Honest Nutrition Education

When nutrition education is focused on improving your health and hormones, not solely on losing weight, you have the space to build solutions that work long-term, not only while you’re “on the diet”.

N

Accountability With Implementing Food Experiences And Habits

Whether you need help meal planning, shopping, cooking, or just knowing what to eat, I will walk beside you and offer accountability in compassionate ways. If disordered eating is part of your experience, you’ll get guidance with this also.

Ways to Work With Me

Individual Nutrition Counseling

inside the heal & Nourish program or ala carte

Working with a dietitian one-on-one is an effective way of improving your food habits and relationship with food.

We’ll explore your relationship with food, your health goals, and what is keeping you stuck. Then we’ll work toward lasting solutions based in self-care, not self-control. 

We’ll make a plan specifically for you, but rooted in a non-diet, healing approach.  We’ll take into account your culture, time availability, food preferences, and physical and mental health.

How It Works

Virtual nutrition counseling in Austin, Texas

1. Initial Assessment

We’ll start with a 75-minute deep dive assessment. At this appointment, we’ll explore your health and labwork, your food and exercise habits, your past with food, weight, and body image, and likely a lot more! My goal is to understand you and your relationship with food as much as I can so I can be an effective guide.  We’ll end with a shared vision for the work we’re doing together and with the peace of mind that you’re working toward nutrition solutions you can live with. This is much more than nutrition education. This is nutrition counseling.

You can read more about pricing and package options here. 

You can get started now by setting up an initial appointment. If you’re unsure, you can email me or schedule a discovery call.

Dietitian services are conducted virtually from my Austin office via HIPAA-compliant telehealth software. 

2. Ongoing Sessions

If you’re coming to me to heal your relationship, I usually suggest a 6-month committment to start, touching base weekly or biweekly. I typically see people for 6 months – 1 year, sometimes longer. Real solutions take time and committment. But everyone is unique and some people just need a few sessions to get what they need.

During the initial assessment (or maybe at a discovery call) we’ll decide what cadance works for you. In between appointments, you’ll have meal and snack assignments, food and feelings journaling, and other means of deepening the work and staying accountable to yourself.

Follow up sessions will keep you accountable and actionable. We can explore habits, emotional eating, meal planning, Intuitive Eating, honoring hunger and fullness, feelings about your body and your health, and managing a chornic condition in our society. There’s a lot of stuff here sometimes!

We’ll keep having these sessions as long as you need them.

3. Tapering Off

It’s not a one-and-done type of deal. Once the core of the food and body work can come to a natural end, we’ll come up with a plan to teeter off of our work and for you to continue practicing your new tools on your own. Many clients find going down to once per month and then once per quarter feels really supportive.

I am out-of-network with insurance plans in Texas. I recognize that nutrition therapy can be costly. In addition to credit and debit cards, I accept HSA and FSA cards for my services and can provide you a superbill to send to your insurance company for reimbusement.
