Jeff wolfsberg - What Matters
You can read my bio if you wish or what most nutritional people want to put on their site "My Story" which tends to be long boring paragraphs about things that probably don't matter to you anyway. Here's what I think matters. I'm well educated on the topic of nutrition, behavioral change, exercise, mental health and addiction. When I don't know something or your needs exceed my skill set, I'll refer you to someone in my network smarter than me. Lastly, I was sick, most of it arguably self-inflicted by poor eating, lifestyle choices, mental health (trauma/depression), and addiction. I ran through the typical channels; therapy (lots), treatment (many times), and medication. Some helped, most didn't, some made problems worse. The final word on that is that if I relied on those models or someone else to get me well, I'd be dead. I got well and have sustained my health through diet and exercise (yoga for me). My turning point? You alone have to take control of your life. No excuses, no blaming. There is no pill, person (that includes me), program, or thing that is going to fix you. You are.
I work with men, couples, and families.
