I believe individuals have an innate resilience that allows for healing. The growing field of integrative medicine supports that resilience by combining the best of western medicine with a broader understanding of the nature of illness, recovery and true wellness. Integrative health coaching addresses the full range of physical, emotional, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect a person’s health.
The hallmark of integrative health coaching is working to bring balance to the whole person, taking time to listen to the client’s concerns, asking powerful questions and using specialized skills to help motivate clients to achieve healthy lifestyle changes. Through a nonjudgmental coaching partnership, clients are empowered to reach their highest level of wellbeing.
Using my training from Duke Integrative Medicine, I collaborate with clients to identify opportunities for change and create strategies for forward movement. In the end, integrative health coaching inspires success by connecting people with a personalized health plan that supports their own health vision, values and voice.
Oak City Integrative Health clients set their own agenda for change in various health related behaviors. I bring the expertise, listening and guiding skills, accountability and tools to coach the client forward.
