Fort Worth nutritionist frequently asked questions.
I’m not trying to lose weight, but I want to get healthier. Can you help me?
Yes! My practice is weight-neutral, which means I recommend actions that support your health regardless of your weight. At your first appointment, I’ll ask about your history of weight loss and gain because that has an effect on your current health. After that, we won’t discuss weight unless you want to. Your weight may stay the same, increase, or decrease as you become more healthy.
Do you serve people regardless of size, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, and ability?
Yes! I’m HAES and LGBTQIA-friendly, and empathetic to the unique challenges of people who are differently-abled. If you’re human, I’d love to help you. Let’s chat! If another nutritionist/trainer with more experience in your unique situation would be a better fit for you, I’ll be sure to let you know. I have a broad network of practitioners whom I know and trust.
I don’t get a period. Can you help me?
Absolutely. Whether you want to get your period back, or have never had one because of your birth sex, I can help you with all aspects of your health. I specialize in helping women support their mental health and have happy periods, and I can help you with your goals even if periods are not a concern for you.
Do you offer specialized tests?
Yes. I’m partnered with Precision Analytical to offer in-depth hormone tests. This type of test can be done in your home and includes many reproductive and stress hormones. It’s a great option if you are preparing for pregnancy, going through menopause, or have unexplained symptoms like insomnia, hair loss, and irregular periods.
What is the process like when working with you?
Send me a message to set up a free phone call! You can get to know me a bit and ask any questions you have about working with me. Then we’ll schedule your initial consultation. Before your first session, you’ll need to fill out an intake and consent form, send me any recent blood work/labs, and record your typical food intake for 3 days.
At your initial consultation, we’ll have an in-depth discussion about your goals, your needs, and your current ability to make changes to support those goals and needs.
Then we’ll get started with your nutrition care plan, which I’ll design and send to you after your session. You can take that information and run with it, or if you need more support, set up ongoing sessions.
I’m taking birth control and it makes me feel terrible - I’m depressed, my periods HURT, and I kinda hate life right now. I want to make it stop but I’m scared to quit because my period was even worse before I went on BC. Can you help me?
Ugh, I’m so sorry you’re experiencing those symptoms. You’ll need to work with your doctor before deciding if you want to quit birth control, and I can help you feel better regardless of your decision.
Most medications cause nutrient depletions, either because they inhibit absorption or cause your body to use more of that nutrient. It’s more common than you think! I’m trained to identify those potential depletions and design a plan to help you overcome them.
Do you take insurance?
Short answer? No, my practice is self-pay. However, I can provide a superbill that you can submit to your insurance provider for potential reimbursement.
