Individual nutrition counseling with a registered dietitian/nutritionist is ideal when you’re focused on high stakes health goals and need to work out a highly personalized plan to last a lifetime. We have found through many years of meeting with clients that there is no “one-size-fits-all” protocol for weight loss or diabetes education that will really meet your individual needs. At our office, you will meet with your dietitian provider in a one-to-one setting to discuss your particular goals and unique challenges so that you get the right tools, support and information to put you in control of your health and weight challenges.

She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Alabama and is accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Most private insurance plans don’t require a formal referral. However, if you have been told that your blood glucose or cholesterol is elevated, or that you have diabetes or any number of other health problems, it helps to have a referral so that labs and medication details are available during our visits. Medicare requires a referral. Your medical provider can fax referrals to (907) 312-7700.
Our services are typically covered under preventive care provisions of private health plans if you have a BMI over 30. Here are some examples:
