Nutrition Counseling Services
If you’re ready to feel HEALTHY and HAPPY, start eating normally and settle into a weight that’s natural and comfortable for your individual body, all while working with an understanding, supportive, and knowledgable coach, you’re in the right place.
Our Philosophy when it comes to Nutrition
We live in a society that too often sends all the wrong messages, and it can lead to constant body judgment, yo-yo dieting, food restriction, binging and emotional eating.
You may wonder how you will ever achieve a normal relationship with food. The answers to your good health include:
- Challenging your thoughts and assumptions about the definition of “normal eating.”
- Recognizing that food and weight issues aren’t always about the food.
Learning strategies for managing stress eating.
- Approaching your body from a place of compassion with gentle nutrition and movement.
At Erica Leon Nutrition, we specialize in helping people learn to eat intuitively, being fully present and mindful of their choices. We want YOU to be the expert at meeting your own needs and discovering your own natural, internal signals of hunger and fullness.
We want YOU to be able to distinguish between your reasons for eating – the “why”, “when”, “what”, “how and “how much” – as the first step in learning to eat mindfully.
Therefore, we empower all our clients to take the necessary steps to achieve optimal nutritional health and wellness.
At Erica Leon Nutrition, we offer both individual and group sessions in our White Plains, New York office.
Virtual sessions using HIPPA-compliant Telehealth (Skype, phone and email) are also available.
