Profile and Credentials        

Meredith Sobel, Founder and Holistic Health Counselor

Sobel Wellness was founded by Meredith Sobel, a Holistic Health Counselor studying at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York, NY. The Institute of Integrative Nutrition is the only nutrition school integrating all the different dietary theories—combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies with modern concepts like the USDA food pyramid, the glycemic index, the Zone and raw foods. For more information about my education, please go to integrativenutrition.com.

Meredith received her undergraduate degree in religion and biology from Columbia University's Barnard College in New York City. After graduation, she held a part-time position as a prep cook and assistant pastry chef at Tocqueville, a well-known boutique restaurant in Union Square. In addition to her culinary endeavors, Meredith worked at Accenture in management consulting and at Bloomberg LP in financial modeling and news reporting before heading off to Boston to begin her graduate studies. At Harvard University, Meredith discovered rowing and became a member of the Harvard Business School Rowing Club. After she completed her Master's Degree in Health Economics, Meredith returned to New York to work in clinical operations and later on in regulatory planning at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Meredith's work at NYP gave her experience with different patient populations such as people with diabetes, cardiac conditions, oncology and obesity. During her time at NYP, Meredith also discovered marathons and triathlons. Meredith became ever more interested in her own health, which motivated her to lose weight, eat healthier and desire to study nutrition more formally. Over the past year Meredith has been studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Meredith left NYP to put her personal interests in fitness and recreation, her public health background, culinary talent and business skills to better use -- to form Sobel Wellness, to fulfill her dream to help individuals make healthy food choices, cook healthy, eat healthy and delicious food and find more balance in their lives.

As an avid runner and triathlete, Meredith has completed the Westchester Olympic Distance Triathlon in September of 2006 and the required nine road runners races in New York City to qualify for the 2008 NYC Marathon in which she plans to compete. She continues to enjoy running and biking in her spare time as well as cooking, dancing and watching movies with happy endings.

Work Hours and Fee Schedule        

When was the last time you talked with someone about your health and received the personal attention you deserve?

It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to work on their nutrition and goals with a trained professional. As a health counselor, I am here to create a supportive environment while we explore what really works for you.

Could one conversation change your life?

Find out by scheduling a free consultation with me.

We will discuss your unique situation in depth and determine how I can help you reach your personal goals.

All healing will be done through food and lifestyle changes as well as emotional and spiritual support. A community for online resources for fresh organic food and practitioner recommendations will be launched early in 2008. Stay tuned.

Please contact me to set up an initial consultation to find out how you can introduce positive change into your life. To learn more about my training and expertise, please read the about section. For cooking classes and events please see the cooking classes/events tab.

Holistic Health Counseling        

Holistic Health Counseling is a unique, exciting innovation in health and nutrition. As a Holistic Health Counselor, I have studied all the major dietary theories and will help you discover what approach works best for you at this point in your life.

While most dietitians dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restrictions and lists of good and bad foods, I work with my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.

No one diet works for everyone. I will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you according to the theory of bio-individuality. I will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.

One to One Health Counseling through a six month program. Twice monthly sessions for 50 minutes. Goals will be set and discussed at each session as well as suggestions for how you can make positive changes for your health and well being.

Group Sessions through twice monthly small group coaching sessions over a six month period similar to my one on one program but focused on a group with similar interests.

24 Hour Email Support offered through an interactive google group forum made up of invited participants from all my programs.
