I look forward to helping you...
When eating gets confusing
Its easy to understand that nutrition is the cornerstone of good health. We are what we eat after all! You may have been told that changing the way you eat could improve your health. That's where it can get confusing. Friends, neighbors and the media all have different opinions as to what and how to eat for the best health. Making sense of all the information and figuring out how to make changes that work for you can be a big task. I can help you sort through the information and help guide you in making changes to improve your nutrition and your health.
What to expect from counseling
Your first appointment will likely last 1.5 hours. Follow-up appointments usually last 1 hour or less, depending on your needs. We will be discussing your health history, your goals and how you want me to help you. I will evaluate and assess how to approach your specific nutrition and health concerns. Together we will identify how to get started with your change process and together we will learn from your challenges and set-backs and celebrate your successes! The process of change is a journey over a period of time which frequently resembles three steps forward and two steps back. Expect assignments to work on (usually the fork and knife kind, not the paper and pencil kind!), and communication with your doctor and/or counselors. Your success will be worth each moment of effort as you enjoy improved health and increased empowerment!
Cost and Insurance Coverage
Because healthful eating is the foundation for disease prevention and wellness, most insurance plans will pay for nutrition counseling visits. Call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card to verify coverage and find out if you are responsible for a co-pay.
I am a credentialed provider with most major insurance companies including Medicare and VT Medicaid and I’ll take care of the billing for you.
If you do not have coverage or you choose to continue with counseling beyond the limit of your coverage, counseling visits are $37/fifteen minutes.
