I am one of less than 2500 National Board-Certified Holistic Health & Wellness Coaches in the U.S. I am passionate about using a Functional Medicine perspective to help women with their health struggles. That means focusing on finding out what the root cause of your symptoms are and dealing with them naturally so you can live a vibrant and healthy life once and for all. We’ll address the reasons you have symptoms and resolve them rather than just give you medication to cover them up. Healthy is not a state created by taking medications to feel good, it is feeling healthy because we have all your organs and systems working the way they should…medication free!
I noticed that no matter where I was women were talking about struggling with brain fog, fatigue/exhaustion, constipation, sleep issues, stress, obesity & weight loss, IBS, GERD, diabetes, allergies, heart disease, depression and anxiety just to name a few issues. I heard them at the gym, in line at the grocery store or even while waiting to order my lunch at a local café.
I was frustrated because even though my health coach training was extensive I could only help clients up to a point and then their issues were in the hands of their doctors who gave them various medications for their symptoms. I knew that there had to be a different way so, I researched schools that would give me the training to help my clients find the root cause of their dis-ease. I am not a medical professional (although 60% of my fellow students are) and so I do not diagnose illnesses or prescribe medications. I partner with my clients to address their personal wellness goals and to determine what their unique body needs to function optimally as there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to achieving optimal health and vitality.
I believe that stress and lack of time are two of our biggest problems and spending so much time in traffic ,just trying to get to our destination just compounds it. So, for that reason I only work virtually with my clients. I don’t mean that we talk on the phone because it is important for us to be able to see each other. Therefore, I do all my client consultations using programs like Facetime, Zoom or Practice Better. In this way we both avoid the stress and extra time that it would take to travel and can meet in the calm and privacy of our own homes. It’s truly a win-win for all!
