The time is now when clients need your help to achieve optimal health and wellness while addressing common mental health problems. Telehealth has quickly shifted from something that some of us use some of the time, to one of the primary ways we will practice for the foreseeable future.

This course will show you how to transition your practice from onsite to telehealth, and how to incorporate nutrition and integrative medicine with your clients. 

Join Dr. Leslie Korn, renowned integrative medicine clinician and educator, as she shares her tips from her successful telehealth practice for 20+ years. She will guide you through how to create and maintain an effective telehealth practice. 

The key clinical goals you’ll learn will be: 

  • How to practice with individuals, families and groups via telehealth   
  • Tips to grow, maintain and build rapport with clients
  • Multiple ways to overcome challenges to distance and technology 
  • Specific self-care interventions for yourself and clients using nutrition and integrative approaches

You’ll leave with clear guidelines and interventions with new confidence and competency in navigating this new telehealth world! And as an extra bonus, this course includes some yummy recipes and exercises to share with clients or try yourself!
