Voula has honestly changed my life
“Voula has honestly changed my life. She has changed the way I think about food and I have forgotten about dieting and thinking of food as the enemy. It is not the enemy; it is pure joy if you enjoy and savor it. I was obsessed with counting calories before and now I’m not. I didn’t feel good about myself because I was always tired. I wasn’t eating the correct foods to help with my energy level. My mood is now better, I am not as cranky and stressed out. I feel more energetic so I feel like I can get more things done during the day like housework and playing with my daughter.
Voula is a dietitian/nutritionist, therapist, exercise consultant and mindfulness coach all wrapped up in one! I highly recommend her. She has really changed my life!”
After taking her 4 week workshop, I have changed the way I eat!
“Before taking Voula’s 4-week Workshop “Stop The Vicious Cycle”, I was wanting to lose weight and better manage my blood sugars.
After taking her 4-week workshop, I have changed the way I eat! I eat better snack combinations that leave me feeling more satisfied for a longer period of time. For every meal I eat, I push my plate away as soon as I am satiated.
I definitely would recommend this workshop to others! I have not only changed the way I eat, but I pay more attention to what I eat. I also consistently use the 1-10 scale to assess my level of hunger – that is an amazing tool which has been an enormous help to me!
I think it would be impossible to resist Voula’s enthusiasm! She truly believes in what she teaches, and that it works; that belief combined with her enthusiasm and effervescent personality is irresistible.
Thank you, Voula!”

I feel better about myself, my body, and I am much happier now
By using her mindfulness tools, I was able to assess my hunger/fullness cues and reign in my emotional eating. I now feel less bloated, fit into my clothes better, and I’ve controlled excessive drinking that was leaving me tired and bloated the next day. I feel better about myself, my body, and I am much happier now that I am in control of my eating. I was also able to enjoy ice cream cake without guilt as a part of my mindful eating process.
Voula is exceptionally gifted at guiding and motivating her clients. I highly recommend Voula to anyone who wants some life changing nutritional coaching!”
I have more self-confidence and feel better internally
“When I decided I wanted to work with a nutritionist, I had a mindset of all or nothing. I either needed to have the perfect diet and exercise regimen or do nothing at all. I tried many fad diets like medifast and keto. I wanted to see results quickly and only cared about numbers.I remember at one point, I was constantly snacking throughout my day and could not go 2 hours without putting something in my mouth. I felt bloated, self conscious about my weight, and did not feel good in my clothes. I had no energy to perform life functions. I was too tired to cook and leaving my house was a chore.
After working with Voula, I have more self-confidence and feel better internally.I feel inspired and motivated to keep going. I have less headaches and less days where I feel sick from overeating. I am more active and therefore have more energy. I take the time to check-in with what my body is telling me — a concept I have never been able to do beforehand. Voula is patient, realistic, and models how to be radically kind towards myself. She helped me understand the mindset-shifts I needed to make and focus on the whole-person instead of just diet. Voula has really instilled long-term change that has led to me having a happier and healthier life. Voula is passionate, empathetic, knowledgeable, personable, and culturally competent. I highly recommend her!”
She has been flexible and inventive, which has opened up new choices for me
I decided to work with Voula because she was supportive and non-judgemental. It was a relief that she didn’t want me to stop eating certain foods and introduced me to a new way of looking at my eating. I am now paying attention to the taste of my food and enjoying it. I mostly eat when I’m hungry and not out of emotion. Eating is no longer a focus of hopelessness. I feel more freedom and space in my life. I’m not constantly thinking about eating certain foods that I think aren’t good for me and if I do eat those foods, I know when I’ve had enough, and stop.
Voula meets people where they are and doesn’t impose her own idea of where they should be. She has been flexible and inventive, which has opened up new choices for me. She also has a lot of patience when change is slow or difficult. I would recommend Voula if you want to work with someone who goes deep into the root issues and doesn’t focus on dieting.”
So knowledgeable about nutrition and has a genuine passion for helping people
Voula helped me learn to listen to my body, and check in with myself when eating to ensure I’m eating because I’m hungry and not bored, stressed or tired.
I have made progress developing daily habits that help nourish my body with good food and movement that are sustainable.
I am no longer obsessed with dieting, and routinely check in with myself when making food choices. Voula is so easy to talk to and has no judgement. She took the time to really figure out why I felt stuck. She is very good at tapping into the specific needs of her clients and crafting a plan that works for them. She is also so knowledgeable about nutrition and has a genuine passion for helping people.
I really enjoyed her recipe suggestions as well as our grocery store outing. I was blown away with her knowledge on label reading and “what to look for in the aisles”.I would absolutely recommend Voula! She is not only an expert in nutrition but her passion for helping others find what works best for them is very apparent when working with her. She really helped me flip the switch on my nutrition journey and focus more on progress and not perfection! I’m so grateful. Thank you, Voula!”
I would happily recommend Voula, she is a true gem!
“My health had been upset because of a back problem. I had not been able to do my regular exercise routine and wasn’t making good food choices. I felt discouraged and unhealthy. I wanted to find a safe, healthy exercise routine as well as a balanced diet. With Voula’s help I gained a better sense of macronutrients, food combinations and meal planning. She also helped point me to the right exercise program that would safely help me get moving again. Her easy-going approach and passion to get me to my health goals in order to be successful, was truly motivating! I also loved her supermarket tour! It was fun with a wealth of information I can now apply when I go food shopping. I would happily recommend Voula, she is a true gem!”
She is not only extremely knowledgeable about nutrition, but she is so much fun to be around!!!
After working with Voula, I definitely have more energy, and I am not obsessed with going on a diet!!! I am much more organized with my food shopping, and I am now making the time to cook healthier meals. I used to think that healthy foods could not possibly be delicious, but Voula actually took the time to cook with me in order to show me that healthy foods could really taste yummy!! This was actually part of her program!
Working with Voula is pure joy! I definitely would recommend her services because they are so individualized. She is not only extremely knowledgeable about nutrition, but she is so much fun to be around!!! She has the best personality and she truly is a gem!! Voula listens very carefully to everything I say and she really works hard to make things work for ME!! She is kind, thoughtful and caring and truly wants to help me attain my goals and is always extremely supportive. She truly is the best!!!!”
Voula celebrates gains and helps me gradually make realistic improvements without being too overwhelmed
“I came to Voula because I experienced sudden weight gain and was feeling lightheaded and weak at certain times of the day. It worried me that I’d be in a situation where I’d feel lightheaded/ill but would still have to walk/bike home. It made it difficult to enjoy outdoor physical activity like biking or hikes because I would worry that I might start feeling unwell.
Voula helped me better plan out my meals and make snacks and meals more balanced. The food I was eating wasn’t timed well, so I would run out of “fuel” and feel lightheaded. By better planning, I’m more confident going on hikes or long bike rides because I know I’ll feel strong enough to do so. This was a huge improvement to my wellbeing and reduced so much stress. I now have more energy from the diet modifications I made with Voula. This has lowered stress and made it more feasible to do physical activities I enjoy.
Voula celebrates gains and helps me gradually make realistic improvements without being too overwhelmed. She is very positive and helps renew my motivation to take good care of myself. She’s able to carve out about two clear next steps so that meetings aren’t overwhelming. YES! I would definitely recommend working with Voula!”
You have made such a huge difference in the way I eat and feel

I am no longer hungry and fit better into my clothes
“Before working with Voula I did not feel like my ‘best self’ and was unhealthy. I had low energy and went through my day feeling hungry. As a busy professional, I put work first and ignored the way I felt for a very long time. I decided to work with Voula because I wanted to start eating better and was intrigued with her ‘non diet approach’.
After working with Voula I am more conscious of what I eat. I enjoy eating more vegetables and have started cooking and still have time to work and do other things. I allow myself to enjoy ice cream and desserts and no longer feel stressed about doing so. I am no longer hungry and fit better into my clothes. Voula was very empathetic and willing to listen and customize a plan to fit my lifestyle.
I highly and strongly recommend Voula’s services, especially if you are a busy working professional like myself.
Thank you Voula!”
I am more in tune with my body, have more energy and enjoy eating
I have not only become proficient at reading food labels and picking the foods that are good for my cholesterol and blood sugars, but I now know when I am hungry and when I am full. I am more in tune with my body, have more energy and enjoy eating. I have also lost 8 lbs during my time with Voula without focusing on losing the weight.
Working with Voula has been a joy. She is confident, knowledgeable, and encouraged me all the way. I can not say enough about Voula other than I highly recommend her!”
I am now able to enjoy my pregnancy and get excited about the energy I will have (and need) when my daughter is born
As I began working with Voula, I noticed that I was better able to manage my blood sugars and weight during the pregnancy. I now have more energy, and I am making better choices that don’t stop me from living life the way I did before. It has actually made me realize I should have done this a long time ago! Voula’s program is not about what you can’t do, but rather how to manage your whole health based on what you are already doing. I now feel confident that I am producing a healthy baby and creating healthy habits for my family and I for life!
What I enjoy the most about working with Voula is her ability to motivate me, her wisdom, and how she connects with me as I continue on my journey. Voula is really good at understanding me and making recommendations that are a good fit. Voula cares about my progress and has helped me make long lasting behavior changes. She really knows how to break things down and her expectations are realistic and manageable.
Without Voula’s help I could have never imagined that at 6 months pregnant I would feel so good and have such great control of my diabetes while potentially avoiding unnecessary complications. It’s not easy to make these changes on your own,so having Voula there has made a huge difference. I highly recommend her services!”
Voula’s authentic concern and love for her clients are palpable
Voula’s authentic concern and love for her clients are palpable. She wants you to succeed and is willing to go above and beyond for her clients. Voula connects the heart and the brain to make needed changes. Voula’s coaching is phenomenal!”
Voula is good about coming up with a plan that works for the individual’s likes and dislikes and special dietary requirements
After working with Voula, I am no longer “hangry”, I exercise consistently and sleep better as a result. Voula is good about coming up with a plan that works for the individual’s likes and dislikes and special dietary requirements (Kosher). I feel that during our time together I have made good progress and don’t feel I could have come up with a plan or achieved the necessary changes without her help and her cheering me on!”
