First Sessions

First sessions are approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour long where your assigned advisor will get to know you, your lifestyle, goals you have for yourself, and build a sense of trust between you and them. By the end of the session, most clients walk away with a S.M.A.R.T goal* that they’ve created with the assistance of the advisor to work on until the next scheduled meeting.

*Most advisors will have the client fill out a 3-day food log as part of or in addition to their goal so they can get a better sense of the client’s eating habits but this is dependent on the situation

Follow-up Sessions

Sessions range anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the client’s needs. Here, the goals set in the first session will be revisited and options for next steps explored. While the number of follow-up sessions is determined between the client and advisor, most people meet once or twice more after the first session.
