More about Erika
What is one thing you would want patients to know about you?
I am passionate about helping my patients achieve greater health and improve their wellness through balanced nutrition and lifestyle modifications.
How do you go about making your treatment plans for FORM patients?
I look to establish goals and healthy behaviors in enjoyable, sustainable ways, no matter the patient’s current body size, health concerns, or past history with food. I’d like my patients to say goodbye to “diets” and learn to enhance their well-being in a way that works just for them.
Why do you love working with FORM patients?
I love working with FORM patients because I am confident our program WORKS! We use a variety of resources to help change our patient’s lifestyle for the better so they not only reach their goals but learn to implement these new behaviors long-term.
