Meet The Dietitian
Kayla Stanton, MS, RDN, CDN
Hi, I'm Kayla, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) helping people find peace and thrive in a "diet crazy" world. Every day, I help my clients develop healthier and stress free relationships with food using a non-diet approach to help connect back with their bodies' natural signals and needs.
I am in the process of becoming a CEDRD (Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian) but I also specialize in helping people just like you find simple and practical ways to achieve better health, prevent or manage chronic diseases, and cut through all the noise of bad nutrition information.
You should know I am a real person living in the real world. I feed my kid chicken nuggets on busy nights, and I swing through the drive-through on busy days. I want to show you how anyone can take steps toward a healthier lifestyle no matter their current situation or past experience. Whether you hope to make a big change, take a couple baby steps, or maybe just find a little more peace in life, I'm here to help.
So...What is GOOD Nutrition?
(And how can I help you find it?)
GOOD nutrition is not just about what you eat. It is how you eat, why you eat, your feelings about food and your ability to eat it. GOOD nutrition is knowing what foods are good for your body (and mind) and having the confidence to eat them without fear, guilt, stress, or worry.
If your answer is "yes" to one or more of the questions below,
contact me so we can work together to put the good back into your nutrition!
Treatment for Disordered Eating
Do thoughts of restricting food or dieting seem to dominate your life?
Do you have intense feelings of guilt or feel the need to compensate after eating?
Do you find yourself eating in secret? Or do any of your eating habits feel out of your control?
Are you working toward a new goal or wanting to set a better example for your children?
Does chronic disease run in your family or have life circumstances put you at a higher risk to develop one?
Chronic Disease Management
Have you been struggling to follow condition-related nutrition guidelines?
Do you feel overwhelmed by the amount of changes you need to make to control your condition?
*Out of pocket cost may vary according to insurance benefits
*Flexible session and package options available based on need
If financial hardship may impact your ability to receive nutrition counseling, flexible scheduling, packaged rates, and in some cases, reduced rates are available to help reduce cost. Please let me know, and I would be happy to explain available options.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Registered Dietitian?
Anyone can call themselves a "nutritionist" even without formal qualifications or experience. Someone who only calls themselves a nutritionist may be practicing without any governing body to hold them accountable.
Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RD/RDN) are nutrition experts and health care providers who have met (at minimum) the following criteria:
Completed at least a bachelor’s degree at an accredited university
Completed an 8-12 month accredited supervised practice program.
Passed a national exam administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) and maintained active registration status
Regularly complete ethical and professional continuing educational requirements to maintain certification
Will my insurance pay for appointments with a RD/RDN?
I am an in-network provider with Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Sagamore, and UnitedHealthcare. However, many insurances will still cover services with an out of network Registered Dietitian. Prior to your appointment, be sure to call the (800) number on your card to check your benefits. They may ask if you have specific qualifying health conditions. If asked for a procedure code, provide them with 97802 & 97803.
If your insurance does not provide up- front coverage for services but does allow you to be seen by "out of network" providers, you will be provided a document called a "Superbill" following your appointment with the necessary information to submit to your insurance company, which may then reimburse you for all or part of the nutrition services provided.
