Background:

Stephany is a Mid Level Registered Dietitian Associate at NYNG who offers private sessions and corporate seminars along with cooking demos. She has over 10 years of experience in nutrition counseling. At Montclair State University, she obtained a M.S. in Nutrition and Food Sciences, with a focus on Nutrition Education. And at Rutgers University, School of Biological & Environmental Sciences, she received a B.S. in Nutritional Sciences and a Certificate in the Didactic Program in Dietetics, an accredited DPD by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Stephany has completed her Dietetic Internship which includes 1200 hours of ACEND-accredited supervised practice in clinical, community, and food service nutrition. Stephany also teaches Nutrition Science Courses at Monmouth University in the Department of Chemistry and Physics. She loves having the opportunity to educate both patients and students within the community.

Counseling Philosophy:

Stephany's philosophy is centered around your personal lifestyle. The more she knows about your routine and preferences, the better she can recognize your struggles and provide solutions. With her academic background, science is ultimately the backbone to her strategies. She also incorporates functional and holistic nutrition methods to help reduce stress, inflammation, symptoms of autoimmune conditions and to support gut health. Your personalized program should be easy to follow, relevant to your lifestyle and specific to your challenges.

Affiliations:

Stephany has been an active member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics since 2013. She has even been featured in their Magazine. Aside from academy & association affiliations, Stephany has served as an ambassador for multiple nutrition & wellness brands including Shape Magazine.

Personal Interests:

Stephany has a passion for food and health blogging, so she utilizes social media to share nutrition related insights to the community. During the week she loves to experiment in her kitchen and create easy recipes that take 10-30 minutes max to prepare. On the weekend, Stephany enjoys trying different restaurants in the city, as well as spending time with family and friends.

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.
