HEALTH COACHING

“There are far, far better things ahead than the ones we leave behind.”

-C.S. Lewis

” The number one obstacle people face on their journey toward better health is lack of support. Everyone wants to get healthy, but we all need someone to hold us accountable and to ask the right questions. We need someone to cheer us on and help us create a plan to achieve our goals.
That is where a coach with the right training and the heart of a teacher comes in. “

– Dr. Mark Hyman, Functional Medicine Coaching

Hello,

I’m Amanda. As a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach, I help my clients observe their lifestyle patterns with a fresh, evidence-based perspective and offer an individualized approach to working through the stages of change. I empower them to create purposeful and powerful goals to work toward the best version of themselves – in health and in life.

I am trained through the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy in techniques for guiding clients in making changes. I am skilled in applying principles for relaxing the mind and body, for using lifestyle to optimize health, for harnessing personal strengths, and for using food to power the body.

The Functional Medicine Coaching Academy is unique in that it is the only health coaching program established in collaboration with The Institute for Functional Medicine. My educational experience with FMCA left me feeling passionate about helping others as a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach and well-equipped with research-based knowledge and proven techniques to help my clients get where they want to be.

My family, friends, and faith are a big part of my life and have helped shape me into who I am today. For that, I’m deeply grateful.

My Story

It all began with a hospital visit to the ER where we discovered my husband was having an abnormal amount of “heart palpitations”. What we learned and experienced opened our eyes to the power of lifestyle change and food as medicine.

Your Lifestyle Matters
BECAUSE YOU MATTER

“…it is your lifestyle washing over your genes that determines who you are in any moment. What you eat, how you move, how you restore your system, along with your thoughts, feelings and social connections, regulate your genes. Those genes end up creating the expression of who you are and how you are. You can turn on genes that create health or disease, weight gain or weight loss.”

– Dr. Mark Hyman, MD

Why choose a Functional Medicine Health Coach?

“With a health coach, you have a personal ally for your wellness.”

As we all know, changing lifestyle habits can be difficult and having a health coach as your personal ally can make all the difference. I can help you observe your lifestyle patterns with a fresh perspective and offer an individualized, functional approach to working through the stages of change.

 

What is Functional Medicine?

 

…functional medicine turns the tree upside down and looks at the health of the roots first to understand why the leaves look diseased.

Vincent Pedre, MD

The Functional Medicine model seeks to identify and restore the root cause(s) of disease rather than solely treat the symptoms. The focus is centered on the patient as an interconnected whole: individually unique in biology, genetics, lifestyle, and environment.

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

-World Health Organization

You are aware that others are depending on you, and you want to be the BEST YOU for them. You also hope they will follow your lead.

Your doctor has given you a label and asked you to make some lifestyle changes. You want a coach to listen to your story, offer support, and help you break things down into smaller action steps.
