Nutrition Services for Individuals

My counseling has moved out of the office to online services. Online individual services are conducted either by phone or a telehealth platform. Consultations may focus on wellness, disease prevention, or disease correction. Many individuals have multiple medical conditions that need dietary intervention, and as a licensed dietitian/nutritionist I am qualified to prescribe medical nutrition therapy (MNT) for these circumstances. The appropriate individualized diet therapy may:

  • Reduce or eliminate the need for prescription drugs
  • Help reduce and control disease complications
  • Improve overall quality of life and health status

Scheduling An Appointment

To start the scheduling process, please use the contact form, email mydietmatters@yahoo.com, or call (847) 692-3438. When contacting me, please provide me with an idea of services needed (such as weight loss, blood pressure, diabetes education, wellness). And, please let me know your nutritional goals. After you have reached out to me, I will be in touch.

Please submit the New Client Form & the Food Frequency Questionnaire, located below, prior to your appointment.

Payment

I accept checks, Zelle, health care spending accounts, and Visa/Mastercard/Discover credit cards. All appointments are to be paid at the time the appointment is scheduled. In the event you set up an appointment and then cancel with 24 hours notification, you will be issued a full refund.

A word about health care insurance

You will need to check with your insurance carrier regarding coverage for my services, as it varies depending on your individual policy. A receipt for services is always available should you wish to attempt reimbursement to yourself by filing a claim with your private insurance carrier in the event my services are covered. Services may also be potentially covered by medical flexible spending accounts.

We will start addressing your particular nutritional concerns. I will have reviewed your submitted paperwork at the time of this appointment, and the process of redesigning your diet and health will begin. This counseling option is suitable for counseling related to weight, educating yourself on appropriate foods for certain medical conditions, or just getting your pressing nutritional concerns addressed. The “New Client Jump Start 1 Hour Session” can be the starting point for any interval of follow-up appointments for weight loss, diet therapy, or wellness.

3) Food Sensitivity Testing Evaluation Process-$120

To best advise you on this process, you will schedule a 45 minute appointment. For some individuals, food sensitivity testing can be very beneficial. Others may benefit from alternate dietary intervention. Should it be deemed to be appropriate to move forward, there are many testing options. Options include: how many foods are tested, additives, and environmental chemicals.

Moving forward, the steps are:

  • A testing kit will be delivered directly to your home or business.
  • You will have a blood draw at a lab. The lab will require a small blood draw fee.
  • Your blood will be shipped overnight to another lab for analysis.
  • When results are ready, we will set up 3 hours of counseling over a 3 month period. You will receive your results as a pdf file and a hard copy. Text and email support is available between appointments.
  • Pricing varies based on the extent of testing. Prices range from $875 to $1080. The initial charge is deducted once testing proceeds.

4) Menus Just for You!
