Jan Katzen, AMI, CFP, CN
Nutritional Therapist & Educator
Jan began working at Melmed Center in 2017 and works with children, adolescents, and adults to identify and improve eating habits that may negatively impact physical and mental well-being. Services begin with a complete health and nutritional history. Individualized meal plans for nutritional adequacy are made along with interventions for carbohydrate addiction, restrictive/ disordered or over-eating, anxiety, pica, OCD, ODD, meltdowns, and more. Helpful, easy recipes are provided for positive sustainable results. Chewing therapy is also taught. Optimizing nutrition can improve the severity of co-occurring symptoms seen in ADHD, autism, developmental delays, sleep disturbances, and learning difficulties.
When Jan is not in the office, you can find her writing children’s books, playing original compositions on the piano (along with a little Beethoven), and spending time in the kitchen. She is passionate about dancing, especially Zumba. She loves city walking, hiking, watching movies, streaming TV series, and reading motivational books.
