For many people with diabetes, blood sugar takes a silent toll on cognition, memory, retention, and recall. It can diminish learning, raise stress levels, and spur additional maladies such as depression. It impacts all aspects of life, lifestyle and turns your life upside down. For the people close to them, it has an impact as well: they often must learn to cope with feelings of guilt, anger, being helpless, and worried about this complex health issues. My private practice helps clients of all ages and their families manage life with diabetes.

Struggling with lactose and gluten intolerance from a young age, Amie�s recipes cater to the Dairy and Gluten Free lifestyle, without sacrificing taste. Amie believes in everything in moderation.
