What is Nutrition Counseling?

Nutrition counseling a process of change designed to build long term strategies that support your nutrition and wellness goals. My role is to help you:

  • Assess how ready you are to make changes.
  • Identify your WHY for wanting to make a change.
  • Explore your history by examining what you’ve done in the past that has or hasn’t worked.
  • Uncover obstacles preventing you from making changes.
  • Break your big goals into small, measurable, realistic steps.
  • Provide suggestions and solutions based on my knowledge of nutrition as appropriate.
  • Offer validation, empathy, encouragement and accountability.

This takes time and may not be a linear process.

The details
Get Started!

Sessions are conducted virtually at this time. I am licensed to work with clients in Connecticut and Minnesota.  

The cost of the Plant Forward Playbook is $1200. A payment plan of 3 monthly payments of $400 is available. I accept health savings account cards.

I am in-network with Aetna and Cigna insurance. Many plans have preventative nutrition visits that you can use to cover a portion of the cost of the Plant-Forward Playbook. Please call your insurance company to verify your plan. Ask about preventative nutrition counseling benefits.

I am currently offering a WELCOME 2024 SPECIAL waiving the cost of the program elements and charging only for the counseling sessions at $200 per session (which may be of no-cost to you if you are using your insurance benefits).

I like to have a quick call, usually about 15 minutes before you purchase the program. This is just to make sure we are a good fit and to answer any questions you may have.

I will collect some information from you including payment information, insurance information if you are using benefits and privacy/HIPAA forms. 

As soon as payment and paperwork is cleared, you are enrolled in the Plant-Forward Playbook! At this point, you receive an intake form where you tell me all about your food likes and dislikes, shopping habits and health history as it relates to nutrition.

We get you set up with Practice Better, the tool we use for our sessions and messaging and tracking in between sessions. 

The first module “Plant Forward Nutrition 101” unlocks and you schedule your initial session with me!

Counseling Sessions Only Option

You are not required to purchase a package to work with me. I offer session-only support for both insurance and self pay options ($200 for 60 minute session for self pay).
