VIRTUAL NUTRITION COUNSELING

A little bit about one on one coaching....

 

I treat every one of my patients as individuals with unique backgrounds, lifestyles, and eating preferences. While it will look different for each person, I truly believe that it is 100% possible to achieve even complicated health and nutrition goals while still enjoying the pleasures of food. Nutrition counseling sessions with me are relaxed and fun, and I will meet you where you are right now. We will focus on attainable steps that will be built upon with each subsequent visit - so that the knowledge and skillsets you are learning will last for the long term.

Below are some frequently asked questions.  Please feel free to reach out to me directly if there is something that you would like to discuss with me that is not listed.  I'm always happy to chat. :)

Who Will Benefit From Nutrition Counseling? 

I help individuals struggling with weight, digestive disorders (IBS, Celiac, etc.), and chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.  Many of my patients have tried countless diets with little success and are looking for a way out of that cycle. I also see athletes wanting to improve their sports nutrition, as well as those who are just beginning a healthy eating journey. 

What's the Difference Between a Dietitian and a Health/Wellness Coach?

In the United States, anyone can call themselves a nutritionist. Registered Dietitians (RD's) hold a bachelors degree from an accredited university, have completed a 1,200-hour internship, a certification exam, strict adherence to a code of ethics, and regular continuing education.  Many RD's (including myself) also hold Master's Degrees.

Are Your Services Covered by Insurance?  

Many of my patients receive either partial or full reimbursement for my services; I provide them with a superbill, which is an itemized list containing the appropriate diagnostic codes.  Reimbursement will depend on your unique plan.  

How long will my session last?  

The majority of my sessions are 60 minutes.  Established clients are able to purchase 30 minute follow ups. 

Is there a set visit schedule that I need to adhere to?

3 session packages should be complete within 3 months; 6 session packages should be complete within 6 months.

 

Do I have to track calories, carbs, fat, or macros?

I typically recommend tracking in some form (an app or picture journal), and many of my clients find it helpful when they are first getting started.  It helps them to better understand their bodies and which foods make them feel their best. 

Do I have to know how to cook?

Basic cooking skills are helpful, but not required.  I will teach and guide you along the way. 

Do you offer meal plans?

Yes!  A variety of nutritious and customizable meal plans are available for purchase.  Clients who purchase packages will receive customized meal plans at no charge.  Click here to learn more about my meal plan subscription service.

Do I have to buy certain foods, shakes, or supplements?  

Absolutely not!  I will work with your food preferences and budget.

Do you offer couples or family counseling?  

Yes!  Please contact me to discuss your needs. 

What if I am vegan or vegetarian?  

I offer counseling for vegans and vegetarians looking to optimize their diet, and also for people looking to transition into more of a plant based way of eating.  

What if I have tried every diet there is and failed?  

Please do not lose hope; many of my clients are in this situation when they first ask for help.  They are frustrated, discouraged, and tired.   I meet them where they are and we begin from there.  Everyone's situation will look different, but ultimately the key is to trust the process of combining nutrition education and behavior change and not give up.  I offer as much support as possible in between appointments.
