What’s the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist?
A nutritionist may or may not be a Registered Dietitian, but is typically an individual that has an interest in nutrition. He or she may or may not have a degree in nutrition, and has not obtained the credentials RD. He or she is not state licensed to practice in the field of nutrition, and is not legally supposed to provide medical nutrition or diet therapy or counseling to individuals or groups. Dietitians may call themselves nutritionists, but nutritionists may not call themselves dietitians. When hiring a nutrition professional- ask about their credentials!
Where do you meet your clients?
I closed my regular office since the pandemic and am seeing clients online only. I do provide presentations virtually or in-person, including cooking demos and webinars.
Do you take health insurance?
I do not take insurance but do accept HSA or flex spending cards for payment. My prices are competitive. A one-hour initial consult is $175.00, which includes a one-hour online visit, nutrition handouts and education materials, and a progress note sent to your healthcare provider.
What methods of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, check or credit card. HSA or flex spending cards may also be used. Payment is due at the time of service. Cancellation of an appointment is expected prior to 24 hours or you will be charged for 100% of the visit. Your visit will be rebooked and you will not be charged twice.
