Group Coaching Model

Being a board-certified Nurse Coach Entrepreneur has created opportunities that I longed for in my nursing career.  For over 15 years as a critical care Nurse, I struggled with our healthcare system that isn’t set up to allow for meaningful conversations and true, sustainable connections to patients.  Plus, it focuses on disease, and I wish there were no disease, so prevention is very important to satisfaction as a healthcare provider.

Creating my own Nurse Coaching business called Blue Monarch Health, PLLC allows me to practice as a Nurse who has time to share meaningful moments, to listen with great care and presence, and to partner with clients to help them discover their true health.  We focus on preventing and mitigating disease, instead of treating it and this hope brings clients power.

One way I do this is through small group education and coaching.  I attended the first Integrative Nurse Coach® Academy (INCA) and Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) functional nutrition educational collaboration.  Using the skills, concepts and tools I learned there, I established a small group coaching model to increase personal client discovery and growth.  We use the IFM’s Elimination Food Plan coupled with Nurse Coaching skills, education facilitation, and group member support to enhance a personalized understanding of how food affects participants health.

Small groups boost socialization and awareness by sharing ideas, stories, motivation and accountability, plus, it is fun!  As a Nurse Coach nothing is more satisfying than witnessing a ‘light bulb moment’; when a client truly grasps the impact that nutrition has on their body, mind and spirit, AND that they have the power to use nutrition and their own awareness as tools for their best health!

It is exciting to learn that Integrative Nurse Coach® Academy and Institute for Functional Medicine partnership is growing and that Nurse Coaches are using nutrition and functional medicine tools to enhance their client’s health and their own skills as Nurses.  I look forward to the next INCA/IFM collaboration, Functional Medicine for Nurses™ ™.

I hope you join us!
