Dietitian Mentoring Services:
Vanessa values and enjoys providing mentoring and supervision to Registered Dietitians/Nutritionists (RDNs), medical and mental health providers. For more than 10 years in her recent leadership education roles at Boston Childrens’ Hospital, her positions included the development and oversight of the competencies and education standards for dietitians, fellows and students training and working in pediatric and adolescent health. Some of her favorite work in those roles were the ones spent in supervision and mentoring dietitians and students.
She currently offers clinical supervision and mentoring both in person in her private practice and via phone or video sessions. Each session is individualized based on the needs of the clinician; however commonly discussed topics include:
-clinical case discussion and review
-nutrition education and counseling strategies
-the business of private practice
-the development of practice policies for outpatient care
-setting boundaries for self-care in clinical work
-challenges in clinical and/or professional collaboration
Vanessa considers ongoing mentoring, clinical support and supervision an essential part of her own education, practice and personal wellness in this work.
