Your primary care doctor is very helpful when you have an acute problem or emergency. However, he/she seldom has time to look at your big picture and really get to know you. And it’s not their fault! Many clinics require providers to see 30 or more patients per day, so they just don’t have time to spend with you. It’s no wonder you leave an appointment feeling unheard and without real answers! I take time to know you and what influences your life and health, so plan on an hour or more for your first appointment. I make sure that we address the things that concern you the most, and find options that are going to help you feel and function much better.
I help you understand why you aren't feeling so well.
There is so much conflicting health information online and in the media, and it can get confusing. What applies specifically to YOU? We all do the best that we can with the understanding we have at the moment. And it may be things that you don’t understand yet that are holding you back. I provide demystified health information that you can easily understand and apply in practical ways to your own health. This understanding also helps you have intelligent and informed conversations with your doctor if you are under a doctor’s care.
I help you navigate the journey to transforming your health.
Chances are that what you eat, how you move, and the way you handle stress have contributed to your health concerns. Some things are going to have to change. Like a GPS system for your health, I help you successfully navigate the journey from where you are now to where you want to be.
I treat you as a whole person.
You are a complex and integrated being, not merely the sum of your parts. Everything is connected to everything else, so anything can cause anything! But your body was designed with an amazing ability to repair and heal itself. Just as health can spiral downward as one or two aspects erode, health can rebound when needed support is provided. You have more control than you may think, which is good news! We address 6 main aspects of your health: Physical, Mental/Emotional, Nutritional, Environmental, Spiritual, and Bioenergetic. The more support you can provide to each aspect, the more your body has what it needs to function properly and heal.
Together we get to the root of your health challenges.
I am not a doctor and do not “diagnose” or “treat” any disease. I help you to identify contributing factors in your current state of health, and then put the habits and supports in place to address those factors. You’ll create a lifestyle that supports your health instead of sabotage it.
Two decades into my nursing career, I realized I was really in the business of sick care, not health care. Most modern diseases are lifestyle induced, and therefore preventable, and often reversible! I wanted to get on the side of caring for health, and empower my patients to arrest the progression of chronic disease, not simply medicate and manage it. The pain of a little discipline is nothing compared to the pain of regret. You don’t need to wait until a catastrophic health crisis happens. Listen to the warning signals your body is sending you! I work with those who are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired and are ready to do what it takes to take back their health. It doesn’t have to be painful or difficult! We work together to target the essential steps needed to support and restore your health, and fit those steps seamlessly into your busy life. If that sounds good to you, I invite you to sign up for my monthly newsletter and schedule a complementary “Take Back My Health” call or office visit to see if we would be a good fit to partner together and get you feeling good again.

I'm busy. You're busy. We are all "too busy" to get exercise, to prepare healthy meals, or set aside some quiet time with God. I hear this excuse every day in my health coaching practice and I get it. I struggle too! But in all honesty, we all have the same 24...
