Frequently Asked Questions

If food is hard- we are here to help! You do not have to be “sick enough” to get care from us. Our dream is for everyone to have peace with food and their body and we will be over the moon to help you. In fact, preventative care and/or early intervention is the most cost-effective form of treatment.

If you are seeing me for an eating disorder, you’ll typically see the best progress starting out with weekly appointments. Once consistent progress is made, appointments can be made bi-weekly, monthly, etc.

For disordered eating, bi-weekly sessions are often perfect. If you are moving towards Intuitive Eating, this is not a process that can be rushed. I think you’ll appreciate the time between sessions to put the thought and practice in.

Our initial nutrition counseling session is pure assessment! Often people want a meal plan right away and that will not likely happen. The time is important, though. Here I’ll get to know you as a person, listen to your story, and discuss your goals and expectations. We will do a nutrition assessment- dieting history, food and eating behaviours, typical eating patterns, cooking abilities, general food preferences, thoughts and feelings about food and body, medical/mental history, weight/growth history (when applicable) and your goals. Based on all this information, I will outline the a treatment process plan and recommendations to help you meet your goals.

Follow-up appointments: 

In follow-up appointments, we work on a variety of things to help you logistically meet your nutrition goals, as well as teaching you tools and techniques to help repair your relationship with food, your body, and movement. Often you know generally what you should do, it’s the how, right? We will work on the how. I incorporate a variety of psychotherapeutic modalities in my nutrition counselling work with you, including but not limited to: CBT, FBT, ACT, DBT/RO-DBT, Mindfulness, Self-Compassion, and Intuitive Eating. Ultimately we teach you how to listen to how your body communicates to you through hunger, fullness, cravings, and satisfaction, and more.

We work with clients in both short-term and long-term capacities. Treatment duration is highly variable depending on factors including but not limited to: presenting concerns & co-occurring conditions, duration & severity of presenting concerns. Many clients in eating disorder recovery choose to see us longer-term, with less frequent appointments once in a maintenance phase for relapse prevention and continued healing. 

You will be able to message me with brief questions on our client portal and can expect a reply in 24 business hours. Some questions might require a lengthy answers- those of which we will address at your next session!

Also, I get it’s easy to forget what we talked about in session! After all dietitian sessions, you’ll get a summary of what we talked about including practice points, handouts, and resources to support you.

Not at this time, but we are working on it. Of note- as of this writing, BUPA reimburses the most for eating disorder care and they currently cover only 3 sessions. Be sure to talk to your insurance company about what they will cover so you are not surprised when the coverage runs out.

We require 48 hours notice for cancelled appointments. A late cancellation or a missed visit leaves a hole in the schedule where we could have been providing another client with care. Also, as a small local business, late cancellations cost practices like ours enormously – up to £20,000 a year!

Appointments cancelled within 48 hours or that are missed will incur a cancellation fee of 50% of the appointment cost.
