Holistic Health and Weight Management Coaching
Holistic Health and Weight Management Coaching with Alyson
Weight management and nutrition goals are highly personal and may look very different for each person. You may have tried several different diets, exercise programs, lifestyle changes, or other weight loss programs and felt frustrated at a lack of progress or by not being able to sustain the results. Often these methods are ill-advised or “fad” diets that can lead you down a long road of roller coaster dieting, with very short-lived results. Our holistic health and weight management program takes a person-centered, whole health approach that considers stress, hormones, sleep, activity levels, environment, vocation, and all other lifestyle factors that affect our weight and intake of food.
Alyson’s philosophy is to empower patients with the knowledge and skills to improve their health through evidence-based behavior modification techniques, lifestyle education, and a team-based support system for long-term, easily sustainable results.
