Step One

Please review all the New Client Q&As below before completing the New Client Application.

As many of my clients have said, “seeing a dietitian is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.”

If you’re confused or overwhelmed with managing the nutrition aspect of CKD, a dietitian can assist you in figuring out what’s actually the best diet for you. No more Google searching, wondering if you’ve got it right or not. You don’t have to do it alone.

I am a Certified Specialist in Renal Nutrition (CSR), meaning I am Board Certified to provide nutrition care for people with kidney disease. For 6+ years I have worked with this population exclusively as well as passing a national board exam, so I know the unique challenges of kidney disease in and out.

There is unfortunately lots of outdated information out there, so you can be assured that by working with me you’ll be getting the most accurate and up-to-date information that will truly be a game changer for your kidney health. I’ve met too many people who were unfortunately led astray or following an overly restrictive diet after receiving information from someone who didn’t know the current nutrition science for optimal kidney health. I can promise you I will never lead you astray.

I can help clients in any stage of kidney disease looking to get serious about better nutrition for healthier kidneys.

This includes CKD stages 1-5, ESRD (dialysis), or post-kidney transplant.

NOTE: If you are on dialysis (or starting dialysis soon) please keep in mind that each dialysis facility is required to have a dietitian on staff. You should first consult with your facility dietitian regarding diet modifications for end stage kidney disease. If you feel you could benefit from the support & resources this program offers, you can still be considered as an applicant for my program, but please know these services will not be covered/reimbursed by your insurance.

As a new client, you’ll join this program for a minimum commitment of 3 months.

During this time we’ll communicate on a weekly basis, and these frequent touchpoints allow us to work together closely on implementing new habits, ability to troubleshoot challenges or barriers, and then (woohoo!) begin to see some results! Working on your nutrition is a process and results will not happen overnight, please don’t expect them to.

Once we get to 3 months there is an option to extend & continue working together. Most of my clients work with me for at least 6 months!

As a new client, you’ll need to go into this process expecting that it will take some time to feel comfortable with your new habits, and know that it will likely take some time to see significant changes in your lab results.

Many of my clients do report improved energy levels within the first few weeks, and most will soon report improved confidence in their food choices as well. My clients also typically experience improved labs, such as a lower creatinine, improved GFR, better control of potassium and phosphorus, better blood pressure control, and improved blood sugar levels.

Many of my clients have also made great process towards their weight goals – either weight loss or gain.

When you join The Kidney Vitality Method you’ll get access to a variety of resources to supplement your learning, including:

  • A custom nutrition plan tailored to your exact nutritional needs & goals
    • 1 x 60-min initial call and 3 x 30 minute follow-up calls to develop and fine-tune your plan
    • Ongoing private chat messenger support between calls
  • Weekly Zoom “Office Hours” for education & support
  • Custom weekly meal plans, including recipes and grocery lists
  • Access to my self-paced course, Kidney Nutrition Foundations, full of on-demand education and resources
  • Access to a secure client portal where you can upload labs/documents

If you can find at least 15-20 minutes per day on average to devote to your nutrition goals, you will find success in this program.

This program has a LOT of content (a past client compared it to a college level course on kidney nutrition!) but we work on it in realistic, bite size pieces together over a period of 3 months. We’ll set small goals for you to focus on during our 1:1 time, and you will also spend time completing lessons in the learning portal, most of which take 8-15 minutes to finish.

The biggest time investment is the weekly live coaching call, which typically lasts 45-60 minutes. You can attend live or view it as a recording.

I accept FSA/HSA or self pay for your investment in this program.

If you have Medicare or BCBS, we may be able to use your benefits to cover the 1:1 counseling portion of this program!

Investment in this program is $447.00/month x 3 months or $1,206.90 (10% paid-in-full savings) for the entire 3-month program.

I’m also happy to offer equitable pricing options as of May 2023! If you have a fixed income or other financial hardship, this is for you. We’ll discuss the best plan and options for you when we review your application.
