Nutrition and Fitness Counseling

We are fortunate to have Kathleen Rodgers on our staff to provide nutrition therapy and fitness counseling to all of our patients. Kathleen has over 15 years of experience in the field of wellness and has worked with a variety of clients, including professional sports teams. Kathleen is also a Certified Diabetes Educator with a wide knowledge of the challenges of living with diabetes and techniques useful in management of those concerns.

During the initial 55-minutes consultation Kathleen will work with you to determine what your health goals are and develop an individualized plan to help you begin your journey on accomplishing your goals. Follow-up appointments are 25 minutes in length. It is recommended to have a weekly or every other week follow up appointments when first getting started to help reinforce the changes you will be making and to discuss how to handle obstacles that will arise along the way.

Consultation Preparation

Please bring a recent three-day food record to your first appointment. A food record is not required but is very beneficial in the assessment process. Also, if you are taking any supplements please bring them to the initial appointment or bring a list of the supplements you are using.

A spouse, partner, or other family member is always welcome and may be very useful.

If you have diabetes and are measuring your blood sugars, please bring your blood sugar logbook or your blood glucose meter with you to all appointments with Kathleen. Come prepared with any questions you may have regarding testing blood sugars, timing of medications, meals, snacks, physical activity or any other issues pertaining to living with diabetes.

Cost

Initial consultation (55 minutes): $135.00
