There comes a point in every journey when we feel we could benefit from a guide, a muse, or a mentor. Someone to help turn the stumbling blocks into stepping stones. I get real with my clients, so they can make real progress. We work together to create achievable, sustainable and enjoyable goals, so better health becomes a natural, joyful part of your life.
I’d love to be the guide on your journey to wellness.
As a Nutrition and Wellness Coach in Bethesda, MD for the past 10+ years, I’ve been helping my clients design their journeys to excellent health. We look at the food choices, nutrition, good habits and deep connections it takes to live well. I provide support, information, inspiration, insight and compassion.
This private, single session helps you reach a personal goal armed with information, motivation and inspiration.
We’ll chart your path to health and well being, examining food, movement, patterns, routines and realities so the healthy changes you make will work and stick.
This program is for you if you’re looking for long-term success and lifestyle change, with guidance and accountability as well as true hands-on support. You’ll get all the tools, resources, recipes, plans, AND the frame of mind to achieve your goals and truly transform your lifestyle.

"Linda’s One Day Immersion is a great way to jump start or re-boot your healthy lifestyle. While I am a long time Weight Watchers member, I was in a rut and needed help finding some new recipes and a new approach to eating. The day I spent shopping and cooking with Linda was incredible. We cooked amazing soups, sauces, and breakfast and she gave me a whole individualized and detailed plan to help me refocus and retool what I was already doing. I still turn to her recipes again and again. When I feel like I need some encouragement or support, Linda is so helpful and never judgmental. I continue to do one or two of her 10 day detox plans a year to help me continue on the healthy lifestyle journey."
"Through our work with Linda, we not only feel more confident at the grocery store, at restaurants, and in our home as we make choices about what we eat and drink, we look and feel healthier. An added and bonus was going through this experience as a couple. Our meetings gave us time together, without kids and other distractions, to just talk. We supported each other through any challenges and helped each other as we tried new foods and recipes. Learning about nutrition as a couple has made healthy eating a part of our home and our family life. Our three boys are eating healthier too as a result of what we have learned. It truly is a family affair! I cannot say enough about Linda, and about the incredible difference she has made in our lives."
“Simple Well Being isn’t just about nutrition. Linda helped me to set goals around work and relationships, and guided me to focus on the steps needed to reach them. I have experienced the deep satisfaction from this process and plan to always use this strategy in life. With great finesse, Linda works her style to fit each client’s personality. She has a very special gift and I would recommend her and her program heartedly!”
“When I first came to Linda, I had recently lost 40 pounds and was an avid gym rat. Why go to a nutritionist? I was ready to tweak my diet further by eating for my health, but I needed a teacher. Losing weight was only part of the puzzle, and I had done it by reducing caloric intake and adhering to a low fat diet. Well, guess what? Low fat diets don’t necessarily include healthy food. Working with Linda I have learned so much about HOW food works for our bodies and since everyone is different, how to tweak MY diet for MY body. But beyond that, Linda is a lovely person who has a unique ability of helping people, not just with their diet but the health of the whole individual. What I have learned from my program with Linda has not only changed my diet, but in so many ways, has vastly improved my quality of life. Linda is an expert at what she does!”
