My consults are now 100% virtual, using a secure platform designed for healthcare professionals (IntakeQ). Feel free to reach out to me for a free introductory call if you’re struggling with food at this stressful time. Happy to help you stay well.
(Sorry to say I can’t do this with residents of BC, Ontario, Quebec, and PEI due to regulations set by their dietetic colleges. But if you live there and need a referral, look on the Dietitians of Canada website or email me.)
Check your benefits.
Dietitan services are often covered by extended benefits plans. If not, perhaps you can ask for it! Make your case with the help of this infographic.
Either way, health spending accounts will also cover our visits. (Double-check with your provider so there are no surprises!)
Meet & Greet
Start with a quick chat. Ask me anything. I can provide you with resources and/or recipes. No pressure, I like to give you a chance to assess whether we’re a good fit.
During February and March (Heart and Nutrition Months), I’ll be offering free 20-minute Q&A calls. There’s so much conflicting nutrition information out there. I’m happy to help you make sense of it.
Cardiac Nutrition Assessment
You’re a highly motivated self-starter who wants to ensure you’re on the right track with eating for heart health.
Think of this as your annual nutrition checkup. You’ll complete a questionnaire and food record, after which we’ll meet to ensure that I understand your priorities, health situation, and eating habits. I’ll provide you with a personalized assessment and recommendation report and then we’ll meet again to review it, answer your questions, and solidify your plan.
Jumpstart to Change
Heart health is important to you, but you struggle to stay on track. You have one or more nutrition-related heart disease risk factors that need attention — blood sugars, pressure, cholesterol, or triglycerides.
We’ll start with a Cardiac Nutrition Assessment as above, and add two additional follow-up sessions on the topics of your choice from the Ala Carte list below.
Label reading and (online) grocery store tour
You read labels, but aren’t sure what’s most important and what it all means.
I’ll teach you how to interpret the information on packages, including nutrition facts, ingredient lists, and marketing claims. I’ll also show you some of my favourite heart-healthy products. Let’s talk food!
60 minutes, $100 .
Meal Planning Session
You struggle to come up with nourishing, satisfying meals, day after busy day.
We’ll make a meal planning routine that works for you and set you up with an individualized list of go-to breakfasts, snacks, and entrees. If it’s heart-healthy recipes you need, we’ll open up the vault of my Evernote recipe collection and freshen things up in your kitchen.
60 minutes, $100 .
You’re confident in your eating habits and ability to follow through, but want help making sense of conflicting advice from different sources.
Ask as many burning questions as you can fit into an hour and leave with a better understanding of nutrition and heart health.
You’re making changes and are looking for a coach to support and cheer you on along the way.
We’ll review your progress, troubleshoot, and adjust your plan as necessary. Book a shorter session for a quick accountability check-in, a longer session if you have more questions or want to do additional work on one of the topics above.
60 minutes, $100 .
45 minutes, $80 .
30 minutes, $55 .
15 minutes, $30 .
HumanaCare EAP Consultations
If your benefits include an EAP provided by HumanaCare, you may be able to work with me under that plan for a defined number of 50-minute sessions, as determined by HumanaCare. We can tackle the topics above, depending on your needs.
Contact your benefits coordinator for details. Once you’ve been approved, you can book here.
If you want to offer a fun, interactive nutrition workshop to your employees or clients, I’m happy to help, and we can do it via webinar too. All about that here, including topics and services.
Healthy eating doesn’t have to be hard
Between the media, the Internet, diets, and your helpful family, sometimes you can feel lost.
It doesn’t have to be that way!
Most nutrition experts agree on the fundamentals of eating to support good health. And there are lots of ways to get there.
One that works for you, I’m willing to bet. That’s what I call your sweet spot. That place where healthy, delicious, and right for you overlap.
I’m here to help you find your Sweet Spot. It might take a little time and some experimentation. Even once you know what to do, you may struggle to consistently do it. But once you really find your Sweet Spot, you’ll get to relax and confidently enjoy great food that supports heart health.
Let’s find your sweet spot.
If cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, blood sugars or any other nutrition-related aspect of cardiovascular health is your primary concern and…
- You want to say goodbye to food stress.
- You’re done with dieting — losing weight only to gain it back in a year or two.
- You do want to eat for better health, energy, and satisfaction.
Start by scheduling an introductory call and we’ll go from there!
