Shizumi - Integrative Nutritionist
She's very intuitive & knowledgeable, which makes for an exclusive & professional experience. She's pleasant to talk to, so I was comfortable asking many questions; she gave me answers that were tailored to my situation.Feb 16, 2018Verified
You will not find a better nutritionist and health coach than Shizumi. Since I began working with her I have lost 50 pounds, have gained huge amounts of energy and am in the greatest shape I have ever been in my life. She not only got me eating and exercising better but also improved my overall outlook on myself and my life. She has also helped me work on my confidence, organization skills, self image, and put perspective to what I direction I am moving in my life. I cannot put into words how much she has helped and educated me and I hope that anyone looking for a nutritionist has the good fortune to meet Shizumi.Jan 3, 2017Verified

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The best bet is for you and I to have that half-hour conversation where we can discuss your concerns/goals and my programs and fees. To provide a range for you, program fees are from $150 per month to $389 per month. Private instruction in dance or martial arts is $50 per hour.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I welcome a phone discussion so we can get a feel for each other. We’ll chat for half an hour or so, and if it’s a fit, we’ll get to work right away. The next step is a health history session, which goes a little longer than our usual sessions. But this is an important step, because this is where I start to really learn about you: your health history, your fitness, your goals, and just as importantly, how you want to feel and your life ambitions. Once we’ve completed a thorough health history, I will conduct any necessary research and put together an action plan for our time together. We’ll track your progress carefully, so you know exactly where you stand. Remember, this isn’t about judgment: this is about information, and information is power. My program is designed to empower you. If you’re committed, you’ll get where you want to go. Of that I have no doubt. I’m here to support you, cheer you on, and help you course correct when necessary.
