FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  • 01.  Where do you meet with clients?

    I meet with clients in person at Healing Foundations, 2112 W. Belmont Ave. We can also make an appointment over the phone or video conferencing, if that’s easier.

  • 02.  Do you take insurance?

    I do not take insurance but I will provide a superbill at the end of each session. A superbill is an official receipt of services, which you can then submit to your insurance for reimbursement, depending on your personal insurance plan. Any reimbursement would then be sent directly to you.

    I do accept Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flex Spending Account (FSA).

  • 03.  How do I schedule an appointment?

    The first step for any new client is an initial consultation. This will help ensure we’re a good fit for one another, and from there, we will put together your individualized plan. To schedule your initial consultation, select the “Book an Appointment” button at the top of my site.

    Alternatively, you can send me a message through my connect page.

    After we schedule your initial consultation, you will receive a confirmation email for your appointment, including information on office policies and forms to complete ahead of time.

  • 04.  How long do you typically work with a client?

    The length of time we work together will depend on your individual needs and goals. I tend to work with people over a period of time to help them make the appropriate changes to their eating habits and health. During the initial consultation, we will determine frequency on an individual basis.

  • 05.  Do I have to buy a package?

    No, I don’t require you to buy packages. If you want to see real results, I do suggest we meet on a regular basis. You can purchase individual follow-up sessions instead of a package, if you prefer.

    Please note, email support is only available for clients who have purchased packages.

  • 06.  What forms of payment do you accept?

    I accept cash, check and credit or debit cards. Payment is due at the time of service.

TESTIMONIALS
  • "I learned a ton and she walked me through the entire process... I lost weight but more importantly I learned how to eat (properly) for the rest of my life."

    M.K., Chicago
  • "Renee is fantastic! The LEAP diet gave me my life back after having awful headaches. She's patient, kind and super smart when it comes to food and illness. I'm off headache meds completely after working with Renee!"

    Alissa G., Chicago
  • "Renee was committed to designing a practical meal plan, highlighting both positive and negative health behaviors, and helping me formulate manageable goals for myself. But most importantly, she identified the things which motivated and discouraged me better than I could have even for myself... It changed the way I viewed my relationship with myself, with others, and ultimately, with food."

    Libby S., Chicago
  • "I had always just thought I had a messed up stomach but doing the testing and being counseled by Renee truly changed my life! I would highly recommend her to anyone with food issues and especially encourage people to try the LEAP MRT testing if you frequently have stomach issues."

    Molly M., Chicago
  • "Renee is both incredibly knowledgeable about nutritional science and an empathetic listener who gives great, practical advice. She helped me to understand the root of my relationship with food, and worked with me to set goals that resulted in the creation of positive, lasting habits."

    T.K., Chicago
  • "I suffered from stomach problems since I was a kid. After an especially awful stomach experience, I decided to look into dietitians to see if I could identify what foods were making me sick. I went to Renee in March 2013, I am so glad I found her. I had no idea that I could feel this...normal. Working with Renee has drastically improved the quality of my life. I'm so grateful to her!"

    Jill Y., Chicago
  • "Over the last month I've been working with Renee, I've seen more results than I had in three months on my own... I can honestly say that she's helped me figure out a way eat healthfully for the rest of my life. You rock, Renee!"

    Britt C., Chicago
