Certified Integrative Health Coach and trained in Motivational Interviewing

My name is Barbara "Denise" Brannen and through Duke Integrative Medicine and the University of Massachusetts Medical School, I have acquired  expertise in helping clients like you evoke positive changes in their health and lifestyle.  In my previous career as a principal, I worked with many teachers, parents and students to achieve positive change.  Now I am taking my expert training to a new arena in health coaching. However, throughout the coaching process, you will always be the expert of your own life and through a partnership of non-judgment and empathy, we uncover your core power.

Many of the answers to how to make positive forward movement and get unstuck is through a collaborative effort between us that help you discover revelations within yourself.  Just like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, "you have always had the power."

My role is to support you through the process and help you develop a Personal Health Plan and realize your optimal health.
