Frequently Asked Questions

How many appointments will I need?2017-11-03T16:26:32-06:00

This varies depending on a number of factors. Success usually requires more than one visit. Some clients have met their goals in a few visits. Others with more complex situations have appointments a couple of times per month for a year or more.

What happens in the first visit?2017-11-03T16:27:13-06:00

The first visit is a comprehensive assessment. The goal of the first visit is to understand your situation and needs, and develop a path forward. Future visits will be based on that path and adjusted as needed along the way to help you reach your goals.

Do I have to keep a food log?2017-11-03T16:27:56-06:00

Food logs can help us more completely understand your situation and can help solidify behavior change. But if keeping a food log is stressful for you, you do not have to keep one. We will work together in a way that makes sense for you.

Do you accept medical insurance?2017-11-03T16:28:38-06:00

Not yet. We’re in the process of contracting as an in network provider with a few insurance companies, so check back. We can give you a superbill for you to submit directly to your insurance or medical reimbursement account. We also accept HSA cards for payment.

What are nutrigenetics and nutrigenomics?2017-11-03T16:29:20-06:00

“Nutrigenetics” is the science of the effect of genetics on dietary response. “Nutrigenomics” is the science of the role of nutrients in gene expression. In other words, genes may affect a particular dietary response that as a result may then need to be adjusted with nutrition – OR – nutrition may need to be adjusted to affect how a gene is expressed.

What’s the difference between a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and a nutritionist?2017-11-03T16:30:37-06:00

A RDN has completed at minimum a Bachelor’s Degree (many, like Lauren, have Master’s Degrees) that meets specific, rigorous coursework requirements; 1200 hours of supervised professional practice; a rigorous registration exam; and 75 hours of continuing education to recertify every 5 years. A “nutritionist” is a non-specific term. Anyone with any kind of training, or even no training at all, can call themselves a nutritionist.

Do you do testing?2017-11-03T16:33:03-06:00

For standard blood work, we always try to work with your medical provider first. We can recommend blood work from an online service, but the cost will be out of pocket for you. For specialty testing such as nutrigenetics/nutrigenomics and food intolerance testing, we have companies and tests that we recommend.
