Session Overviews

Nutrition Sessions

As our Registered Dietitians are board-certified in the specialty practice area of Integrative & Functional Medicine Nutrition, new patient appointments are longer than the usual nutrition consult. You will establish a partnership with your RDN and she will formulate a medical nutrition plan that is both safe and effective using the functional medicine model. 

 

Your RDN will complete a detailed review of your medical history, medication history, nutrition history, environmental factors, lifestyle and genetic considerations, and leverage that data to create a personalized treatment plan that leads to improved outcomes. By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, we can reduce disease risk and help you reach your wellness goals. Sometimes one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, every care plan is unique and established in visit case by case. Our recommendations may include further testing or collaboration with other health professionals to help identify and treat root cause (antecedents, triggering events, and mediators/perpetuators).

 

At the end of each visit  you and your RDN will establish short and long-term goals, and decide how often you would like to meet for continuity of care. Initial appointments are 90-120 minutes long. Follow-ups range between 30-120 minutes depending on the complexity of the case and patient need.

Therapy Sessions

Our therapist Allison will contact you personally for a brief introductory call free of charge, to ensure you are comfortable with moving forward to schedule an appointment.

 

Your therapy sessions are all about you, and opportunities for you and your therapist to get to know each other. Clients are invited to talk about the issues that have brought them to counseling. Each session will vary between clients based on their specific challenges and the treatment style. Visit length is 55 minutes.

Nurse Practitioner Consults

Our NP will meet with you at our Grand Island location to perform a detailed nutrition focused physical. She will provide a copy of her assessment to your registered dietitian nutritionist for review and collaboration. Testing may be ordered through Quest on your behalf. If you are seeking our NPs  advanced services feel free to discuss in detail at your appointment. Visit length is 45 minutes.
