My name is Ruby Guzman, I live in California, I am married and the mother of three daughters. In 2003 I graduated as a dietitian at the Hogeschool. After having worked as a home care dietitian for almost eleven years, it was time for a new challenge and in mid-2015 I started my own practice. I am an all-round dietitian with experience in various diseases and patient groups. You can come to me with a wide range of nutritional questions.
I practice my profession every day with great pleasure and enthusiasm. Personal contact and the diversity of people, in particular, contribute to this. Time and again I see it as a challenge to coach and guide my clients towards their goals. Attention to the person behind the eating pattern makes my work extra interesting.
I have followed various training courses for that purpose, including the postgraduate course on the treatment of eating disorders for dietitians, the course Psychological support for eating and weight problems and the Emotion management workshop for overeating disorders.
During my office hours I regularly see overweight or obese people in combination with emotional eating (stress eating), unrestrained eating and / or binge eating. In order to better guide these people, I followed the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy training for dietitians in 2014.
