Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Do you take insurance?
Answer: If you have PPO insurance, we take PPO insurance as out-of-network providers and will provide you with a super bill so you can it to your insurance company for direct reimbursement. If you have a PPO, you will want to find out the amount of your deductible, how much of your deductible has been met and what percentage of the fee your insurer is stating they plan to pay.
Question: How long can I expect to be in therapy?
Answer: While we believe in therapy no longer than necessary, the length of therapy is unique to each individual and depends on the personality, life experiences, and goals for each. We work with our clients to define their goals and then check in on a regular basis to assess and re-evaluate these goals. The treatment of trauma, attachment wounds, mood issues, recovery from disordered eating, compulsive behaviors and addictions and couples conflict take time, patience, dedication and practice.
Question: How frequent are sessions?
Answer: Most clients schedule weekly sessions, although some prefer to meet more or less frequently depending on their recovery and support needs.
Question: What is the fee and the length of therapy?
Answer: The standard session is usually 45-50 minutes. Extended sessions for couples work, EMDR or other needs are also often an option. Your therapist will let you know what the fee will be and any other options that may be available when you are scheduling your first session
Question: Do I still need to participate in nutritional therapy if I am well informed about nutrition?
Answer: Our Registered Dietitian, Megan Holt, DrPH, can help you sort through misinformation that contributes to over and under nutrition, sports nutrition, and all kinds of wellness issues like diabetes, blood pressure issues and more. You can expect evidence-based support that will help you improve your performance in sports and in life rather than trendy or fad-driven advice. Our customized support goes beyond the standard education and meal plan models while advocating a non-diet philosophy. If you are seeking support with food + body issues, seeing a specialized RD is in compliance with the standards of care and the ethics in the treatment of disordered eating.
Question: What is the different between a Registered Dietitian and a Nutritionist?
Answer: The Registered Dietician credential is a legally protected title that can only be used by practitioners who are authorized by the Commission on Dietetic Registration of the American Dietetic Association. Individuals with the Registered Dietitian credential have fulfilled specific requirements, including having earned at least a bachelor’s degree in nutritional science, completed a supervised practice program and passed a registration examination—in addition to maintaining continuing education requirements for recertification. See the American Dietetic Association’s website for more information.
The definition and requirements for the term “nutritionist” vary. Some states have licensure laws that define the scope of practice for someone using the designation “nutritionist,” but in other states, virtually anyone can call him – or herself a “nutritionist” regardless of education or training (or lack thereof).
