How Do I Book A Session?
Email me (kelly[@]kellyboaz[.]com), and I will find a time that works for you. If you have any questions, I am happy to answer them via email.
Where Are You Located?
My office is in the Annex neighborhood of Toronto, just steps from Spadina Station.
What If I Don’t Live In Toronto?
I’m happy to offer Skype sessions from wherever you are to where I am.
Do You Offer A Sliding Scale?
Yes. If you are a student with limited means, or have a low income, let me know. I do my best to accommodate all needs, because everyone deserves help.
What Forms Of Payment Do You Accept?
If you’re paying in person, I can take cash or cheque. I can also accept E-Transfers, and PayPal.
Are You Covered By Insurance?
Certain insurance providers cover my services. I’m happy to go over your policy with you and see if yours applies. Unfortunately, OHIP does not cover my services.
What Does “Holistic Nutritionist” Mean?
Different places have different standards for use of the term holistic nutritionist. In Ontario, “Holistic Nutritionist” is a term reserved for those with CNP or RHN designations. I am a CNP – Certified Nutritional Practitioner. This means I went to school for holistic nutrition and passed all my course work (with first-class honors, in my case, but who’s keeping track?).
To me, being a holistic nutritionist means working to your specific needs. I pay attention to what’s going on in your body, and how everything works together – your food, your lifestyle, your internal-workings. There is no one-size-fits-all way of eating that works for everyone, so we’ll work together to figure out what’s right for you. I don’t believe in detoxes or restrictive eating – all foods are welcome in my practice.
What Should I Bring To A Session?
Bring your completed Client Intake Form (Kelly will send it to you upon booking your first session), a notebook & pen, your schedule (for booking follow-up appointments). Also, if you’re paying by cash or cheque, bring that along.
What Will A First Session Look Like?
Generally, most first sessions look the same. You’ll tell me about yourself, why you’re seeing me, and what you hope to get out of our work together. I’ll ask you a million questions (give or take a few hundred thousand), to get a more detailed picture of what’s going on for you. You can decline to answer anything.
Once I’ve got a good idea of what’s happening in your life, we’ll work together to find a starting point that works for you. I try not to make too many changes the first session – I want to set you up for success!
How Often Do I Come In?
Again, that’s up to you. Some people see me once a week, some people see me once a month. Whatever works best for your needs (health, schedule, budgetary, etc.)
Will You Work With My Therapist/Can You Recommend A Therapist?
Especially with eating disorder clients, it’s helpful for me to have contact with your therapist so we can best serve your needs. I will never do this without your written consent, which you may withdraw at any time.
If you need a therapist, there are a few who I can recommend. Talk with me about your therapeutic needs, and I can find you a good fit!
If you’re a therapist looking to collaborate, shoot me an email! We can set up a phone chat or tea date to see if we “click”.
