Nutrition Counseling

nutrition services

The initial visit is usually 75-90 minutes. During this visit, we will discuss your medical and health history, eating habits and preferences, lifestyle, current challenges, and your nutrition goals. The main purpose of this session is to learn more about you, address questions and concerns you may have, and begin collaborating to develop a customized plan that is best suited for you. Ready to get started? Call 1-917-566-4699 to schedule an appointment.

The frequency of follow-up sessions is based on your individual needs and will be discussed during the first visit. Follow-up visits provide ongoing support, nutrition education, and meal planning. We will address any challenges you may be experiencing, and adjust your plan to better help you reach your goals.

Particularly for clients struggling with eating disorders, a team approach is often necessary. I am happy to provide referrals to therapists and physicians if needed and coordinate care with your other medical providers.

Nutrition counseling visits are offered in my convenient Midtown office. Video and phone sessions are also available.
