Wellness in the News

What if it ISN'T everything in moderation?

Narrowing your food choices may be an effective step in managing or losing weight. Of course, the types of foods you choose will matter, too.

2022 Best Overall "Diets"


The results are in! Did your favorite fad diet make the list? Are you making choices that promote your overall long-term wellness? A few of these diets may help. We are here to help you, too!


The mindfulness skills Denise taught me have been the key to my ongoing success with my eating plan and with monitoring my stress levels. 

Denise taught me how to create the life I desire through good habits — whether they be sleep, exercise, or stress reducing self care — mastering them one by one and snowballing my successes into more success. 

Thank you for helping me see that taking care of myself in the best ways possible leads to the outcomes I desire.
