Why should I work with you?
I understand there are a lot of choices when it comes to nutrition, health, and wellness counseling and I appreciate you visiting my website. There are several reasons why you should work with me. I am 100% here for YOU! I am here to help you reach YOUR goals (not what my goals would be for you), in your time. When you speak, I really “hear” you and understand your situation, feelings, and struggles. Making changes in your lifestyle or nutrition therapy is not always an easy task but I am here to help you find what works for you and to give you support and guidance. You are trusting me with your health and your time and that’s not a commitment that I take lightly.
Secondly, I am a Registered Dietitian.
What’s the difference between a Registered Dietitian and a nutritionist or health coach?
A Registered Dietitian (RD) or Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) is someone who is an expert in the field of food and nutrition. To become a Dietitian you must receive a bachelor’s degree from an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics approved program, complete an accredited approved internship, pass the Commission on Dietetic’s Registration exam, and maintain professional continuing education requirements.
Nutritionists, health coaches, and wellness coaches may or may not have any formal training. There are no regulations or certifications around the word “nutritionist.” In addition, health and wellness coaches are not overseen by a regulatory body so their scope of practice is not defined and they do not have any licensing requirements.
It’s important that you find someone that you can work well together with and that will support you and your goals.
What methods of payment do you accept? Do you accept insurance?
I accept credit cards as well as cash and checks (if consults are completed in person). Credit cards are processed through Square. Clients may choose to utilize their Health Savings Accounts (HSA) or Flexible Savings Accounts (FSA) to cover the costs of the program (just make sure you check the requirements of your plan).
Unfortunately, I am unable to accept insurance at this time. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. I am able to provide a SuperBill to submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement upon request as long as I have received a doctor’s referral.
Where are you located?
I work out of my home in White Lake, MI. All sessions are completed virtually (by phone unless prior arrangements have been made).
What are your hours?
My office hours are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9am-4pm EST. I am available outside of office hours by appointment only.
What is the best way to contact you?
The best way to contact me is to e-mail me using my Contact Form. If you e-mail me outside of office hours I will do my best to reply to you with 24-48 hours.
