Amanda Villescas, RDN, Body-Inclusive Virtual Nutrition Counseling

BIO 

I'm Amanda - a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist & Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor with a passion for helping others develop more peaceful relationships with food and their bodies.  I'm also passionate about making this type of health & wellness support more accessible by offering low-cost, virtual nutrition therapy sessions.

My nutrition therapy approach is anti-diet, body-inclusive, and has been shaped by the Intuitive Eating principles.

When working together, we’ll explore habits and behaviors that honor hunger & fullness, cultivate balanced nourishment, and encourage eating with flexibility and mindfulness.

I hope to share fresh insight and therapeutic nutrition interventions that empower you to tune into your needs from a place of curiosity and self-compassion, rather than judgment or shame.  My goal is to provide gentle guidance that enables you to experience improved overall health & well-being, as well as a deeper sense of embodiment.

Please be encouraged to know that my nutrition therapy recommendations never include the prescription of a calorie restricted meal plan.  In focusing on health and well-being, the emphasis of HAES-informed nutrition  counseling is not on weight/weight loss, but rather on sustainable, health-promoting behaviors.  However, discussion of weight concerns, if the client desires, can certainly be honored & included as a component of our nutrition therapy sessions.

Education and training:
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Madonna University and completed my dietetic internship at Harper University Hospital in coordination with the Detroit Medical Center. For over 15 years I've been practicing as an RDN, with extensive experience in both clinical and wellness work.

Contact information, location, scheduling, fees, etc.
-->please note that I have recently relocated to Melbourne, Australia! The time difference actually typically works well for those residing in the US, as late afternoon/evening appointments are primarily available, Monday-Thursday.  
Sunday evenings may also be an option for those in need of a weekend time slot. 
*Virtual 1:1 nutrition therapy sessions are conducted via Google Meet
 
**The best way to schedule an appointment at this time is to email me directly:  
amanda@radicalwell-beingcenter.com (so as to avoid any international phone charges ;)
**FEES:
Unfortunately, I am not able to bill insurance right now.
--> initial nutrition consult session (60 minutes).....$60 USD
--> follow-up sessions (~45 minutes).....$35
--> package deal (initial consult + three follow-up sessions).....$150
 
EMAIL SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE
-->Rather than scheduling set meeting times, chatting online, etc, this option is for folx who would like the opportunity to have a person/space to share, ask questions, receive support in a way that allows for both the patron and myself the time to process information a bit more casually, without using a digital telehealth platform. It's a great way to keep dialogue going and a good way for me to provide resources in a timely manner.  I will do my best to typically respond to emails within 1-3 business days.
Cost is $50 per month, and subscribers may cancel at any time.
*Currently accepting all payments through Venmo or Paypal
 
FOOD & BODY SUPPORT GROUP
-->Tentative start date for our next 8-week series is early-mid September, with only 10 spots available!  The discussion framework of this interactive group will be guided by the Intuitive Eating Workbook.  
Please reach out to Amanda via email if you are interested in participating in this upcoming virtual support group.
