5 Important Ways Life Coaching and Values Correspond
Nutritionist Lynae Smith, talks about her transition into Life Coaching after becoming frustrated with the one-dimensional nature of nutrition counseling. She is now using tools gained from many years in counseling clients with eating disorders, as well as values she brings to the table, to work with individuals on a more whole body perspective.

Ruby. A Heart Stone.
From a Grateful Client:
“Before working with Lynae, I had only seen hospital-based outpatient dietitians. The sessions were monotonous and filled with advice I could have given myself. I didn’t know what to expect or what I could get from an outpatient dietician, but I hoped there was more. Working with Lynae was a vastly different experience. Sessions were a combination of nutrition, therapy, and healing connection.
I learned about what really goes on inside my body- digestion, repair, metabolism, etc. – as opposed to what diet culture told me about my body- certain foods and portions are bad, carbs and fat make me gain weight, etc.. We worked to understand the underlying struggles and influences that led to my food, body, and exercise beliefs. Lynae adapted to my changing needs- varying levels of nutrition guidance- and never lacked new ideas of ways to challenge me. She was vital in my journey towards healing my relationship to food, exercise, and my body, towards self-trust and becoming the expert on my own body.”
