What is Nutritional Counseling?

Nutrition counseling is individual counseling designed to assess an individual’s dietary dietary intake and identify areas where change is needed. This can be used for general health or a diagnosed condition. Through this process, the counselor will provide information, educational materials, and recommended changes. This process includes medical nutritional therapy (MNT) and is often reimbursed through insurance either directly or via a superbill.

Free Focus Session -15-minute free phone consultation

This is the first step in working together. Consider this a mini-private consult. This allows us time to chat, understand your goals, specific health challenges, and where you need to focus. You will learn more about my approach to nutrition and wellness and from there we can determine the appropriate next steps.










Counseling Initial Consultation - 75-minutes

This is where we begin your health journey. You will be asked to fill out paperwork that will capture your health history, symptoms, lifestyle, and dietary intake. This paperwork will need to be completed prior to the meeting, and any labs uploaded to our portal, to allow time for review. During the initial intake, we will discuss your goals, health, lifestyle, and individual concerns. This will be followed by a nutrition-focused physical exam and a review of your dietary intake. Each session is individualized and the information provided will cater to your needs. Together we will discuss and design a plan which works with your lifestyle and is achievable. The path towards wellness doesn’t happen overnight and often requires more than one session. It is a process as clients work through dietary and lifestyle changes to achieve their goals. Let us help you be successful in achieving your goals.

Counseling Follow-Up Consultations - 30 to 45 minutes

Follow-up sessions are offered every 2-4 weeks after the initial consultation meeting and are typically 30-45 minutes in length. In these meetings, we will review your successes, discuss any challenges, and devise modifications as necessary to your initial individualized plan. These modifications may be to address roadblocks or maybe the incorporations of new interventions as you’ve successfully completed an original goal. The longer, “enhanced” follow-up session of 45 minutes is designed for those clients who need more support in a particular area or for those who need a more detailed review of progress trends and substantial goal revisions.

Nutritionally Related Testing - Based on the appointment and individual

Based on the appointment and individual, sometimes additional testing is warranted to help determine the root cause of dysfunction. This may include stool testing, food sensitivity testing, organic acid testing, micronutrient testing, and salivary testing.
