We cater our services to our clients needs. Please speak with one of our Registered Dietitians to learn more about which package is right for you.
We are currently in network with Cigna (NY & FL) and Aetna (NY).
For out-of-network benefits, please call the number on the back of your card. Ask the representative:

Starting your Journey to Health
We offer a 1, 3, 6 and 12 month package and can help you decide which is the right path to health for you.

We offer a free consultation to discuss your health goals and motivation for change. We find that a symbiotic client relationship produces the greatest results.
Registered Dietitians translate the science of nutrition and apply this knowledge to help improve the health of people. All dietitians are nutritionists, but not all nutritionists are dietitians. The term “dietitian” is well-regulated and requires a nutrition and food science degree, supervised practice training and credentialing to declare themselves as a Registered Dietitians.
Halcyon dietitians stay up to date with nutrition science and only provide recommendations based on current research. We practice using a client centered approach, meaning our clients are autonomous decision makers.
Halcyon Health is first and foremost a nutrition counseling service. Unlike apps like Noom and LooseIt, we provide recommendations based on your unique needs. We utilize the Healthie app to provide tools, like food journaling, between session chat, metric tracking, and goal setting.
The future is here and that means telehealth has taken the forefront in providing convenient patient care. We still get to see your beautiful faces and you see ours. We love seeing our clients in the comfort of their own home (or in their car or office) and they love showing us what’s in their kitchen!
