Individual Nutrition Counseling
Initial Nutrition Evaluation and Assessment
This is an opportunity for you and I to meet so I can learn more about you and gain a better understanding of what you would like to change about your relationship with food. It is a thorough evaluation of past and present eating behaviors, as well as your attitudes and beliefs about your food choices, weight, exercise patterns and appearance. After this meeting, I will be able to provide you with some direction of what I think will be necessary for your recovery in terms of frequency and duration of visits. I will also, with your guidance and comfort level, develop a treatment plan that works best for you and your situation.
Follow-Up Nutrition Counseling Sessions
These sessions are maintained either weekly, every other week, or monthly and are designed to promote movement toward a better relationship with food, your weight and physical activity. Here, we will begin the process of challenging the distorted beliefs about food that force you to make irrational decisions that affect your overall health and mental well-being.
Weight checks are designed for those who are in the process of terminating regular treatment, but require reassurance or accountability of weight stabilization in a healthy weight range. They may also be utilized by clients who are still working on recovery, but do not have time on any specific week to come into the office for a full session, but still need documentation of weight status.
I do offer consultations to clients who are not physically able to make it in to the office for a face-to-face visit, due to inclement weather, travel plans or vacations, going away to college or making a move. I am also available for phone/Skype sessions to those who wish to utilize my services but do not live in the area.
