About me

As a Functional Health Coach, I help you make the lifestyle changes you want to improve your chronic health conditions so you can do more and feel better. Together, we'll create plans that cause lasting benefits. I'll be supporting you the entire way with my knowledge, experience, and motivational tactics. I can help you foresee which obstacles can get in your way, which goals are right for you, and share knowledge of pain neuroscience to keep you, not your pain, in the driver's seat of your life.

I know how to help you individualize your plan with lifestyle changes in diet, supplementation, stress management, exercise, and getting a proper amount of sleep and sunshine. I can also help you reduce exposure to environmental toxins, manage stealthy infections, and reduce reliance on medications.

I also offer services as a health consultant. In those appointments, you can ask me anything about unconventional health resources, what I did to recover from my near-lifelong chronic health problems, or even tell me your health story.

My Philosophy of Care

My health journey was the perfect preparation for a career in coaching. I suffered from autoimmune diseases, their complications, and neuropathic pain for thirty-four years. My conditions and symptoms became so severe that I was disabled for fifteen years, and my life was defined and utterly controlled by pain. I have recorded a couple of videos about my struggle and utter triumph over my conditions. Here is a link to the short video: https://youtu.be/_MxpOHGD2dY.

Through my failures of using conventional medicine, I saw that an integrated approach is needed, so I came up with my own. I employed Functional Medicine, Lifestyle Medicine, and pain neuroscience principles combined with the survive-and-thrive mindset I developed to figure out a way forward with my chronic health problems! Then I worked out the most challenging step of how to implement the principles into my every action.

After I had recovered and developed perfect health, I realized that I now had a unique skill set of knowledge, experience, and customizable principles that could be invaluable in helping others similarly struggling. With my empathy for and understanding of others suffering from their chronic health problems, my trials of coming back from disability, and knowledge, I am the perfect candidate to be a health coach.

To quote Chris Kresser, "there's a behavior change expert who's uniquely positioned to help you make the changes necessary to prevent and reverse chronic disease: the health coach." That's me. That's why I set out to complete Kresser's ADAPT Academy Health Coach Training Program, to offer health consulting services, and why I decided to write a book with Dr. Lemons.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

They leave the appointment feeling tremendous relief and supported in a way they haven't ever felt before in health care, and sometimes nowhere else in their lives. They finally feel heard and like they're with someone who understands exactly what they're going through and who has the experience and knowledge to help them get the results they have wanted for so long. They are usually so excited that they can't wait for the next call to begin their improvement.

My Inspiration

Lifestyle changes can bring tremendous changes. I've seen that firsthand with my recovery. As crucial as pain neuroscience and a Functional Medicine protocol were for me, I wasn't getting anywhere without the lifestyle changes, and now with the concepts of epigenetics, it's been proven that our lifestyle choices actually switch on or switch off our genes and have profound effects on our health. Due to this, so much can be done to improve even chronic health problems.

However, implementing lifestyle changes is difficult! But imagine if you had someone on your side who could help you to achieve every New Year's Resolution you've ever made. How valuable would that be? Well, that's what I can do as your Functional Health Coach. I can help you find the motivations that keep you sticking with the changes you want to make and create the plans to help you get there in the way that works for you, and keep an eye on your health from a Functional Medicine perspective.

Functional Health Coaching will help to empower you and seize agency in your life as you've never had it before. It is such an honor as your health coach to be part of the process of your betterment. There is nothing quite like helping someone return to a joyful and purposeful life.

I'm sure there's a way forward for you, just like there was for me, even when it didn't seem like it. I want to do everything in my power to help you get results similar to mine, with your best health and a life you love!
