Kate Thomas provides nutrition counseling to patients of all ages using a “whole health” approach to help clients make maintainable changes for a healthy lifestyle. Kate believes that food should be enjoyed and nutrition is an integral part of our physical and emotional well-being.

Kate’s role is to help you, or your child, create a positive relationship with real, wholesome food - through education, meal planning and behavioral changes that fit your lifestyle. Combining a foundation in evidence-based, medical nutrition therapy with a holistic, individualized approach to her practice, Kate aims to help clients develop realistic, achievable goals to overcome their barriers to nutrition success. Whether you’re looking to develop a better relationship with food and body, help with a picky eater, or to better manage symptoms of a medical condition through diet – Kate can help. Medical nutrition therapy has proven to an effective, non-drug approach to managing a variety of medical conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, renal disease and gastrointestinal disorders.
