GINA STRACUZZI

Integrative Nutrition Health Coach

As the on-staff Health Coach for NoVA Hypnosis & Wellness, I am here to help you establish and reach your personal wellness goals.  That means that I will be part personal cheerleader and part accountability mentor.  My job is to help keep you on track, to help you understand the control you do have, and to help you focus on the future healthy you! In short, I help you take responsibility for your health, in a motivating and supportive fashion.

Some common areas where I can provide help include weight management, food cravings, sleep, energy, stress management, and digestion, just to name a few. As your Health Coach, Iwill encourage and support positive changes based on behavioral choices and will provide you with a basic understanding of dietary patterns and overall health needs.

In addition to reaching your specific goals, I will help you to recognize your body’s responses to the various lifestyle and dietary modifications you try so you can choose the health-promoting behaviors that work best for you.

In our work together, you will be the driver and I’ll be your “co-pilot.” Think of it like you are going on a road trip with someone who “has your back;” someone you can share your health struggles, hopes and goals with–without judgement!   A bit mixing of metaphors there, I know, but I’m hoping it will help you visualize the client-coach relationship: It’s a journey, taken with a guide and the destination is a healthier you!

Working with a health coaching in combination with a hypnotistis the kind of “one-two punch” that can help you reach your health goals faster and maintain them more effectively.  The hypnotist can help you to address deep-seated issues or ongoing obstacles that have made weight-loss difficult or unsustainable and I, as your coach can help you implement healthy changes and stay on track.

If you have any questions about working with a health coach, please feel free to reach out to me personally at  gina@novawellnessandassociates.com or call me on 703-295-7371.  I’m Happy to answer any questions you may have.
