Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

How many sessions should I expect to attend?

Depends on your individual goals.  Those interested in identifying food sensitivities should plan on two to three sessions, while those interested in weight loss will likely need ongoing sessions to address individual barriers.  The Wired For Joy classes last four weeks and the Solution for Weight is eight weeks long.  The Shapedown program is eight weeks long.

Why is the Initial Session 75 minutes long?

The initial session is a time for me to become familiar with your issues and goals.  This process requires additional time to develop an individual nutrition care plan. Follow up sessions are fifty minutes.

How do e-mail sessions work?

E-mailing is a great way for you to get your nutrition related questions answered by a reliable source.  It is helpful for those who do not what or need to commit to a full session.  Simply This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Do you offer consultations over the phone?

Yes.  Telephone consults can be scheduled and conducted just like an in office session.  Unfortunately insurance does not pay for this kind of service.

Do you offer home visits?

I do provide home visits such as pantry review, menu planning, label reading and cooking ideas as needed.

Do you accept insurance?

Yes, I accept Aetna, Rocky Mountain Health Plans, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Colorado,  American Specialty Health, Humana, United Health Care, Premera Blue Cross, Great-West Healthcare, Health Allies, Reserve National and Medical Resource.  I ask that you contact your insurance provider for coverage details prior to making an appointment.

Please be aware that many issues are not covered (for example weight loss), while other related conditions might be (i.e. diabetes, high cholesterol, IBS) so it is important that you ask what conditions are covered under your plan.

Another important question to ask:  If and how many sessions with RD’s are allowed in a calendar year, the percentage of visit covered, whether your deductible has been meet, and whether a referral from a physician is needed.

Please also note that any session fees rejected by the insurance company or deductibles not yet meet will be the responsibility of the client.
