FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How is your program set up?
Sarah Voth is an outpatient registered dietitian who specializes in recovery from disordered eating, body image concerns, and chronic dieting. FLOURISH is the name of Sarah's outpatient private practice. Sarah routinely consults with and refers clients to a few other specialized clinicians in private practice, listed on this website in "Clinicians Partnered with FLOURISH." They have their own private practices, and can be contacted via their websites.
Do I have to be located in Washington or Oregon State for virtual care?
Yes. Sarah is able to see clients who are physically located in WA or OR state at the time of their appointment. Sarah has limited her scope of virtual care to just these states, and will not be able to see clients virtually who are located outside of these areas, such as Canada or the surrounding United States.
Are you an IOP (Intensive outpatient program?)
No. Traditional IOP programs will provide around 6-15 hours of treatment throughout the week, including group therapy, psychotherapy, and nutrition therapy. These programs are ideal for clients stepping down from a higher level of care, or who need to increase the amount of support from outpatient care.
What is Outpatient therapy?
Outpatient therapy (OP) is considered the 'lowest level of care' for eating disorder treatment, and is ideal for medically stable clients, with no active or passive suicidality, fair to good motivation for recovery, and ability to follow/work towards some structure with nutrition and movement. Flourish is an outpatient private practice providing nutrition therapy to clients anywhere from monthly 1-hour appointments up to 2x weekly depending on a client's individual goals and need for support.
What do I need to verify with my insurance?

How does my insurance cover Virtual Nutrition Therapy Sessions?
Much like in-person session, this coverage is unique to your plan. You will want to phone the 1-800 number on the back of your insurance card and check on your coverage prior to scheduling. Many insurance companies cover virtual appointments similarly/the same as in-person. You can use this handy Insurance Script to figure out your coverage.
I've never done a virtual appointment, I'm worried about feeling a lack of human connection that an in-person appointment provides. What if I don't want to do virtual appointments?
I would've been asking this same question not too long ago! Up until having to make the difficult decision of moving my appointments to virtual in March 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, I would've said "in person meetings" were hands down my preference. Now after having had many client sessions virtually, I feel grateful that we live in an age with this accommodation! My advice would be to "try it on" for size, and see how you feel after an appointment.
Still not a fan of tele-health? That's totally fine! Please check back for an in-person appointment at a later date. In the meantime, I will be closely watching for public health updates and consulting with other practitioners about the best time to resume in-person sessions.
