I am working as fast as I can in the background to pivot this page to accommodate this new pandemic living. Please excuse broken links and check back often or contact me.
There are many types of health coaches and the term is very widely used. Some represent and are trained in specific products like essential oils, a software platform or supplements . Others are certified by schools in a variety of topics in the health of fitness industry and offer specific programs. What you will get here is support for anything you choose to achieve YOUR health goals. I will be there for you to with ideas for lifestyle and behavior modifications, research and education, and encouragement and as you forge ahead on this journey of health with all it's twists and turns.
I am not another expert, I walk with you. We consult and listen to the directions and opinions of experts you choose such as your personal trainer, yoga instructor, chiropractor, physician, acupuncturist sister-in-law, neighbor, psychic or shaman. They may be experts in their fields but the expert in you is YOU. You need to decide, with the use of , Not mine. Not your doctors. Not anyone else's. Other peopl may have great influence or input but it has to be yours. You are, after all, the only one that lives in there!!
Health goals can be a simple as losing a few pounds and adding a bit more movement. Communicating with the people in your life so that you are better understood and less reactive. Kicking a sugar habit after a vacation or the holidays. Organization and time management. Managing stress, find your center or gain energy. Looking to improve sleep, tackle anxiety or clear up your skin. Want to learn more about something in nutrition or cooking. Helping to understand and tame big issues like diabetes, heart disease or autoimmune conditions.
Time to listen
Working in an independent studio as opposed to being in a practitioners office gives us the benefit of many years of client cases, the input of many health care practitioners and the gift of time. Appointments are 60 to 90 minutes and every one comes with a week of unlimited text and email.
Training & Experience
This is heart-centered whole-person health care at it’s finest using years of experience, a background in clinical nutrition and extensively trained in positive psychology, motivation, mediation, active parenting and functional medicine. I am here to teach, mentor, inspire, guide and motivate you to cultivate positive health choices and set goals toward your most vibrant life.
Medical field acknowledgement
The medical field is now recognizing the importance of health coaching for filling the gap between their world and yours. Coaching brings doctors order to life by keep patients motivated and accountable with high contact and feedback. Many practitioners, corporations and insurance companies are adding trained health coaches to their staff and that is a definite win for both everyone involved with that additional insight and support. I work with many practitioners around the world and welcome the opportunity to work with your health care provider. You receive a discount for a prescription/referral for health coaching from your licensed physician, nutritionist, acupuncturist, chiropractor, physical therapist, etc. Download the page below or provide a signed/stamped prescription.
More good news
You don't have to be under medical management to use coaching services. Many clients are healthy and want to keep it that way. They order their own blood labs, design their own food and exercise plans and rely on me to be a health partner by analyzing and reaching those things for them as well as sit down when things don't feel right or they hit a rough patch. These people know how to remain pre-clinical which is a great way to live!
Coaching used to be available only to professional athletes, executives and politicians. Today the psychology of coaching is reaching across many diverse areas. If we can partner in an open-minded “back-to-basics” approach to health and wellness, realize and appreciate how truly unique we all are, honor ancient traditions, fine tune the ability to listen to our innate wisdom and use the advancements in genomics, epigenetics, medical devices and microbiome science, we have a chance to get out of neutral and live a vibrant life. We have a chance to reverse the trend of ever increasing diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune disease, and much more.
