Nutrition Counselors

Individual Diet Counseling
Nutrition is a critical component of one's overall wellness. With so many unhealthy food choices available in our culture, it can sometimes become difficult to discern what we should and shouldn't consume. If you would like assistance with your diet therapy strategies, the SRWC can help. Our nutrition counselors are all upper-level students majoring in nutrition who will be glad to assist you with your nutritional questions. All counseling materials, strategies, and counseling techniques will be approved by Sheila Jones, PhD, RD, LD (Registered and Licensed Dietitian) A 30 minute session costs only $10 and may be purchased at the Member Services Desk in the SRWC. Prior to your visit, please select and email the nutrition counselor of your choice. In your email, tell the counselor when you will be able to meet them for nutrition counseling. Please include specifics about items you would like to discuss in your session. The counselor will send you an email with your confirmation of the appointment. For more information about Nutrition Counseling please contact Sheila Jones.
