Read what Robynn's clients have to say about her health and wellness coaching.

"I'm eating better overall and actually feel stronger than I’ve felt in my entire life."

My name is Alice and I live in San Diego. I was initially tentative on coaching for my weight loss, but ultimately decided a coach might really help me. And what a difference it made! I had been struggling with losing my last 15 lbs. (of 45lbs overall) for almost 2 years. As it turned out, what I needed was accountability, and just knowing that someone was there who cared that I was meeting my goals. Robynn was a great help in so many ways. I was suddenly even more motivated and determined to lose that weight.

 

We spoke weekly about my goals and various methods I might try to employ to meet them, such as getting better sleep, reducing my stressors, journaling, work-outs, supplements, cutting out alcohol and carbs, and finally long-term fasting. Something I never thought I’d be successful at on my own. But, with Robynn’s coaching, became one of the significant keys to my success. She really helped me drill down on what was going on in all these areas, and come up with ideas on fixing my pitfalls. I’m very happy to say that these days, I’ve not only met my weight goal (and have so far been able to keep it there), but I’m sleeping way better, have less stress, I'm eating better overall and actually feel stronger than I’ve felt in my entire life. I’m extremely happy with my results and keep reminding Robynn I couldn’t have done it without her.

Thanks much Robynn for all your help!

"The unexpected benefit of health coaching was the sense of agency and confidence I walked away with."

My path to wellness with Robynn took me through an effective but unexpected route. After talking to her about my eating habits and sleep during the shelter-in-place period of 2020, she made a suggestion that was obvious but had eluded me.

 

Assumptions I made about the difficulty of getting a new refrigerator and the disappointment I might experience if it didn't work out led me to make choices that were less healthy for me. Unpacking this issue and several others, I found Robynn was effective because she was kind, non-judgmental, creative, and patient. I am someone who likes to geek out on the science of health and had reservations about using a health coach who might not be as informed as a health care provider. Working with Robynn made me realize what makes coaching successful - thoughtfulness about what drives behavior, what modifications can nudge one towards a healthier life, and how to consider healthy behaviors in the broader context of life.

 

The unexpected benefit of health coaching was the sense of agency and confidence I walked away with. I would recommend Robynn to anyone seeking to improve the quality of their life through health coaching.

"...I found it was very helpful to have discussions with a coach over matters I found myself stuck on about things I wanted to complete but I did not know how to..."

Before coaching I was a part of an accountability group and it was helpful to keep me accountable for completing daily to weekly tasks. However, after coaching I found it was very helpful to have discussions with a coach over matters I found myself stuck on about things I wanted to complete but I did not know how to and with having someone to talk to about these things and then them offering solutions as well as check in to see how I was doing it helped me to know I had someone that was cheering me on front the sidelines per say. That was helpful for me!

During one of our sessions, my Coach Robynn recommended the book Grain Brain and I bought it! I was convinced that carbs, and in essence brain, are one of the factors of cause for my weariness and sleepiness. I appreciated the helpful tool recommended to me and now it's a means of applying the change of diet for my health.

I have had sleep issues for a long time, but wasn't aware of it until I met Robynn. Among many issues I experienced in my health and wellness, Robynn quickly grasped the major issue of my suffering which is the sleep problem. She taught me about sleep hygiene, and guided me to improve my sleep and build good sleep habits over 4 sessions. Sleep is so important that with the improvement of my sleep quality and hours, I became more focused and energized, and happier. I am grateful that Robynn was able to spot, prioritize, and solve my sleep issue which I had been struggling with for most of my lifetime.  Robynn is very patient and caring, she is passionate about helping people to improve health, and wellness with her qualification, expertise, experience, and heart. it was a delight to work with Robynn. 

 

I think it is always good to try something good and new.

Robynn's coaching is invaluable in identifying my root problem and having the tools  to help me solve my long time sleeping problem. I am very happy with the result.

"...I've had many therapist and insurance provided health coaches, none of them gave me the tools to succeed like Robynn."

I've been dealing with my health and weight for a long time and I was good about getting on track and getting off track. I've had therapists and coaching calls from my insurance but nothing compared to having a health coach like Robynn! She really cares and wants you to succeed. I liked having someone that held me accountable and provided solutions when needed. My biggest issue was cheating and beating myself up to the point of never getting back on track. To solve this she taught me constructive thinking habits, holding myself accountable but also being kind to me. 

 

As mentioned I've had many therapist and insurance provided health coaches, none of them gave me the tools to succeed like Robynn. She's great to talk to, kind, compassionate, all while guiding you through your journey with structure and accountability.

"She is warm, compassionate and knowledgeable on a vast number of health and self-care topics."

I always look forward to my sessions with Robynn. She is warm, compassionate and knowledgeable on a vast number of health and self-care topics. Her coaching style is extremely flexible and each session is tailored to my specific needs. I observed real measurable results even after a few sessions because we set reasonable goals and clear strategies to meet them. Some of these strategies include a specific daily workout we co-created, better sleep hygiene, and even identifying a local market to avoid because it often led to poor choices. Keeping a checklist right next to my workout station was really helpful. She also got through an important and stressful weeklong event in optimal health. Having someone to check in with regularly and get positive feedback helped me stay accountable and feel supported. I highly recommend Robynn and her wellness coaching service.

"Robynn is a calm spirited person..."

Robynn is a calm spirited person, listened well and took notes, also her ability to redirect me back to the original question asked or topic of the session. Determination to help come to some solution or conclusion before ending session. Her supportive attitude and open mindedness was helpful for me to open up and just be me.

"At first if I cheated I'd beat myself up and then eat even more bad food. Now I have learned to forgive myself."

"Robynn is very easy to talk to and is good at challenging you in a way that's easy to handle."

"It was nice to have someone who understood sugar addiction."
