(Our standard billing rate for a nutrition therapy initial session is $184 per hour, or $46 per 15-minute unit of time, which yields a rate of $230 for 75 minutes)
This initial therapy session allows us to start getting to know each other and helps us learn about your unique story. We’ll begin a full assessment that covers several aspects of your life experience: values, medical and mental health history, food and body story, exercise and activity, and more. We provide a brave space for you to share, and you decide what’s comfortable to share and process through. We’ll work together with you to identify your specific needs and the first steps of your nutrition therapy support plan. This is the beginning of your journey to food peace, body trust, and recovery.

Do you offer refunds?
No. Nutrition therapy services are not eligible for substitutions, exchanges, or refunds. When purchased and/or rendered, nutrition therapy services and packages are final sale.
How often will we meet? How long does this process usually take?
Your needs are unique, so length of care is highly individual and depends on your specific circumstances.
We’ll discuss the frequency and timing of nutrition therapy to best fit your needs. Usually, we’ll begin nutrition therapy with weekly sessions early on to build momentum, and then we’ll evaluate progress regularly and space out sessions when you start to hit your stride. This process takes time and introspection, and we’ll work together every step of the way!
Why is it important to work with a registered dietitian (RD) - also known as a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN)?
We believe you deserve the most quality and professional nutrition care, and that can only be found with a registered dietitian/registered dietitian nutritionist. Registered dietitians/registered dietitian nutritionists are food and nutrition experts. We have met the following criteria to earn our credentialing:
- Completed a Baccalaureate, Master’s, or Doctoral degree in the approved course work at an accredited university
- Completed a competitive and accredited supervised practice program (an internship) typically running six to twelve months in length
- Passed a national examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (RD or RDN)
- Additionally, Oklahoma requires us to be licensed (LD/LDN) by the Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision.
- Actively maintain continuing professional education requirements
Please note there is no standard definition for “nutritionist”. Only when “nutritionist” appears alongside “registered dietitian” does it indicate a professional designation.
Why is it important to work with a Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor?
Intuitive Eating is a behavioral model guided by principles—not a diet driven by rules and regulations. It’s imperative that this process be upheld and regarded with respect and not diluted by diet culture.
To ensure the integrity of the Intuitive Eating process, the originators of this approach created a standardized training and certification program for professionals. Certified Intuitive Eating Counselors are qualified to provide Intuitive Eating counseling, and we’ve met the following criteria to earn our certification:
- Completed and passed the Intuitive Eating course and exam
- Completed the Intuitive Eating PRO teleseminar training course
- Completed and passed the The Intuitive Eating Workbook and exam
- Completed supervision/coaching sessions with either of the originators of Intuitive Eating, Elyse Resch, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S, FAND and Evelyn Tribole, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S
Why is it important to work with an Eating Disorder Specialist?
Eating disorders are biopsychosocial disorders, meaning they have a biological, psychological, and sociocultural component. They’re a mental and physical illness that can affect every organ system in the body. It’s imperative in eating disorder treatment to have a multidisciplinary care team to ensure a full and safe recovery. The care team supports individuals in recovery by monitoring organ systems, mental health, nutrition rehabilitation, and more. Full recovery is possible, and a registered dietitian who specializes in eating disorders is crucial to a complete and sustainable recovery.
Currently, Sydney Cavero-Egúsquiza is pursuing her Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS) Certification and receives supervision from an iaedp-approved supervisor (she’s less than 400 hours away from this 2,500 hour certification! 🥳). When providing care to an individual in eating disorder recovery, she regularly communicates with the other members of the individual’s care team (such as their physician, therapist, and psychiatrist). This communication fosters a relationship for the team members to work together and provide quality care to the individual in recovery.
Can I utilize nutrition therapy services at Simply You Nutrition if I don't live in Oklahoma?
Hi neighbor! Unfortunately this one’s a “no”. Simply You Nutrition clinicians are licensed to provide nutrition therapy only to residents of Oklahoma and are unable to provide nutrition therapy to individuals residing outside of Oklahoma.
