I began my journey to become a health coach as I have struggled with my own health issues. Despite what I then thought to be living healthfully, I have faced some personal health challenges along the way.
At one point in time, I was working 9 hour days, commuting 2 1/2 hours a day, raising a child and neglecting myself. I found myself stressed out, with skin issues, weight gain, extreme fatigue, digestive issues, sleep issues, severe allergies, depression, and no time to take care of myself. Doctors prescribed antibiotics and steroid creams, and anti-depressants. I saw an acupuncturist who told me that I may have an autoimmune disease. I always suspected that I had Thyroid issues, but conventional doctors would not test me. I was told that because " I did not have goiter," and "Your thyroid is fine." No one ever suggested a change in diet or lifestyle. I finally realized that I needed to make some changes in order to reclaim my health and my life. I attended The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and began to heal myself. I started to recognize the mind/body connection. My body aches subsided, skin cleared, and I lost weight. I still had some lingering symptoms, so I found a functional medicine doctor would did a full blood panel and I was diagnosed as HYPOTHYROID! I had intuitively known all along something was off. I have since learned to listen to my body and the signals it is sending me.
I have always been fascinated with the Thyroid as it is the messaging center for the body. I continued my education in a Mastering Thyroid Imbalances course at Full Potential Living
, and then continued on to get a Master Certification as a Thyroid Health Coach.
My Specialty is working with women in their 30's to 60's as that is when we start to experience hormonal changes. I coach women with Thyroid and Hormonal imbalances, weight loss, skin issues, and self care. I realize that all women are incredible multi-taskers, whether a working woman, busy mom, or busy working mom. We tend to " juggle it all" with our lives and the lives of those whom we take care of, often neglecting ourselves in the process. Drawing from my own personal experience with these issues, I coach women to reach their health goals and to become the very best version of themselves.
I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
, and Thyroid Certification from Full Potential Living,
where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. My Thyroid Certification has me well versed in the symptoms and problems associated with Thyroid Imbalances, how to address them holistically, help the client get a better understanding of what their condition means and how to create healthier thyroid function. With my knowledge, we co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.
As a coach, I put the power back in YOUR hands.
