Frequently Asked Questions

Read below for some of the most common questions we hear. To learn more about our dietitians, check out our bios here.  Please contact us if your question isn't answered!

  • I've never worked with a dietitian before. What will it be like?
    Many people we work with have never worked with a dietitian before, and are not even sure what it is that we do! That's totally okay. You can expect to meet with your dietitian once a week to start. Initial assessments are an hour long, and all follow up sessions are 55 minutes. In session we explore so many different topics relating to food, body, and movement. We are here to support you in whatever capacity you need. In sessions we might discuss foods that challenging for you, talk about hunger and fullness cues, rant about diet culture, explore your relationship with exercise, discuss body image concerns, and so much more. Sometimes our conversations are very big picture and sometimes clients come to session and ask if we can write out a grocery list together. We are truly here for what you need. You are in the driver's seat when it comes to what you want to work on and talk about. We are here to provide support, gentle feedback when you want it, and a listening ear.
  • What insurances do you accept?
    Lindsay, Daniela and Sara are currently network with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, United HealthCare, and Aetna. If you are hoping to use insurance for our sessions, please call the number on the back of your card and ask about coverage for in network nutrition therapy (CPT codes 97802 and 97803) and what diagnoses are covered. Please note that we are not in network with the following Blue Cross plans: Blue Value, Blue Home, Blue Local. If your dietitian is not in network with your insurance company, we can provide a superbill for you to submit for possible reimbursement. You can call your insurance company to ask if you have out of network benefits in this situation.
  • How much do your services cost?
    Initial assessments are $190 and all follow up appointments are $170. If you are able to use insurance benefits for our visits, they may cover 100% or you may owe a portion of the cost. It is important to call your insurance company to ask about your coverage before we meet.
  • Where do we meet?
    Lindsay meets clients via telehealth only. Daniela and Sara offer in person sessions at our office in Charlotte, NC in addition to seeing clients via telehealth.
  • Do you work with people who have eating disorders?
    Here at New Paths Nutrition, we specialize in eating disorder treatment. We work with clients who have anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, other specified feeding or eating disorder (OSFED), and avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), as well as clients who identify with having an eating disorder but haven't yet received a diagnosis.
  • Do you work with people who don't have eating disorders?
    While we specialize in eating disorders, we do work with many people who don't have an eating disorder. We recognize that disordered eating exists on a spectrum and that receiving a diagnosis for an eating disorder is not accessible to all. If you want to improve your relationship with food we would be a great fit for working together, even if you don't identify with having an eating disorder or have not received a diagnosis before.
  • Do you work with adolescents?
    Yes, we have extensive experience working with adolescents. Currently we accept clients who are 13 years and older. We provide collaborative approach that includes the client and the loved ones who are supporting them.
  • What is Intuitive Eating?
    Intuitive Eating is a non-diet paradigm created by two dietitians, Elyse Resch and Evelyn Tribole. It is a framework for eating to create a positive relationship with food. There are ten principles which include rejecting diet culture, making peace with food, and respecting your body. You can read much more about Intuitive Eating at the official website -
  • What is Health at Every Size®?
    Health at Every Size® is a movement that acknowledges that health is about so much more than the number on the scale. This approach is an alternative to the dominant weight-centric approach that focuses on weight at the cost of so many other aspects of wellbeing. The five principles are weight inclusivity, health enhancement, respectful care, eating for well-being, and life-enhancing movement. You can read more about it at the official website-
  • What if I want to lose weight?
    If you are desiring a more peaceful relationship with food but still hold a desire for weight loss, please let us reassure you that you are not alone. There are so many reasons people may want to lose weight, and we create space to explore those feelings and concerns in our sessions. As your dietitian, our aim is to help you figure out how you'd like to best care for yourself. We will support you as you explore your relationship with food and find a way of eating that works for you. We will not advocate for weight loss and will not measure your success by the number of the scale. We believe that your body is deserving of good care as it is right now. We can't guarantee any weight changes. We can guarantee that we'll be here to listen and support you every step of the way.
