This content was provided by Valerie Schonberg "Philosophically, my practice is based on providing individuals with honest, evidence-based and un-faddish information about food, eating and weight to assist you in making informed decisions about your health. Everyone I work with begins with 2 sessions: a 90-minute initial assessment and 60-minute follow-up. In the initial nutrition assessment, I want to learn about you and "your story." Health information is gathered and we discuss your current nutritional status, what your past experiences have been and your goals. In the second session (scheduled approximately 1-2 weeks after initial visit), we will review your personal nutrition program, individualized based on your short and long term goals discussed in the initial session. Your packet will include recipes, meal planning suggestions, handouts, resources, and behavioral tools tailored to support you on your journey to optimal health. After this session, we can determine what is needed for your ongoing support. "
