A WELCOME MESSAGE FROM BARB ANDRESEN

I am pleased to welcome you to my website. With over 20-many years of experience in nutrition, my aim is to excite, inspire and encourage healthy relationships with body and food combined with good nutrition. I specialize in medical nutrition treatment for patients with eating disorders or unhealthy eating practices, my many services include individualized nutrition counseling for weight loss, heart disease, sports nutrition and women's health issues. I also provide healthy eating coaching from grocery store tours to cooking basics and recipe ideas. Presentations and nutrition courses are available for groups, schools and classrooms from preschool to college courses. Available are nutrition education materials and mentoring for other nutrition professionals.

I am happy to tell you that many insurance companies offer benefits for nutrition counseling often without even a copay.
