Your Team

Vicki Kobliner MS RDN

I am a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and Functional Nutrition expert, with extensive experience in helping improve the lives and health of children with complex illnesses such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, mood disorders, PANS/PANDAS/BGE, Lyme, and other chronic illnesses. I embrace a functional nutrition approach to care which seeks to identify root causes for chronic illnesses. Our bodies are unique webs of interrelated systems, and seemingly unrelated issues (for example, constipation, headache, anxiety, and eczema) are often a result of a single imbalance affecting multiple pathways. I have helped families all over the globe to better their children’s lives, by identifying nutritional, environmental, health, and lifestyle factors that families have the power to change.

She addresses the signs and symptoms of the disease as well as possible underlying causes from physical, environmental, and social factors.

Frequently Asked Questions


The program includes a thorough evaluation of factors contributing to your child’s health.

I will provide targeted, individualized guidance regarding assessment, herbs, supplements, therapies, and environmental and lifestyle interventions for your child, based on cutting-edge information.

Dr. O’Hara provides her perspective and expertise regarding the plan we develop.

Why should I sign up?

Because Dr. O'Hara and I are a great team and we have been working together for over 20 years. Because you get the combined experience of two experts in the field. Because the mentoring program offers you the opportunity to utilize my expertise virtually while providing access to all the knowledge and guidance Dr. O’Hara includes in her book “Demystifying PANS/PANDAS” without having to travel with your child to see her in person. The question really is “Why Not?”

Where will we meet?

We can work with you from anywhere – via a secure Telehealth platform.

Dr. O'Hara provides direct patient care only in NY, NJ, and CT, but through our mentoring collaboration, we help children all over the globe. There is no need to travel. 

This option is ideal for parents who have children with neurobehavioral challenges and live outside of CT, NY, and NJ areas or outside the U.S. and would benefit from the knowledge of renowned experts in the field.


How do we get started?

To take advantage of our mentoring partnership, you would first schedule an initial consultation with me during which we do a deep dive into your child’s history, including medical, environmental, lifestyle, and social factors that can powerfully influence growth, behavior and development. From there we would create our initial plan of action in preparation for the mentoring appointment.

Once the initial strategy is in place, our next session would include Dr. O’Hara to review the results of both the labs and the prior recommendations and any changes that have occurred.  

Follow-up is individualized for your child's unique needs. I am with you every step of the way in our ongoing journey. As part of the mentoring program, you also have access to Dr. O'Hara's expertise.
