FAQs

How often do I come to see you?

Some issues can be addressed in one visit.  Examples are high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels.  Diagnoses such as diabetes or emotional eating benefit from regular appointments.

Do you accept my health insurance?

I am a Provider for most health plans, but the real question is whether you possess coverage for MNT (Medical Nutrition Therapy).   Your plan may or may not cover your diagnosis. For example, Medicare only covers Diabetes and Non-Dialysis Kidney Disease. You can verify your health benefits for MNT prior to our appointment.

How are you different from Weight Watchers?

As a Nutritionist who embraces Mindful Eating (based on science which shows that diets and restrictive eating result in eventual weight regain) you will not be required to count calories, points or weigh food. You will learn to identify and be present with all of your emotions.  We will create a "Toolbox" of activites to engage in that are appropriate when physical hunger is absent.
