What is integrative
Do you relate with either of the following…
”I feel lost and hopeless, and have no idea what to do to get my life back” What do I eat? What supplements should I take? How do I regain my energy? What information should I listen to?
I feel like I know the things I should be doing to improve my health, but I have a really hard time sticking to them” I know I feel better when I exercise, but I don’t have time! Sleep makes my symptoms improve, but I just have too many things to do. I’m too tired to clean my house.
Coaching addresses both the WHAT and the HOW. It’s about learning the right tools for you AND learning how to practically apply them to your life.
Integrative health coaching facilitates the process of bridging the gap between not knowing what to do to feel better, or what we know we should probably be doing for our wellbeing, and actually doing it to create a lasting habit.
By forming a partnership, you will feel empowered and supported in achieving your personal goals related to your optimal health.
What does a coaching session look like?
During each coaching session, we will work together to:
ELICIT a vision: We will explore what is most important to you in life and what you want your health and wellbeing for. Our values translated to action, lead to lasting change.
FOCUS: We will integrate 7 core areas that affect your health and wellbeing-how you would rate your satisfaction with them currently and which areas you’re ready to enhance.
PLAN and TAKE ACTION: After uncovering where you’re ready to start making change, we will thoroughly personalize a plan around YOUR life, schedule, commitments, and realities. We will go in depth with strategies and ways to anticipate possible challenges to help you be successful.
Together we may:
Build an anti-inflammatory food plan tailored to your specific condition and lifestyle

Learn stress reduction techniques such as short and easy breathing techniques to help you when you are feeling pain
