How much will it cost?
A 1-hour initial consultation is $150, and 30-minute follow-up appointments are $75. In Pennsylvania, many healthcare plans cover Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) with no out-of-pocket costs, if your deductible has been met. However, every individual insurance plan varies greatly, so please check with your individual plan on coverage specifics.

What is Intuitive Eating?
Intuitive Eating is an evidenced-based, mind-body health approach, comprised of 10 Principles and created by two dietitians, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in 1995. It is a weight-neutral model with a validated assessment scale and over 90 studies to date (Tribole 2017). Essentially, Intuitive Eating is a personal process of honoring health by listening and responding to the direct messages of the body in order to meet your physical and psychological needs.

Can you just tell me what to eat?
This is a trick question. Of course I can just tell you what to eat, but that would be boring and essentially another form of a diet. I would rather spend our time together working on ways to get you enjoying the foods you love in ways that feel good and in line with your health goals. I can provide meal ideas and recipes to support these goals, but I rarely take pleasure in telling anyone exactly what to eat!
