Hi, I'm Jennifer McGurk!
Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian and Clinical Supervisor to other dietitians.
I’m the CEO of Pursuing Private Practice and on a mission to help dietitians grow a business based on a non-diet approach to health and wellbeing.
I believe that we have the skills to help create change for our clients, but so much of the time we just don’t feel confident in our counseling ability. So many others sell diet culture, but we know diets don’t work long-term and that Intuitive Eating can heal someone’s relationship with food. This philosophy is truly life-changing and YOU ARE READY to do this important work with clients.
I originally created a course “Feel Fabulous About Food” to sell to clients back in 2018. As soon as it was released, many healthcare professionals contacted me and asked me if they could take it too. That’s when I got the idea to create a version for dietitians and professionals.
Help Your Clients Feel Fabulous About Food was created specifically for healthcare professionals to support their clients with the principles of Intuitive Eating, Health at Every Size®, eating disorder recovery, and body positivity.
I’ve translated all of my knowledge and expertise (and work with my clients!) into this course for YOU to help YOUR clients. And I’m so happy to have gotten support through this process from the dietitians at my group private practice, Eat With Knowledge. We are a team of dietitians ready to help you change the work you do as a dietitian!
THIS COURSE HAS FOUR MAIN SECTIONS THAT WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO HELP YOUR CLIENTS:
- Reconnect with their body and brain
- Notice hunger and satiety cues
- Own and observe their feelings
- Work on challenging their entire well-being
