About Me

You will find that talking with Cassie is like talking to a friend. She is warm and empathetic and will always be honest and open. This virtual nutritionist listens and tries to understand you as a whole person before making any recommendations. She is enthusiastic and will always be your biggest "hype man".

Background:

Cassie earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics from New York University, where she also served as starting goalkeeper and team captain on the Women’s Varsity Soccer Team. During her time at NYU, Cassie completed rigorous coursework and extensive research exploring the intersectionality of sports, eating behaviors, body image, and identity. Additionally, she worked as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor while completing her M.S. and Dietetic Internship.

Over the last four years as a Registered Dietitian, Cassie has worked in numerous settings including private practice, corporate wellness, and most recently bariatric surgery. During her time as a bariatric dietitian, she conducted considerable research and outreach to enhance her patients access to mental health resources and care. This experience helped her understand the intricacies and nuance of eating disorders and disordered eating, body image and identity, and healing a relationship with food and body.  Her nutrition philosophy and counseling style have evolved over the years as she has treated numerous patients with a wide variety of diseases and health goals.

Specialties:

Eating Disorders (binge eating disorders, compulsive overeating), Disordered and Emotional Eating, Healing relationship with food and body, Weight Management (weight loss and weight gain), Pre- and Post-Bariatric Surgery Care, Sports and Exercise Nutrition, Digestion Issues (celiac, IBS, constipation, bloating, reflux), Diabetes, Heart Disease

Counseling Philosophy

Cassie understands that nutrition is not “one size fits all.” She takes a warm and empathetic approach to meet clients where they are in their health journey, incorporating evidence-based nutrition along with mindful and intuitive eating principles to meet her client’s unique needs. She believes that nutrition is only one piece of your health, and she works to address the whole person, rather than a single problem or disease state.

Affiliations:

Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), Dietetic Practice Group for Sports and Cardiovascular Wellness, NASM Certified Personal and Group Fitness Trainer

Interests:

As a self-proclaimed foodie, Cassie loves to explore the vast restaurants New York City has to offer. She also loves cooking and finds trying new recipes to be a great creative and therapeutic outlet.  Outside of food, Cassie enjoys long walks, being in nature, and hanging out with her Russian Tortoise, Tyco.

Questions? We have answers

Will my insurance cover these sessions?
When you book an appointment, you’ll be asked to submit your insurance information. From there, you will hear back before your appointment on general coverage. While we can’t guarantee coverage (as it is always up to the insurance company), we can provide an estimate or idea of what may or may not be covered while working with your RD.
Is there anything I need to do to prepare for the sessions?
We highly recommend compleating our pre-evaluation forms. Not only is this very helpful for the RD you’ll be meeting with, but it gives you a chance to take time and think about what will really help you on this journey.

Other than that, we also encourage sending over any recent labs, food records, or referrals you received from your doctor or therapist.
How many sessions will I need with my RD?
Follow-ups are integral for progress and to get the most value from working with an RD. We don’t require or mandate any set number of follow-ups, but we do recommend meeting at least every 1 to 2 weeks for the first 3 months of your first appointment. Of course, this may not be possible for certain individuals and that’s ok too. The best part is that all treatment timelines are flexible and adjustable to fit your needs.
What if I am not satisfied or unhappy with the dietitian I am matched with?
One of the perks of working with us is that we have a variety of qualified RDs and all have their own individual techniques, specialty areas AND personalities. Nutrition can be very personal and for that reason, finding an RD who meshes with your personality is paramount. If you’re not clicking with your dietitian, you can simply message or email us and we can match you with a better fit. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if that’s the case! It’s important that you connect with the provider to see the maximum benefits.
Is it possible to ever do in-person sessions?
At this time, we are only set-up for virtual visits, except if you live close to the NYC area. Of course, if and when that changes, we will be notifying all of our clients and patients.
How does billing work?
We understand navigating insurance can be quite confusing and overwhelming. Luckily, if you’re using health insurance for your sessions, we will do all the billing for you. We submit claims to your insurance company within a few days of your appointments. Copays and deductibles are charged a few weeks later as we like to wait for the explanation of benefits to come back first before making charges. These charges can be automatically processed using the card you have on file. If you ever have additional billing questions or concerns, you can contact us at any time and someone will assist you promptly!
What happens if I need to cancel or can’t make an appointment?
Emergencies happen and we try to be as understanding and accommodating as possible. We do have a 24 hour cancellation policy in order to respect the time of our practitioners and other clients who are trying to schedule appointments as well. That said, if something unexpected or emergent comes up, we just ask that you notify us as soon as possible. Otherwise, we appreciate that you keep all your scheduled appointment times to the best of your ability.
