Jennifer Pereira, LPC, RD, LD
I have been a Registered Dietitian since 2000, and I have been in private practice since 2006. I enjoy helping my clients understand how food works in the body. This typically involves plenty of myth busting due to the vast amount of misleading information people are bombarded with constantly.
Food does not have to be so difficult, and I will help you navigate through your relationship with food and allow you to be at peace with food. I utilize intutive eating, the way your body was born to eat. This is an instinctive ability, but it is usually thwarted by our cultural messages about eating and food.
In 2013 I completed my Master's in Professional Counseling to expand my ability to help people with their relationship to food and body. It is so important to understand the psychology behind many of our food behaviors in order to normalize eating.
So many "diets" out there simply list what to eat, while the real issue is much deeper than a meal plan can address. Those types of programs may have short term "success", but the majority of the time the long term "results" are more confusion and frustration with food and body.
I am happy to provide nutrition counseling, both online as well as locally in the office. My office is located at:
7063 Comanche Trail, Austin, Texas 78732
Regular Sessions (45-55 minutes): $145
Short Sessions (30 minutes): $95
*Online or Phone Sessions also available if you are unable to come to the office.
Please note: In some cases insurance may reimburse part of your session fee. You will be provided with a form to submit to insurance at your visit. I have had many clients who were incorrectly told their insurance would not cover these visits, but they actually were reimbursed for these visits.
