You go to the doctor and are told the familiar, “you need to lose weight”, “you have to lower your blood pressure”, or “your diet needs to improve”. Easier said than done!
Being told what you need to do to improve your health is all good and well; but, how to do it is a different story. “I am busy with work.” “I have a family to take care of.” “I don’t have the finances.” “I don’t know where to start!” When you need to take what your doctor says and put it into action, that’s where your integrative health coach comes in!
What is Integrative Health?
Integrative health focuses on the well-being of the whole person, including the mind, body, and spirit. The core principle of integrative health is that each of the three aspects of the whole person affects the other two. Therefore, disease can be cured, prevented, or reduced by giving the right amount of care and attention to all three aspects. For example, high blood pressure can be caused by a combination of obesity (body), work stress (mind), and emotional stress (spirit).
How is integrative health coaching different from other types of coaching?
A coach is traditionally seen as an instructor or trainer. Not so with an integrative health coach. He/she serves only as a guide as the client takes a look at their whole health (body, mind, and spirit) and choose what health decisions best fit their life and values. During the coaching process, the client is the person in charge! They decide what is important for their well-being and set their health goals and actions steps. Meanwhile, the integrative health coach helps the client to think through all the things that impact a person’s ability to make a lasting change in their health behavior. The coach partners with the client to:
• find out what the client truly wants for their health and well-being
• identify the client’s priorities in life
• gather information about the client’s current health
• find out what area of health the client wants to make a change in
• explore how ready the client feels in making that change
• help the client set goals and action steps
Integrative health coaching provides a safe, supportive, and powerful way for you to bridge the gap between your doctor’s advice and making a lasting health change that is most meaningful for you.

About Kelly’s work:
Integrative Health Coaching:
The greatest impact on healthcare in the United States is the frequency of lifestyle-related chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and so on. An integrative health coach partners with you to create lifestyle changes that prevent or alleviate these chronic illnesses by helping you bridge the gap between your doctor’s advice and taking action. As an integrative health coach, Kelly will partner with you to assess your whole health (body, mind, and spirit), find out what you truly want for your well-being, and set goals and action steps towards a lasting health change that is most meaningful for you.
Used in over 800 hospitals such as Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic, Reiki is a Japanese relaxation technique that is natural, simple, safe and will put your mind and body at ease. Recommended by Dr. Oz, actress Halle Berry, pro golfer Phil Nickelson, Reiki is a go-to complementary treatment for anxiety, lack of sleep, and stress as well as pain relief and high blood pressure. Kelly is a second degree Reiki practitioner trained by 2 Reiki masters and will provide options for using aromatherapy and a weighted blanket during each session.
I have loved science for as long as I can remember, particularly biology. Growing up, I either wanted to be a veterinarian or a medical doctor so that I could use biology to help others. However, in college, I realized that I wanted to not only help others but also satisfy my investigative drive, and my investigative drive pushed me to become a developmental biologist.
My values of objective analysis, responsibility, concern-for-others, and achievement are greatly tied to feeling fulfilled in my job and career. However, after 12 years of laboratory research and 7 years as a certified clinical research professional, I felt a need to focus more on my value of concern-for-others. Also, my personal experience with various health issues led me to adopt an integrative health lifestyle that has helped me significantly. In addition to the conventional health care I receive, I also reap the benefits of Reiki, essential oils, deep tissue massage, lymphatic drainage massage, mindfulness practice, acupressure, and Qigong. By having had this experience, I want to help others become aware of the conventional and complementary approaches available to them for creating a healthy lifestyle as well as motivate them to sustain that lifestyle. It was time for change, and change led me to a career in integrative healthcare and starting my business, My Wealth in Health.
The goal of My Wealth in Health is to help others achieve their vision of optimal health through discovering methods of self-care that fit their values and needs. By doing so, we will be able to increase the quality of our lives to the fullest! The services will include integrative health coaching, Reiki healing, and creating personalized aromatherapy based on the client’s scent preferences, health profile, and safety concerns.

Lacy Frazer, Psy.D, CALC (Certified Authentic Leadership Coach, In progress)
Modalities: Coaching and Consulting
Business Name: Lacy Frazer Coaching & Consulting, LLC
DESCRIPTION OF PRACTICE AND MODALITIES: COACH APPROACHES: As an Authentic Leadership Coach, or Holistic Life Coach, I “coach to the Soul, as opposed to coaching to the goal.” My style of coaching focuses on empowering the client to uncover limiting beliefs and other blocks to living their best life. I draw on my training as a psychologist, coach, intuitive, and teacher when working with clients; and find that each client is unique in both their expression of their presenting issues/concerns, as well as their response to certain methods for healing. In other words, no single approach works for everyone. I am very open, discerning, and deliberate when evaluating what might be the best approach with a specific client. The following words describe the essence of my coaching: Soul Coaching, Transformation Coaching, Transition Coaching, Empowerment Coaching, Reentry Coaching.
TECHNIQUES/MODALITIES: I do not practice one specific modality but consider myself to have a toolbox from which to draw from with respect is needed for a particular client. As stated above, I draw on my experience as a psychologist, coach, intuitive, and teacher when coaching clients. I am familiar with the following methods and modalities: Intuitive Counseling; Positive Psychology; Motivational
Interviewing; EFT; Energy Medicine; Transformational Alchemy; CBT; and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction.
PROFILE: Lacy Frazer practiced as a Clinical Psychologist for 21 years working with incarcerated men in federal prison. Following her own spiritual awakening in 2006, Lacy developed an innovative, holistic and transformational self help program for offenders releasing from federal prison based in her belief that all people have innate value and talent, and have the ability to change their lives. Her program was highly successful as evidenced by the extremely low recidivism rates of her clients, as well as their successful release and reentry back into society, and commitment to live lives of service. Lacy retired from the Federal Bureau of Prisons in December 2017 with the dream of expanding her programs through the lens of Life Coaching. Lacy’s passion to help others live a life of meaning, purpose, and service has led to the creation of Lacy Frazer Coaching & Consulting, LLC.
