Ready to be you…healthier & happier?

It’s time for personal telehealth nutrition & lifestyle coaching

 

Changing habits isn’t easy. You don’t have to do it alone – personal nutrition telehealth can help.

I provide kind, skillful personal nutrition telehealth & lifestyle coaching, Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) and premium online programs to help you shift your choices. Science shows that people with support (especially from a board-certified clinician) are much more likely to succeed!

Bringing your lifestyle into alignment with intention, and your unique physiology helps you:

 

Look Better, Feel Better, Live Longer and Live Better.

 

Ready to change, (or ready to get ready)?

Have a concerning chronic or medical condition knocking at the door?

Let’s talk!

I’ve helped thousands of people make their next step toward feeling fantastic with high-impact personal nutrition and lifestyle coaching.

Telehealth is easy and accessible from anywhere, including the comfort of your own home.

If you’re health professional frustrated with the soul-limiting aspects of allopathic (Western, pharmaceutical-heavy) medicine seeking like-minded practitioners, hello there friend! I see a lot of health pros in my practice & can help you sort through nutrition and lifestyle options from allopathic and functional medicine. No, you don’t have to spend a small fortune to be well.

What they say…

Your help has been immeasurable. I’m enormously grateful for your gentle wisdom & good humor.

Are We a Good Fit? 

I work with people willing to make a change and open to experimenting with shifts in food, movement, mindset and stress management. If you are ready to change, or want to be ready to change, let’s connect.

People who are willing and able to commit to working together for at least 3 sessions are a good fit. One-offs usually don’t work so I don’t do them.

People interested in premium programs for transformative change are also a great fit. I’ll tell you about these when we meet for our initial appointment, or during a free 15 minute discovery call.

Nutrition is the most powerful medicine available to us – I’ve seen people transform their lives for the better over and over again – small imperfect changes, practiced regularly, work. But, it takes effort to do that.

If you put in the effort to shift, I will be right there with you. Keep showing up and I will be right there with you. Oh, you’ve got to be civil – please be polite to my assistant Jamie & to me. We’ll always be kind & honest with you.

Personal, Licensed

I’m licensed in nutrition in the great state of MA, and use wisdom traditions like yoga therapy, plant alchemy and Ayurveda within my licensed practice.

Insurance for Telehealth in MA

Many nutrition-related issues are covered by insurance in MA.  I am in-network for the following insurers, and have listed a sample of nutrition benefits they have provided. Please note that insurers tend to cover personal sessions and sometimes groups.

Call the number on the back of your insurance card to verify your nutrition coverage for a MA-licensed nutritionist, learn about the # of visits in your benefit, co-pays and deductibles. 

This list does not guarantee your case will be covered and benefits often change. You are responsible for services provided that your insurer does not cover. 

In Network Telehealth Insurers in MA

  • AllWays (commercial, telehealth currently covered, no MD referral necessary, contract begins 1/1/22),
  • BCBS of MA (PPO & HMO – usually 6 to unlimited annual visits, no MD referral necessary, telehealth currently covered, please check your co-pay & # visits covered),
  • United Healthcare (commercial products, telehealth currently covered, no MD referral necessary, please check your co-pay & # of visits covered),
  • Cigna (commercial products, telehealth covered, no MD referral necessary, please check your co-pay & # of visits covered),
  • Health New England (4 annual nutrition visits, no MD referral needed, telehealth currently covered, please check your co-pay),
  • CDPHP (usually 8 annual visits, telehealth currently covered, no MD referral necessary),
  • Medicare (usually 2 visits for newly diagnosed diabetes, 2-4 visits for kidney disease, MD referral & medical necessity documentation required).

Please call your insurer to verify coverage, benefit limits on number of telehealth visits, co-pays, deductibles, and if you can work with a nutritionist licensed in MA.

A note on MD referrals: While some insurers are waiving these – perhaps temporarily – working within a medical team is always a great idea.

Here is myABK Nutrition Referral Form.

Services not covered by your insurance will be billed to you. A credit card will be taken at the time of appointment for co-pays and cancellations. Payment is due at or before time of service.

Outside of MA?

Every state handles nutrition telehealth a little differently, and during COVID, some states are allowing a bit of flexibility with telehealth across state lines. Give us a call or send an email to inquire about your state.

 Wait, What is Telehealth?

I use an electronic health record & communication service. It is an HIPAA-compliant, secure/encrypted, and engaging online portal that helps you keep track of your food and life choices, yoga and other movement, health markers/biometric data, and lots more. This will be your home base to track your health-enhancing lifestyle.

You can seamlessly stay connected with me online between appointments and quickly share labs, photos of meals, nutrition labels, or other nutrition-related information that you encounter during your day.

If you prefer, I can also work with you via phone, email and/or snail mail. I’m flexible.

My telehealth nutrition & lifestyle coaching practice currently takes place on most Tuesdays & on some Thursday & Friday afternoons.
