Areas of Practice

 

Eating Disorders

$75 per hour

A dietitian trained in eating disorders is an essential component to an eating disorder treatment team. Nutrition therapy is not just nutrition education – it is your fears or assumptions about food challenged and presented in new ways. It is learning to manage food vs. the eating disorder controlling you. All foods fit, and I can help you find peace with food and enjoy life again.


Supermarket Outings

$75 per hour

A supermarket outing is beneficial for managing your food budget, tips on purchasing and storing foods, discovering new food choices and debunking label claims – some are useful, some are mere marketing. So that I can provide personalized suggestions, a consultation is required before scheduling a supermarket outing.


Food & Body Support Group

$15/member/monthly meeting

The Food and Body Group is for those looking to find freedom with food and respectfully care for their bodies. 

This group is for active clients only.



Intuitive Eating

$75 per hour

Intuitive Eating is an evidence-based approach to re-learn how to listen to the body’s cues to guide eating. It focuses on ten principles to let go of dieting and allow your body to settle at its natural weight. Satisfaction with eating is at the core of Intuitive Eating, with other principles including utilizing internal hunger and fullness cues to guide your eating, respecting your body, addressing emotional eating and more.


Speaking/
Programs

Fees vary, contact me about your needs
+ cost of food, if applicable

A variety of non-diet wellness programs are available for your business, school or organization, such as luncheon presentations, health fairs, cooking demonstrations and more. Contact me to discuss topic ideas.

I am passionate about teaching children how to have a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. I donate my time to schools to speak on enjoying food, respecting one’s body, and about eating disorders in an age-appropriate fashion. My donated time is limited so please contact me for availability.
 


Eating Disorder Support Groups

$15/member/meeting

Struggling with an eating disorder is an isolating experience, and meeting with others in the same struggle fosters hope and connection. I am actively seeking clients for both adult and adolescent support groups. All group members must be current clients.



Medical Nutrition Therapy

$75 per hour

As a registered dietitian, I am qualified to assist you in treating medical conditions with nutrition. Conditions treated include, but are not limited to:

·         IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) – I utilize the low-FODMAP diet which improves symptoms in 70% of patients

·         Fructose malabsorption

·         Lactose intolerance

·         Celiac disease

·         Cholesterol

·         High blood pressure

·         Pre-diabetes or diabetes

·         Osteoporosis

·         GERD (acid reflux)

·         Food allergies (IgE-mediated allergies, confirmed through an Allergist)

It is most helpful if you bring current lab values (cholesterol, blood sugar, A1c, etc.) or test results with you so that I can make the most appropriate recommendations for you.


Virtual Counseling

I am licensed in Iowa, Illinois and West Virginia. If you live in one of these states, we can meet virtually through a HIPAA-compliant, secure platform. 


 

A Superbill is provided for consultations upon request which can be submitted to your insurance plan. As insurance plans vary, there is no guarantee you will be reimbursed from your plan, but if you are, reimbursement will come directly to you. I do not bill insurance so that I can keep my rates low. Please compare my rates with others.

 When food and body image are difficult subjects, I have a variety of fidget toys and stress balls to help process anxious energy.  Photo credit: Katy Dodds, The Hawk Eye
