Hi friend, I’m Courtney Vickery and I’m an eating disorder dietitian by day and a designer by night.
My journey as a designer began when I was trying to find a way to represent my private practice online in a way that was true to who I am, embodied the values of weight-inclusivity, and fostered trust with potential clients.
I want other weight-inclusive providers in private practice to feel empowered with their online presence too!
By partnering with me, you’ll get more than just a website; you’ll get an experienced guide who can help you create an online space that aligns with your values and creates meaningful connections between you and your potential clients.
You’re probably wondering how a nutritionist ended up here, right?
Well, it’s one of those stories that began with an unexpected passion. I found myself spending hours on creating and designing my website, marketing materials, client experience materials and more – not because I had to but because I actually enjoyed it! It was something I never expected to love doing so much.
Soon enough, friends were asking for help with their materials, then the word spread further and more people started asking for assistance. Before I knew it, what had once been a hobby was quickly becoming something far greater – a vocation in strategic website and brand design specifically tailored for those in private practice who practice from a weight-inclusive approach.
I am here to offer you my extensive knowledge and expertise in website and brand design AND strategy. With my help, you can create an online presence that you are proud of – one that reflects the professionalism of your business and allows you to stand out from the competition. Your brand and website should be an indication of the quality of services you provide; one that captures attention and speaks volumes about your credibility.
You don’t have to go through the process alone anymore – I’m now here to guide you step by step in bringing your vision alive with an aesthetically pleasing and functional brand and website that will add real value to your business!
It probably sounds unusual, I know. But, I wanted a name that was unique and that meant something to me. I know that ‘smushing’ two names together isn’t necessarily revolutionary, but it’s what felt right to me.
So, you guessed it, ‘Declet’ is a mashup of my children’s names.
My mission is to help weight-inclusive entrepreneurs in private practice promote their services in a visually compelling way without compromising their core values.
I understand that the appearance and composition of a brand and website can have an immense impact on how potential clients perceive you and your business, so I am committed to creating brands and websites that reflect our clients’ unique brand identity while conveying the important message that they value all body sizes.
As an eating disorder survivor and a Dietitian who practices from a weight-inclusive lens, I am committed to providing strategic website and brand design for practitioners in private practice who practice from a weight inclusive approach. My commitment to being weight-inclusive means that I strive to create websites and brands that are respectful towards all individuals regardless of their size or shape.
I believe that everyone deserves dignity and respect, which is why it is essential to lead with compassion when designing websites for private practitioners who want to help others heal from body image issues. It’s also crucial for me to provide supportive resources that are free of diet culture lingo, judgement, and shame so clients can focus on healing rather than trying to “fix” themselves.
Therefore, I prioritize creating websites that are non-diet focused and uplifting in nature so clients can find comfort in knowing they will be heard without judgement or stigma. As a designer, I am committed to promoting messages of self-love and compassion, positive body image, Intuitive Eating principles, Health At Every Size (HAES®) based care, and anti-diet approaches as part of my design services.
I strive to build long-term relationships with my clients based on mutual respect, transparency, and trust. I understand that each client has different needs, which is why I take the time to listen carefully to your vision for your business and create tailored solutions that meet those needs.
My commitment to integrity extends beyond the projects I complete for my clients; it also encompasses how I interact with my peers in the design community. I recognize that by working together we can ensure high standards of excellence are maintained and that everyone can benefit from improved practices across the board.
My goal as a designer is to inspire weight-inclusive business owners by providing them with high quality website and brand designs that accurately reflect their values.
I strive to create inspiring, meaningful designs that empower business owners to reach their full potential. By creating thoughtful websites and designs based on the business owner’s values, I work hard to ensure that each design I create is visually stimulating and informative.
Every interaction with a customer is a chance to tell a story.
Let your website & branding
do some of the storytelling for you.
