I was so excited to meet with Marissa after seeing all the reviews. I was so disappointed. First I emailed her so say I may have to reschedule our first meeting because of a conflict. I explained to her I would let her know by the end of the day and she gave my appointment to someone else! I thought I was being nice giving her the heads up. Then I finally get the appointment and she hands me a diet and says follow this for 2 weeks see you then. I was shocked. If it was that easy to lose weight I would not have to spend $275 for that. I left feeling alone and not supported. 2 weeks later she never contacted me no follow up "how are you doing?"etc. 2 days before the appointment she emails be to reschedule for another week! I am completely disappointed.
If you are even THINKING about a nutritionist, hire Marissa! – Marissa is the best! She is kind, supportive, firm when necessary, and devoted. She helped me understand how my body works and kept me motivated. I never ever felt embarrassed or overwhelmed. Marissa helped me face my fears and embrace healthy eating - all while keeping a realistic attitude that an occasional piece of dark chocolate will not derail my efforts. Marissa understood my specific medical needs - eating for migraines -and helped me address this issue. She also helped me prepare for the biggest day of my life, my wedding! Marissa is the best money I have ever spent!!!!
Marissa is the best nutritionist out there! – I had gone to Marissa on a recommendation from a friend and I am so glad I have such good friends! Having high cholesterol issues in my family, Marissa specifically worked a nutrition plan for me that would not only help lower my cholesterol and lighten my weight, but also fill me up and keep me from reaching for those late night snacks. Within a 3 week span from my first visit, I had dropped 10 pounds. What I like most about Marissa is her ability to explain what things the body needs and why and why certain things are good and bad. I will continue to see her and recommend her services to all my friends.
Completely supportive and realistic! – Marissa works with you to create a program that fits your current lifestyle -- I was amazed when I dropped 10 pounds without even realizing I was eating all that differently! She's not about diets or unrealistic goals -- you just make small changes that are sustainable and satisfying! Plus she has tons of great meal ideas, and is warm, supportive and all-around fantastic to work with.
Patient & Understanding Friend and Advisor – I originally started seeing Marissa about 1 1/2 years ago, and was immediately impressed by her. At the time I had a very challenging schedule due to my long (and odd) hours working at a restaurant. It took us a little while to develop an optimal eating plan for me, but Marissa was always ready with new suggestions to help me make healthier choices and plan my meals & snacks in advance. It took me a little while to start losing weight, but once I actually started following Marissa's sensible advice the pounds started to fall off!
She is very open in her sessions, I never felt like she was judging me (even when sometimes weeks went by and I didn't lose any weight), she was always encouraging and willing to come up with new eating strategies until we found something that worked.
I had never worked with a nutritionist prior to working with Marissa, but I have tried all the "diets" out there (Weight Watchers, South Beach, etc.) and her practical approach to eating is the best advice I've received! I'm not currently seeing her as an active client, however she is still always willing to answer any questions I email her about food/diets etc. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to revamp their eating habits (whether for health or weight loss).
Best Decision I've Ever Made – After completing one of the most challenging experiences in my life (a marathon), I realized I had another challenge as a result; an entirely new body…and appetite! Half way through my training, I realized I was gaining weight and my energy was abnormally low. I don’t eat meat, so making sure I was putting the proper balance of proteins, complex carbs, etc into my diet was essential. I had no clue where to begin! Marissa not only helped me with all of my concerns, but she allowed me to accomplish personal health goals I haven’t been able to in years. Her genuine personality and openness really helped me to feel comfortable when expressing some pretty uncomfortable issues I had with nutrition. I am excited to say that after working with Marissa, I have been able to change my health habits around completely. I can’t express enough how wonderful she is both professionally and personally. It’s not often you can truly make a change…..she helps you to make that change a reality. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for nutritional guidance. Thanks, Marissa!
Highly Recommended! Changed my life... – Marissa is the best nutritionist I have ever worked with!
Marissa is nurturing, non-judgmental, and trustworthy. In the past, I had a very hard time sharing my issues with other nutritionists, and felt they were judging me. This was not the case with Marissa; I felt so comfortable opening up to her and sharing all of my issues with her. Because of this, I was able to work through my issues, develop a healthy relationship with food, and ease my gastrointestinal problems! She helped me work through everything in such sensible ways. My life is forever changed because of her. I would highly recommend Marissa to anyone!
Editorial Review – Registered dietitian teaches people to make healthier choices and about the benefits of certain foods.
Excellent Nutritional counceling and proven results – Marissa is probably one of the most understanding and experienced nutritionists I have worked with. She is able to help customized meal plans that are realistic and suitable to your daily life. She also understands that you live in the "real world" of temptation, emotions, and impluses and can help you find what works best for you to stay in control but not feel deprived. She has been very helpful to me lose weight, figure out my bodys needs, and keep me motivated. I recommend her to any and EVERY one!
Great nutritionist – After gaining a good deal of weight last year I finally decided to seek out a nutritionist to help me achieve my goals. I was eating a great deal of refined sugars and carbohydrates mainly so wanted to find a well balanced diet without going hungry at the same time. .I am very pleased to say that I have lost about 14 pounds so far after working with Marissa. She is a wonderful nutritionist and very encouraging.
