I’m not in Colorado. Can I still work with you?
-Yes! Since all visits are conducted through a HIPAA-compliant video call, we can work with clients across the US. However, we can only bill insurance for Colorado residents.
-While this may be a new way for you to work with a practitioner, we have found most clients grow to love the ease and convenience of having one less appointment to travel to (especially in inclement weather or if they are not feeling well). It's especially helpful for those living in a more remote area, being able to have access to a digestive health dietitian when their area doesn't have one.

-We offer payment plans and bills through PayPal. PayPal Credit, which is similar to Care Credit, is a 6-month, no-interest payment plan.
What is the difference between an RDN and other "nutritionists"?
-The short answer is that all Registered Dietitians (RD or RDN) are nutritionists, but not all nutritionists are Registered Dietitian Nutritionists. Virtually anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, which makes it really tough to differentiate those with extensive nutrition education (i.e., RDN and CNS) from those who took a weekend class or read a book.
-Other nutritionists (health coaches, holistic nutritionists, nutrition therapy practitioners, etc.) may have little to no formal training in nutrition, and their services are not eligible for insurance reimbursement anywhere in the US.
