Why I created the Liberated Clinician

Alissa Rumsey dietitian business coach (1)
Hi, I'm Alissa Rumsey (she/her), a dietitian, nutrition therapist, intuitive eating counselor, and the author of Unapologetic Eating.

As a dietitian for over 14 years, who build a business from scratch and transitioned from a weight-centric approach to a weight-inclusive approach all within a year and a half, I know first-hand how challenging entrepreneurship can be.

Especially when you’re swimming against the tide when it comes to cultural beliefs about body size, weight, nutrition, and health.
And even more so when you are part of a culture and profession that is all about you getting it “right” all the time.

Since I started my business over 8 years ago I've felt overwhelmed, lonely, confused, and questioning if this was the right path.

I've felt "imposter syndrome", had confidence issues, a never-ending (NEVER ENDING) to-do list, and regularly have thought: “Should I just go back to what I was doing before?”. 

It. Was (and still Is). A. lot.

So over the years, I continued to take and join a variety of anti-oppressive business training courses, counseling skills training programs, accountability groups, and year-long feminist mastermind groups.

I learned so much in all of these settings but was left wishing that I could integrate pieces of all of them into one program that was built specifically for dietitians and health professionals.

I specifically wanted a space where...

You can learn and talk about business building, through a weight-inclusive, justice-informed lens. 
You can get support for the loneliness, the confusion, the imposter syndrome, the confidence issues, the burnout. 
You can be held in compassion, able to show up as your full self, while being held accountable and pushed to consider other perspectives, to grow and change in a way that aligns with your values and makes you a better clinician. 

And that’s what The Liberated Clinician

is all about.

...the perfect facilitators, holding space for safety, joy, authenticity, and business smarts.

 

I came into TLC overwhelmed, looking for some business coaching, accountability, a safe space, and community. I got all that, and more! After the program, I ran my first ever clinician-focused cohort, among so many other wins. The guest speakers, accountability buddy set-up, and mastermind calls were extremely helpful. Alissa is incredibly skilled, wise, and humble. I've been wanting to join a group like this for awhile, and she and Jasmine are the perfect facilitators, holding space for safety, joy, authenticity, and business smarts. They got me excited and motivated in a way I hadn't been before.

...helped me feel confident and grounded in the business that I am building.

"I joined TLC because I was struggling to find my voice online, wasn’t feeling confident in my offerings and services, and was having trouble getting the kind of clients I wanted to work with. The Liberated Clinician helped me feel confident and grounded in the business that I am building. The topics and materials were very well-rounded: we looked at all aspects of building a business, and they were clear, detailed, and easy to follow and use in real-time. I now feel so much more confident speaking about what I specialize in. It also felt really good to know that there is a whole community of people with the same values that I have when it comes to business through an inclusive lens."

...so different than the usual coaching courses!

 

"This is an amazing course that is well worth the investment. It is so different from the usual coaching courses out there. I love that it is so welcoming and that everyone is so respectful of each other. The live weekly group calls have helped me with accountability and creating a sense of consistency and community, while the supervision sessions and guest teacher calls have provided a lot of new insights that I can use in my private practice."

The 4 Pillars of The Liberated Clinician

The framework you'll be working within during the program includes four fundamental pillars. Here's just some of what you'll explore during your time in The Liberated Clinician:

The Liberated Clinician Pillar 1 - weight inclusive care
Pillar 1: Weight-Inclusive Care

Explore and deepen your practice as a weight-inclusive clinician.

  • Gain confidence in your offerings
  • Discuss best practices for client sessions (structure, documentation, etc)
  • How to navigate the urge to "fix" our clients
  • Apply a weight-inclusive lens to various client cases including MNT
  • Support your clients with body image and weight concerns
  • Manage yourself and your nervous system during sessions.
  • Monthly supervision and case consultations to get real-time client support. 
The Liberated Clinician Pillar 2 - sustainable business growth
Pillar 2: Sustainable Business Growth & Development

Build a business that aligns with your values and grows with you. 

  • Identify and explore barriers that may be holding you back
  • Develop an authentic marketing strategy
  • Make authentic connections with other clinicians.
  • Create content that resonates
  • Find your voice & show up online
  • Website, copywriting & SEO best practices
  • Create group programs and courses
  • Build non-traditional income streams
  • Sit with the uncertainty that comes with owning a business.
The Liberated Clinician Pillar 3 - justice informed practice
Pillar 3: Justice-Informed Practices

Apply an anti-oppressive lens to your business and nutrition practice.

  • Learn to challenge imposter syndrome/feelings
  • Bring awareness to your cultural conditioning
  • Understand how your privileges impact your business and client work
  • Unpack your relationship to money
  • Sell without using scarcity
  • Make your services accessible (without burning out)
  • Challenge perfectionism and binary thinking

All while learning to sit with the discomfort that this work can bring up. 

The Liberated Clinician Pillar 4 - care and regenerative practices
Pillar 4: Care & Regenerative Practices

Prioritize self-care and opt-out of toxic hustle culture. Learn how to:

  • Prevent and manage burnout
  • Set boundaries
  • Rest and take time off without feeling guilty
  • Regulate your nervous system
  • Develop a variety of care and regenerative practices that you can use on a regular basis to keep you grounded and bring you back to yourself
  • Get support from the rest of The Liberated Clinician community

These four pillars are woven through our monthly topics and content, as we work together to infuse these pillars into our business, counseling practices, and personal self-care.

Plus I’ll be with you every step of the way, holding space for vulnerable conversations and the discomfort or uncertainty that can arise in this work.

Community is at the heart of The Liberated Clinician

As humans, we thrive in community. While working one-on-one with a business coach and supervisor is invaluable, over the years I have found that the growth and transformation that occurs when we are in community with one another is incredibly profound. 

The group will include clinicians with similar goals as you, all of whom want to learn how to navigate doing business differently than what the traditional business or marketing "gurus" teach us. 

You’ll be able to share your struggles, gain self-awareness, practice the skills you are learning, hear from a variety of perspectives, suggestions, and ways of interpreting experiences. All the while getting support from other dietitians and clinicians who truly understand what you are going through.

Over the years as I was able to find and build community -

people with whom I could show up as my full self, be held with compassion, have my questions answered, and be held accountable at the same time

- I became more grounded and more confident in both my business and my work with clients. 

Together we will cultivate a brave space where you can show up as your full self, be supported and held, while still being encouraged and challenged to grow and expand as a human, as a clinician, and as a business owner.

Learn new ways to do business and support your clients, while getting support and feedback from people who really get it. 

weight inclusive business coaching group
So that you can find a path forward: liberating yourself from the oppressive systems that impact you, your clients, and your business.
And change the world while you’re at it.

Let’s live into that, right now.

GOLD DIVIDER

Build a Business That Aligns With Your Values

Traditional business and marketing techniques are very similar to diet culture: they use scarcity tactics, fear, and shame to prey on people's insecurities.

Traditional nutrition and health professional training is also very similar: we are taught to "fix" people, assuming that something is wrong with them (hint: it's really a problem with our culture).

(This happens to our clients, but it also happens to us as clinicians: I have 100% made business decisions from a place of scarcity, fear, and shame. And it did NOT feel good.)
But there is a different way to do business. Let's challenge the 'status quo' in nutrition care and in business. 

Let's reframe what is possible as dietitians and clinicians

and do it together.

...my confidence as a new entrepreneur has definitely increased.

 

"When I joined TLC, I felt overwhelmed by all the tasks involved in starting and running a business and I struggled with imposter syndrome, perfectionism, confidence, and feeling not “good enough” to help clients compared to other clinicians. After completing the program, I feel more confident about knowing I am on my own path to supporting others. I feel more capable of providing nutrition therapy to different clients because of the topics, resources, knowledge, and wisdom I've gained from TLC. Thank you Alissa for creating this space for dietitians to grow and be open-minded so that they can better help their clients."

...really help me focus when work and life are hectic.

 

"The group calls have all been especially valuable because they have introduced new concepts or ways of doing things or reinforced information I previously learned while offering a sense of community. I have also found the co-working sessions and monthly workbooks to be valuable because they really help me focus when work and life are hectic."

Carrie Dennett, MPH, RD

Owner of Nutrition by Carrie and The Liberated Clinician Member, Spring 2022
...The Liberated Clinician exceeded my expectations!

 

"​​I now feel more confident running my business both from the business end and from the clinician/counseling end. We were provided with a lot of amazing resources and had so many great, diverse speakers to learn from (something other programs don't always include). The material was shared in a way that flowed well and wasn’t overwhelming. I went into this worried it would be formal, like school, but I loved the casual atmosphere. Everyone (Alissa and Jasmine included) was equal, and it never felt like I was being talked at. We had open discussions where everyone was able to learn from one another and share their own experiences. I learned so much valuable information and have a ton more resources to utilize now and in the future for my business, as a clinician, and in my personal life."

Allison, MS, RD

Owner of a private practice in Michigan and The Liberated Clinician Member, Spring 2022
...keeps me feeling connected, supported, and motivated.

 

"Being in community with others is really really invigorating for me. I feel like it helps keep the ball moving in terms of personal and professional growth and development and provides some of the community/social aspects of what gets missed from working from home as a solopreneur. The frequency of groups keeps my mind in the game and feeling connected and motivated. Feeling supported and less alone is SO helpful while working alone virtually these days."

The Liberated Clinician is for you if:

  • You’re a weight-inclusive/intuitive eating-aligned clinician who has a business, but it’s not getting the traction that you want.
  • You have been using intuitive eating with your clients, but feel like you want to go deeper.
  • You want to deepen your commitment to social justice and build a more sustainable, inclusive business.
  • Traditional marketing techniques feel icky to you, and you know you don’t want to do it “like that”, but you’re unsure how to navigate building a business differently.
  • You feel "stuck" and aren't sure where to go next with your business or practice.
  • You're feeling isolated or lonely and are looking for support and community.
  • You struggling with confidence issues, self-doubt, and/or "imposter syndrome" (quotes are there for a reason!).
  • You're afraid of messing up or doing things "wrong" which is keeping you feeling stuck and unsure.
  • You have been feeling burned out, unhappy, and/or unfulfilled and want to be able to feel passionate and excited about your work again.
  • You want a brave space to unpack, engage with and discuss various topics in the weight-inclusive space and the business world.
  • You're looking for personalized support, advice, feedback, and confidence to build and grow your nutrition business.
  • You want to do all of the above while sharing, connecting, and collaborating with other clinicians. 

The Liberated Clinician may not be a fit for you if:

  • You’re practicing from a weight-centric approach, selling weight loss, fat loss, and body transformation, or are coaching people to use restrictive eating practices like macro counting, intermittent fasting, etc. (I'm all about helping people approach nutrition from a place of self-care, using their own body cues/connection - along with some brain knowledge - to decide when, what, and how much to eat)

 

  • Money, growth, and power are the main drivers for you when it comes to running a business. (I value making a living AND building a justice-oriented business that helps others.)

Hi, I'm Jasmine Hormati - a dietitian, intuitive eating counselor, and owner of mendinground nutrition.

I always knew I wanted to have my own practice, but I kept hearing the message that I should get a few years of clinical experience before starting my own business. I knew that wasn't for me though. I knew that I wanted to help people using an intuitive eating and weight-inclusive approach. I knew that I wanted to have flexibility in my work and personal life.

After attending Alissa's Entrepreneurship Retreat in 2020, I felt inspired and energized to get my practice started. The things I learned in the retreat were super helpful and provided so much information. I also felt stressed about ALL THE THINGS I had to do to get started. I wondered if I really should work in clinical to get more experience first. I doubted my abilities. Who was I to charge what I wanted being a newer dietitian?

I found myself going deep into rabbit holes and let my perfectionism get in the way of launching. I learned a really helpful phrase from a dear friend: Done is better than perfect. And that allowed me to let go of trying to get it 'right' from the start and actually start my business.

Talking to other business owners, getting mentorship, and investing in my business helped me feel more confident in what I'm doing. I didn't feel so alone in this space. I also learned that I'm one of those people who likes to know a little bit about everything when it comes to running a business - website development, legal, finances and taxes, marketing, etc.

This also means that there's always something to do... as soon as I cross something off my to-do list, more things are added. I'm learning how to set boundaries, be okay with 'B+ work', and building a practice that works for me so that I can show up for my clients who need support.

I came into TLC overwhelmed, looking for some business coaching, accountability, a safe space, and community. I got all that, and more! After the program, I ran my first ever clinician-focused cohort, among so many other wins. The guest speakers, accountability buddy set-up, and mastermind calls were extremely helpful. Alissa is incredibly skilled, wise, and humble. I've been wanting to join a group like this for awhile, and she and Jasmine are the perfect facilitators, holding space for safety, joy, authenticity, and business smarts. They got me excited and motivated in a way I hadn't been before.

...really help me focus when work and life are hectic.

 

"The group calls have all been especially valuable because they have introduced new concepts or ways of doing things or reinforced information I previously learned while offering a sense of community. I have also found the co-working sessions and monthly workbooks to be valuable because they really help me focus when work and life are hectic."

Here’s how it works:

aka the Monthly Topic Breakdown

The Liberated Clinician Monthly Topic Breakdown Month 1
Month 1 - Foundations of Anti-Oppressive, Justice-Informed Business

We will spend time during Month 1 settling in, getting to know one another, and beginning to build a sense of trust, accountability, and community that will set the stage for the next six months.

Topics covered include:

  • Vision planning - for your business, for your life, for your community, for your clients, for the world.
  • Getting clear on your "why" and uncovering your core values.
  • Assessing values alignment - in your business, and in your life.
  • Acting on your values - how to use your values for decision-making and grounding.
  • Niching down - getting clear on your ideal client (and how to think about this differently than traditional business teaches us).
  • Goal setting and business planning - considering the rhythms of the year, nature, your body, and your energy levels.
  • Overview of the stages of business - are you working on the "right" things for where you are in your business?
The Liberated Clinician Monthly Topic Breakdown Month 2

  • What to consider when setting your prices and rates - for counseling, groups, consulting, and more.
  • Discussion of the various ways you can contribute to economic justice (without overdoing it to the point of emotional, financial, or energetic danger) plus why "making things more accessible" isn't necessarily the best goal.
The Liberated Clinician Monthly Topic Breakdown Month 3
Month 3 - Finding Your Voice and Showing Up Online

During Month 3, we'll continue to unpack all of the things - including a whole lot of cultural conditioning - that get in the way of our ability to show up authentically online.

  • How to show up authentically and consistently online.
  • Using social media for your business (and also - do you have to?).

  • Dealing with backlash when running an online business.
  • Challenging perfectionism - unpacking how it can help, and how it can harm you as a business owner and clinician.
  • Working through "imposter syndrome" feelings.
  • Developing confidence - as a clinician and a business owner.
  • The problem with scarcity mindset in business - and it's parallel to diet culture.
TLC Month 4 topics
Month 4 - Cultivating Regenerative, Care, and Joy Practices

Month 4 is all about regenerative practices: how can you cultivate regular self-care and connection practices, so that you can best show up for yourself and your clients?

Topics covered may include:

  • Understanding and redefining burnout - how does it happen? What does it feel like/look like?

  • Setting boundaries - in your business, with your clients, and in your life.

The Liberated Clinician Monthly Topic Breakdown Month 6
Month 6 - Leveraging Non-Traditional Income Streams

In our final month together, we will discuss how you can leverage a variety of non-traditional income streams (i.e. outside of 1:1 client work) to grow and provide stability to your business.

Topics covered may include:

  • Self-reflection - what non-traditional work is a fit for you?
  • How alternative income streams can fit into your business (without feeling like you're doing a million different things).
  • How to get started whether you're interested in:
    • Speaking
    • Writing
    • Brand work
    • Consulting
    • Corporate Wellness
  • How to develop "passive" income - group programs, online courses, digital products, etc.
  • Time for reflection and intentional closing of our container together as a group.

What TLC Members Are Saying

...The Liberated Clinician exceeded my expectations!

 

"​​I now feel more confident running my business both from the business end and from the clinician/counseling end. We were provided with a lot of amazing resources and had so many great, diverse speakers to learn from (something other programs don't always include). The material was shared in a way that flowed well and wasn’t overwhelming. I went into this worried it would be formal, like school, but I loved the casual atmosphere. Everyone (Alissa and Jasmine included) was equal, and it never felt like I was being talked at. We had open discussions where everyone was able to learn from one another and share their own experiences. I learned so much valuable information and have a ton more resources to utilize now and in the future for my business, as a clinician, and in my personal life."

...so different than the usual coaching courses!

 

"This is an amazing course that is well worth the investment. It is so different from the usual coaching courses out there. I love that it is so welcoming and that everyone is so respectful of each other. The live weekly group calls have helped me with accountability and creating a sense of consistency and community, while the supervision sessions and guest teacher calls have provided a lot of new insights that I can use in my private practice."

...my confidence as a new entrepreneur has definitely increased.

 

"When I joined TLC, I felt overwhelmed by all the tasks involved in starting and running a business and I struggled with imposter syndrome, perfectionism, confidence, and feeling not “good enough” to help clients compared to other clinicians. After completing the program, I feel more confident about knowing I am on my own path to supporting others. I feel more capable of providing nutrition therapy to different clients because of the topics, resources, knowledge, and wisdom I've gained from TLC. Thank you Alissa for creating this space for dietitians to grow and be open-minded so that they can better help their clients."
