Nutrition Counseling

We offer both in-office and telehealth nutrition counseling.
Our virtual visits are done via our HIPAA compliant video chat.

Our nutrition counseling sessions will be productive, yet relaxed. We want our clients to feel like they are having a conversation with a friend – a sharing of concerns and goals. Together we will come up with a realistic plan of action, setting attainable nutrition, exercise and behavioral goals at each visit. Recommendations are always individualized to the clients food preferences and lifestyle. The relaxed tone of the consult will both empower and motivate you to establish new habits, allowing you to define and attain success!

It is the patient’s responsibility to verify insurance coverage. Prior to your nutrition counseling appointment, call the member services number listed in the back of your health insurance card. Ask the following questions:

  • My diagnosis/ reason for visit is: ____________. Will this be covered?
  • Is a referral required?
  • Is there a co-payment?
  • Is there a deductible?
  • How many visits are covered and over what time frame?

What to Expect From an Nutrition Counseling Visit:

  • Review your medical history, weight history, current eating habits & exercise.
  • Set mutually defined goals for nutrition, exercise & behavior change.
  • Educate you on healthy foods choices, food labels, behavioral changes as needed.
  • Provide individualized solutions—focused nutrition plan, shopping lists, and other appropriate handouts.
  • Educate you on diabetes self management, including blood sugar testing, medications and preventative behaviors to help reduce the risk of complications & empower you to take control of this disease.

Follow up sessions are greatly encouraged for most clients, as accountability is an important part of behavior change. The frequency of follow up visits varies per client and will be discussed during the visit.
