Eating to improve your digestive health.
Welcome to Blue Tree Nutrition!
I help people with digestive distress overcome their symptoms, so they can regain control of their life.
My goal is to determine which nutrition path is best based on your diagnosis and symptoms. I see individuals with a variety of gastrointestinal and autoimmune issues. For many, the problem begins in the gut. The education will be very individualized, and based on the most up to date nutrition information.
Education is provided on a wide range of gastrointestinal and autoimmune disorders such as:
– Celiac Disease
– Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
– Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s/Colitis)
– Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
– Sucrase-Isomaltase Deficiency
– Breast Implant Illness
– Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome
– Lyme Disease
Specializing in the FODMAP

Thank you for solving the bacterial overgrowth issue I struggled with for two years. You are the only one who even thought to recommend a SIBO test. You have given me a better quality of life! A.N-Ohio
Valerie has been an incredible resource in my journey to healing and gut health. When I was diagnosed with SIBO, I felt so overwhelmed by what to eat and how to meal plan. Valerie’s calm demeanor was comforting and her knowledge is extensive. She gave me super practical meals within my budget. I can say she was a key contributor to my health!
Valerie is an amazing resource that offers her education and support, in a very understanding professional manner.
I have a complex gut with many food sensitivties. Valerie is patient with my needs. I appreciate her commitment to continuous education by reaching out to the experts in the world of GI medicine and research, as the science is continuously ever changing.
My experience with Valerie has been wonderful. I was diagnosed with both celiac disease and SIBO and was left feeling like a fish out of water with what my “new normal” of diet needed to look like.
Valerie has been my biggest resource on navigating this “new normal” and having her help guide me through these health challenges has been wonderful- she’s been able to prepare a food plan and meal ideas that I am excited about. She’s a wealth of knowledge on all things gut-related and is the best resource.
I’m so thankful for her and cannot recommend her enough.
Valerie provided concise pragmatic nutritional information on FODMAPS and clarified the grey areas around celiac testing, clearly laying out the options. She is not dogmatic but flexible and a good listener. Her consultations cleared out some of the fog in my mind with respect to Celiac Disease and helped me understand where I needed to go from here.

Valerie counseled our family regarding how to start the Low FODMAP Diet for our 15 year old daughter with IBS and gluten intolerance. She was very knowledgeable about the diet and how to implement it. She was also great at following up with us and providing ongoing support.
