What is the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist?
A Registered Dietitian (also called a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) is a professional who has a Bachelor’s (and often Master’s) degree in the field, undergone clinical training, passed a national examination, and meets continuing education requirements. Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist regardless of education or training!
Where will the counseling take place?
I offer virtual counseling or home visits for local clients*. My goal is to make this as convenient for you as possible so all of our sessions can be done from the comfort of your home. *Local clients include residents of Maplewood, South Orange, Millburn, Short Hills, Summit, Livingston, West Orange, or surrounding areas in northern New Jersey.
Do you take insurance?
I do not take insurance at this time. I can provide you with a receipt that you can submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.
What is the cancellation policy?
Appointments must be cancelled 24 hours in advance or a $50 no-show fee will be charged.
What can I expect in a session?
In essence, we discuss where you are now, where you want to be, and how to get you there. We will identify your goals and create an individualized plan to help you achieve them. Each session is different and catered to the individual. We could discuss recipes and grocery shopping strategies, nutrition therapy for medical conditions, symptom management, nutrient deficiencies, or body image…whatever it is that is relevant to YOU.
Prior to the session you will receive a brief questionnaire to provide some background information.
After our session together I will provide you with a written summary of your goals and care plan along with any relevant resources (recipes, referrals, helpful websites, etc!)
Can we communicate between sessions?
Between sessions you get unlimited text/email support. Whether you need clarification, encouragement, accountability, or empathy. You can tell me how you’re struggling or share your progress, either way I’d love to hear from you.
