Cathy Bakker IIN Certified Health Coach


The deep, intentional work that I have been doing with Cathy over the past four months has been incredibly meaningful and valuable. During each session, Cathy has been wonderfully present, remarkably prepared, and exceedingly supportive. Significant shifts have occurred in my life as a result of the time, sincere warmth and care, and attention that Cathy has wholeheartedly dedicated to my healing and personal and professional growth processes.

As an integrative health and wellness coach, I use a holistic approach to help clients achieve optimal wellness.  

This whole person approach allows clients to examine all aspects of their life that contribute to health.

Health is not just about what you eat.  Superior wellness encompasses a myriad of elements that comprise our lives. 

The cornerstones of wellness are:
+nourishing relationships
+nourishing exercise
+nourishing life’s work
+nourishing spiritual path

Other areas that are examined during client visits include sleep habits, relaxation techniques, creative expression, environmental toxins and other areas of life that we don’t often realize largely effect our quality of health.

Cathy Bakker is a IIN Certified Health Coach specializing in supporting clients that wish to resolve health issues and enhance their overall wellness. I began my work in the health and wellness field after losing myself in a true fight for me and my daughter’s life. After years of painful struggling to identify a grappling illness that devastated me and my daughter, I decided to take control and discover the path to healing through my own wellness journey. By identifying my calling, I was able to find the right solution to health and wellness for me and my daughter. I use my personal experience, training, knowledge and intuition to help clients save their own lives and live their very best life.

How does Cathy work with her clients? By identifying my clients best life unlived and pinpointing personal road blocks that stand in the way of this, I help my clients to discover the areas of life that need attention. My work is less about food and more about allowing people to find who they’re meant to be. By inquiring with high mileage questions, I provide customized tools and strategies to help clients define their goals and meet them.  I help my clients to identify and leverage their strengths and intuition to achieve their goals, target and remove the blocks to joyful life experiences. I encourage clients to pay close attention to their inner voice. By peeling back the intricate layers, I work with clients to identify the root cause of their issues and the results are life-changing. My work guides clients to examine how their thoughts and beliefs about themselves affect their well being and in turn, I support them in looking at themselves in a new way and help them to find the answers they need to live better lives. 

During this coaching process, my clients discover things about themselves they didn't know.  Whether it be weight loss, improved sleep, overcoming challenging feelings, situations, relationships or some other area of their life they want to nourish, I hold a non-judgemental space and provide a targeted health plan for clients to discover their best selves and rise into their fully nourished spirits.

Holistic health and wellness coaching is for you if you are flexible, curious, and open to new concepts, ideas and information— ready to make positive change and committed to your well being!

After having numerous health issues which began in October of 2018 I decided to seek help from Cathy.. We know each other from Yoga and I wanted her advice on issues I was having.

I was physically, emotionally and mentally exhausted from no one in the medical field providing me with answers.

The sessions have improved my overall sense of well-being. I was very impatient but Cathy calmed me every step of the way. She has always encouraged me and assured me I would get better, but it would take time.

I am feeling better now. Still working on a full recovery. Every day I have small victories which I know are helping me get better.

The change in my diet has been rewarding. It isn’t a weight loss diet but one that has helped me to make better choices and eat healthy.
From this program I know that it is up to me to help myself and make the difference.

Our sessions have been remarkable. Each and everyone has helped me. I’ve laughed, cried, been frustrated and angry. You have brought me to a place of well-being and helped me through even when I was at my lowest point.

My coach is wonderful. Shes gentle, kind, caring, a great listener, compassionate, gives of her time freely when needed and encouraging. She has always been in my corner cheering me on.

I would recommend Cathy to anyone who is seeking a life change or when conventional medicine doesn’t have the answers. She has my highest recommendation and it has been a pleasure to work with her.

Cathy and I crossed paths last year at a networking event. I was struck immediately by her gentle sincerity regarding health despite my usual skepticism regarding “health coaching.” Something about Cathy’s approach led me to try a consultation. My minor health issues are largely limited to a desire to get into better shape and lose some weight. She immediately told me that a “diet” was not the answer and that a more holistic perspective on wellness was a more effective path.

Now, six months later I find myself weighing less and progressing quickly toward my goal. I also have a new perspective on health, diet and wellness in general that I sense will be durable. This was achieved not through a strict regimen but rather through a process of conversation and directed shifts in attitude. Cathy did not utilize a preset formula but rather got to know me as an individual and then designed an accessible strategy that fit my specific needs.

Her techniques are as much art as they are science. Nourished Spirit has helped me and continues to help me. My recommendation of Cathy Bakker and my gratitude are unqualified.
