Clinical Psychologist, Nutrition Coach, and Personal Trainer
Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.

“You restrict your calories, you lose weight, then you go off the diet. In the process, your metabolism has dropped significantly, and now it’s way easier for you to put on weight. […] That’s one of the biggest long-term problems with [calorie-focused diets]. I prefer people to look at being more mindful, being more intuitive, being more connected with their food […] which is probably the most effective way to change your eating and impact your weight long term.”
