Frequently Asked Questions

How coaching works!

What do we go over in nutrition coaching?

As your nutrition coach, we’ll…address your consistency killers, work to transform habits, find out what’s really triggering your hunger, address manipulating mindsets that sabotage your good intentions, and implement fundamentals that apply to all seasons of life to empower you to get in charge of and around your food.

What is your training?

I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and in good standing with the Commission on Dietetic Registration. I have a history working in private practice and in a clinical setting. Behaviorism-focused coaching is my primary focus and specialty.

What if I don't get results?

The very nature of my coaching is to go beyond bandaid “fixes” and get to the root of the problem keeping you from being successful. The majority of the people I work with have come to me as serial dieters looking for a way out. While everyone’s experience is slightly different (due to difference in plan needs), and because I legally cannot guarantee anything as a health professional…if you are open with your struggles and bring your concerns and patterns to me, you greatly enhance your chance for results. 🙂

What does HAES mean?

Health at Every Size® principles help us advance social justice, create an inclusive and respectful community, and support people of all sizes in finding compassionate ways to take care of themselves. The Health at Every Size paradigm includes the following basic components:

 

Respect

  • Celebrates body diversity;
  • Honors differences in size, age, race, ethnicity, gender, dis/ability, sexual orientation, religion, class, and other human attributes.

Critical Awareness

  • Challenges scientific and cultural assumptions;
  • Values body knowledge and people’s lived experiences.

Compassionate Self-care

  • Finding the joy in moving one’s body and being physically active;
  • Eating in a flexible and attuned manner that values pleasure and honors internal cues of hunger, satiety, and appetite, while respecting the social conditions that frame eating options.
How are the meetings structured?

We’ll start with a 45-60 minute initial consult, where we will go over your nutrition and health history, daily intake patterns, your biggest struggles, and goals. From there, we will create a some starting action steps to get you going ASAP and I’ll work on your personal meal plan (delivered within 24 hrs).

Check-ins are every other week, 20-30 minutes. During check-ins, we will go over the previous 2 week wins, challenges, and game plan for the upcoming 2 weeks.

How much does NUTRITION COACHING COST?

– 2022 Pricing & Coaching Structure

Pricing:

Option 1: 10 sessions, ~1 quarter year, $350

Option 2: 15 sessions, ~half year, $475

Option 3: 25 sessions, 1 year, $765

– Sessions/check-ins will be every other week, offered Wednesdays and Thursdays.

– You must cancel appointment at a minimum of 24 hours in advance. If advanced notice is not provided, you will be charged one session. This is only because I pay for child-care and need to provide notice if not needed.

– To align with my belief that price shouldn’t be a barrier to quality healthcare, I provide 2-3 pro-bono/sliding scale spots at one time in my client load. This is done through an application process (link coming soon) and there may be a waiting list. If you would like to donate to cover part of someone’s nutrition counseling, please use this link (link coming soon).

 

Other notes:

– I am able to take on 10-15 people per week at this time, depending on current client load, there may be a waiting period. If there is a waiting period, I will update this area with the waiting list.

do YOU GIVE MEAL PLANS?

Meal plans are notorious for not working long-term for a variety of reasons. There is some nuance to the term, and while I won’t be giving you a cookie-cutter meal plan, I will work with you to create a realistic meal plan for your lifestyle and goals. I’ll also teach you how to meal plan for yourself!
