"I just want to say thanks for helping me today. I've never seen a professional who actually understands this disorder and it is incredibly refreshing. I went and got [scary food] after I left, and even though I didn't know what was in it, i'm still feeling good!" - text from an eating disorder client, 2015 (used with permission)
"My experience of working with Libby has been great. She takes a personalized approach to a very personal matter. I can tell that she cares about me and that to her this is more than just a job, which makes progress so much easier." - Eating disorder client, 2012
"About a year ago was the first time I met with Libby and her counseling and nutritional advice over the past year has really changed my everyday life. Libby, from the start, offers and warm and inviting environment with sessions individualized to what you need. Additionally, she was available by phone, email or texting whenever I needed her throughout the week. This was hugely a part of my nutritional success, knowing someone was on my team. A year later, I can say I have a much healthier relationship to food and exercise and have so many more resources from Libby to know the best lifestyle for me and my body. I would recommend seeing Libby for any nutritional, diet or exercise related issue." -Ashley, 2015
"When you send your 1st child off to college it's an exciting time with a whole new chapter in life beginning. Some things remain though, and as in my daughter's case, it was an eating disorder that was manageable yet still lurking. She asked one of her professors if she could please give her a referral for a dietician with some qualities that were essential to her. She was referred to Libby. Her first meeting with Libby happened to be on the same weekend I was also visiting so I was able to meet briefly with her at the end of my daughter's appointment. From the beginning Libby was accommodating and caring. When my daughter's disorder came back with a vengeance, things became very worrisome for me because I was no longer there to make sure she was okay . . . but Libby was. She has been working closely with my daughter to keep her safe, to help her to recover and hopefully break free from the bondage of this disorder. Libby keeps herself available to help my daughter everyday and has been a huge blessing in her life since she has been up in SLO. My daughter knows she can go to her with any question or worry. She looks forward to her appointments and completely trusts her. They work hard together in the challenging times and rejoice together in the victories. Libby has also kept in touch with me. The reality of how special Libby is hit me a couple months ago when the reality of my daughter's condition and her body's weakness during the flu season put her at risk for hospitalization. After my initial fit of panic I composed myself and realized I actually had complete and total peace because I KNEW that Libby would take care of my daughter until I could get there.
This is why I needed to write this . . . a mom needs to know that her precious gift is going to be cared for not only by someone who is excellent in her field of knowledge and training but by someone who has also has a heart full of compassion . . . And when you find someone like that you want to let everyone know!"

"Working with Libby was a real treat, she really worked with me to make things challenging enough but place them at a level I could excel at. As we worked each time she pushed me in a way that made me want it for myself and helped me accomplish goals along the way that kept me motivated. Libby is definitely a solid choice you won't regret if you are ready to make a change no matter how big or small!"

"I am in a nurse in SLO that works 12 hour shifts and am a victim for bad eating habits. The stress, long hours, and depleted energy make it difficult to have a consistent diet. I tend to crave carbs, which according to Libby could be contributing to water retention, causing 2-3 pound increases daily. After taking her advice to maintain a more consistent daily calorie intake and cutting back (NOT cutting out) the carbs, I have lost the weight and have less weight fluctuation. Libby is always available for any nutrition questions I have and is competent in her field." -General weight loss client, 2013
"I run cross country for Baylor University in Waco, TX. My home is in Bakersfield, CA and SLO. I have had an eating disorder, which through counseling has been under control. My track coach is aware of this and asked that I work with a nutritionist as I train to make sure that I stay healthy both physically and mentally. (the Baylor nutritionist was very busy with the football team, so I decided to look locally) I found Libby and saw that she worked with nutrition as well as eating disorders and did a phone interview with her. She was so upbeat, positive and encouraging. We met in person over my spring break. We talked about my eating habits, calorie intake, training routines, and label reading. She even took me grocery shopping to teach me better choices. Even though I am in Texas we talk every week, text and email. I take photos of food I'm not sure about, and send them to her and she responds. She emails and keeps in touch with the nutritionist at Baylor so that they are all aware of my training and calorie intake to keep me on track and healthy. Libby has a passion for what she does and wants you to be successful. She works as hard as you do to achieve your goals." -Weight loss client, 2013
"There is so much information out there regarding fitness and health. Unless you do it for a living, it's really hard to understand all the techniques and strategies, let alone know how to use them effectively to support peak wellness. Understanding when to train hard and when to rest, or knowing what foods to eat and when to eat them, can get a bit overwhelming sometimes. When you're busy with school or work like I am, who has time to deal with all this?
I would highly recommend Libby for anyone who's looking for a professional to take the guess-work out of their health and fitness routine. I started training with Libby in early 2013 and am so glad I did. She's very knowledgeable, personable and adds energy and variety to my workouts (saving me from the monotony of my old routine). Having someone like Libby to motivate me, and keep the workouts fresh and upbeat, has boosted my fitness substantially. I get more out of one workout with her than three of my own. I'm really happy with the results I've been seeing. Thank you Libby!" -Fitness client, 2013
"I couldn't have asked for a better dietician than Libby! She has taken the time to really get to know me personally, and since this is such a personal process, that makes all the difference. I can tell that she sincerely cares about me, and she is always very understanding. She continually inspires me to do better and has motivated me when no one else could. I don't think that I could've come this far without her.
To sum it all up - Libby is the BEST!!" - Eating disorder client, 2012
