NUTRITION AND DIETARY THERAPY AND CLINICAL NUTRITION CONSULTATIONS
Whether you are looking to completely change your diet, manage a medical condition, make more informed food choices or get inspiration for new, healthy recipes, there are many benefits to be gained by working with a professional Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist.
Only a registered dietitian (RD) or registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) has completed the multiple layers of education and training established by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. At Capital Counseling, you are assured of the highest level of nutrition counseling.
