About
Kristina
Originally from the North Eastern US, I came to Florida for college. I first studied to be an animal nutritionist, with a bachelors in animal science. I changed to we humans in my doctoral/postdoc work which focused on behavioral lifestyle research in nutrition intervention as well as teaching. I left Academia to work clinically as a generalist in primary care. While I have helped patients chronic disease, GI concerns, PCOS, autoimmune disease, weight loss/gain, among others, in becoming board certified in functional nutrition I am focusing on gastrointestinal and hormonal health, including insulin resistance.
Approach to care
I have a passion for getting to the root of the matter in my patients health journey, meeting them where they are at and helping them get to where to want to be. I do not believe nutrition and health are "one-size-fits all" as we are all diverse individuals and far more than the sum of our parts. As an integrative practitioner I consider all aspects of my patients lives when helping them make dietary shifts to improve their health. I can work with individuals from vegan to meat eater as well as specific dietary restrictions.

What to expect in your first session with Kristina?

In our first session we will go over your general, nutritional and personal health history from birth to the current day. I this is the session to get all the information I will need to hep you with your goals. We will review the what (what is your primary concern) as well as the why (why is this important to you) and how (what can and will you do to make a difference) of making changes to your diet and related factors. You will be the driver of setting goals making changes that help improve your health in a realistic and sustainable way. This session will set us up to work together knowing the "big picture" and setting a plan for future sessions and timelines.
