrition. She has helped me learn how to enjoy food again, while learning the health benefits of my new eating habits. I would highly recommend her to ANYONE. She goes above and beyond, and truly cares about her clients."

"I concur, Erica is amazing!!!! I was feeling really sick, unable to eat meat among other foods. Every since I have been going to her, I feel much better. I have learned about other foods that my body feels good eating, and I have learned to trust my body and what it needs and doesn't need. She is amazing and really listened to what you have to say. I would recommend her services 100%. I have had stomach issues my entire life and now I am feeling much better!!!! Thank You Erica!!!!!!"
