Frequently Asked Questions
In order to see true, long-lasting improvements in your eating pattern and health, consistent follow-up and accountability are absolutely essential. To ensure that my clients see the best possible results, I do not offer stand-alone initial consultations.
Currently I am unable to accept insurance. However, after a session has been completed I can provide you with a superbill which you can submit to your insurance company to see if they will reimburse you in part or in full for our sessions. Please check with your insurance company to see if they will reimburse you for seeing a dietitian via telehealth. I am also able to accept HSA/FSA payments.
I use a secure, HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform integrated into the client portal of my electronic health record system. During the telehealth visit, it will be helpful to minimize any nearby distractions or noise. Please also avoid driving during the telehealth visit.
This depends on frequently changing state licensing and telehealth laws. At the moment, I am able to offer telehealth services to individuals located in the following states:
Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Oregon, Texas, Washington, Vermont, and Virginia.
Please note that in some states, I am only able to provide certain types of services. If you are interested in working together, please schedule a complimentary introductory call here and we can discuss your needs.
I do not provide meals plans alone, and do not focus on providing set meal plans in my practice. Instead, I prefer to teach people how to plan their own meals and modify what they are already eating, or find new dishes and products to include in their diet.
While I specialize in healthful vegan diets, I am also happy to help individuals who are not vegan find ways to reduce their consumption of animal-based foods and eat more plants. My recommendations do not include any animal-based foods. I can also help with the transition into a vegan diet if that is a goal of yours.
When seeing a dietitian, you can be confident that they are providing you with evidence-based, accurate nutrition information. This is because dietitians are the leading food and nutrition experts, with the most education and training in nutrition compared to nutritionists or other health professionals.
We combine our knowledge of nutrient requirements with counseling skills to help you successfully implement changes in your eating habits. We also provide accountability and work together with you to set realistic goals that fit into your lifestyle. Additionally, dietitians are qualified to provide specific food and nutrition recommendations for diagnosed health conditions (also known as Medical Nutrition Therapy).
