    The True Value of Supervision for Dietitians with Elyssa Toomey

    The True Value of Supervision for Dietitians with Elyssa Toomey

    I absolutely loved recording this episode with Elyssa Toomey. Elyssa is the Nutrition director here at Pursuing Private Practice. She also works within my private practice, Eat With Knowledge, as both a clinician and a supervisor.
    We know how important supervision is, so we wanted to record an episode together to talk about the benefits of supervision, not only individual supervision, but group and peer supervision as well.
    I truly feel that supervision is key to growing as a professional and as a human being.
    Some of the topics discussed include:
    Why supervision is helpful for your business What you can expect to gain from supervision How supervision helps with your client retention For more information, visit https://www.pursuingprivatepractice.com/84
