Counseling Skills for Dietitians

A COURSE BY AMY HELMS, LICENSED DIETITIAN & LICENSED THERAPIST

DO YOU WANT TO ENHANCE YOUR PRACTICE?

What about better practice outcomes?

Working smarter, not harder?

What if these tools were provided in a simple course?

Clinicians explain frustrations of working with clients that are unable to make changes despite the negative impact behaviors may have on their health.  

This frustration is experienced by both the clinician and CLIENT.  Clients change by one thing— something within themselves.  WOW, I was not taught that as I was learning biochem nor advanced MNT!  

I wanted to learn more about counseling so I went back to school.  I am here to provide you with the things I learned, minus the grad school loans (times two), the hassle of going back to school, and doing so in an interactive course. 

Let’s make your work more efficient, effective, and see your clients change becuase you have the tools to give them.  The tools that will last a lifetime.

Counseling Works!

Combining the Science and the Art

Hi! My name is Amy. I love working as both a therapist and dietitian. I want to help you gain confidence in your use of counseling skills. I am dually licensed as a dietitian and therapist. After completing my second Masters Degree and obtaining licensure for therapy, I realized how many of the same strategies used in a traditional counseling session can be applied by dietitians.

I have practiced as a dietitian for over fifteen years, working in a variety of settings from pediatric nutrition support, management, outpatient practice, and an eating disorder treatment center. I want YOU to have the tools that I have found to be effective for clients.

This course is designed for any dietitian or dietitian-to-be who wants to learn evidence-based counseling strategies. Regardless of your area of practice, a knowledge of behavior change and counseling techniques WILL improve your outcomes.

This course is for you if spouting off facts, research, and the things we learned in school are
