One of the coolest things about being a writer for many years (and a bit of a hoarder) is that I get to read through old journal entries from different seasons of my life.
As I read, I’ve smiled to myself at what I felt was important as an 18 year old and relish in my growth and knowledge of boys since then.
My heart brakes for that young 20 something version of me that struggled with confidence for Such- A- Long- Time.
My belly sinks when I read about how miserable I felt over things I believed were far out of reach and outside of my control in my late 20s and early 30s.
Joy seemed unattainable for most of my existence on this earth.
In 2015, I was introduced to a Certified Integrative Health Coach through a health initiative program I was leading at work at the time. I got the opportunity to work with her and it was literally life changing.
An Integrative Health Coach assists people in leading happier, healthier lives by providing support and accountability in the areas of self- care, envisioning, and planning.
Since then, Integrative Health Coaching became not only something I personally experienced as beneficial for my health but it became a calling.
I’ll skip some stuff you might find boring and fast forward three years.
I am now proud and happy to call myself an Integrative Health Coach trained at Duke Integrative Medicine.
My personal and professional background has led me to want to best support people who are caretakers.
You know who you are!
✅ Moms and dads that forget they were people before becoming parents.
✅ Adults who care for other adults.
✅ Where are my social workers at?!? 🙋🏽♀️
✅ The people who for whatever reason place others continuously before themselves every single time.
If this is you- let’s chat!
I want to tell you all about this integrative health stuff and how placing a little realistic focus on you can transform your life too!
