Become a Referral Partner and Support Your Patients in Achieving Their Wellness Goals
Are you a medical professional whose patients require more accountability, education, and support than you have time to provide in your practice? I can help bridge this gap in their treatment plan for improved outcomes.
Your Time is Valuable, Let's Partner Together to Create Real Change
You Want the Absolute Best for Your Patients:
- Are you tired of giving advice to your patients.. yet nothing changes?
- Are you frustrated that you don't have enough time to educate your patients more closely on healthy nutrition, lifestyle habits, and behavior change?
- Are your patients frustrated with a lack of results because they need more accountability and hand-holding than you have time to provide to them?
With ever-increasing demands on an MD's time, there's precious little time available to do collaborative patient education that creates lasting change.
As a doctor, your time is at a premium. In your patient encounters, you may only have time to make recommendations and outline a plan, but some of your patients need close support and assistance in implementing that plan.
That's Where I Come In
My role is to educate, empower, and inspire your patients.
As a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach and Functional Medicine Practitioner, I coach my clients through the lifestyle changes needed to improve their diet, reduce stress, and develop healthier lifestyle habits. I help your patients understand the care plan you created for them.
Together, we implement the complex lifestyle changes that are often required to make significant improvements in their health. I have created a simple referral system so you can quickly and easily get your patients the personalized accountability, education, and support they need to make changes that last.
What Are the Benefits of Referring Your Patients to a Health and Wellness Coach?
- Experience improved health outcomes for your patients, which means even more satisfied patients and positive reviews for you.
- Your nutrition and lifestyle recommendations will be communicated in an effective way that your patients can understand and adhere to.
- You'll be empowering your patients to improve their own health through nutrition and lifestyle changes that will serve them for life.
- Increase your available time and satisfaction, knowing that the education and coaching component of your patients' wellness strategy has been taken care of by a qualified wellness professional.
- You can outsource the time-consuming tasks of patient education, motivation, and support so you can focus on other things.
- You'll increase your own revenue potential by freeing up your available time for more patient visits and networking opportunities.
THE BENEFITS OF COACHING
Research Shows that Patient Outcomes Improve with Health Coaching
In fact, the American Medical Association has this to say:
"Health coaching is a team-based approach that helps patients gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to become active participants in their care. The old saying, “Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he eats for a lifetime” demonstrates the difference between rescuing a patient and coaching a patient. Patients with chronic conditions need to learn how to fish. Health coaching can be supplemented with health literacy strategies and effective communication techniques, such as ask-tell-ask, teach-back and/or action planning to ensure patient comprehension of their care plans and help them achieve their goals.
Working collaboratively with patients on health care decisions can improve lifestyle choices and prompt behavior change. The physician can delegate the personalized planning task to a team member (a health coach) who engages with patients (and their families) who have chronic conditions or complex health needs. Research shows that health coaching has a significant positive impact on patient health. Having a health coach as part of the team may help the practice meet quality metrics, improve patient satisfaction and behavior change, and free up physician time."

Meet the Coach
Hi, I'm Bethany Parker
As an award-winning, functional medicine health coach and high-performance mentor, I understand the importance of achieving optimal health and wellness through multifaceted, holistic approaches. My passion lies in helping high-achieving women find real-world solutions that nourish their bodies, so they can show up with renewed energy in every area of life (without burning out!).
In my professional practice, I specialize in helping overworked and stressed women identify the root cause of their health conditions and make diet and lifestyle changes, allowing them to regain their health and feel their best. A few of the conditions that my clients struggle with include autoimmune disease, digestive issues, fertility challenges, hormonal imbalances, mood disorders, and more.
In addition to my three graduate degrees, I am a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, the School of Applied Functional Medicine, and the Herbal Academy. I am certified by the International Association of Health Coaches (IAHC), the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaches (NBC-HWC), and an active member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP).
I Bring the Expertise & the Heart
Functional medicine saved my life, and now it’s my mission to help others find this same sustainable health.
I was experiencing my own set of serious health issues – IBS, anxiety, and depression (to name a few). My symptoms became so debilitating that I opted out of school and studied at home.
Between rushed doctor’s appointments and bottles of pills, I felt pretty hopeless. And by the time I got to college, I was on so much medication, I ended up rolling my car and barely made it out alive.
This was the breaking point for me.
Determined to get off the pills, I began my journey into holistic health, which continued to snowball into a growing passion for functional medicine, herbalism, and mindfulness practices.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
The ideal candidates may have hormonal imbalances, digestive complaints, chronic fatigue, or other chronic health conditions. They may be under a high level of stress and juggling the demands of their busy lifestyle. They should be highly motivated to change their lifestyle but may need some guidance and support to take the first steps. Once you complete the referral form, I'll get in touch with your patient directly to discuss their program options and enrollment details so they can get started quickly.
