Dima is a very knowledgeable dietician. She had so much patience in answering all my questions and she had easy to follow guidelines for not only myself but for my children as well. She even offered some yummy recipes. I will definitely recommend her to friends and family.

About

I am a registered dietitian nutritionist with more than 25 years of professional experience promoting a healthy lifestyle for adults, kids, teens and families. I specialize in eating disorder nutrition therapy as well as nutrition for overall health. My approach for eating disorder recovery as well as weight management is based on the principles of "intuitive eating," or the "non-diet" approach. This gentle nutrition philosophy helps chronic dieters discover their natural, internal signals of hunger and fullness. As a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, and Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian, it is truly a joy to create a safe and nurturing environment for individuals to explore their attitudes about food and weight. There are no diets; we work together to slowly make changes that will improve your health. My philosophy is one of balance and moderation and I truly believe that all food can fit. I look forward to partnering with you to determine your particular health goals.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a nutritionist cost?

A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.  

Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.
