You’re in the right place! With my Functional Health Coaching and Health Consulting services, I can help you do all these things and more. I’ve overcome all the challenges of thirty-four years of autoimmune disease and fifteen years of disability, and I’m passionate about helping you to reclaim your life and to achieve your best health!

I’m Here to Help

With my health consulting, I’ll present you with an integrated approach to your chronic illness and/or chronic pain. I’ll also teach you about neuroscience and how to use it for your condition. I’ll give you more time than you’ve ever gotten from an expert to tell me your health story so that nothing gets overlooked. With that information, I’ll research your unique situation and create the most comprehensive personalized resource guide for making health changes that you’ve ever seen.

With my health coaching, I’ll help you create individualized, weekly and long-term implementation plans for health improvement. Coaching is my favorite part of my work because it’s where you’ll achieve lasting health gains. It is a privilege to see my clients grow and feel better across at least three months of our unshakable positive bond.

We’ll explore and apply your unique strengths to enact your ideal health vision in the realm of diet and lifestyle. I’ll use my skills and vast experience to collaborate with you through all the ups and downs to achieve your best health and best life!

My approach is informed by my decades of experience with solving my severe health problems and the book I’m writing with former Mayo Clinic doctor Jim Lemons regarding lifestyle changes, pain neuroscience, and the mindset required to survive and thrive through chronic health problems.

To ensure I could communicate these concepts and help you tap into their power to fuel change, I became an ADAPT Certified Functional Health Coach through Chris Kresser’s ADAPT Academy. Now I’m armed with motivational interviewing techniques and the Transtheoretical Model of Change. I can help you find the answers that engage your passion for life and activate your inspiration and values to attain your wellness goals.

I’m happy to work with you if you want to make changes on your own, or I’ll coordinate with your health care team.

My Experience and Understanding

In my health journey, I found it was just as challenging to figure out how to implement a proper protocol as it was to find the proper protocol. No health professional could grasp what living each agonizing minute of my life was like, let alone help me with all the changes I had to make. Sound familiar? I’ve been there and emerged with a better life with more vibrant health than I’ve ever had. I want to use everything I’ve learned to help you find your roadmap to your best health.

During my near-lifelong health problems, I became an endless source of empathy and motivational energy. I want to share that with you. I’ve felt the hopelessness of turning your life around when it seems like everything is against you, and you’re in intense pain and emotional distress. I know the depth of loneliness when no one grasps life with impaired health and the brutal voice of your inner critic when you’re unable to meet the standards of healthy individuals. I’ll never become discouraged or disappointed if setbacks arise. I understand.

When you’re working with me, I’ll be your ally and supportive confidant alongside you the entire way.

Success in All Health Scenarios

I gained insights from my health journey into the many nuances of living through impaired circumstances. I learned how to create reasonable goals for myself under extreme duress, such as when I was under the influence of multiple narcotics and muscle relaxers, could barely move, and had all day to implement changes. I’ve also succeeded when integrating high-intensity interval training despite having nerve pain and a schedule where I work around the clock–and the many scenarios between those extremes. I’m confident that we can find goals and action plans for your context.

What Others Say about Working with Me

I’m health coaching with Christopher and am absolutely grateful to have found him… when you go through illness over decades and build resilience as a survival method, you need someone on your side who gets it and who can help you go further by understanding the hardship of where you are and helping you get yourself to the other side.

Sybil S.

I feel so fortunate to have met Christopher! Finally I’ve found someone that shares my Autoimmune disease; not only have I been vindicated after so many years of visits with medical doctors, but now I have solutions that are helping me to heal.

Debbie A.

Christopher was a joy to have as a health coach! He is kind and the most nonjudgmental person I know. I could tell he sincerely empathized with me when I was going through bumps in the road. He helped guide me to a better place with my health issues and changed my life!

Two Ways to Work with Me

Option 1

A free 90-minute information gathering call to connect and see if we’re a fit to work together. Then a follow-up $500 two-hour initial health consultation with the possibility of long-term coaching and/or consulting.

This option is my favored approach with clients. It leads to the best outcomes to utilize me first as an expert and then as a coaching collaborator when ongoing support is needed. There is no obligation to sign up for future services after the initial free call or the two-hour consultation.

  • Free 90-minute information-gathering call

  • I spend up to 10 hours researching your case and making a personalized health resource guide

  • Neuroscience education

  • Two-hour consultation to present the guide and teach necessary ideas

  • After the initial consultation, sessions of 60-minute and 30-minute coaching or consultations are available for $125 and $62.50

  • Non-refundable Health Tune-up packages of four sessions are discounted 10% to $450 and $225

Option 2

A session or recurring sessions of health coaching. 60-minute and 30-minute health coaching sessions are $125 and $62.50.

This is the best option if you feel like you already have a good grasp of Functional and Lifestyle Medicine and where you want to go with your health. You immediately get my ongoing coaching services in this option but without a personalized resource guide or neuroscience education.
