Fran Paradine partners with those who are struggling to overcome the mental and emotional roadblocks that keep them from reaching their optimal health. After spending 17 years in the mental health field and 10 years as a small business owner, Fran knows how difficult it can be to create lasting changes.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who also holds a Certification in Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching, Fran understands the emotional aspects connected with the lifestyle choices we make every day. She has counseled hundreds of individuals, mentored many more, and has created a coaching program that addresses all aspects of health to help her clients make sustainable healthy lifestyle changes that are in line with their individual goals. Fran understands that any change that is to be sustained over time needs to address all areas of our lives. Creating a healthy lifestyle means ensuring that all elements of our lives are in sync with our health goals and are working together to move us towards those goals. Lifestyle changes require a commitment to exploring all aspects of our health and Fran’s programs are designed to do just that. She believes in the power of compassion and community and knows that true change can only take place within a trusting relationship.
The entire coaching process with Fran was great! In addition to the topics I wanted to cover, she helped me through situations that came up during our time I didn’t anticipate. I was so thankful to be working with her. There is rarely a day that goes by that I don't think of something she said to me or taught me.
I have trained, I have competed, I have dieted all within varying degrees of success in my life. This 12 week process with Coach Fran has had the single largest impact on the psychological impact of overall health. The journey was not as I had initially planned, but well worth the time and money devoted to this process. It’s a cliche to say, “you will get out of the journey what you put into it”, but I think it’s very apropos to use this wisdom for this course.
My chiropractor recommended that I contact Fran for health coaching, so glad I did! Fran is very skilled and passionate about what she does in helping others. I valued all of our sessions and the progress/goals she has helped me attain, I couldn’t have done it without her.
