Navigate Nutrition Consulting, PLLC is a private practice nutrition counseling center located in Gig Harbor, WA that provides professional, quality nutrition therapy for adults and children. The mission of Navigate Nutrition is to help clients discover and choose their best options for diet and lifestyle changes to achieve optimal health.
The traditional paradigm for nutrition treatment was education-based. Using this model, nutritionists taught patients the do’s and don’ts of a special diet. Usually these dietary prescriptions gave little consideration to the complicating situations in a patient’s life.
Each person’s body and lifestyle is unique- what is right for one person may not be right for another. Nutrition counseling is an opportunity to discover which nutrition and lifestyle approach is best to provide you with nutrients and life long habits to achieve and maintain optimal health. Navigate Nutrition fosters partnerships that help clients achieve realistic, long-term nutrition and lifestyle changes.
Dr. Hamrick will work in conjunction with other members of your health care team to help improve your health. During your first visit, an initial nutrition assessment will be completed. The main purpose of this assessment is to gather information about your metabolic and lifestyle parameters and identify your nutrition goals to establish an appropriate nutrition intervention. Based on that information, Dr. Hamrick will help you discover and choose your best options for diet and lifestyle changes that will address your distinct health concerns.
While we will work with individuals for any diet plan, we specialize in weight and lifestyle management, fat and cholesterol control, blood pressure management, healthy digestion, diabetes education, food allergies and eating disorders. Our services include individual counseling, multiple session packages, group nutrition education classes, telephone/email consultations, research and public speaking.
