What to expect:
- At our first meeting (60-90 minutes) there will be a lot of information gathering. In order for me to best help you I need to get to know you and the details about your eating that you are struggling with. Everyone is different and your plan will be tailored to your needs.
- Once we pinpoint specific areas that you would like to change, we will come up with the necessary actionable steps you will take to make those changes happen. I will offer direction and advice but ultimately the decision about what to change will be yours.
- You will work on your goals between visits and we will meet again in about 2 weeks or when you decide will be most helpful.
- Follow-up visits are 30-60 minutes. Here we will discuss how you are doing with your changes. If all is going well, then great! The plan will be to maintain them and build additional goals as we go along, if necessary. If you are finding it difficult to stick with your plan, we will talk about the reasons for this and brainstorm alternatives that will work.
If you would like to schedule a nutrition consultation with me, I have flexible office hours at Be the Change Nutrition in The Meadows office park in North Kingstown.
Many health insurance plans will cover visits with a Registered Dietitian. I am an in-network provider with: Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Aetna and Tufts. Individual plans vary so please call the phone number on your card to find out the number of visits you are allowed, if there is a co-pay and if your medical diagnosis is covered.
I also offer a self-pay option consisting of an initial consultation (approximately 90 minutes) plus two follow-up visits (30 minutes each) for $225. Additional follow-up visits are $50 per session.
