My name is Lindsay, and I’m here to help you achieve food freedom and optimize your health!

In my clinical nutrition practice, I help clients overcome chronic disease and build optimal health using strategies informed by cutting-edge scientific research, nutritional biochemistry, and ancestral dietary wisdom. Some of my areas of specialty include the following:

Mental Health Nutrition

Nutrition is a powerful tool for supporting mental health and cognitive function. My personal experience using nutrition to overcome treatment-resistant depression and anxiety has led me to be quite passionate about this topic! I work with clients on a variety of mental health and cognitive issues, including depression, anxiety, brain fog, and neurobehavioral disorders such as ADD and ADHD.

Nutrition for Digestive Health

The health of your gut impacts the well being of your entire body; as such, my clinical nutrition practice is very gut health-oriented. Some of the most common digestive health issues I assist clients with include SIBO and IBS.

Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities are among the most common conditions I see in my clinical nutrition practice. I use several unique dietary and lifestyle approaches with my clients to help them overcome food sensitivities and broaden their palates. Some of the food sensitivities I commonly see include:

  • Histamine intolerance

  • Sulfur sensitivity

  • Oxalate sensitivity

  • FODMAP sensitivity

Support for Lyme Disease and Mold Illness

Due to my personal health journey, I am extremely passionate about providing nutritional and lifestyle support for individuals with Lyme disease and mold illness. Using advanced gut microbiome, hormonal, and metabolomic analysis, I create customized nutrition and lifestyle protocols for my clients that enhance detoxification, quench inflammation, and support whole-body recovery.

Nutrigenomics

Nutritional genomics, commonly referred to as “nutrigenomics,” is a field of science that studies the effects of nutrients on the genome, proteome, and metabolome. I employ a systems biology approach to uncover how your body responds to foods and nutrients based on your genetics.

Pricing Structure:

I like to be up-front and transparent about my pricing structure; this allows prospective clients to see exactly what they are paying for when they work with me.

One-Hour Consult: $150

  • This one-hour consult is for prospective clients interested in doing a comprehensive consult with me outside the context of my 3-month or 6-month packages.

  • Includes review of health history and lab work and a comprehensive nutrition plan with food, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations.

3-Month Nutrition Package: $495

Payment plan available: $95 deposit, 2 monthly payments of $150, 1 monthly payment of $100

This package includes the following:

  • Two 50-minute consults with me. In the initial consult, we will go over your health history, new client questionnaire, and any relevant lab work you would like to share with me. The second 50-minute appointment can be scheduled at any time in the three-month package.

  • One 30-minute follow up and three 15-minute follow ups over the course of three months. These calls allow us to communicate regularly about how your nutrition protocol is going, and allow me to make changes to your plan as needed.

  • Includes a comprehensive nutrition plan with food, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations.

6-Month Nutrition Package: $840

Payment plan available: $140 deposit and 5 monthly payments of $140

This plan is ideal for individuals who want to make a long-term commitment to improving their health. Dietary changes often take time to elicit beneficial results, and the length of this program gives us an optimal length of time to implement food and nutrition changes, observe results, and change course as needed.

This package includes the following:

  • Two 50-minute consults over the course of six months.

  • Includes a comprehensive nutrition plan with food, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations.

  • Two 30-minute follow ups and four 15-minute follow ups with me over the course of six months.

FAQs

Do you take insurance?

Many prospective clients wonder whether I take insurance. Because insurance regulations vary from state to state and I see clients across the country, taking insurance is unfortunately time-prohibitive for me. However, I am happy to provide you with a superbill that you can submit to their insurance provider.

How do you work with clients?

Currently, my nutrition practice is exclusively telehealth-based, which means I see clients through HIPAA-compliant video conferencing software.

What is the difference between a CNS and an RD?

While the credentials RD (Registered Dietitian) and CNS (Certified Nutrition Specialist) both signify nutrition expertise, there are important differences between the two.

As of 2019, registered dietitians are NOT required to have a Master’s degree. While many RD’s later go on to obtain a Master’s degree, it is not a requirement. Conversely, Certified Nutrition Specialists - I am currently completing my 1,000-hour internship to become one - MUST have a Master’s degree in the health sciences. My Master’s degree in Human Nutrition. I went through over two years of nutrition-specific graduate training, an experience that has truly refined my nutrition knowledge base.

Another important difference is that many RD’s begin by working in an institutional setting, such as a hospital. Their nutrition training generally follows conventional dietary guidelines. CNS’s, on the other hand, are trained from a functional medicine/nutrition perspective.
