the middle way
Promoting Health the Middle way is about CHANGE.
I have worked in the field of health and wellness for over thirty years as a nurse, health educator, and coach. I have also explored many spiritual paths and have helped others get in touch with a spiritual practice that works for them.
Promoting Health The Middle Way offers a realistic and practical blueprint for real people to enjoy the journey to change. My approach with my clients is to make lifestyle changes that last forever.
Think about these four questions:
What are you eating?
What are you drinking?
What are you doing?
What are you thinking?
The most important of these is What are you thinking? What you think is who you are, and what you do comes from what you think. Whether its about diet, exercise, how you communicate and relate to others, how you manage stress, or your career, it all comes down to what you think.
I offer coaching that goes beyond behavior and deeper into your thoughts, your philosophy of life, and your inner discovery of what matters most to you. I can help you become the person you want to be, and live an authentic life of health, happiness, and peace of mind.
Results my clients have achieved include:
♥ Long term weight loss and excitement about movement and exercise
♥ Stress Management and Spiritual Integration
♥ Time Management and a more organized life
♥ Discovery and Acceptance of the authentic self
♥ Completion of projects like a doctoral dissertation, starting a business, completing a book
♥ Clarity about the next steps in life, career, relationships
♥ Increased life satisfaction and energy
♥ More assertive and effective communication
♥ Guidance for communicating and improving relationship with children or teens
♥ A better relationship with their physician and medical team
♥ Lowered cholesterol, blood pressure, and risk for chronic disease
I was struggling with maintaining my focus on weight loss. Mary encouraged me to look at the big picture, and helped me become more mindful of what I was putting in my mouth. With Mary’s guidance, I am well on my way to achieving a healthier weight, and I feel much better equipped to meet the challenges that I will inevitably face. I now have a healthier lifestyle, not a “diet.
You have been a fantastic coach. Your direction and inspiration was what I needed to get moving towards my wellness goals. Thanks so much!!!
I have finally learned how to balance my life in a healthy way—my mental, physical, and spiritual “selves” I have identified my true passions in life and have started to aim towards building them into my daily life permanently. My self concept increases on a daily basis through self-care and positive thoughts.
You were great at keeping me focused and very good at re-wording my negatives into positives (a skill I greatly admire).
You have been a fantastic coach. Having a wellness coach that has really gotten to know me and help me set individualized, realistic goals has helped me become more fit, slowly and more permanently. Your direction and inspiration was what I needed to get moving towards my wellness goals. Thanks so much!!
Mary provided a helpful attitude that was just the right mixture of intuitive and non-judgmental. The coaching sessions were enjoyable and effective.
