About Me

Personality:

When you meet Margot you will instantly feel at ease. Margot is warm, empathetic, kind, patient, and welcoming. Her patients feel heard, and leave her sessions with actional steps to make realistic improvements towards their health goals. You’ll love talking to Margot, and getting guidance with her judgment free approach.

Background:

Margot is a fertility nutritionist-dietitian who specializes in IVF nutrition as well. She graduated Cum Laude with her Bachelors in Communication from Fairfield University in 2012 and spent the next several years working for technology companies in marketing and account management. In 2017 Margot decided to pursue her passion and went back to school to become a Registered Dietitian. Margot earned her Masters in Science with a Concentration in Food and Nutrition from Framingham State University, where she completed clinical, foodservice, and community nutrition internships with the Department of Veteran Affairs and the YMCA. Upon graduating, Margot worked for a Weight and Wellness clinic at Signature Healthcare where she used motivational interviewing to help her clients make sustainable changes and improvements to their health. 

Margot struggled with a hormonal condition, as well as additional complications that led her to needing fertility treatments and eventually doing IVF. Luckily, she was able to get pregnant on her first transfer with her beautiful baby girl. Through her struggles, Margot became passionate about fertility nutrition and learning about various hormonal conditions that can lead to fertility issues. Margot is a great resource for those struggling with infertility as she can certainly empathize and provide nutrition counseling to support you throughout your journey. 

Margot understands that nutrition is just one piece of the puzzle, and will work with her patients on behavioral change and mindset shifts to make sustainable and realistic improvements. 

Counseling Philosophy:

Margot takes a personalized, judgment free, anti-diet approach in her counseling. Margot considers the whole-body to help uncover the root cause of health issues by addressing not just diet, but also sleep, stress, hormonal imbalances, movement, comorbidities and body image. She doesn’t believe in strict diets or cutting out food groups, but instead focusing on what we can add to your diet to help you feel better and work towards sustainable change. Margot believes food should be loved, not feared, and her goal is to help you build a healthy relationship with food and body through gentle nutrition and intuitive eating.

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.
