Core Needs NYC informs and educates families of children with developmental challenges or learning differences about the various treatment options available to them through media and personal consultations.
I am a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and love working with families of children with special needs. I especially enjoy helping parents learn about the connection between food and behavior and finding ways together to improve their child’s dietary and nutrition intake so that they feel better and learn better.
As a parent of a child on the autism spectrum who made remarkable progress with the help of dietary changes among other things, I have experienced it first-hand and have accumulated hundreds of hours of training and research in multiple approaches that include:
- Son-Rise Program
- MNRI – Reflex Integration Therapy with the Masgutova Method
- Diet and Nutrition
- Speech Therapy
- Sensory Integration Therapy
- Vision Therapy
- Self-Care for parents
My formal education includes: BFA in Film & Television from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts (1997), and certificate as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (2017).

“I am in awe both of Denise’s commitment to her own child and also of how she has channeled that commitment into equipping herself with the knowledge she has needed to create dramatic and meaningful changes in his life. I have received better advice from Denise than from most of the doctors I have worked with over a period of many years. You will not find someone who is more knowledgeable about various therapies and treatments, both those which are favored by traditional Western medicine practitioners and alternative treatments and including both the benefits and the risks and downsides of those therapies and treatments. She has accumulated a wealth of valuable knowledge, including in particular on dietary concerns and ways to make food which is good for our kids’ bodies and brains but also tasty. I have benefitted from her counsel and advice and encourage others to consult her webpage and to take advantage of her services. You will gain lots of valuable information to help you to make better choices for your child!” – Patric, NYC
“I met Denise when my son was newly diagnosed. I was completely falling apart and devastated. I did not know what to do, or from where to start. Denise gave me a hope and wright direction, she spoke with me about Autism, she helped me to understand what it was and how everything in body was connected. She gave me advise from where to start, how to research and educate myself to better help my son. My perspective totally changed. I call Denise walking library. The most important thing is that she genuinely wants to help, always cares and ready to share her experience and knowledge! I got lucky I meet her!! I am forever thankful!!” – Lali, NYC
