INITIAL SESSION:
60 MINUTES 

During our initial session, I’ll conduct a full assessment to understand your wants and needs.  Think of this as a thorough “get to know you” session. At this time we will explore your background, history with dieting, and health habits.  We will also look at your current eating patterns, relationship with food, and body image.  Together we’ll set attainable goals and build a practical plan to help you reach these goals.

Testimonials: What My Clients Are Saying

"Prior to working with Heather my eating schedule was chaotic. Heather taught me how to meal plan in a way that worked with my busy work schedule and allowed me to eat the foods I enjoy. She also helped me shift from an all or nothing approach to nutrition to something more realistic. After working with her I began to trust myself around food again and started listening to what my body needed."

"Heather was very helpful and knowledgeable, before I went and got help from her I would binge eat. She helped me create a healthy relationship with food. I could not be more thankful to her for all her help."

The frequency and duration of our sessions will depend on the severity, complexity, and level of support you need. This will be determined during our initial session. However, nutrition therapy is not a one and done type of deal. Depending on your case we may work together for 3, 6, or 12+ months. 

As a registered dietitian providing nutrition therapy we will focus on food, weight, body image, and physical activity. We will also explore mindsets that are keeping you from living a healthful, balanced life. During nutrition therapy we will seek alternatives to the diet thought patterns and behaviors that are not serving you. Throughout this whole process you will also begin to develop awareness around your personal needs and learn how to respond to your internal cues regarding food. 

Psychotherapy with your therapist will focus more on the underlying issues fueling the eating problems, dealing with past and present relationships, feelings, trauma history, any other co-occurring disorders, etc.

At this time all services will be held virtually through a secure HIPAA compliant video platform. 

I currently only accept credit/debit card payments through Square. I also accept health savings accounts/flexible spending accounts. Payments will be made for packages on a monthly basis. Once an appointment is made you will be sent an invoice for the session. Please pay this invoice prior to the session or late fees may apply. Also note that I do not provide refunds for services or packages unless you request a cancellation of your package 48 hours prior to your session. This information is laid out in detail in your client portal account and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

I do work virtually with  some individuals with eating disorders such as anorexia, a-typical anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and OSFED.  It is important that you have an outpatient ED team. With our work together being virtual it is important you check in with other providers to have labs taken, any meds adjusted, your weight checked, etc. as determined appropriate for your recovery. Prior to us working together I would be happy to help you establish a treatment team including a therapist, physician, and psychiatrist if you do not already have one.

Depending on the level of support you need and the stage of recovery you are in, we may need to meet for check ins twice a week, weekly, or bi-weekly. I also offer virtual meal support sessions for an additional cost.
