Meet face-to-face with Nicole during private nutrition counselling sessions to discuss your nutritional needs, and create strategies to meet your goals. Individual sessions, and packages are available.
1. Are Registered Dietitian services covered?
In Ontario, all insurance companies offer Registered Dietitian services as a reimbursable benefit. Check with your employer if they have included this benefit in their insurance package. Plans may include these services under a “health spending account”. If you or your spouse’s employer provides a benefits plan, you may be eligible for up to $1000.00 annually. Registered Dietitian counselling is also exempt from HST and is tax deductible.
2. How do I book an appointment?
Nicole accepts Physician referrals, however a referral isn’t needed to schedule an appointment.

3. What payment methods are accepted?
All services must be paid for in full at the first appointment. I accept cash, cheque, credit card or e-transfer. Nutrition services are charged directly to the client as we are not able to directly bill insurance companies. A detailed receipt will be provided for you, that you can submit to your insurance provider.
4. How do the packages work?
Most clients benefit from regular visits with a Registered Dietitian. My packages offer you a cost savings, compared to the pay-as-you go option, and offer additional value (including complimentary customized meal plans, option for body composition analysis, grocery store tour and access to Craving ChangeTM activities). If you are booking a package online, please select a date for your initial consultation. Follow-up dates will be chosen at the initial appointment. For my larger packages, clients have the option to pay in two equal payments. Packages are valid for 1 year.
5. Can you make me a meal plan?
Absolutely. With my packages, customized meal plan are provided. Meal plans are made according to your preferences, lifestyle and nutrient goals. High-quality images of each recipe are included in the meal plan.
Meal plans can be added on to the pay-as-you go option for an addition $15.

6. Do you weigh me at the appointment?
This is an option included only in my packages. It is up to each individual client if they would like to be weighed. If wanting to be weighed, I have a professional Tanita BC-1000 plus scale, which is a body composition monitor that uses Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology. This scale measures:
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Body Fat %
- Body Fat Mass
- Body Water %
- Muscle Mass
- Fat Free Mass
- Physique Rating
- Basal Metabolic Rate
- Daily Calorie Intake
- Metabolic Age
- Bone Mass
- Visceral Fat Rating
7. Do I need to bring anything to the appointment?
The more the better! Please bring any relevant lab work, lists of medications and/or supplements, nutrition labels and food journals to your appointment. Download my free 3-day food record template below:
