New to the Counseling on Demand Team
Counseling on Demand supports an integrated system of wellness care, to that end we are excited to introduce new team members, critical in the components of wellness and mental health.
Mental health and physical health are intertwined, a complex process with many layered systems at play. If you are struggling with anxiety and depression look for fresh ideas from physical health and nutrition.
This is especially true in the case of self-care and chronic disease management. Changes in glucose levels, adding excess weight, changes in the aggressive complications of managing your condition while managing the stressors of life around you can complicate getting to a healthier life.
We are please to introduce Amber Hannon, MS, RD. She will bring her Wellness Coaching perspective to Counseling On Demand.
Amber Hannon, MS, RD
Her Focus Areas
Areas of Focus:
- Weight management (loss or gain)
- Meal planning
- Balanced nutrition for optimal wellness
- Plant based eating
- Bachelor of Science in Dietetics, James Madison University
- Master of Science in Dietetics, Central Michigan University
- Dietetic Internship, Virginia State University
As a Registered Dietitian for nearly a decade, motivating others to live healthier lives is more than a career choice for her.
How she came to this career area:
“Nutrition has inspired my life in a number of ways. I was obese, over 200 pounds, while in grade school. I learned how food fuels your body at an early age, lost over 60 pounds, and gained my life calling. “
Shortly after graduating college, she suffered from debilitating anxiety. Her interest in food and nutrients only escalated, as she focused on ways to additionally manage her struggles through diet.
Her Coaching Approach
“The ups and downs of life can make maintaining a healthy lifestyle difficult. In addition, navigating the best approach alone can be confusing and frustrating. My goal is to empower you to meet your wellness goals, feeling better than ever inside and out. Whatever your goals may be, I am excited to help you along the way”.
How She Can Help You
In addition to a baseline assessment to determine your starting point; Amber also will work with your personal preferences and life style goals to determine the best strategy to help you get to your best life with encouragement and empowerment.
All of this is easier with someone in your corner who has been there and overcome it.
Welcome to Counseling on Demand, Amber. Be sure select her as an option for your counseling and wellness needs. Dietician requirements vary by state, but Amber can help develop a plan that works for you in your area.
