What is a Health Coach?

A Certified Health Coach is a professional trained to provide guidance, support and education to individuals around holistic health and wellness topics. Health Coaches may provide advice on nutrition, physical activity, stress management, lifestyle changes and behavior modification to encourage their clients to make healthier choices. Health Coaches also collaborate with clients to help them define, initiate and sustain lifestyle changes.

How can a Health Coach help you?

  1. Improved Health: A health coach can help you create specific goals and objectives to improve your health and optimize your health long-term. Health coaching puts the focus on your health, dietary habits, and lifestyle, which helps you make wise decisions about your well-being in the present and the future.

  2. Increased Self-Awareness: By working with a health coach, you can gain greater insight and understanding of the lifestyle choices you make and why you make them. A health coach works with you to identify roadblocks and offer alternative solutions to healthier living.

  3. Improved Diet: A health coach helps you create more balanced and nutritious meals that are tailored to your individual needs. Good nutrition is essential to good health and a health coach can help you create a meal plan that will ensure you are getting the nutrients you need to stay healthy.

  4. Stress Management: A health coach can help you develop an effective stress management plan to reduce stress.

Health coaching provides value to individuals looking to make positive changes in their lifestyle and reach their desired health goals. From providing personalized support and guidance, to promoting self-care, health coaching is a great way to provide individuals with the tools and resources they need to achieve optimal health and wellness. With the help of a health coach, you can make a lasting transformation in your life and be well on your way to a healthier, happier you.

I was introduced to functional medicine out of necessity, when in 2018, I experienced a life-threatening stroke due to my Type 1 Diabetes being misdiagnosed as vertigo. Since my diagnosis, I have been living a lifestyle of healing and finding answers to sustain lasting change. Education is the name of the game and my passion. In working with over 100 clients, I find that education is the important part of any change. Knowing why we have these afflictions and how they work is the first step to creating a higher quality of life. As a health coach, I'm able to combine my passion for education, health, and nutrition with my knowledge of behavior change to partner with and empower you to make sustainable changes in your life. Together we will work to discover healthy habits.
