What is Health Coaching?

"Health Coaching is the bridge that takes you from wanting something to achieving it!" Functional Medicine Health Coaches work alongside their clients collaboratively to bridge the gap between where they are are where they want to be with an individualized plan taking each clients unique health needs into consideration."Health Coaches help people to change when change is hard!" Each session is client centered, meaning each clients concerns, goals, and questions regarding their own personal health will all be discussed and prioritized while also creating a plan to encourage movement, stress reduction, better sleep habits, and prioritizing nutrition.

What does a Health Coach focus on?

Functional Nutrition:

Understanding that food is medicine is the core to what functional nutrition is all about! When the body is supported nutritionally and given all that it needs it then possesses the ability to heal and repair itself.

 

Mind/Body Medicine:

Mind/body medicine is the field of medicine concerned with the ways that our minds, thoughts, and emotions influence the body and our physical health. Learning to implement stress reduction techniques in our everyday life will create and sustain healing and growth.

Positive Psychology:

Positive Psychology is the scientific study of individuals unique character strengths to help them to thrive leading meaningful and fulfilling lives. A Functional Medicine Health Coach will help to cultivate each clients unique character strengths to help create this kind of life so that both body and mind are supported!

SMART Goals:

Functional Medicine Health Coaches come alongside their clients to collaboratively create goals for each client that are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-sensitive...meaning I will help both create, hold you accountable, and support you along the way to meet your health and wellness goals.

During our one-on-one sessions we will at times zoom out and take a birds eye view of your life and at other times zoom in to focus on specific areas you'd like to make changes in.

A Functional Medicine Physician will investigate your health by getting an all encompassing picture of your lifestyle, environment, and nutrition habits followed up by laboratory analysis and diagnostic testing for further investigation. As each facet of the individual patients health is addressed they are offered support to regain a life of health and wellness. A Functional Medicine Health Coach will bridge the gap between what clients know they need to do to be healthy and the intrinsic motivation they need to actually make and sustain those changes.

Can You Relate? Are You...

Tirelessly fighting against your body & feeling pain, fatigue, and depleted constantly?

Conflicted about all the nutrition facts and what is/isn't healthy while battling Lyme?

Not sure how to detox and support your body in order to make progress?

Feeling like your health trials are bringing you down,and draining all the joy out your life leaving you hopeless?

Looking for the support of someone who's been there done that?

My Approach:

 

I believe in taking into consideration every facet of your life including your environment, support system, diet, mindset, movement & exercise, gut health, detoxification modalities, & more. We are mind, body & spirit & all must be addressed in order to heal.

I believe in digging down the the root cause of illness rather than bandaid quick fixes. The body has an innate ability to heal when we take away that which is hindering health & add the right tools to support it.

I believe in a whole lifestyle approach to health with the perspective that one's mindset is crucial to anyone seeking lasting lifestyle change providing an atmosphere that prioritizes positivity, self compassion, and celebrating what is working right.

I believe in a whole foods plant based (prioritizing plant foods) diet rather than calorie counting, fad diets, or quick fixes to support overall health. That being said, we each have unique health needs that must be taken into consideration. 

 

I believe in empowering you to tune into what your body needs and is telling you. No one knows your body like you do and your body speaks to you everyday.

I believe in approaching each client with a nonjudgmental empathetic perspective and see my role as the facilitator helping to build the scaffolding of a life that prioritizes healing.
