Nutrition counseling can transform your relationship with food and improve your health. It is a great way to explore the eating behaviors and nutrition beliefs that have developed over the course of your life. I believe in a non-diet approach to nutrition counseling that focuses on making sustainable lifestyle changes. Together we will identify targets for behavior change, break down the barriers that are standing in the way and establish objectives that will help you achieve your health and wellness goals. During your nutrition counseling sessions, I will provide nutrition education and help you gain insight into the behavioral and emotional aspects of eating.
Nutrition Counseling sessions can be in-person or over the phone if you are located in the state of Missouri.

The initial 60 minute visit consists of obtaining important information such as medical history, weight and diet history, food preferences and eating and exercise habits. An individualized meal plan will be created so you can begin working toward your nutrition goals.
Follow-up visits are highly recommended for evaluating progress, problem-solving, and revising your goals. Follow-up visits are typically 30 or 50 minutes long. The frequency and duration of these visits will vary depending on the individual and his or her needs.
I encourage individuals to fill out the new client paperwork ahead of time so the majority of the first appointment can be spent discussing goals and a plan of action. Please bring all of the documents listed on the New Client Checklist to your first appointment. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
