Our process and pledge

Step 1

Congratulations! You’ve made your first step toward better health and wellness! After you’ve made an appointment, I email you an intake form that asks simple questions about your goals, usual eating patterns, and health history.

Step 2

Everything we do together is tailored around your goals and needs. I coach you through the process of changing what and how you eat, but also guide you through the whys of each change. You never make a change you’re not comfortable with. We work together without guilt, judgment, or shame about food choices or body image.

 

Step 3

We promise to guide you through nutrition changes with respect, non-judgement, and support. We honor your health history, goals, needs, lifestyle, and mental health. We never sell you supplements, oils, pills, or shakes. We keep our business free of conflict-of-interest to make sure your interests come first.

    "Although I exercise regularly, I struggled to "get my body back" after delivering my fourth baby.  After 3 years of trying to do it on my own, I decided it was time for professional help.  I had been following Marisa's Instagram feed for a while and was impressed by the reasonable, scientifically proven nutritional information she posted.  I also appreciated that she is a certified personal trainer so I felt confident that her dietary advice would take into account my level of activity and physical fitness.  Our consultation together was immensely helpful.  She explained how to augment my eating/exercising regimen in order to reach my goals and walked me through what a realistic caloric intake should be for my personal circumstances.  After consulting with her, I feel confident that I now have the information I need to push through my previous obstacles and start seeing some results!"

  • I found Marisa Michael's nutrition workshop for dancers absolutely wonderful. She had the dancers write down a nutrition question beforehand and for her to review before the class. She was very engaged with the students and was extremely well prepared and thorough. There was involvement with the dancers from the get go so they felt it was for and about them. Ms. Michael talked about the topic of eating disorders with grace and authenticity. A difficult subject to bring up in the dance world but she handled it with great skill.
    I would recommend Marisa to all athletes and dancers as a go to person that really understands the nutritional needs of such active young people.

    I previously worked with a dietician on intuitive eating and gentle nutrition but found myself needing more specific support for proper hydration and nutrition during endurance training. Marisa was thorough and provided specific recommendations in the first session that I was able to test out right away. My follow-up appointments were focused on dialing in my hydration and nutrition even more, based on how my training was going with her initial recommendations. Marisa exceeded my expectations. She was professional but also so enjoyable to talk with and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for nutrition support!

    "You have helped me so much. I had been to a nutritionist in the past and he possibly had the same credentials but he just wasn't a good fit for me. I appreciate you have taken the time to listen to my lifestyle and needs and in less than 3 months made it so I no longer take my BP (blood pressure) meds." ~Elizabeth M.
  • I'm a local runner and wanted to get advice for diet and training purposes. Did an online search for local nutritionists and found Marisa. Scheduled an appointment met up and was very happy with her presentation and care she provided. I'm currently doing much better health wise and made improvements on my recent metobolic panel blood work results during my annual physical exam. I'm also a stronger runner as a result of advice and feedback provided.
  • I met with Marisa for diet and nutritional advice that would allow me to be active and get results while working 60+ hours per work week. Previously, I tried diets such as Keto and Advocare plans with no success. Marisa gave me great information on how energy and carbs work, appropriate food choices, and a daily plan for calories and macros. Since implementing, I've had a lot of energy to have great workouts, lost 6 lbs, without the need for supplementation. I fully recommend working with Marisa for nutritional advice.
