Haley Goodrich, INSPIRD private practice dietitian and co-leader of the #INSPIRDtoSEEK Facebook group for nutrition entrepreneurs, joins me on this episode to talk about holding space for our clients. But first, we dive into the evolution of her business, and her own process of embracing a non-diet approach and learning how to do some uncomfortable work.
This episode touches on how we can do less harm and more good by addressing our egos, our expectations, and our learned behaviors that suggest we have to have "The Fix" and provide tangible takeaways every time—and changing that approach. Instead, we are learning to be present with another person and their story, without always having (or needing) a solution.
We touch on thin and body privilege, weight stigma, expanding your business, and starting to see how weight inclusive practices apply beyond nutrition therapy and into the world around us.
