Frequently Asked Questions

Do you take insurance?

 

I do not. I can provide you with a receipt of services (a billing statement) containing medical codes to submit to your insurance company requesting reimbursement. Insurance is often resistant to cover nutrition counseling, however I can provide you with a few tips on how to increase your chances of being reimbursed. 

 

I don't live in San Diego or want to commute, can you still help me?

 

Yes! Most of my clients live in various parts of California. When appropriate, I love to work with clients that live in other states or countries. 

 

How can I schedule an initial assessment?

 

Contact me via phone (text or call) or email me. I will respond as soon as I am able.

 

Are you available for in person sessions?

 

I am available for in person sessions at my office in San Diego, Ca (Scripps Ranch).  I used to have an office in Santa Cruz, Ca and still work with individuals from the Bay Area regularly via telehealth visits (video chat). 

 

If we have sessions via video chat, how will you keep track of my weight?

 

My nutrition and health philosophy maintains more focus on eating and behavior patterns rather than weight. However, tracking weight can be an important vital marker in some cases. Whether or not to track weight is something we would decide together. If we decide tracking weight is necessary, then we will also decide the best way to go about it. Some examples include: having weight taken at a MD or therapist office, by a parent, or self weighing as part of a session.
