I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program.
During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
At the end of my training, I became a Certified Holistic Health Coach. In addition, I am also certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and received accreditation from the State University of New York Purchase College for my continued studies in Nutrition.
While studying at the Institute, one of the Integrative systems of medicine that really fascinated me was Ayurveda. It emphasizes the interconnectedness of the body, mind and spirit and strives to maintain the innate harmony of the individual. To broaden my knowlege, I completed a course through Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine in Ayurveda. Also, because I am so passionate about disease prevention, I completed two more courses through Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine in Nutrition & Cancer and Prostate Cancer.
