Our Philosophy & Values

The word Halcyon means a time of peace and tranquility. Our hope is that through our services our clients develop a better relationship with food.

Comprehensive

We assess your medical history, biometrics, current and past eating patterns and food preferences to make educated recommendations.

Expertise

We are credentialed RDNs who spent countless hours studying our craft. We translate science to proven outcomes.

Personal

You aren’t just a client to us, you are a person first. We treat every client with as much care and respect as we would our own loved ones.

Support

We offer support through follow-up sessions as often as you need. You can also contact us via our online chat system between sessions.

Balance

Our health coaching helps you discover overall balance through all tracks of health, taking a unique holistic approach on how we look and feel.

Synergy

Beyond a series of sessions, our efforts combined with your efforts are greater than the sum of their separate effects.

First time clients

We offer a free discovery call to assess your unique health needs and use this as a launch pad for your guided journey to feeling good.

We also make sure that we are accessible regardless of your income bracket. We are in-network with select insurance companies and provide a sliding scale payment program for our self-pay clients.

When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can't make them change if they don't want to, just like when they do want to, you can't stop them.

- Andy Warhol

With his partner, he moved to New York City and took a job as an in-patient clinical dietitian at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Wanting to spend more time counseling clients, Nicholas seized on the opportunity to start his own private practice, where he uses his extensive knowledge in nutrition and health to help people significantly improve their quality of life.
