My Journey to Holistic Health Coaching
Before becoming a health coach, I worked for several years in the entertainment industry, spending hours on sets in New York City. I was known as the girl who brought her own sandwich, fruits, and water each day. I had always been fixated on being “skinny” and “fit,” but I wasn’t healthy at all. I could barely make it through my days. Juggling my acting career, raising my daughter, and making sure the house was impeccable became tougher and tougher.
So, I turned to energy drinks, prescription stimulants, and caffeine—lots of it. These things worked for a while…until they didn’t. My chronic fatigue prevented me from being present with my family and friends. My insomnia left me sobbing into my pillow at night. And strange food sensitivities restricted my diet, leaving me with few options.
As the curious person I have always been, I set out on a mission to find out why I was feeling this way and how I could change it. I visited many traditional doctors—from an endocrinologist to a psychiatrist. But they all said my labs were normal. No one could tell me the root cause of my issues. I even started to wonder if it was all in my head.
I felt hopeless but at the same time determined. I refused to feel this way forever; I was going to heal myself.
I decided to take my health into my own hands and completed my training in Functional Diagnostic Nutrition-FDN® .Through assessment and functional lab testing, I was able to identify the root causes of my symptoms ,and finally after years of trial and error bring my body back into balance . To take my studies even further, I also attended the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.-IIN There, I learned more about holistic health and wellbeing and gained the practical coaching skills needed to help others experiencing the same imbalances I had experienced. The combination of FDN® and IIN training has allowed me to become proficient in helping my clients achieve balance in various body systems, including hormonal, detoxification, immune and digestive pathways.
