Are you sick of dieting and ready to bring the joy back to food?
Then you are in the right place! I offer nutrition counseling based in Intuitive Eating, so that you can break free from diet culture.
Let’s reflect – have diets helped you in the past? Or have they just robbed you of – self confidence, trust in your body, time, energy, money – and so much more?
We know that doing diet after diet affects our self-confidence and robs us of valuable time and energy.
Diets force you to rigidly restrict what you eat, rather than allowing you to listen to your body’s natural signals of hunger and satiety. These strict rules often distract you from the more important goal of simply nourishing your body, which is why diets are rarely sustainable in the long term.
For most of us, diets have done more harm than good – BUT with Intuitive Eating as a guide, you can finally experience food in a much more enjoyable way.
Intuitive Eating is not just about eating when you’re hungry and stopping when you’re full. It is SO MUCH MORE than that – all of which we will discuss together.
Hi, I’m Stephanie
As a fellow human living in the diet culture-focused world
I get it…
You need a safe and supportive space to chat about your successes and struggles with all things related to food and movement. Join me virtually in a relaxed and comfortable environment (with a few visits from my dog, Norman!), where we will have open conversations and discuss how to reach your personal goals.
You will be able to focus more on behavioral changes, rather than numbers, and I will always meet you where you are in your individual journey towards intuitive eating and living.
What my clients are saying
“I had been searching for a dietitian to work with, but was always hesitant to reach out as I knew what was in my future based on past experiences: restrictions, dieting, and inevitably falling off the wagon.
I knew that I was tired of the cycle, but did not know how to get out of it. So when I came across Stephanie’s website and read about this idea of Intuitive Eating, I knew that it was exactly what I was looking for – a way to disassociate myself from diet culture and become more in tune with my body.
Stephanie is truly passionate about what she does and I always walk away from our sessions feeling incredibly positive that this is the right path for me.”
Initial Nutrition Counseling Session
During this initial session, nutrition is not the only thing we will talk about! First of all, I want to learn about you – your personality, your nutrition journey so far, and anything else you want to share. You will virtually receive a set of intake forms – to get the nitty gritty stuff out of the way – so we can dive deep in our first session together.
Follow Up Nutrition Counseling Session
During these follow up sessions, we will pick up from where we left off. We will check in with each other, see how the week went, and if anything popped up that you want to chat about. Sometimes I recommend that you keep a list of anything that comes up during the week that you want to discuss, so we don’t forget to talk about it.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of working with an anti-diet dietitian?
We will focus on internal changes rather than external – meaning exploring why we gravitate toward certain foods or have certain thoughts around foods and how we can make mental and physical health related changes. We help you learn how to trust your body and acknowledge and appreciate internal hunger and fullness cues.We show you how to ditch the diet mentality and improve your relationship with ALL foods.We provide support while you regain power over food and your food choices, rather than letting food and certain nutrition information dictate what you eat.We talk about the ways to start appreciating and respecting your here and now body. Most importantly, we bring the JOY back to eating
Do you offer packages?
I do not offer counseling packages – all sessions are scheduled weekly or biweekly – depending on your preference. I recommend meeting on a weekly basis at first, so we get to know each other and come up with actionable goals to work on.
Where are sessions held?
All sessions are virtual (via Zoom) and are one-on-one
Do you accept insurance?
I do not accept insurance, but am happy to provide you with a Superbill to submit to your insurance company for potential out of network benefits
Here are the steps to take to inquire about out-of-network benefits:
Call the number on the back of your card and ask the following question to verify reimbursement before booking your first appointment: “I am interested in seeing an out-of-network registered dietitian. Does my plan provide reimbursement for out-of-network providers? (codes 97802 and 97803)”
If yes, follow-up with the following questions:
How many sessions does my plan cover, and how long can the sessions be?
What is my deductible, and has it been met?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Do I need pre-authorization from my insurance company or PCP?
Do I have a copay for out of network nutrition counseling?
**Record the representative’s name and a reference # when checking your benefits. This information will be necessary if you ever need to dispute a rejected claim
If you confirmed you can submit for out-of-network benefits, make sure to ask your insurance company exactly how/where to submit your Superbill for reimbursement and when to expect to be reimbursed.
**Please note: If you are planning on receiving out-of-network reimbursement for medical nutrition therapy, you are responsible for payment at the time of your service. As the out-of-network provider (registered dietitian nutritionist), I will provide you with a Superbill, which you will submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement.
What payment types do you accept?
I accept payments via Credit Card or Venmo
