Soul Shine Health & Wellness

Lauren Crawford, Holistic Health Coach & Counselor, LPCA, NCC, M.Ed.
My Training

I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition's cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program.

During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.

I also received a Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling from NC State University in 2010. I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPCA) and am working towards full licensure as an LPC. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor as well. I studied undergrad at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. With my background in psychology and counseling and my most recent certification as a Holistic Health Coach, I believe I can help you create and achieve your personal goals and gain greater insight into your life and the choices you make. My goal is that by the end of our work together, you will be living a healthier and happier life!
