About Me

Personality:

When you first meet Julia, you will find she is incredibly personable, professional and easily relatable. Julia has a soft and calming demeanor - you will immediately feel at ease while working with her.

Background:

Julia is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who earned her Master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition from New York University, where she also completed her dietetic internship. Throughout her graduate studies, Julia discovered her passion for private counseling while working alongside reputable dietitians in New York City. More recently, she has gained extensive experience in medical nutrition therapy while treating an array of health conditions at Stamford Health, New York Presbyterian, and Mount Sinai Beth Israel. She has been providing individual nutrition counseling for several years and has a talent for empowering her clients to make permanent behavioral changes. She focuses on nutrition recommendations that are digestible, effective and realistic.

Julia is also passionate about helping women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and other hormonal imbalances. As someone who struggled with her own PCOS symptoms, Julia can empathize with those who may feel confused, overwhelmed, and frustrated with managing this condition.

She believes there is much more to nutrition than what someone eats and nothing rivals feeling healthy from the inside out!

Specialties:

Eating Disorders (AN, BED, BN, OSFED)/ Disordered Eating, Body Dysmorphia, Weight Management, Weight Loss, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease (High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol), Gastrointestinal Disease (IBD, IBS, Celiac Disease, GERD, Constipation and Diarrhea), Celiac Disease

Counseling Philosophy:

Julia effectively counsels her clients using an integrative, whole person approach to nutrition. In her sessions, Julia addresses all dimensions of an individual’s life and considers all factors that influence your health & wellness (ie: sleep habits, stress & energy levels, physical activity, water intake, hormonal balance, etc). She provides personalized and science-backed recommendations with the main goal of helping her clients live a nutritious, well-balanced, and sustainable lifestyle. Instead of omitting food groups and living an ‘all-or-nothing’ mentality, Julia helps her clients focus on what they can add to their plate to bring back the joy in eating and create realistic, nourishing & satisfying meals.

Affiliations:

Julia is an active member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) and the Greater New York Dietetic Association. She is also an active member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals Foundation.

Personal Interests:

In her free time, you will likely find Julia cooking in the kitchen. Otherwise, known as her ‘happy place.’ She also loves to try new NYC restaurants, take a walk with a friend, listen to a great podcast, and spend quality time with friends and family!

Reviews

Julia was not only helpful she was also compassionate. She understood my dietary problems and the distress they were causing me. She suggested various remedies that are helping as we work on them. I certainly think a vist with Julia will help ease your mind and put you on the right track.

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.
