How much does it cost to work with you?
Cost will vary based on your needs and which package you purchase. Contact me to receive information on pricing.
Do you accept insurance?
I don’t take insurance but I can provide you with a superbill (medical receipt) upon request. If your insurance company reimburses for dietitian services, for example an Health Saving Account (HSA), you can submit the superbill to them and they will reimburse you directly. Please note: medicare does not accept superbills.
Are visits in person, over the phone, or video?
All of the above! I work with most of my clients virtually. We meet via a HIPPA-compliant video conference or phone call and communicate between sessions using email. You get the same high-quality coaching support without having to leave the comfort of your own home!
