  • Are you struggling to find family-friendly nutrition strategies?

  • Do you want to help your child establish a healthy relationship with food?

  • Are you navigating picky eating and want to help your child eat better?

  • Has pregnancy or a new baby changed your priorities and brought challenges to healthy eating?

 

You’re not alone. Feeding your family consistently healthy choices can be overwhelming.

 

Questions about nutrition and health often lead to confusing and complicated rules about food, restrictive eating and mealtime battles. Busy schedules and picky eaters make feeding your family overly complex.

I focus on a collaborative relationship to achieve sustainable change.

Nutritional Counseling is Covered by Many Insurance Companies

Many health insurance plans provide coverage for nutrition counseling by a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN). A physician referral may be required.

I offer convenient online appointment scheduling and a comprehensive electronic health platform.  From secure online paperwork to messaging and document sharing, I utilize technology to save you time.

Insurances accepted include Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare.  For other insurance plans, I will provide you with a detailed receipt that you can submit for insurance reimbursement. 

 

Virtual Nutrition Counseling

I also offer HIPAA-compliant, virtual nutrition services through a powerful and feature rich, technology partner. Virtual visits services allow you to have regular consultations without leaving your home or office. All you need is a computer, phone or tablet. Virtual visits are not typically covered by insurance.

 
The barriers of hectic family schedules no longer keep you from getting regular support and ensuring the best health for you and your family.

Nutrition Counseling Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is Nutrition Counseling?

Nervous about seeing a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN)? Don’t be! A good nutrition consultation isn't like a lecture about what you should be doing, and you won’t feel as though you’re being scolded or judged on your eating habits, either. Rather, you'll experience a caring and compassionate relationship with careful listening to understand where you are right now in terms of your lifestyle and diet, and a collaborative approach to help you achieve your goals. 

 

Does Insurance Cover Nutrition Counseling?

Nutrition counseling (medical nutrition therapy) is a covered benefit for many insurance plans. Coverage does vary and a physician referral may be necessary. Currently, I’m an in-network provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare insurances. During out complimentary discovery call, I will answer questions and can assist with verifying coverage.
