Clinical Supervision

Are you working towards your CEDRD credential and looking for an iaedp approved supervisor?

Are you wanting to learn more about working with clients who struggle with an eating disorder or disordered eating?

Are you looking to advance your skill set as a clinician or grow your private practice?

Sara is an IAEDP approved supervisor and can provide professional supervision to dietitians working to earn their CEDRD credential or to other clinicians (up to 5 hours of supervision) working to earn their CEDS (or other specialty equivalent) credential.

About Supervision With Sara

I use a collaborative approach to supervision. One that meets you where you’re at, considers what your goals are and what you’d like to learn or accomplish.

Together we’ll help build your skills as a clinician and help you feel more confident as a nutrition counselor.

Supervision Philosophy

The primary method I use for supervision is case consultation- where you come to supervision sessions prepared with thoughts, information, and questions about your current case load where you feel stuck, are struggling, need more support, or want to celebrate what went well. 

During supervision, we’ll also:

  • As appropriate, and based on your comfort level, include role-play or experiential activities.  
  • Clarify questions regarding Health At every Size, Intuitive Eating, a Fat positive and anti-diet approach.
  • Provide resources for further learning and guidance.
  • Discuss the importance working as a treatment team and how this can support referrals.
  • Discuss and work on the formal case study for the cedrd application as well as information as needed for the exam or to support you in the application process.
  • Discuss career goals, growing your practice and nicheing into your specialty area.
  • Explore other questions or areas that are important to you and support increasing your skills as a clinician

Supervision is scheduled for one hour and can be completed via phone, video conferencing or in person.  The cost per hour is $150.

We’ll start with the free 15 min consultation to get to know each other and make sure we’re a good fit for supervision.  I’ll send you a short (optional) questionnaire about your goals for supervision to help you prepare. We’ll review your goals, I’ll answer any questions you have, and let you know what supervision would look like during our time together.

Should you decide to move forward with supervision I’ll send over my supervision welcome packet that includes:

  1. Welcome Letter
  2. Supervision Contract

  5. Goal Setting Worksheet

About Supervision

Per IAEDP, supervision requires no less than one (1) hour of supervision per 120 hours of client contact, which equals approximately 21 minimum hours of total supervision time.  5 of those hours can also come from group supervision.

Frequency can be set based on your desire for support. Iaedp allows no more than 40 client hours per week included towards your application.  Subsequently, you could space consultation based on your client hours or your need for support.  Typically this means scheduling supervision every 2-4 weeks based on your goals and comfort level.
