I am a Brazilian trained Dietitian and NZ Registered Nutritionist with over 20 years experience to help you reach your goals and feel much better! What you eat has such a huge impact on your emotional, social and physical wellbeing and helping people to have a healthy relationship with food is a passion of mine. I can help you with everything from emotional and dysfunctional eating, to managing health issues like diabetes, cholesterol, PCOS, food intolerances and gut health problems. We will work together to find a solution that works for you!

Got insurance? Check to see if your policy covers 'Registered Nutritionist' as you might be eligible to claim back part of the consultation cost when you book to see me.

"I was 20kg's overweight and decided to change my diet and lifestyle. I didn't think it would change much by having professional advice, because I tried all the diets for so many years that would give me momentary results. Besides being an excellent professional, Erika is a great partner in this long term journey which is food reeducation. To have someone that encourages you in a fun way by not cutting out everything that you love eating, but adapting them to your daily life was really essential." Mariana
"As a doctor I have a very busy life, often I would have to work day and night shifts that affected my eating habits. I know that good eating habits are the base line for a healthy life. With Erika's food and health monitoring I achieved my goals in a very healthy way and nowadays I use all this learning to help my patients." Dr Caio Uemura
"Erika was very diligent, persistent, encouraging, and knowledgeable. She was very kind but also stern and assertive when I needed her to be. She helped me become better with my eating habits and ultimately lose weight. I would recommend Erika to anybody looking for a Dietitian/Nutritionist, and especially to those, like me who tried everything and who have been up and down with their weight their whole life." Jeremy
