"A full 80% of healing comes from constructing a meaningful treatment response, unique to you, which is internal and highly personal ... You can activate your own inherent healing processes and get your physician and others on board to help accelerate your healing journey."

Healthy Connections Coaching, LLC
Health & Wellness Coach and Consultant, Co-Founder

Within personal health concerns, I realized there were other systems of healing that paralleled the Western medicine model in which I was trained. Working on my own healing brought me to various complementary and alternative practices that supported me on various levels: mind, body, and spirit. 

I see firsthand the importance of having balance between life and work demands within my current health coaching role, both for myself and those I work with. I am passionate about using mind-body skills in order to realize optimal health and wellness. Read more about Lori, here.
