Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect working with a Dietitian?
All clients will receive a 1 hour initial assessment where we review your medical/nutritional history, get to know one another, and set treatment goals. From there I recommend to start with weekly follow ups where we discuss your individualized nutrition recommendations, behavior modification techniques, nutrition education, meal planning etc! Session content will change from week to week depending on the current goals we are working on. Expect to set small weekly goals together that will build into sustainable lifestyle changes!
Who could benefit from nutrition counseling?
Anyone looking to make sustainable changes to their diet while prioritizing a healthy relationship with food!
Nutrition counseling can help those who struggle with disordered eating, chronic dieting, GI disturbances, altered lab values, weight fluctuations, and negative body image.
Dietitian VS Nutritionist
Registered Dietitians are healthcare providers who must earn a Bachelors or Masters degree in nutrition from an accredited program, complete a 1200 hour supervised internship, pass a national board exam, and upkeep continuing education credits. The title of Registered Dietitian is protected nationally, and many states require this credential to provide individualized nutrition care for the treatment of health conditions.
Nutritionist is not a regulated title so there are no schooling or practice requirements for someone to call themselves a nutritionist.
Do you accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance at this time. To make our services as accessible as possible, we offer competitive private pay rates and can discuss individualized financial plans on a case-by-case basis.
