Here are answers to the questions I get asked the most!
Q: Do you take insurance?
A: I am happy to provide you with a Superbill to submit to your insurance company. I do not bill insurance directly because I work with people all over the country, and the paperwork involved with that is prohibitive. Check with your insurance company so see if your policy covers nutrition counseling, and I will supply you with the appropriate paperwork.
Q: Do you have meal plans for sale?
A: Each person is unique, so each nutrition plan is unique. Your plan will be developed for you only, and take into consideration your lifestyle, likes and dislikes, health concerns, available time, and other factors. That is what makes personal counseling so powerful and effective.
Q: Can we do some sessions over the phone and some in person?
Q: Will you send my doctor updates from our sessions?
A: Yes, with your permission I can update your doctor on your plan and what we are doing to improve your health.
Q: Do you keep our sessions confidential?
A: Absolutely. I will only share what we discuss if you ask me to do so.
Q: What is the difference between a dietician and a nutritionist?
A: A Registered Dietician (RD) has completed a Bachelor’s degree and passed the exam by the American Dietetics Association. A Board Certified Nutritionist (CNS) has a minimum of a Masters degree in nutrition from a fully accredited University and has passed the Board exam created by the American College of Nutrition. Both have to complete an internship before getting their certification.
Q: I”ve tried a lot of diets in the past, and none of them worked. How do I know this one will work?
A: I use evidence-based nutrition to formulate your plan, and tailor it to your specific personal situation. We will find solutions to what is not working and keep tweaking it until you get the results you want. If you are willing to try and put the recommendations into practice, you will make progress.
