Stress isn’t all in your head.
It’s in your body, too.

Chronic stress takes a toll on the mind + body. By getting to know your unique stress response, you can discover ways to work with stress, instead of against it.

As a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach and Safe and Sound Protocol Practitioner, I help you discover ways to regulate your response to stress more independently and consistently. 


My approach is grounded in an understanding of our nervous</span class=”pink”> system</span class=”pink”> functioning. I blend strengths-based coaching</span class=”pink”> with the science of self-compassion</span class=”pink”>, positive</span class=”pink”> psychology</span class=”pink”> and the mind + body connection. 


Hi there! I’m Amy.

I help clients regulate their stress response more consistently and independently so they can feel, think and connect better.

I work with clients in two ways. First, with stress and wellness coaching I help clients work with their stress response instead of against it. From here, they have greater capacity to reach health and wellness goals of all types. Second, as a Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) Practitioner, I am certified to offer Dr. Stephen Porges’ non-invasive intervention based on his polyvagal theory. The SSP uses filtered music through an app on your phone.

Amy Hadden Health CoachI’m a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC), the gold standard for health coaches. Additionally, I hold certification from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy whose training is offered in partnership with the Institute for Functional Medicine. I also have a Specialization in Foundations of Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania.  


As your coach, I’m your partner as you climb mountains of wellness. You plan the trek. You take the steps. I help you navigate obstacles, watch your footing, and remind you of your tools for the journey. I’m not the track coach with the whistle yelling at you to run faster or the teacher giving you a health report card. I’m your ally in taking small steps to deep health.

I get to help you unlock motivation, to dream, and to ask “What if?” My favorite thing is celebrating those unique strengths of yours. I believe the beautiful traits at the core of who you are form the bridge you cross to get from a ho-hum here, to a heart-singing there.


Your response to stress lays the foundation for your health.

My Story

Once upon a time I was a teacher, and my students taught me the connection between the body and mind.

Then, I was a wear-all-the-hats entrepreneur, and the stress made a lasting impact on my very being. Somewhere in there, I became a functional medicine nerd, reading all I could about systems-based biology. Next, I clung to each word as I fought to find answers to mysterious symptoms that left me with a shadow life.

Finally, I began to find deeper health by learning to work with my nervous system. Today, I embrace self-compassion over self-criticism, listening to my body to create the gentle rhythms it and my soul crave.
