About my services
What can you help me with?
I offer nutrition counseling and consults to people who want to improve their relationship with food. This includes those suffering from disordered eating or an eating disorder, including:
- Anorexia Nervosa
- Bulimia Nervosa
- Binge Eating Disorder
- Orthorexia and Compulsive exercise
- Other Specified Feeding and Eating Disorders (OSFED)
- Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)
Athletes and runners are another population I work with. I support the “everyday athlete,” help them improve their performance and feel their best. I also help athletes:
- Recover from an eating disorder
- Prevent RED-S Syndrome (Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport, formerly the Female Athlete Triad)
- Learn and apply nutrition concepts to their training plan
I also offer my nutrition services to anyone who needs help with:
- Gluten-free diet for celiac disease
- Managing food allergies
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) from a non-diet, weight neutral approach
- Digestive issues
- Co-occurring eating disorder with dietary restrictions
If you have another area you need help with nutritionally, please reach out to me and if needed I can refer you to another provider.
Who do you work with?
My main clientele is women, but I do work with men as well.
I also work with pre-teens, adolescents, and teens ages 10 and up.
I currently work with children ages 6 and up on a case-by-case basis, mainly for feeding difficulties or ARFID . Sessions with children also require the parent(s) or guardian to be present and an active participant in the nutrition counseling process.
Do you take insurance?
Yes, I am currently in-network with the following insurance companies:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Sanford Health Plan
- United Health Care (pending – effective date TBD)
- …more insurance options coming in 2023, including Medicaid (in Minnesota), Preferred One, and Ucare. Please email to receive any updates and to be added to my insurance wait-list.
If you are covered under a different insurance provider, I am able to provide an itemized receipt (called a superbill) upon request for you to submit to your insurance company. I am unable to guarantee reimbursement for services rendered. Please contact your insurance provider for questions regarding superbill reimbursement.
You are also able to use HSA funds for nutrition counseling services.

- 60 minute initial session – $175
- 45 minute follow-up session – $110

What types of payment do you accept?
Cash, check, all major credit cards, ACH transfer, PayPal, and HSA/FSA cards.
Where are you located and do you offer in-person or virtual sessions?
I’m located in Minnetonka, Minnesota, a western suburb of Minneapolis. I currently offer virtual/online sessions only through BethanyRD Nutrition.
I don’t live in Minnesota; can I still work with you?
Yes! These are the states I am currently able to accept eating disorder nutrition counseling clients from (in green):
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
- New York
- West Virginia
- New Hampshire
Depending on what state you’re located in and what you are wanting help with, we may be able to work together, even if you don’t see your state listed above! Reach out to me with your location and what you’re wanting to work on, and I will determine if I’m able to see you or help find you an alternate provider.
Can you help me lose weight?
I practice as a weight-neutral, non-diet dietitian. This means I do not prescribe weight loss diets, or encourage weight loss to be the primary focus of our work together. I encourage focusing on behaviors and habits, letting weight settle where it naturally will.
Will you write me a meal plan?
I do not give clients meal plans. I believe in teaching you the process of creating meals so you are not stuck relying on myself or another health professional to make your eating decisions for you. The exception to this rule is in the case of eating disorders; a bit more structure may be needed in the initial phases of recovery, but I will never dictate the exact foods that need to be consumed.
