Could one consultation change your life?
As a mother of two with a powerful sweet tooth, I know how difficult it can be to manage a healthy diet and lifestyle. But I can help you make it easy and fun so that you can start to really enjoy life – which is really the point, right?
How did you end up on this site? Health concerns? Would you like help achieving the goals you've set for yourself? Let's get to know each other – after all, there is a reason you are here and I will start by congratulating you! This is the first step towards optimal wellness.
You may have concerns about weight, diabetes, stress, allergies, cravings, or even relationships or career. You may be tired of constantly "running on empty", have a loss of self-confidence or perhaps you're simply confused about proper nutrition. Or maybe you've tried every diet out there without getting the desired outcome.
There's more to life than depriving yourself of foods you love.
As a Health Counselor, I have studied all the major dietary theories and will help you discover what approach works best for you at this point in your life. While most dietitians dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restrictions and lists of good and bad foods, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline. I take a holistic approach to nutrition, and believe that what we eat is really secondary to other things in life – career, spirituality, personal relationships, passions, hobbies, and exercise – that feed our mind, body, soul. Together, we'll assess what areas in your life are out of balance so that you can stop treating food as a primary source of nurture.
No single diet works for everyone.
There is no single diet that works for everyone, but with a set of simple guidelines, you'll be able to make some positive and potentially life-changing steps toward a healthier lifestyle. If you're now thinking: “Here we go again – another diet guru, giving me restricted rules about good and bad foods”, not to worry. I don´t preach “good” and “bad” – and you will not find yourself in “food hell” when working with me. Food, like with everything else in life, is about bio-individuality – finding out what works for you!
I will guide you to find the food and positive lifestyle choices that best support you. I will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.
During the course of your personalized program you will set and accomplish goals, explore new foods, understand and reduce cravings, increase energy, feel better in your body and increase the overall happiness in your life.
Get your nutrition questions answered! I will look over your current eating habits, suggest areas for improvement, answer questions and develop strategies.

“I have suffered from stomach issues ever since I was a teen. I always felt bloated, had food sensitivity, and experienced either constipation or diarrhea. My symptoms made me less outgoing and were affecting my social life. A friend talked me into meeting with Marianne and after a few sessions, I really started to understand my symptoms and the reasons why I was feeling miserable. A few changes have meant a tremendous improvement to my health in so many ways. I’m so grateful to be able to continue my new healthy lifestyle by making better choices everyday. Thank you!”
– Leslie Thompson
“I have been using the services of Marianne Honoré for several months and she has helped me tremendously in my lifelong struggle with weight and, more recently, pre-diabetes. She has taught me to replace my cravings/desires for fatty, unhealthy food with healthy good-tasting alternatives. My two favorite things were rice and chocolate milk. Marianne has provided me with healthy alternatives that I never would have thought of such as a protein shake in place of the chocolate milk and cauliflower in place of the rice.
Marianne has not only been a mentor but a friend as well. She is always willing to listen and take time for me when I am feeling down and out or frustrated. She has been available for me daily when I have questions or problems, always offering me healthy solutions. I always look forward to speaking with Marianne because she is extremely intelligent and very good at what she does. She never puts pressure on me by telling me what I should or shouldn’t do, but rather gives me a few different ideas to help me make good choices on my own.
Thanks to Marianne I have lost 20 lbs. without feeling like I am on a diet. I have created a new path for myself and am feeling confident and cooking more than I ever have in the past. I would highly recommend her to anyone who would like to improve their health.”
“I work long hours in construction and have never been good at eating regular meals or even making sure I was drinking enough fluids. When my last physical showed my blood sugar was in the diabetic zone, my wife insisted that I would go for at least a chat with Marianne about my eating habits.
I’ve always been very skeptical when it comes to anything “alternative”. But soon I surrendered and started listening, because a few tips from Marianne have turned my views on what food can mean for your overall wellbeing. I now bring green smoothies to work instead of Red Bull, and I’ve started educating my crew on what to eat and drink. I am very pleased about that first chat with Marianne.”
– John “Bull”
“Working with Marianne to change my diet and exercise habits has turned my weight and diabetes around. I have so much more energy and I feel great.”
– Moe C.
"I have been eating excessive sweets and very large meal portions most of my adult life. For years I thought I could change my eating habits whenever I wanted, but I continued to come up with excuses for not succeeding. I’m 5’4 and when my weight topped at 215 lbs. and I was having trouble sleeping, joint pain, allergies and just feeling miserable, I decided to get help. A friend of mine told me about Marianne’s services and I started to work with Marianne over the phone.
Marianne told me that changing my habits wouldn’t necessarily be easy but it would be worth it! I was the “worth it” part that did it because my experience had taught me that there are no easy diets. You have to be committed to making changes and Marianne was right – it’s worth it.
My portions were cut down and I learned that I don’t need to treat myself with daily sugary desserts – treats can be healthy and tasty. I now enjoy a more balanced diet with an increased intake of fruits and vegetables. I lost 40 lbs. so far and all my allergies are gone. I started exercising and my joints are feeling stronger and less painful. The best thing is that I believe in “me” again! So worth it!”
– Corinne M.
“After having major back surgery, I found myself in a state of chronic pain, overweight, weakened immune system and depression. At the first few sessions with Marianne, she just listened and guided me to a few adjustments that ended up being life-changing to me. I still have much to learn, but I never thought I would feel this good again. I’m now considering leaving Corporate America and start a career as a Health Coach!”
– Peggy L.
“Marianne has taught me to focus on my overall health and not the scale. My blood sugar is down to normal and my weight keeps going down, even when I ”slip” and dig into my old eating habits. I appreciate the caring support I have received in between our sessions.”
– Mary T.
”Simple guidelines, portion control, an exercise plan and a list of healthy food choices from Marianne have made me wish that I would have reached out for assistance years ago. I feel so much better primarily thanks to her consistent support of working on my overall goals.”
– Tom C.
Do you accept insurance?
We don’t bill insurance but will work with you to make sure the program fits your budget. Remember, even just a few adjustments can have a huge impact on your health.
How long are the appointments?
The initial appointment is very comprehensive and takes approximately 1-1.5 hours. The follow-up appointments are usually 50-60 minutes. In the interest of our long-term clients we do our best to reduce the frequency and time of sessions.
How often are follow-up appointments?
The first follow-up is usually one week after the initial appointment and from there, based upon the individual and medical condition, appointments are normally every two weeks. Once the condition has stabilized and/or the client is on track, appointments can range from every two to four weeks.
What should I bring with me to the initial appointment?
· Health History Form – completely filled out
· Last blood work and list of medication and supplements (this information is optional and should only be shared with your permission)
· 7-day food log (write down everything you eat and drink)
What is your confidentiality policy?
All of your personal information and our conversations during sessions are completely confidential.
What are the office hours?
All consultations are by appointment only and can be flexible around your schedule. Just email or call to set up your initial appointment.
What makes you different from other health counselors and nutritionists/dietitians in the area?
While most dietitians dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restrictions and lists of good and bad foods, we work with our clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.
We take a holistic approach to nutrition, and believe that what we eat is really secondary to other things in life – career, spirituality, personal relationships, passions, hobbies, and exercise – that feed our mind, body, soul. Together, we'll assess what areas in your life are out of balance so that you can stop treating food as a primary source of nurture.
Together with our clients, we aim to create a healthy well-balanced lifestyle plan that can be followed everyday for the rest of your life.
As we may not be able to give you all the tools you need to optimize your health, we often refer our clients to other exceptional healthcare professionals.
Do you have Skype, telephone or email appointments?
Yes. We can customize your program so it works for you even when you have a busy schedule.
Do you work with all age groups?
We mainly works with adults but enjoy working with all age groups. Working with younger clients is an essential family affair and we require a parent to be involved in the session(s). Teens can be worked with privately and information will be shared with the parents, if the teen gives permission.
Can I contact you between appointments if I have a question?
Yes, if you have a quick question or need us to clear any confusion from a session we can be reached via email. For multiple questions or a more in-depth discussion we would set up a phone or email consultation.
Do you sell dietary supplements?
We don’t sell direct but we recommend high quality dietary supplements and other products such as natural foods or cosmetics, some found on our Shop page. We may recommend supplements, based on your current health condition, but they are not required.
Once we create a plan together, do I need to come back?
In most cases it is vital to have an ongoing relationship to reach your health-related goals. Occasionally we accommodate one-time consultations (1-1 ½ hours), but the outcome of these depends on the individual’s goals and needs.
Do you offer any discounts?
Yes. We offer a discount when you purchase a 3- or 6-month program and we also like to offer surprise discounts when a clients shows genuine focused commitment to making better and healthier choices.
