Trained-in-Hormone-Cure-Badge(1)Kathryn is a Nutritionist and Holistic Health Coach certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.

She is also a certified Yoga teacher, Acupressurist and massage therapist, who trained in Chinese medicine modalities and practices.

Kathryn’s own positive experience with holistic alternative therapies led her obtain a Bachelor’s of Science from Clayton College of Natural Health and a Health Coaching Certificate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

During her training, she studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.

When I first started health coaching, most of my clients were following my advice and getting great results. Some were following my advice, doing all the right things, but were not meeting their goals.  No matter what they did, could not release weight and rid themselves of their annoying hormonal symptoms.

I wanted to help these people too, so I knew I needed more training and I wanted to find other ways to help. That’s why I went for additional training and got my Health Coaching Certificate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York and got additional training with Dr. Sara Gottfried, a Harvard trained gynecologist who believes in healing hormones naturally and wrote ‘The Hormone Cure’.
