You can’t live a full life on an

empty stomach

Empathetic & weight-inclusive nutrition counseling for those looking to make healthy behavior changes without diets

Imagine never going on another diet or counting  calories or carbs ever again.

It’s exhausting to obsess about food and exercise every day.

Or to cycle through trying every diet under the sun, but nothing seems to “work.”

But, that’s because diets aren’t meant to work.

They are meant to keep us in the cycle of restrict-binge-feel guilty and repeat.

My hope for you is that you can break free from the struggle with food that often leaves you feeling hopeless, frustrated and confused about what to do next.

I know you dream about the day that you can wake up and not obsess about what you are going to eat that day or how you are going to exercise to ‘make up’ for it.

Luckily, there is another way

Hi, I’m Courtney

Dietitian, Intuitive Eating Counselor, Food Therapist, Body Image Coach

As someone who specializes in Intuitive Eating nutrition counseling and body acceptance work, I am passionate about helping others break free from diet culture and disordered eating habits, while still being able to address their nutrition concerns.

My goal for clients is for them to learn more about their own relationship with food and their body. Then, we can work together toward creating habits around nourishment from food instead of restriction.

In order to ensure that I am being inclusive and flexible, if you would prefer to inquire about services in a way other than over the phone (such as email), I am happy to accommodate those requests.

I believe that YOU are the expert of your body

I believe that health is more than how much you weigh on the scale

I believe that you deserve to have a dietitian who is compassionate

Common Questions

Where is your office located?

All sessions are held via HIPAA compliant Zoom.

What is a Registered Dietitian?

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.

Will my health insurance cover Dietitian Nutritionist services?

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. Please click here to learn more.

What forms of payment does Vickery Wellness accept?

Vickery Wellness only accepts online payments via Stripe once it is scheduled through Practice Better.

What should I expect?

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.

What is Intuitive Eating?

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.

Can I still work with you if I want to lose weight?

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.

Who should work with Courtney?

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.

Do you help people in eating disorder recovery?

Yes. I can help adults & college students who are 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!

What are your rates?

My hourly rate starts at $200.

How do I know if I have an eating disorder?

Only a medical professional can diagnose an eating disorder, but you can use this tool here to see if you should seek help.
