We are responsible to care for ourself so we can care for others
I'm a Certified Personal Health Coach, dedicated Heath Advocate with a solid background in Advance Practice Nursing, a grateful recovered self-sabotager, truly blessed and encouraged by life challenges. It was such an unbelievable gift that I discovered coaching as an option for my quest to truly make a difference in the health outcomes of our society. I am lucky enough to have been raised in a nutrition based home. Although as a kid I rebelled a lot! My Mom was before her time with food products, movement and importance of caring for your self with diet and exercise and NOT conforming to unhealthy marketing trends. I was the kid in the 70's with the raw peanut butter on hard whole grain bread, embarrassed that I did not have bologna and American on white with no crust. Apparently survived that humiliation and now am forever grateful for my Moms persistence.
As a young Nurse I had dreams of teaching everyone Mind-Body awareness to succeed in self-care, pre-diabetes prevention through adapting a healthy lifestyle. I achieved my masters in nursing with the dream of running my own clinic in a small mountain town somewhere, BUT, geographical life changed.
I soon began to settle in to city life and working for local doctors and hospitals.
It took years of feeling I was unable to help my patients stick with their plan, accomplish the goals set forth by the system before I realized this was not the way I want to work with people.
I began to identify the disconnect between the patients and their health system. What they were told to do and what was happening were not aligned. The patients were sad, scared, ashamed and felt they made the doctor upset with them therefore leading to poor follow-up and a deeper cycle of self defeat by the patient.
This presented an unhealthy, non-therapeutic relationship resulting in patients afraid to speak up and take action.
The solution lies in the strategy, change our behaviors and habits in order to stay well and have a chance at fighting off disease and illness, this is how I make a difference in peoples lives, as well as my own.
Taking the time to help my client uncover their health goals allows us to discover what the obstacles are in moving forward and allowing healing to take place.
Achieving awareness of body, and health is the first step, how you got to where you are and how you would like to get where you want to be.
Taking into consideration that we all come in from a different experience and life process and different truths and personal stories.
I allow the client to be in charge of the plan, believing that we both have the highest version in mind for the clients best wellbeing.
We use general nutrition, lifestyle, history and future goals and dreams to guide the path.
This is a full integrative approach to life in general that fulfills goals for overall wellbeing
I offer the perspective and the experience to the client to make the changes they know they need to or want to or "should" make.
I Listen... and along with them discover easy tools that fit their lifestyle without disruption that will facilitate lasting changes to better health.
A coach can only do the job if their is a player on the field, the player must see the goal before strategizing what it will take to get there.
Move That Mountain has great programs to make habit change doable. There are tailor made programs to fit your needs , 90 day, 28 day and specialty workshops to tune and discover whats next for you and your life.
The soul purpose of this long explanation to who I am and what I do comes down to why this program is different from others.
