Sage offers a wide range of clinical services to meet the diverse needs of our clients and to ensure that your unique needs are met.
Wellness counseling gives you the support you need to begin making important changes and adjustments to your health. In the safe and supportive environment, you will be seen by a Licensed Clinical Nutritionist and Health Coach who will guide you through any difficult challenges you may face on the road to good health.
Wellness counseling is ideal for:
- Basic nutritional questions
- Counseling for new dietary changes such as vegetarian/vegan
- Lifestyle support

Cost: $115 per 1-hour appointment

Why We Don't Accept Insurance: At Sage, we give each client a high level of attention with a specialized approach that is not fully covered by insurance. If we accepted insurance, our healing model would greatly change which would affect our ability to provide the best care possible. While we do not accept insurance directly, many plans cover medical nutritional therapy (MNT), therefore you may be able to get some portion of the fee reimbursed after the fact, or you can use your Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Card for payment.
Payment Options: We accept cash, credit cards, checks and HSA/Flexible Spending Cards
