I have known Monica for over 3 years now and I just have nothing but good things to say about her. No fad diets over here. She is helpful, accesible, knowledgeable, warm.. can I rate her 10 starts? If you are looking for help to adopt a realistic healthy lifestyle (not like we typically see on social media these days with cookie cutter advices), then Essence is your place. More...

Essence Nutrition changed my life! Their holistic approach which was designed for me allowed me to achieve my goals without having to sacrifice things I love or make any drastic changes. They know how to approach any challenge humanely and without gimmicky tricks and diets. Amazing! More...

I had been looking for Essence Nutrition before I ever heard the term concierge nutrition services. Now that I have worked with RDN - Michele, I will probably never look any further again! The reality is sticking to an eating lifestyle is hard and a work in progress, therefore working with someone who is akin to a coach and who is interested in tailoring the process to how you learn/work is key to success. Its no gimmick or fad or fast diet so for anyone who is looking for something quick and easy, you won't  find it here. Essence Nutrition is a very unique dynamic with a bunch of services that you can make work for you. To me, knowledge is power and I like having a resource that is encouraging and motivating and not judgmental. Overall, I am happy and working my best at my own transformation. My only hope is that the interface that is used to answer the questionnaire, communicate etc. becomes more compatible with smartphones and hopefully the future will include some kind of app, but that wouldn't stop me from recommending this to a friend!

Having Monica in my life has been a game changer. Her enthusiasm and energy is contagious and will uplift anyone's day immediately. Her knowledge and passion for improving the lives of others through nutrition is one of a kind. Another aspect that makes Monica unique is her customized approach to each client. She understands that each person has different needs. She's goes the extra mile to meet those needs and exceed all expectations. It's no surprise that huge companies and sports teams seek her for her expertise! More...

Monica was absolutely wonderful in helping me identify bad habits and finding healthy food I actually enjoy eating. I was astonished by the amount of material and knowledge she transferred during our initial meeting. I would highly recommend Essence Nutrition to anyone looking to change their outlook on life. And don't wait to sign up! She's always booked at least a month out. More...

If you believe you're getting your typical dose of clinical guidance, you wont get this here! Monica is SUPERB at what she does while allowing her true self to be visible to all of her patients. Not only is she incredibly knowledgable of her field of study, she provides a unique approach to the treatment, guidance, and accountability to her clients.

I have been able to get to know Monica on a personal and professional level and when I say that she wants to see the success of EVERYONE that she comes into contact with both in her personal and professional life it would be an understatement. As a chef, it is very hard to guide a client in the depths of understanding nutrition, often leaving clients confused on which way is up. Monica does a wonderful job letting you feel like a real person when it comes to eating and living well! So much love for this dietitian!

Monica is such a great dietitian. She is very experienced and knowledgeable and at the same time is able to simplify and break things down so that they're easy to understand and apply to your every day life. She doesn't just tell you what to do but also explains why it's important, which is what has motivated me to make changes in my diet and stick to them. Plus she's so fun and nice, a pleasure to work with. More...

Monica has an amazing energy, she’s knowledgeable and so fun to be around. I wouldn’t want to receive nutrition and health advice from anyone else. She seriously helped me overcome a health obstacle and was incredibly quick in responding to all of my concerns! More...

I came across essence nutrition on instagram last spring and have been a loyal client since. Monica and team has helped me put together a sustainable plan that has helped me lose weight and they've made it fun. They reshaped the way I think about food and I am so grateful for that! Also, they are ALWAYS available for questions which is key. More...

Monica is the bomb diggity. Would give her 10 stars if I could. She is always accessible, super helpful, fun/hip/upbeat/awesome. NOT boring about healthy eating, and always so fun to have sessions with. 10/10 recommend and her Healthie app/concierge service is the best! Her pup Madeline is also the cutest!! More...

Monica is one of the best in the industry. Constantly expanding her knowledge, I trust her with all of my nutrition and dietary needs. If there is anything that is in need of necessary further exploration - Monica is your one stop information station stop. Bubbly and bright, she makes you feel nothing less than a close family member and is sure to find a plan to fit your needs (all while including delicious treats!) thank you !!!!! More...

I was looking for a dietician and I came across Monica from Essence Nutrition here on Yelp. I decided to reach out to her to schedule an appointment. Doing so was easy enough and she was able to get me an initial appointment a few weeks out (There's a high demand for someone as highly recommended), she asked me to fill some forms online to get to know me and I was all set. I met Monica at her office where she was ready to go at my scheduled time. (It was great to start right on time with no waiting.) She was very enthusiastic and professional. We went over the information that I had sent her, while she asked me additional questions about my goals, eating habits and exercise routines. As she was talking to me she was crafting my personalized dietary guidelines specifically to meet my needs.She had such a friendly demeanor that the hour went by quickly and it felt like I was just talking to a friend that wanted to help me eat healthily I'm just getting started now but I had no doubt that with such a talented and motivational dietician, eating healthy will be a fun and painless process.

If I could update my review to 6 stars, I would. To date I've lost around 40 pounds, and yesterday I placed first in my age division in my first ever duathlon -- none of which would be possible without Monica's wisdom!! If you're on the fence, CALL HER.

Monica has completely changed my life! I grew up as an athlete and always ate relatively clean but somewhere in my twenties I lost my perseverance. I gained weight, felt sluggish and developed adult acne. After meeting with monica and her listening to All my needs likes and dislikes she developed an AMAZING plan for me. Within a week of the new plan I lost 3 pounds skin was flawless and I had so much energy I completely stopped drinking caffeine except a small coffee in the morning. Her plan was easy to stick to even when I'm traveling for work and living in a hotel for weeks on end. If your looking for someone who knows they're stuff isn't gonna give you the diet pill loaded plan monica is the person to see! I'm so thankful I found her!!! More...

As I prepared for my wedding this summer, I was really overwhelmed with planning and needed to LITERALLY take something off my plate. Monica's bridal plan made it more than easy to get my body picture perfect and totally revolutionized the way I eat and view food. good news: I survived the wedding and I am STILL thinking about Essence Nutrition every time I take a bite. and I love chia seeds now more than i ever thought i would.

Before I met Monica, I was the quintessential "skinny-fat girl:" I never worked out, had outrageous cholesterol numbers, ate tons of cheese and drank lots of vodka . .. but because I'm naturally thin, I never thought twice about it. Monica has helped me become more mindful about what I eat, get serious about amping up the vitamins in my diet, and balancing the indulgences I love (re: cheese and vodka) with healthy choices that give me more energy and fuel a balanced life. Today, I woke up, went to Barre, made a healthy green smoothie, and feel incredible. Monica has helped me LOVE feeling healthy and understand the difference between looking good and being fit inside AND out. I am so grateful for what she has brought to my life (and pantry). Invaluable knowledge for an amazing lifestyle! More...

Monica is an intelligent and passionate dietitian, who genuinely cares about her clients' health and relationships with food. She is knowledgeable and professional, yet kind and very amiable,  which makes it easy to discuss with her your health, nutrition, food issues. Essence Nutrition doesn't try to sell you supplements or diet and food gimmicks... You will learn, and eventually acquire, positive food and nutrition habits that fit with your individual wants, needs, and lifestyle. I thank her for all that she has taught me! More...

Monica is a true professional. I sought her counsel after my pregnancy and received an almost spa-like experience; she is extremely sharp, charming, and empathetic. She sent me the most detailed, realistic plans along with many pages of precious nutrition educations, and even made me a personal recipe page. She was adamant about checking in with me to monitor my progress. I can now say that I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight with her invaluable help and was completely enchanted with the Essence Nutrition experience. More...

Loved Monica! She is warm and personable and so full of knowledge. She was so good with our 10 year old son. She went out of her way to work with him in regards to his diet.

Great dietetic knowledge is scarce in Miami. Monica really knows her stuff! Concierge service from beginning to end. If you are lost in your eating habits, or just want to live a healthier lifestyle, contact Essence Nutrition!
