I’m committed to supporting health coaches and nutrition practitioners build confidence in their ability to guide others while growing their practices to help more people live healthier, happier lives.
If you’re looking for support or mentorship, here’s how we can partner:
Client Case Study Session
Whether you’re just starting out or trying to expand your outreach, you many find yourself being approached by clients with “complex” health issues that you don’t feel qualified to handle just yet.
You might feel overwhelmed, inadequate, or fearful you don’t have all the answers. Don’t let that stop you from growing your practice. Don’t shy away from these tough cases. With the proper support, you take on these challenges, expand your practice, and grow as a nutrition educator and healer.
Stop referring clients to other “more experienced” practitioners.
I will work side-by-side with you behind the scenes so you can do extraordinary work and help your clients achieve their wellness goals, even if their cases seem challenging.
Bring me your tough cases and we’ll work through them together.

If you’re looking to shift from having a job to owning a business, this is for you.
You can take courses and purchase programs to expand your knowledge...OR you can invest in programs that will specifically result in increased revenue and growth for your business. Which sounds more productive?
I have invested almost $30,000 and over 7 years in specialized training within a wide range of nutrition and business strategies. Working together, I help streamline the business-building process for you. Through an in-depth partnership that lasts several months and builds to a powerful working relationship, you get access to best practices and proven approaches at a fraction of the cost and time commitment. I also refer clients to coaches whom I’ve mentored allowing you to expand your business as you learn.
Working with me as your mentor, you will learn:
- What training and continued education opportunities are best for you
- What technology to use to streamline your practice
- What kinds of liability insurance you need
- What form of business structure is ideal for you (LLC, sole proprietorship, C-corp, etc)

We need more health coaches and holistic practitioners
People are struggling despite their efforts to resolve their chronic health condition. Many people visit multiple doctors, specialists and nutritionists in search for the answer to their health concerns only to leave even more frustrated and confused. We must move away the band-aid approach to health. We need more practitioners who want to explore the root cause of disease and listen to the individual that is suffering. So often, the information needed to heal comes from the individual in pain. People need guidance and support. There are so many reputable and comprehensive programs available today whether you’re interested in personal growth or a complete change of career. Many programs are online/distance learning. Here is a brief overview of some of the programs I recommend. As always, I suggest you do your own research on the programs mentioned below and decide which, if any, are a good fit for you.
In addition to encouraging those interested in entering the health and nutrition field, I also support active or newly trained practitioners to take their business, their practice and their approach to service to a new level. This includes case studies, mentoring and best practices. For mentoring support, contact Kathleen.
Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) ™
IIN offers a Certified Holistic Health Coach program where you will learn over 100 dietary theories that will help you customize dietary protocols for clients based upon their unique bio-individuality. The benefit of this open-minded and individualized approach is that you will learn ‘how to think’ not ‘what to think.’ The teaching faculty is nothing short of amazing, including Andrew Weil, M.D., Mark Hyman, M.D., Deepak Chopra, M.D. and many more. IIN does not teach the clinical approach to nutrition so you will not learn to run lab tests or address more complex health conditions with this certification alone. But don’t underestimate the value of the counseling education at IIN. The teaching model addresses all aspects of health, like relationships, finances, spirituality and environment as your “primary foods ™” and the food we eat as “secondary foods.” You will also receive the necessary business tools to build a successful career and the connections you will make to students around the world is priceless.
As part the IIN Ambassador program, I am able to offer scholarships toward your tuition at any time. Upon enrollment, ask for the Ambassador Savings Offer and give them my name. If there’s another savings offer going on of equal or greater value, you will automatically receive that scholarship.
