iaedp Approved Supervision for Eating Disorder Certification

As a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist and iaedp Approved Supervisor, I have the ability to provide clinical supervision to dietitians, interns and other professionals who could use guidance and support while working in this rewarding field. Professional Supervision is one of the most effective ways to develop expertise and allows our clients the benefits of multiple perspectives. When working with this population, it's not uncommon to feel stuck with a client(s). Supervision offers clinicians the opportunity to reflect on challenging cases while receiving feedback and support for their work.

Private Practice Coaching

I (kendra) started private practice when in Asheville in 2011 and now run a group practice, Nutritious Thoughts. Nutritious Thoughts consists of a handful of highly-qualified Registered Dietitians, an amazing Practice Manager and office staff.  "The startup was challenging, and no one deserves to do it on their own."  Let me share the knowledge I’ve gained, so you don’t have to make the same mistakes I did.  I have created a step-by-step guide on how to develop and grow your own successful practice.
