What others say about us

Lynn R. Zakeri, LCSW

“I have known Betsy for three years and from the first meeting I was impressed with her professionalism, knowledge and kindness. She is my go-to person for nutritional guidance and support and I am always much more confident when she is on my team when we share clients. I highly recommend Betsy, and often do recommend Betsy, to anyone looking for a nutrionist.”

“Betsy is very knowledgeable and highly skilled in a wide variety of nutritional concerns and problems that children and their families struggle with.  I truly value her opinion and couldn’t ask for a better resource and partner when it comes to children’s nutrition.  She connects with both children and their parents and truly is invested in their success.”

“After sharing my challenges with Betsy, she was able to map out a meal plan that was nutritional, realistic and completely possible! Prior to meeting with Betsy, I was literally at a loss as to how to plan nutritious meals.  I was constantly making concessions and not being consistent with the food choices I was giving my children.

To put it simply, Betsy empowered me to make good nutritional choices for my children.  Betsy has followed up several times after our initial meeting and responded quickly to all of my questions…”

“I’ve met with Betsy several times about my son, who was diagnosed with failure to thrive and developmental delays. He had many struggles with eating, and by the time I saw her I was setting the alarm every 2 hours to wake him up to eat. I was exhausted, and he was still losing weight. Eventually, he needed a feeding tube for a few months to help him catch up. Every visit with Betsy was tremendously reassuring, and filled with very practical guidance to help navigate a scary and stressful time. I finished every visit saying to myself ‘OK, I can do this!’. My son is now on the growth curve for the first time in his life, and thriving. No more feeding tubes, no special formulas, just a happy, healthy guy with a great appetite.”

Thank you SO much for your time with [my daughter]. When we were in the car I asked if she really liked it or was just being polite (because she was not thrilled to be going) and she said YES I actually really liked it a lot. I’m most excited about the meal planning.

We did meal planning this weekend, and I did a big shopping and we both know good and quick things to make now so [my daughter] doesn’t snack as much and she is keeping more balanced (it seems to me).

Thank you again for everything!
