Noticed the blue and white badge on the upper right-hand side of the webpages? Wondering what it's for? Last year I set a goal for myself to get certified as a health coach by the end of the year, which I sat for in December.
Yes, I passed and as a recipient of this designation, I am recognized as being able to effectively coach others in relation to their health goals, while staying in my scope of practice. A Certified International Health Coach understands and practices active listening, holds a client accountable and works towards creating lasting change through positive behavior modification. Additionally, the coach follows professional and ethical standards.
I am proud of this new professional designation, so even if it doesn't match the rest of my website, I don't care!
