Healthy Lifestyle Coaching

Empowering transformation through lifestyle behavior change

According to the CDC, approximately one in two people in the United States has at least one chronic health condition, such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, or hypertension, and one in four adults has two or more chronic health conditions.
 

Health coaching is a quickly-growing, modern approach to health care, focusing on health-behavior change and lifestyle medicine to optimize your health and well-being & prevent and manage chronic diseases.

A health coach partners with you to create a plan customized to you, your preferences, and your lifestyle, and helps you build healthy habits into your life one day at a time. From nutrition, movement and mindfulness to stress-management and sleep, health coaching gets to the root of the problem, unlike traditional diet and weight loss programs.

If you’re ready and willing to dedicate time to getting results the sustainable way – results that last – health coaching is for you.

Now it feels like I am controlling food and it’s not controlling me.  And I feel excited thinking about what more I can accomplish or how much more I can enjoy each day living like this. Working with Kristen has strengthened an ability to improve my mental health that I didn’t know I had.”
