Do you accept any other health insurance besides BCBS PPO?
No, we do not.
Are your sessions in person or virtual?
The sessions we provide are virtual only. We use a HIPAA-compliant platform (Practice Better) for scheduling and providing telehealth visits.
Who do you work with?
We work with adults and adolescents/teens (ages 14-19) of all genders/backgrounds. We work with individuals experiencing disordered eating behaviors, chronic dieting, binge/emotional eating and those in late-stage anorexia/ bulimia recovery.
What happens on the complimentary call?
To book a complimentary call with me, there will be a short form to complete to help me gain a better understanding of what your goals and needs are.
It is a no pressure call that allows us to get to know each other better. I'll ask you a few questions to get a better feel for what you're looking for and what your goals are. I'll always provide time on the call for you to ask me any questions.
I'll always ask for your consent before providing any information regarding my services.
At the end of the call, if you're feeling like it's a good fit, we can proceed to making your first appointment and getting you set up to work together.
If you're feeling like you would like more time to think about it, that will be respected and you do not have to make a decision on the call. I may ask for your permission to reach back out to you in a couple of days to check in with you to see if you've made a decision or have any further questions.
Do I need to book a call to work with you?
No, I understand calls can sometimes be intimidating! You are welcome to send an email instead and we can chat that way. Email me at Emily@truebeingrd.com
Will you provide me a meal plan?
In our practice, we use meal plans to help support adequacy and variety in your eating. The meal plan we may provide is to be used as a guide to ensure you are eating enough on a consistent basis. This will typically involve at least 3 meals + 3 snacks with all 3 macronutrients at each meal and snack (protein + carb + fat). Calories will not be listed on the meal guide, but portion sizes may be used. The ultimate goal with using a meal guide is to eventually be able to eat independently of a meal guide and be more in touch with your hunger and fullness signals and overall nutrient needs. Not everyone will need a meal plan or meal guide. Instead, having structured meal and snack times will be encouraged along with incorporating more variety into your diet (letting go of restrictive food rules).
What if I want to lose weight? Will you help me with that?
With the Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size approach, weight is not the primary focus or objective; rather, the objective is to work on developing a healthy relationship with food. To understand what a healthy relationship with food looks like click here
. If you have concerns about your weight or your health we will absolutely discuss those concerns in your sessions. However, if your goal is to lose weight and have someone help you do that, we may not be the right fit. Please reach out to tell us about your situation and we can determine if a referral to another provider would better suit your needs.
How long do people usually work with you?
This varies person to person and is typically dependent upon their relationship with food, dieting history and level of confidence in continuing on their own after working together. On average, the clients we work with stay with us for 6 to 9 months.
