With your permission, we will explore your relationship with food, movement, and your body, as well as aspects like digestion, sleep, and hydration, to create a comprehensive plan for our work together. By the end of the session, we will establish long-term goals that will guide our future sessions and set you on the path towards sustainable change.

Once your appointment is confirmed, we will send you the new client paperwork through our secure platform, which you can complete before our session.

We can also conduct food or cooking exposures to help you expand your food choices.

Regular check-ins are an important part of maintaining momentum and achieving success.

You can schedule follow-up sessions directly through our secure video platform once you have completed their initial assessment.

Client Testimonials

"Ana is an amazing professional and human being. She is very professional, knowledgable and empathetic. Exactly what I needed when I first started working with her. From the first couple of weeks working together, I saw a significant improvement in my eating habits. Ana was always able to identify the reasons why I was struggling with achieving our goals and give me applicable and realistic advice. With her support, I am now in a great place! I highly recommend Ana, if you’re looking for a really empathetic nutrition professional search no further! I’ve worked with multiple ones in my life, and all of them lacked compassion and understanding of my emotional struggle that either came with or resulted in my struggles with food. Ana truly cares about her clients and their improvement! I am so grateful for her!"

"Ana Pruteanu is an exceptional nutritionist. I have been working with Ana for over 3 years and my comfort level with myself and my body has improved dramatically because Ana's guidance. I have worked with several other nutritionists and Ana stands out.
Her approach to food and nutrition is non-judgmental, understanding and compassionate and her approach is supported by research and proven methods.. She has extensive knowledge and understanding of nutrition and food. Her suggestions WORK since she knows and understands the psychology of food and human nature.

For over 30 years, I struggled with my relationship with food due to family history and a sport that promoted dieting. For the first time, I feel at peace with food. Ana has improved my perspective on food, and I no longer feel the extreme anxiety around food choices or eating. She has helped me to be more compassionate and understanding about myself. She really understands and knows nutrition and the human psyche. I look forward to every appointment with Ana. She helps me in so many ways - from my fitness regiment to planning out my meals, food suggestions to helping me to understand blood test results, and analyzing and evaluating impact of emotions and how to focus on taking care of my self."
