About

WebDr. Schulman’s approach to wellness is truly integrative due to her experiential learning and formal education.   After graduating from UCLA with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, she went on to achieve a master’s degree in public health nutrition, while completing her dietetic internship (registered dietitian/nutritionist) at the VA Medical Center, West Los Angeles. She completed her PhD in health behavior at the University of Florida and has recently completed a masters degree in clinical psychology.  Her research addressed the lack of nutrition education among doctors in the U.S. and she has published in several peer reviewed journals.  In addition, Dr. Schulman has taught numerous classes as an adjunct professor, worked a clinical dietitian at Dr. Dean Ornish’s Preventive Medicine Research Institute and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and led fitness classes at the Pritikin Longevity Institute and UCLA’s John Wooden Center.  Dr. Schulman describes that her “greatest and most satisfying job has been being a mom.” Dr. Schulman is a proponent of breastfeeding and takes a family centered approach to wellness.  While raising her children she wrote the books:  (1) Nutrition in Sickness and in Health and (2) Relational Nutrition: The Psychology of Attachment and Food Behavior.  Now available in print or as a Kindle or audio book.  Available at: www.amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com

Philosophy

Core Nutrition:  I have observed that healing from the core (or within) only happens when we address behavioral, psychological, and nutritional factors.  Without core nutrition, wellness goals can not be sustained.  Typically, my clients come to me after they have achieved their short-term goals, on a popular diet, and then regained all of their weight in the long-term.   I do not give “one size fits all” diets.  We will work together to create a personalized diet plan that works for you.  And I will help you to develop a healthier way of living.  For life!

  1. Personalized:  I design an individualized diet plans or will help you to identify a sensible diet that works best for your particular circumstances.
  2. Complementary:  I follow an integrated approach and believe that diet counseling is not a substitute for consultation or treatment by a qualified physician. Individuals living with medical problems should also coordinate with their providers to figure out what eating plan is right for them.
  3. Sensible:  I translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living.  I am current on the latest nutrition studies and will help you to make sense out of the conflicting information in the media.
