Dr. Ashley Solomon is a dynamic and engaging speaker! Ashley’s presentation had such meaningful content and examples that made the presentation so “real” for all of our women. Great key take-aways too!

(Managing Partner, Ernst & Young)

Ashley brought an open and relaxed attitude, which allowed the participants to feel comfortable engaging in bold and honest discussions regarding their experiences. We can’t wait to have Ashley back again to further the discussion!

- (Workshop Coordinator, EY)

Not only is Dr. Solomon very knowledgeable with the facts but she was incredibly engaging. She created a safe environment for conversation on sensitive topics and sparked the need for change and continuing conversations going forward. We are excited to work with her again.
- (PWN Leader, Ernst & Young)

I had the pleasure of watching one of Ashley’s presentation recently, and it was truly one of a kind. It got me and other attendees reflecting about how we think and how exhibit traits of imposter syndrome. It also made me feel heard and seen, knowing others have the same concerns and hesitations as I do. I highly recommend having Ashley speak at your event or company. She was not only impactful, but very easy and pleasant to work with.

Thrive Circles

Thrive Circle :: A Mastermind for Health & Wellness Practice Growers

Building a practice based on your deepest values is rewarding beyond measure -- and it can be lonely, confusing, a nerve-wracking as hell. You want to grow and do what you love (and are stellar at) and yet there are just so many decisions to be made and obstacles popping up along the way. 

Marketing, pricing, networking, forms, systems, legal issues, accounting, facilities, hiring… it’s a LOT. Oh, and then there's the service you're providing...

The good news is that we can do hard things. And we can do hard things better when we do them together. 

The Thrive Circle for women building practices is designed to provide the support needed to help your work have a bigger presence in the world while you stay sane. 

The Thrive Circle is set up like a mastermind group in which a small, committed group of women come together biweekly to challenge, inspire, support, and hold each other accountable to our practice goals. 

The power of masterminds have been known for decades. The most successful leaders around the world recognize the value of a team of motivated confidantes dedicating themselves to their own and each other’s growth. And what do women business owners need now more than ever? A team.

The Details

Who is this for? 

This Thrive Circle is designed for women who own practices providing physical or mental health or wellness services. The group will be most ideal for women in their first five years of owning a practice or who are looking to now rebrand, scale, or grow their business. 

How will I benefit? 

Oh the ways! 

  • Access to a dedicated group of like-minded, purpose-driven women who want to see you succeed. 
  • Facilitation by a professional coach with over ten years of business growth experience. 
  • Opportunity to work through your biggest challenges in business without starting from scratch. 
  • Accountability on all those things you’ve been saying you’ll do, but just haven’t quite done… 
  • A focus on not only you as a business owner, but you as a human (amen!).  
  • Guidance on resources, systems, and tools to run your practice efficiently and effectively. 

How do we connect? 

We’ll meet primarily through a private online video platform. Depending on the geography of our participants, we’ll work to arrange a few person sessions as well, if possible. 

When and how often do we meet? 

We’ll meet every other Tuesday morning from 11:00-12:15 ET. This frequency will ensure that we’re tracking to everyone’s goals but we’re not overwhelming your schedule. 

What’s the commitment? 

It’s a serious one, so you need to be sure it’s right for you. By joining, you’re committing to attending for a period of six months, which will include twelve sessions. You are agreeing that you’ll share your triumphs and your struggles openly, and that you’re willing to give real, honest feedback -- your Thrive colleagues will be counting on it. 

What is the cost? 

The cost is $60/session and you can pay at one time or monthly. 

How do I get started? 

Ensuring that we have a great group of women on the same page with needs and goals is so important to the success of the experience. As such, if you are interested in participating, contact me here and I’ll ask you a few questions to make sure this is the right group for you.

Supervision

Body Liberation Clinical Supervision Group

CEDS Certification Supervision

Hosted by Dr. Ashley Solomon, CEDS-S & Jessica Barth Nesbitt, MA, RD, LD, CEDRD-S

As a clinical psychologist and registered dietitian, we are thrilled to partner in offering you an opportunity to elevate your non-diet approach to supporting patients and clients. If you are a health or wellness provider who supports people with disordered eating and painful relationships to their bodies and you:

  • Feel like you are swimming alone in a sea of diet culture
  • Value evidence-based knowledge to ground your work
  • Could benefit from practical skills to strengthen your approach
  • Have felt isolated in supporting complex issues
  • Are committed to providing the most ethical, science-backed, and humane care

we would love to invite you into our clinical supervision group! And all the while, gain supervision hours toward your designation as a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist. (Please note, this group is open to ANY provider who is interested in developing these skills. You do not need to be pursuing CEDS to join.)

This supervision group offers a unique opportunity to experience a multi-disciplinary and multi-perspective  framework for approaching challenges with food, body, and weight concerns.

This supervision group blends a networking with a community of support with concrete skill development. Over the course of the year, we’ll cover topics such as:

  • Supporting families addressing disordered eating and creating a healthy non-diet culture
  • How disordered eating manifests in marginalized populations and how to tailor interventions in a culturally appropriate manner
  • How to create peace with food when navigating complexity like veganism, intolerances, allergies, and food avoidance
  • How to respond to clients’ interest in and pursuit of weight loss intervention when you see this harming them
  • How to incorporate a body-liberation stance into modalities such as yoga, ACT, and nutrition support
  • How to assess our own internalized biases and cultural assumptions and examine how they impact our work
  • How to identify the impacts of trauma on the bodily experience and what to do when this shows up

and many, many more! Guest experts in the areas of trauma, dietetics, and more will join us periodically to provide additional knowledge and skills.

When is it?

The group will run ongoing and you are asked to commit to at least five sessions. These do not have to be consecutive if you have a conflict that arises.

Third Thursday of each month

12:00-1:30pm EST

How do we connect?

You will be sent a secure link to connect to the group once registered. You will get to dig into these juicy topics with amazing colleagues all without battling a commute or dressing to impress (some clothing required… we love liberating bodies, but…).

How do I join?

Use the contact form to send an email explaining your current work, licensure status, and reason for interest in the group. You will receive a response within three business days confirming whether you are accepted into the group and a potential start date. Spaces are limited, so you may be placed on a waitlist.

What is the financial investment?

Pre-licensed professionals: $65 per group session

Licensed professionals: $75 per group session

*For those in private practice, this may count as a tax deductible expense.

**Discounts available for those primarily working with marginalized communities. 

What if I am looking for individual supervision or consultation?

Individual supervision may be offered, depending on availability. Send a note explaining what you are seeking and you’ll receive a response shortly.

What if I have questions?

Shoot them over via the contact form.

Courses

While psychotherapy and coaching allow you to individualize your goals and work closely with a guide, courses are a wonderful opportunity to dip your toes in the water of a particular area of interest or need.

Courses are downloadable and self-paced. They are designed to offer insights and actionable tools for your development.

We will be offering a series of courses on both mental health and leadership-related topics in 2020. Stay tuned and subscribe to our newsletter for updates.
