Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:  Do you accept insurance?
A:  No, I do not accept insurance.

Q:  What is the difference between a nutritionist and dietitian?
A:  A "nutritionist" is an un-defined term and is used by a variety of people.  Some have little nutrition education or are self-taught and some have advanced degrees in nutrition - some are very knowledgeable about nutrition.   A "dietitian" is a regulated term, as one must have either a Bachelor's or Master's degree in nutrition, complete a dietetic internship (at least 900 hours of clinical nutrition, community and food service) and pass the Registered Dietitian exam.  While "dietitians" are often thought of as having a very conventional nutrition perspective, I assure you that my background has made me knowledgeable in both alternative and conventional nutrition protocols.

Q:  How many nutrition counseling sessions do you recommend to achieve my goals?
A:  While each individual is different and may need different treatment times, I recommend planning on at least two to three meetings with a nutritionist over the span of a couple of months.  Like anything, it is impossible to learn everything you need to know in one day.  Additionally, changing the state of your health takes time and results are not achieved overnight.

Q:  I would love to see a nutritionist but I do not make much money right now.  Do you see any clients with financial hardships?
A: Yes, I reserve a few spaces for people who are unable to pay the full amount.  Please email me explaining your circumstances and we will try to arrange a payment amount that will work for you.
