What are the advantages of virtual counseling?
Virtual counseling allows for you to receive nutrition counseling from the comfort of your own home while still complying to HIPPA regulations. It also allows for quick sessions between activities of our busy lives.

What is your cancellation policy?
If you need to cancel or reschedule, please give Whitney Larsen Nutrition 24 hours notice to avoid the $40 cancellation fee. If appointments are able to be rescheduled during the same week of the cancelled appointment, cancellation fee will be waived.
