"Since my session with Kiam, I’ve felt lighter, freer, more in touch with and motivated by my health and wellness goals. Kiam is such a lovely presence. I felt seen, witnessed, and encouraged—as well as taken to task in all the right ways."

Changing habits and attaining optimal health is hard—and even harder alone.

Whether you’re trying to lose weight, eat healthier, or achieve other related health goals, it can feel like there’s an infinite amount of advice out there.

Some of it is conflicting, and it’s hard to know what’s trustworthy nutritional counseling in the first place.

Maybe you’ve subscribed to a diet plan or followed a particular guru or fitness program, but you’re always wondering: does this even apply to me?

And when it’s time to follow through with a plan…there’s no one holding you accountable. You end up feeling aimless, alone, and wondering what’s the point of continuing.

We can help!

At Synergy Integrative Health & Wellness, we provide nutritional counseling and holistic health coaching to help you make better decisions daily.

We’re passionate about caring for the whole person and honoring the role that nutrition plays in every aspect of your health.

Our integrative team includes an integrative and functional registered dietitian and a certified holistic health coach.  Together, they will work with you to design an individualized program based on your needs and goals.

With their support, you will:

  • Simplify and clarify goals
  • Identify doable action steps
  • Develop healthy new behaviors


At the end of your program, you’ll be better able to sustain positive changes to enhance your health and wellness—and live a happier, healthier, and fuller life.

"I worked with Amy on and off for about a year. My primary goals were to lower my cholesterol, improve my A1c score, decrease heartburn, and learn healthy, scientifically sound lifestyle habits. Amy is kind and non-judgmental, gives realistic advice, and supports small, sequential changes. I appreciated all her help and support and recommend her expertise to anyone wanting to learn about the science and connections between eating, movement, and sleep."

"Amy has been incredible to work with! She not only comes to every session with a plethora of knowledge, but a sense of reality that food tastes good. I’m so happy with the progress I’ve made while working with Amy, and I can’t wait to see continued growth!"

Frequently Asked Questions

A holistic health coach is a wellness professional who works with individuals to help them achieve optimal health and well-being by taking a comprehensive and holistic approach. Their focus often includes areas such as nutrition, exercise, stress management, sleep, and emotional well-being, to promote balance and vitality in all aspects of a person’s life.

While there can be some overlap in addressing aspects of well-being, the key difference is that holistic health coaches concentrate on general wellness and lifestyle choices, whereas therapists are trained to diagnose and treat mental and emotional health issues.

Holistic health coaching encompasses a well-rounded approach to overall well-being. While it includes diet and exercise, it goes beyond to address the interconnected aspects of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

You can expect a personalized experience focusing on improving your overall well-being. A session typically includes goal setting, tailored guidance on lifestyle, support for making positive changes, education on various health aspects, and a holistic approach that considers the interconnected nature of physical, mental, and emotional health. You can also anticipate emotional support and accountability from your coach.

A registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN), also known as a registered dietitian (RD), is a credentialed healthcare professional who applies evidence-based information about nutrition and diet to contribute to the health and wellness of individuals, groups, and communities.

All dietitians are nutritionists, but not all nutritionists are dietitians. The difference between these two professions is the type of training each receives and their scope of practice.

In addition to the RD training, a registered dietitian who holds the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner (IFNCP) credential has completed five tracks (over 24 months) of functional and integrative nutrition training on a wide array of topics (including gastrointestinal disorders, cardiovascular disease, obesity and weight management, metabolic detoxification, and more), passed the IFNCP exam, and kept up with ongoing education to maintain the certification.

Due to their education and licensure, it is within a registered dietitian’s scope of practice to provide Medical Nutrition Therapy for specific health conditions and chronic illnesses. With these combined certifications, an RD with a functional background will not only focus on your particular health condition but help you to find and address the root cause.

Yes! Weight loss is not as simple as “calories in–calories out.” It involves optimizing the functioning of your entire body. Your registered dietitian will look at the types of food and beverages you’re consuming along with your meal timing, sleep patterns, exercise patterns, stress level, and more to help you achieve your weight loss goals. If you have stubborn weight loss, your team can help look at the root cause, which may involve poor gut health, blood sugar imbalance, and/or hormonal shifts.

Not necessarily. RDNs can also help individuals with goals such as longevity, exercise performance, food allergies, and intolerances, increasing energy levels, improving sleep, and more. RDNs can also help individuals improve their relationship with food through intuitive eating principles if desired.

Yes! Research shows that your microbiome provides over 90% of our total body serotonin, a hormone that creates a long-lasting feeling of happiness or well-being. For this reason and many others, what we eat is directly linked to mental health.

Absolutely. Just as in Western medicine, integrative and functional nutrition is evidence-based and makes recommendations based on the outcomes of randomized controlled trials.
