Frequently Asked Questions
Let's Redefine Your Relationship With Food!
All my clients start with a 75-90 minute comprehensive initial evaluation to better understand their individual needs. The first session includes:
- understanding your history;
- looking at your current lab work (if any);
- discussing your goals;
- creating a plan together.
By the end of the evaluation, you will receive a personalized care plan and recommendations. We will also decide on how much support is needed and schedule our next session.
Eating disorders and disordered eating share many of the same characteristics. These include: obsessing over your size/body weight, dieting all the time and/or eating in secret, hiding food or covering up how little or much you have eaten.
Eating disorders are diagnosed conditions by a physician or mental health professional. Even though you may not have an eating disorder diagnosis, disordered eating behaviors can have a significant impact on your health.

Most health insurance plans do cover nutrition counseling, either as treatment of a health problem or as part of your preventative health benefits. Restore Wellness is currently in-network with Premera Blue Cross/Blue Shield. We do not check insurance benefits on your behalf, so it is your responsibility to verify what your plan does or does not cover, and what your portion of the cost will be.

Yes! We offer virtual appointments (also called telehealth) where we meet online for a video call. Most insurance companies accept these types of visits for clients in Alaska.
If you live outside of Alaska, please contact us prior to scheduling your appointment to determine if we can work with you. Some states allow it, and some do not. Please contact your insurance company as well to verify you have telehealth benefits.
