We are responsible to care for ourself so we can care for others
I am living my idea of teaching people why they need to live well, carrying out a vision I wrote about 25 years ago in Nursing school that I will treat a person as a whole body, mind and soul, So humor me and develop the urge to live and be well.
I'm a Certified Transformational Health Coach, dedicated Heath Advocate with a solid background and dual certification in Advance Practice Nursing. I am a grateful recovering self-sabotager, truly blessed and encouraged by life's challenges. I chose coaching to make a difference in the health outcomes of my patients and clients as well as their families. Being that I was raised in a nutrition based home, 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 and 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 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 see and feel the disconnect between 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 voice their health goals allows us to discover what the obstacles in moving forward are then seeing healing take place.
Achieving awareness of body, mind 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 requires understanding your body.
Understanding our unique experiences, beliefs about life, different truths and personal stories will affect our habits and changeability is key.
My client is in charge of the plan, believing that we both have the highest version in mind for their best wellbeing.
We use general nutrition, lifestyle, history and future goals and dreams as our guide to success.
I offer the perspective and the experience to my client to make the changes they know they need to or want to make and along with them discover easy tools that fit their lifestyle without much disruption to facilitate lasting changes and better health overall.
A coach and client must be focused on the same goal, which many times changes as we grow and learn new and different options.
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 fine tune and discover whats next for you and your life.
Who I am and what I do comes down to why this program is different from others.
