HOW IT WORKS

FREE CLARITY CALL

First, we will do a free 15 minute call. This will give us a chance to get to know each other, ask questions and to see if we’re the right fit to work together in my nutrition counseling program.

BOOK INITIAL SESSION

Then, if you decide to move forward, you will schedule your first session & submit payment. Next, you will receive an email to be invited to Practice Better. This is the software that I use to communicate with clients. 

COMPLETE FORMS

Before our first session, you will fill out forms in Practice Better. This will include an intake questionnaire that includes questions about your history with food, your body and your medical history.

ATTEND INITIAL SESSION

Finally, we will have our first 1 hour virtual session. During this time, we will review your relationship with food and body image, food preferences, health concerns, etc. We will then discuss your overall goals and develop a nutrition care plan tailored to your needs.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING

“I feel very fortunate to have had the privilege of working with Courtney.

She was my nutritionist when I discharged from residential treatment and played a pivotal role in helping me maintain recovery from my eating disorder.

Courtney is an incredibly caring, available, and knowledgable nutritionist.  She taught me how to properly meal plan for a busy schedule, normalize enjoying food, and harbor a healthy relationship with movement. 

She also served as a source of encouragement for me during a difficult time of transition. I have since been able to graduate from professional school, establish a career, and enjoy all that recovery has to offer.

I would not be where I am today without Courtney’s guidance and expertise, and for this I am incredibly grateful.”

– C.R., Athens, GA

“What I love most about working with Courtney over the years is her professionalism, but also her ability to connect with me as a client, making me feel my concerns were valid and that she wanted to help!

Courtney helped me to navigate through managing my appetite during a time in my life where depression was present, and more recently, helping to aid in prenatal nutrition!

Courtney is as compassionate about your health & wellness as she is caring for you like one of her own friends.

She is simply the best!”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist is a professional who has a minimum of a bachelors degree, completed 1200 hours of supervised practice through an Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) Dietetic Internship and passed a national examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). Some states, such as Georgia, require licensure as well.
Vickery Wellness, LLC does not file insurance and currently only accepts private pay clients. However, we can provide you with a super bill, which you can then submit to your insurance company on your own.
Vickery Wellness only accepts online payments via Stripe once it is scheduled through Practice Better.
1) Once you submit an appointment request for us to chat, Courtney will confirm the request. 2) After the appointment is confirmed, you will have access to the Practice Better patient portal where you will then fill out some paperwork. 3) If it is decided that you would like to move forward with nutrition counseling, you will then schedule your initial nutrition consultation after submitting payment (either over the phone or online). 4) Once the initial nutrition consultation is scheduled, you will fill out some forms. This will include waivers & agreements, medical and lifestyle history, a 3-day food recall and a questionnaire. Everything is handled through our HIPAA compliant software, Practice Better. 5) During the consultation, we will review your lifestyle habits, history with food and body image, current habits and goals. This won't be a cut and dry plan. We will begin to do the work of really understanding more about the 'why' behind some of your habits and possibly redefining what success will look like for you.
For those looking for a quick fix or a short-term diet plan or just a meal plan, this is not the best service for you. Courtney focuses on long-term lifestyle & behavioral changes that are evidenced based and suitable to your lifestyle. You will work together as a team to set realistic goals for your health and wellness.
Sure! I want to be inclusive of everyone and we can work together on a plan that is realistic and helps you to feel your best. However, I do ask that you put in the work toward a more intuitive and mindful approach to food and behavior changes. My nutrition counseling program is not weight-centric and I work best with clients who are open minded and ready to participate in the process of questioning their thoughts and behaviors around food and exercise.
Yes. I can help anyone who is in recovery from an eating disorder or wants to take preventative measures to not relapse. I cannot take clients who need a higher level of care such as inpatient or intensive outpatient. Clients who have previously done some of the work of healing their relationship with food, their body and movement are the ones who benefit the most from my nutrition counseling program. I provide guidance, support and accountability. If you aren't sure, please feel free to set up the free 15 minute clarity call!
The Intuitive Eating website describes it best: "Intuitive Eating is a self-care eating framework, which integrates instinct, emotion, and rational thought and was created by two dietitians, Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch in 1995. Intuitive Eating is a weight-inclusive, evidence-based model with a validated assessment scale and over 100 studies to date." It is based on 10 principles: 1) Reject the Diet Mentality, 2) Honor Your Hunger, 3) Make Peace with Food, 4) Challenge the Food Police, 5) Respect Your Fullness, 6) Discover the Satisfaction Factor, 7) Honor Your Feelings without Using Food, 8) Respect Your Body, 9) Exercise—Feel the Difference, 10) Honor Your Health with Gentle Nutrition.
All sessions with Courtney are currently offered virtually via Practice Better.
My hourly rate starts at $150 and I offer monthly payment plans for packages.
