Move Toward a Higher Level of Health

Integrative Holistic
Health Coaching

— Work with Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

– Vivian Greene

With my integrative holistic health coaching, we will work together to elevate your physical, emotional/mental, and spiritual health and well-being by identifying the potential underlying causes of your symptoms, individualizing your diet, helping you to be thoroughly informed, and creating a strong self-care plan that empowers you to take control of your own healing journey , move forward with strength and confidence, and live life to the fullest.

 

At the core of my approach is the belief that the foundation for healing is built first and foremost with a diet and lifestyle that encourages health. This means that the food we eat and the way we live should be aligned with Paleo/Primal principles at the base, the way nature intended us to eat and live. While at the same time, recognizing that we are all unique biochemically and the need for individualization. Therefore, making simple changes in the diet is one of the most powerful self-care strategies at your disposal and it is the foundation of my holistic health coaching approach. 

More about integrative holistic health coaching

What can you expect in a session?

During a session with me you can expect to attempt to identify possible underlying contributors of your symptoms, clarify goals, develop a plan of action, get headed in the right direction, receive customized dietary guidelines and lifestyle approaches, troubleshoot roadblocks, a nutritional supplement assessment, supplemental reading material, and lab testing suggestions if desired.

 

From there, we strengthen the foundation with other holistic practices like mindfulness and breathwork and we may use functional medicine lab testing to go deeper or explore other avenues. In addition, we will investigate potential issues like microbial overgrowth, neurotransmitter imbalances, sympathetic nervous system activity, environmental toxicity, nutritional imbalances, and more.

 

Integrative holistic health coaching is client-centered and brings conventional and complimentary approaches together in a holistic and coordinated way to enhance all aspects of health and well-being on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.

Above all, at the heart of my philosophy is the belief that healing is a life-long journey, not a one-time event. It requires a passionate commitment and dedication to the goal. Sometimes not all conditions, syndromes, illnesses, or diseases can be completely “healed”, but they can, at the very least, be significantly improved and managed with the right interventions.

 

Being healthy or achieving optimal health is not always defined by the “absence” of disease or illness. It may also mean living and functioning as optimally as possible with your condition. Finding harmony and balance in the midst of the storm, while continuing to strive for a higher level of health.

 

Last but not least, I hold a firm opinion that responsibility for your health lies in your hands, not your practitioners. My goal is to help you take the reigns and lead the way. Empowerment is found by being as informed as possible about your conditions, the challenges that exist, and the options available to you.

Short-term

Goal-focused

Actionable

I can provide you with everything you need to begin moving toward a higher level of health and living your best life possible in one or two sessions, depending on how deep you want to go and the extent of support you would like. I’m not going to lock you into months of unnecessary coaching.


And when I come into the initial consult with you, I have already reviewed your intake forms, taken notes for a plan of action, and I’m ready to dive immediately into presenting you with an empowering self-care plan designed specifically for your needs. When you leave the session, you can put these steps into action instantly and begin your journey towards better health.


However, you can benefit greatly from additional sessions by working on a particular issue, concern, technique, remedy, etc., in more depth or for accountability and support. So, I am always here for ongoing consultations if you need or desire to go deeper
