You have the answers.
We’ll help you unlock them.
At Nourished + Strong, we do things a bit differently than other nutritionists you may have encountered.
We don’t want to tell you what to eat—we want you to get in tune with what your body says.
We don’t want you to depend on us—we want you to learn and then flourish on your own.
We don’t want to fix just one piece of the puzzle—we want you to improve your holistic health.
We don’t want to prescribe packaged services—we want to meet your needs with options.
We like to think of our roles as tour guides who can help you get in touch with your body and build the skill sets around nutrition that will serve you well on an independent journey. That individualized approach extends to our services, which include virtual or in-person counseling sessions, advanced testing options, grocery store tours, group seminars and more.
Nourished + Strong is an in-network provider with BCBS and Cigna. If you would like a complimentary benefits check before your first session to see if nutrition counseling is covered by your plan, please indicate while booking.

Complete Micronutrient Testing
We believe that you are the best expert in YOU. Essentially the opposite of a one-size-fits-all meal plan, our goal is to help you reconnect with your body so that you can make empowered choices for yourself. (Now and throughout the rest of your life!)
Dieting (and diet culture) profits from having you adhere to a set of external rules. In some ways, they actually like when you "fail" because it keeps you coming back. Taking a non-diet approach is more about giving you the skills to make internally driven choices without all of the outside noise. In our time together, we may chose to integrate parts of intuitive eating, but you'll also gain a deeper understanding and respect for the science of nutrition, how your body works, mental health, exercise, and more!
Does this take work? Yes, because we are talking about unlearning years if not decades worth of diet muck. In fact, non-diet work can initially feel more uncomfortable than if we were just to tell you what, when and how to eat. But this is about taking the long view with your health, wellness and happiness—and it’s 100% worth it.
Nope—but we will teach you about the basics of human physiology and nutrition so you can make informed decisions. Married with your newfound mindfulness and non-judgmental check-ins with your body, and you’ll learn to fuel yourself with confidence.
Are you thinking "but meal plans have really worked for me in the past, if I'm just told what to do, I can do it"? I beg the question: if you're here on our website, has it really worked for you?
The skills you will learn from us transcend just what to eat. If knowing we won't tell you WHAT to eat makes you feel a little panicky –don't worry– we've heard that before. Remember, diet culture has profited from keeping you externally focused– so much so that people often have a hard time knowing what they even really like anymore. We'll not only help you rediscover what you like, but teach you how to fuel your body to feel your best– whatever that means to you.
First, know that you are not alone– the majority of our clients find themselves here because of body dissatisfaction or a health concern that they believe will improve with weight loss. They also stay long enough to read this because they know, deep down, that what they have been doing –dieting in the pursuit of weight loss– has not been working.
As HAES aligned weight-neutral Dietitians, weight is not a metric of success that we use. We will help you explore why weight loss feels important, what beliefs you hold about about your weight/body and where those beliefs came from.
In our work together, your weight may increase, decrease, or stay the same– you will also learn that your worth is so much more than your weight. Body image and self confidence is learned, and unfortunately, much of the learning is filtered through generations of a weight-centric fat-phobic diet culture. Some of the most powerful transformation you can expect takes place when we really sort through these beliefs to reach a more meaningful revelation about how your self-talk is dictating what you eat and how you treat yourself.
The short answer: meaningful change in just about every aspect of life. By focusing on our five pillars of wellness, we will address mindfulness, stress management, self-care, athletic performance, sleep quality, digestion, mental focus, energy and, yes, nutrition.
Because our approach is so personalized, you come to us with your hopes and needs and we’ll go from there.
First, you can improve your health completely independent of your weight.
Weight is not an accurate reflection of a person's health. Health comes in a variety of shapes and sizes– and this is supported by science. Intentional weight loss often leads to weight cycling, which can be more harmful to overall bio-health markers. Simply put, a "prescription" for weight loss to treat a health condition could actually be worse for your health in the long run.
So why was I told to lose weight? Weight bias is extremely common in the healthcare system with known adverse effects. This is the very reason someone in a smaller body with a health complaint may get further testing; whereas an overweight individual with the same complaint will be told to lose weight without further investigation. In instances where our clients were instructed to lose weight, we help them dive deeper into all contributing factors, and help them to advocate for proper assessment and treatment independent of weight.
The average length of time we spend with clients is 6 months, but the key word in that phrase is “average.” We aren’t about locking people in and we aren’t about quick fixes either. We’re about exploring what is best for you to set you up for success. (If resuming sessions at a later time is part of that journey, we’ll be there for you then, too.)
We are an in-network provider for BCBS and Cigna. We bill under Preventative Wellness commonly using diagnosis Z71.3 and procedure codes 97802/97803. Most plans provide coverage without copays or coinsurance, but we will do a benefits check to confirm before we begin working together.
Advanced services or tests may have out-of-pocket fees. We are always transparent about costs up-front, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions.
You still have a few options.
- We can provide a superbill for reimbursement.
- You can pay for your sessions/services with HSA/FSA dollars or cash/check/major credit cards.
- Talk with us about payment plans and sliding scales.
Even with these tests there is a good amount of interpretation involved, so it is important we understand you through an initial assessment or subsequent sessions.
Furthermore, working with you gives us a chance to determine appropriateness. These tools can be incredibly valuable when used appropriately, so we will NOT use them just to prove there is something “wrong” with your body “to be fixed.”
Virtual counseling appointments and micro/hormone tests are available, but may not be covered by your insurance. Metabolism testing is only available in person. Check with us to learn more.
