frequency of appointments Nutrition counseling provides emotional support and concrete, achievable steps for staying on track as you adopt sustainable change. The frequency of your visits depends upon nutrition status and health goals. It is common to meet more often in the beginning and then at greater intervals as time goes by. Real and sustainable change takes time...
initial consult I will ask about your current lifestyle, medications, supplements, health history, food history, etc. We'll discuss goals -- what you hope to gain from nutritional counseling -- and you will leave with 2-3 action steps. Plus you get homework! I will ask you fill out a 3-5 day food diary to better assess your current macronutrient and micronutrient intake before we meet next.

THERE WILL BE A $25.00 CHARGE FOR ALL RETURNED CHECKS & phone appointments are paid by card.
