Introduction: Your lifestyle is your best medicine! You are the answer! What I offer: I help people build a healthier lifestyle one step at a time and one bite at a time. I am an Integrative & Functional Nutritionist offering Nutrition Counseling via Telehealth. I use an interactive Health & Nutrition App to tailor nutrition education and also coach you every step of the way with lifestyle changes. I am very invested in my clients’ journey and well being and enjoy watching clients transform and make real progress! They in turn feel supported and empowered to eat better and live healthier and more productive lives. I accept these insurances: BlueCross Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim, Aetna, Allways, Medicare, United, and Tufts. (Please note: these insurances cover work done in MA, NH, and select other states. Please check with me). My health philosophy: I believe that a healthy lifestyle is the best medicine. A healthy lifestyle is rooted in prevention and involves nutrition, psychology, and exercise. These three pillars of health interact to create our body’s expression. When these areas are optimized and in harmony, we learn to relax, trust, and allow, a state that supports greater balance, stronger immunity, more energy, and, ultimately, happiness. My story: I became wildly passionate about nutrition through the process of rebuilding my lifestyle in order to prevent chronic migraines and regain health (and my sanity!) My mission has become to urge & inspire a paradigm shift rooted in the mindset that health is possible, to empower others to trust their own strength and resilience, and to provide them with tools to become active participants in their health expression. I look forward to helping you in your healthy journey!

I’ve loved working with Silva on my health and nutrition goals. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, and helps carve out realistic goals and approaches. She’s communicative and professional while also being super down to earth. I can’t recommend her enough!!

Silva has helped me with how I approach nutrition. But she’s also very thoughtful and intuitive - so her therapy isn’t just about diet, it’s the whole person.

Thank you so much Nicole! It's been a pleasure seeing more connection taking place for you.

Rubi is the best! I was lucky to find her for help with my mom who was in really bad shape in terms of her diet and overall health. She would complain weekly whether it was from constipation or just not feeling "right". We took a hard look at my mom's water intake and the foods she was consuming on a regular basis and began making Rubi's recommended changes. Now it's been a couple months since I remember my mom voicing a complaint at all with how she felt. She's finally on the right path and we're kicking some of her medications to the curb as a bonus. Couldn't be happier!

I love working with Silva. She is so attentive and really makes you know she’s listening and understanding you and your thought processes. She fosters a very safe environment for you to really dig deep and learn about nutrition. Highly recommend!

I have benefited so much from working with Silva, who was recommended to me by my sister. I have PCOS that has been getting worse as I get older (I was recently diagnosed with diabetes), and I was feeling like anything I ate made me exhausted and doctors were routinely dismissive. Comparing my quality of life and knowledge of what to do for my health before I met Silva and after several months of working with her is a very different picture. I now look at the food I eat as an important tool in feeling energized, I know more about the combinations and types of food that will feel good for me, and I've been able to do some deep dives into being more thoughtful and compassionate about some of my food habits and prior beliefs. Silva has also helped me to understand more about my hormonal/metabolic condition and how food is impacted by it, and has approached me in a compassionate and holistic way in learning how to feel better. I feel a renewed and hopeful re-investment in my health, feel more energetic, am eating food that tastes and feels good to eat, and have a gentler and kinder relationship with my body and food. I highly recommend working with her. Thank you, Silva!

Thank you Stacy! I loved working together and expanding that awareness of the inner most beliefs and exploring all kinds of aspects about food & weight as well as figuring out compassionate ways to move forward and build the lifestyle that works with you and your body and gives you the health you deserve to have!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Nutrition counseling is typically covered by insurance. These are the plans I currently work with: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim, Aetna, Tufts, Allways, Medicare, United.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Onboarding a new client is the most important step. The initial assessment is a very thorough healthy history review. At this time, we set up a rapport and also determine the main goals to work towards. Typically, clients will log food & lifestyle choices especially at the beginning of the work to help determine most important areas of focus. Depending upon the individual's goals and commitment, the work can last as little as 2-3 months, but typically longer especially when chronic diseases are involved and a whole life transformation is necessary.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a Registered Dietitian and licensed in the states of MA and NH.
