Eating Disorder Management:
Eating disorders are complex and require the help from not only a nutritionist, but also a therapist and physician as well. Making changes can be overwhelming. My aim would be to start slowly, one step at a time, in a way that would feel comfortable and safe for you. We will work together on rebuilding your relationship with food. I don’t believe in dieting but will help you to achieve a healthy, balanced lifestyle. 



Sports Performance Nutrition:
Wendy was the Team Nutritionist for the NY Jets from 2006-2013, where she worked closely with the NFL players to improve endurance, speed, and explosiveness. She has consulted for the NY Islanders, Hofstra University Athletics, and is currently the Sports Nutritionist for Pro Hoops where she works with basketball players looking to enter the NBA draft.

Individual Athlete:
Are you looking to be a better athlete - to be faster, stronger, or to have more energy? Do you want to get to the "next level" with your sports performance? Specific nutrition techniques, such as knowing exactly what to eat before, during, and after your workout, can enhance performance and give you an "edge" that separates you from your competitors. Fueling yourself properly, including specific meal timing, is essential for increasing energy levels and stamina, and for reaching peak game-day performance.

Combine and Special Event Preparation:
Wendy helps athletes as they prepare for the combine, draft, and other competitive events. During a nutrition session, we will look at your diet and customize a nutrition program that complements your training schedule. Wendy will work with you during the preparation phase to ensure you reach your weight and body composition goals, while simultaneously focusing on enhancing performance.



Sports Team Dietitian
Wendy has been a nutrition consultant for the New York Jets since 2006. She has consulted for the NY Islanders, and currently consults for Pro Hoops, a basketball training facility that attracts NBA draft prospects.

Weight Management:
Are you frustrated with your progress?
Sometimes it can feel like you’ve tried everything, or other times, it can feel so overwhelming that you are not even sure how to begin. During one-on-one sessions, we will work on food choices, emotional eating, binging, overall health, and aim to dissolve perfectionistic eating. Often the weight loss clients I see “know” the right things to eat, but struggle with making the right choices. We will explore your motivation and discuss strategies for success.



General Nutrition Counseling
Do you wish you had more energy? Do you find that you are stuck in the same daily patterns? Nutrition can effect your mood, energy level, cognitive function, and concentration. During a session, I will conduct a thorough nutrition assessment and we will work together to customize a realistic nutrition program that works for your lifestyle. Additional areas of specialty include: Celiac Disease, GI Disorders, Allergies, Heart Disease, Hypertension, Diabetes, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression)
