Will my insurance cover nutrition-related services?

I do not provide services that are typically covered by insurance, so I do not partner with any insurance companies at this time. It is my hope that more preventive and nutrition-related services will be standard across insurance providers in the future. Until then, I can provide you with a Superbill for 1:1 visits. I recommend that you check with your provider to verify if they will accept a Superbill for credit towards your deductible.

What is your website privacy policy?

I do not use or track your data when you visit this site. Your contact information, such as name and email address, will only be made available to me if you choose to submit a form on my site. Wix only reveals visitor data in the aggregate (e.g. number of visitors and time spent on page), and none of this is accompanied by any personal identifiers.
