New Client FAQ

What happens at appointments?

Within a compassionate and nonjudgmental space, Julie will meet with you to discuss your health goals. An initial assessment will help the two of you collect data to determine what you want most out of the meetings. Subsequent sessions will be supportive and encouraging to help you find tools that promote physical and emotional well-being.

Who does Julie work with?

  • Those at diet rock bottom wanting to learn Intuitive Eating, attuned eating, non-diet, or Health at Every Size® strategies.
  • Those diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
  • Those who describe their eating as emotional or stress-based eating.
  • Those who consider themselves a food addict.
  • Dietitians or dietitians-in-training hoping to do their own attuned eating work.
  • Counselors or counselors-in-training hoping to do their own attuned eating work.

What are the fees for sessions?

  • One hour data-collecting initial assessment: $150
  • 50-minute follow up: $125

Can I file insurance for meetings?

Yes, we are able to file BCBS. We are a Blue Cross Blue Shield credentialed provider. If you need assistance determining your coverage, please call our Administrative Assistant Tabatha Andrews by dialing 336.273.2808 ext 0. We are not able to file other insurance plans, Medicare, or Medicaid.

Can you provide paperwork to help me file with my insurance plan?

Yes, we can provide an itemized receipt to help you file.

What is your cancellation policy?

Last minute session cancellations and no shows are a loss for everyone. We bill all appointments not cancelled within 2 business days. This bill cannot be filed with insurance.

What form of payment do you take?

You can pay with cash, check or any major credit card. Payment is due at the beginning of each session.

Can you help me lose weight?

I help all clients find health whether affected by an eating disorder or other medical conditions. I do all of this without diets or focus on weight loss. My research based philosophy asserts the pursuit of weight loss harms health long term and promotes eating disorder relapse. The pursuit of weight loss is the greatest predictor of weight gain and eating disorders. Instead, I help clients shift their goals to measure progress including higher energy levels, less joint pain, more endurance, etc. I hope this help clarify what we can and cannot do.
