INTEGRATIVE NUTRITION HEALTH COACH
I am a Board Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach who specializes in digestive wellness and gut health. My coaching business focuses on clients who are health conscious and proactive, but still suffer from the unpleasant effects of gut dysfunction, including but no limited to poor digestion, hormonal imbalance, skin issues, anxiety, depression, fatigue, allergies, insomnia and brain fog. My work allows my clients to overcome issues such as candida, eliminate chronic bloating, control Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), manage stress, establish a healthy immune system and achieve glowing skin. My health coaching encompasses a comprehensive review of my clients’ health history, setting manageable goals, and creating an accountability system to examine and review these goals on an ongoing monthly basis. As a part of my integrative approach to wellness, I make health effortless for my clients, supporting them in discoveing their unique diet and lifestyle blueprint, as there is no one size fits all approach. I support my clients in reclaiming their power to get truly healthy by attacking and eliminating their health issues at the root. I teach them how to activiate and support their body’s detoxification systems and organs, while using food for fuel. I also offer online comprehensive programs for those clients who want to work at their own pace from the comfort of their own home. These programs can also include one on one coaching either over the phone or through skype.
“I started working with Susan as my overall health had significantly declined over a period of years. Among other serious illnesses, including two autoimmune diseases, I was struggling with ongoing IBS. I had lost a great deal of weight, had little appetite, extreme exhaustion, recurrent yeast infections and mood swings.
It was clear I was in desperate need of radically improving my eating habits, restoring a previous focus on self care and finding ways to build resistance to my ongoing infections which contributed to my autoimmune imbalance. I was looking for an integrative approach to combat these issues through a pivotal awareness of the mind-body connection.
From the start, Susan was an exceptional practitioner whose vast knowledge of many diseases, their origins and her amazing integrative program came to turn my life around. She worked with me to significantly change my eating habits and introduced me to much needed supplements which came to reduce my need for medications that were literally destroying my health. Her focus on stress reduction, exercise and ways to enhance self care improved my emotional and physical well being. Gradually my flare ups from my autoimmune diseases diminished in intensity and frequency. It was the first time in many years that I began to feel a sense of hope and empowerment.
Susan is an incredibly sensitive, thoughtful and compassionate woman who dealt with my emotional and physical challenges with empathy, support, insight and a seemingly relentless drive to help me through it all. She was always available to me which was so important as I needed guidance in many instances. She became such a powerful force in my life that I still say to myself, in times of crisis and uncertainty, “what would Susan tell me?” or “do what’s right for you”. These words are embedded in my mind and heart.
I would highly recommend working with Susan as her program can be used by anyone impacted by so many health issues which I strongly believe conventional medicine cannot address. After many years of seeking the help of specialists which were unable to help me, I felt so fortunate to work with Susan who helped me find a healthy lifestyle.”
I was diagnosed with lyme disease several years ago and had been suffering many terrible side effects of this disease. Susan helped me with my chronic pain, and with my incredible fatigue. She came up with a personalized lifestyle routine and nutrition plan that I truly believe gave me back my life. She was patient with me as I made very small but effective changes each week. I felt like I now had a plan and was on a good path to recovery. Susan supported me and understood the emotional toll this had taken on me and how intensely it affected my life.
“My goal in working with Susan was to find answers to my debilitating health problems. After months of seeing doctors, and receiving no answers from them, I wanted help from someone open to actually hearing and seeing me as a person. Insight, guidance, humanization. The medical system really takes these things away, while Susan provides them.
Susan listened to me. She didn’t give up when my tests showed nothing was “wrong”. She looked further at blood work and saw some red flags that I was unaware of. She checked in and cared. She gave me a voice, helping me navigate and advocate for my own health when my other physicians were not communicating. Now I know how to advocate for myself and take supplements to help support my immune system.
I would describe Susan as kind, insightful, positive, genuine- she treats you as a human being, not a sick person who gets a time slot and they are onto the next. She hears you.
I would recommend Susan to anyone who is not feeling their “normal”, anyone in chronic pain, anyone who has mysterious symptoms that can’t be figured out. I will absolutely work with Susan again.”
“I started seeing Susan for my three daughters who were experiencing symptoms that were not being addressed properly by traditional medical doctors. All of us worked with her individually as well as in group settings. She educated us on how we can best lead a healthier lifestyle, and addressed each of my daughters issues separately.
With Susan’s help, we isolated certain food and environmental sensitivities that we’re making us all unwell. Between the four of us, we reduced migraines, healed from eczema, recovered from digestive issues, and sleep much better now. I am grateful to have worked with Susan and so are my girls.”
I started seeing Susan last year because of reoccurring migraine and sleep issues I was having. I felt that the medication I was taking was making it hard for me to concentrate. I wanted to get to the bottom of why I was having headaches because they were negatively effecting so many areas of my life. Susan worked with me to figure out my specific triggers and now I can go months without having a headache or migraine. I am sleeping better than I have in years and I am so grateful that my neighbor recommended Susan to me. I will definitely go back to see her if I ever have any other health issues. She is a very kind and competent health practitioner and I highly recommend her.
