Very intuitive, genuine & insightful. I enjoy speaking openly and feeling how connected Amy is as a coach.
“Amy is my go-to health coach for my thriving Functional Medicine practice. I don’t have the time or knowledge to identify HOW to get patients to comply with my (sometimes complex) recommendations. Enter, Amy! She adds an extra layer of support a patient needs to feel completely understood, supported and successful. I don’t know anyone that wouldn’t benefit from working with Amy. If I had to describe her in a nutshell, she’s “that” teacher that was your favorite in elementary school who has turned her passion from loving on kids to selflessly helping people along her God-given journey, and makes you feel like her best-friend along the way. Her gentle spirit is nonjudgemental, encouraging and she is armed with so many state-of-the-art tools, techniques and resources you will leave empowered beyond your dreams.”

Amy’s voice, manner, way of speaking, and whole self is calming. Facing food/weight issues is hard and she makes is easy to think about and change my internal dialogue from negative to an outlook of empowerment and hope.
Amy is a gracious and thoughtful coach. She offers the wisdom of having navigated her own health journey, as well as her extensive training on how to help her clients grow and flourish. She is warm and approachable, her coaching skills are intuitive and skilled, allowing her clients to feel both heard and supported all while encouraging a sense of ownership and self-efficacy in their own lives and choices. I observed excellent rapport and trust built through her remarkable listening skills and the compassion that Amy brings to each coaching session. She builds connection and partnership with her strong motivational interviewing skills, compassionate listening, and excellent attention to detail. Her passion for health and wellness are clearly evident in her own life and are the fuel that drives her to support her clients in their own health journey. I have been consistently impressed with her professionalism, skill, and her warm dedication to her clients.

“I really like the way Amy helps me find solutions to my problems; she doesn’t tell me what I want to hear or make any demands, she simply coaches the answers out and then summarizes what I said. It’s such a positive feeling and I feel like I have all the tools I need to get to my goals. I look forward to my talks with Amy and find that knowing I have an appointment with her keeps me honest and on track. I’ve made progress on all my health goals and discovered how to trade all or nothing thinking for small steps and a much kinder voice towards myself.”
The greatest thing I valued from our time together was Amy’s gentle reminders of truth I needed to hear – and at just the right moment. Her preparedness was evident, as well as her listening ear to remain in the moment – always ready and willing to lead in my heart’s direction. Chronic health issues are a journey and when you find providers who are genuinely invested in your case – and life – it can make all the difference.
Amy is intuitive about people’s needs and where they are in their journey so she instantly connects. She allows me to pick my own plan but suggests ideas I never would have considered that brought a wholeness of self to my single-minded focus on food.
Coaching has helped me vocalize thoughts that I already had but had not been brave enough to face. I really appreciate Amy’s insights, patience and how she pays attention to even the smallest details and connect all the experiences as a whole.
“For the last several years, I have been feeling very alone in my life journey, very depressed, hopeless. Life seemed very dark to me. I had weight gain and health issues, an awful financial situation, jobs ending, then stressful jobs and a relationship that seems to be at the center of it all and that I do not know how to get out of. It all feels so interconnected, like a huge ball of twine that I have no idea how to begin to unwind. Add in the COVID-19 global pandemic situation and the mess became overwhelming for me. No forward movement or making decisions was easier than trying to find solutions. As my coach, Amy listened well and asked me questions that no one has asked me. At the end of my first coaching session, it was like a little ray of sunshine happened. She helped me to begin to find little bits of joy, which in turn helps me to begin to figure out how to unwind the mess.”
I found it really helpful to formulate and envision a detailed plan regarding a workout routine that would fit my lifestyle.
