Dietitian Coaching: How to Launch and Grow A Private Practice

Dietitian Coaching

We are now offering 1:1 dietitian coaching to help you get started on launching your private practice! There is no long-term commitment and dietitian coaching is booked by the hour. I often help RDs get started on Practice Better, work on developing services/packages and pricing, creating forms, automating processes, invoicing, dealing with insurance claims etc.

I truly can’t believe it’s been four years since I launched Gut Healthy Dietitian. Initially launched as a very part-time virtual private practice, Gut Healthy Dietitian has grown beyond my wildest dreams. If you are considering starting a private practice, the single biggest piece of advice I can give you is just to start! It is not going to be perfect, and it doesn’t need to be – you will learn as you go. My biggest regret will always be not starting sooner.

I have learned so much over the past four years. We are now a team of four dietitians providing virtual and in-person services at our clinic on campus at Western University. During this time I have had two babies, hired and grown a team, experimented with various paid marketing tools, completely revised my website, significantly expanded our services, incorporated the business and more. I have learned so much! Click here for my official guide to launching a dietitian private practicing, including my ten first steps.

Dietitian Clinical Supervision

Clinical supervision is a way to support dietitians through professional development within a supportive relationship. Dietitians often work in silos, as the only dietitian at their workplace, which can lead to a lack of support and direction, especially at early stages in your career. More and more dietitians are pursuing independent practice and opening their own virtual or in-person practice. While amazing, starting your own private practice can be overwhelming, particularly if you are a new dietitian.

Through clinical supervision, we share clinical, organizational, developmental, and emotional experiences in a secure and confidential environment. This helps promote high ethical standards and develop clinical expertise, and address client issues in an objective manner.

Choosing to pursue clinical supervision will allow you to reflect, learn and grow in skills and confidence as a dietitian. Supervision will be offered virtually (via a secure platform) and individually (1:1).

Why Me?

All clinical supervision will be offered by Kelsey Russell-Murray, the founder of Gut Healthy Dietitian. With over ten years of clinical experience as a Registered Dietitian, I have worked in all clinical areas, including hospital, family health team (outpatient counselling), home care and long-term care. Additionally, I have founded a successful private practice that offers a variety of virtual and in-person services, employs a growing number of Registered Dietitians, and continues to expand.

I have experience in a vast range of nutrition conditions and clinical situations. I can provide clinical expertise and help guide you through strengthening your clinical skills and knowledge, as well as inform you of valuable resources and networking opportunities. My aim in providing supervision is to improve both your confidence and your clinical skills and knowledge. I will provide honest and genuine feedback and guidance and allow you to direct the focus of your supervision.
