I am Cathy Powers, an Integrative Nutrition* Health Coach, wife and a loving mother of two. I became a Health Coach to fulfill my desire to improve health and family life for people who are interested in living a clean and healthy lifestyle and need guidance during, what could be, an overwhelming process. I have been on a journey to a cleaner, green life for myself and my family since 2011. The process has been, and still is, completely overwhelming, but slow and steady is winning the race to a healthier lifestyle. I hope that the information here will help you start or continue your journey. Your body will love you for it.
I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I received in-depth training in nutrition, health and wellness, coaching skills, and business development. I also hold a Master of Arts and Liberal Studies degree and a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Stony Brook University. I lead workshops on nutrition and offer individual health and nutrition coaching.
It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to explore their wellness goals with a trained professional. As an Integrative Nutrition* Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that enables you to articulate and achieve your goals. Throughout my education, I have been exposed to the most cutting-edge dietary theories and studied highly effective coaching techniques to help you find the right lifestyle that works best for you.
Most approaches to healthy eating dwell on calories, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to explore basic improvements and implement gradual changes during our work together. As these pieces accumulate, my clients find these changes collectively creating a much larger impact than they originally anticipated. We work on what they want to improve within the circumstances of their unique situation.
