What to Expect when Working with an Anti-Diet Dietitian - FAQs

What is nutrition counseling?

A one-on-one session with a Registered Dietitian to work toward your personal nutrition goals. We will work together to set realistic and achievable goals - I will always meet you where you are at. Feel free to schedule a free 15 minute discovery call to see if we would make a good fit!

What are some things we will discuss?

Nutrition is not the only thing we will talk about! First of all, I want to learn about you - your personality, your nutrition journey so far, and anything else you want to share. There are so many aspects of life that can impact our success to reach our nutrition goals. We will definitely talk about food - your relationship with food, preferences, allergies, favorite meals and snacks, grocery shopping, and cooking. We will also touch on medical history, exercise habits, body image, the diet industry and diet culture, sleep habits, and more. Everyone's nutrition journey looks different. Please know there will be many ups and downs along the way, but I will be here to help! More questions - feel free to reach out!

How often will we work together?

I typically recommend that we see each other at least every other week while we are actively working together. This way, we will stay up to date on goals and other things we are working on. Scheduling questions? Send me an email or give me a call!

On the fence about getting started?

That is ok!! I cannot emphasize that enough! It is scary, nerve wracking, and takes a lot of guts to try something new, so I applaud you for all the work you have done this far. Try out the quiz to see if you are ready to start your intuitive eating journey - I will be here for you regardless!

What are the benefits of working with an anti-diet dietitian?

We will focus on internal changes rather than external - meaning exploring why we gravitate toward certain foods or have certain thoughts around foods and how we can make mental and physical health related changes⁠.⠀ We help you learn how to trust your body and acknowledge and appreciate internal hunger and fullness cues⁠.⠀ We show you how to ditch the diet mentality and improve your relationship with ALL foods⁠. We provide support while you regain power over food and your food choices, rather than letting food and certain nutrition information dictate what you eat⁠.⠀ We talk about the ways to start appreciating and respecting your here and now body⁠. Most importantly, we bring the JOY back to eating!⁠⠀ Head to my blog to read about more topics and benefits of working with an anti-diet dietitian!

What forms of payment do you accept?

I currently accept payments via credit card or Venmo. Interested in scheduling a free discovery call? Click here!

Do you accept insurance?

I currently do not accept any insurance, but am happy to provide you with a superbill (the detailed receipt that I will provide you after your sessions) to submit for potential Out of Network Reimbursement. Here are the steps to take to inquire about out-of-network benefits: Call the number on the back of your card and ask the following question to verify reimbursement before booking your first appointment: "I am interested in seeing an out-of-network registered dietitian. Does my plan provide reimbursement for out-of-network providers? (codes 97802 and 97803)" If yes, follow-up with the following questions: How many sessions does my plan cover, and how long can the sessions be? What is my deductible, and has it been met? What is the coverage amount per therapy session? Do I need pre-authorization from my insurance company or PCP? Do I have a copay for out of network nutrition counseling? **Record the representative’s name and a reference # when checking your benefits. This information will be necessary if you ever need to dispute a rejected claim If you confirmed you can submit for out-of-network benefits, make sure to ask your insurance company exactly how/where to submit your Superbill for reimbursement and when to expect to be reimbursed. **Please note: If you are planning on receiving out-of-network reimbursement for medical nutrition therapy, you are responsible for payment at the time of your service. As the out-of-network provider (registered dietitian nutritionist), I will provide you with a Superbill, which you will submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. If you have any further questions (I is confusing!!) - please reach out to me!
