Amy Citron is a Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach, a Certified Reiki Practitioner, and holds a BA in Psychology. She has traveled extensively, attending various spiritual retreats and health seminars. These experiences have afforded her a well rounded, multi-perspective understanding of how to best transform one’s life and achieve one’s individual goals. Amy is the proud mother of three grown children. When one of her children developed a rare neurological illness, she began her quest for answers. She and her son traveled around the country, to every doctor, chiropractor and new age healer they thought might be able to help. It was not until they came upon a functional medicine practitioner that they realized this was the path to true healing.
Functional medicine addresses the root cause of disease by determining how and why illness occurs for each individual. Amy found functional medicine so intriguing that she dedicated the next two years of study to learn more about this approach to healing, and she received her certification from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy. Using her new knowledge, she began to heal herself and those around her by simply nourishing the body and mind. The function of a health coach is to help guide and motivate individuals to live up to their health goals and improve their lifestyles based on their true values. Amy specializes in synchronizing the mind, body, and soul to create a healthier, happier, more balanced version of her clients.
At Evolve, Amy’s role is to help individuals easily adhere to a gradual life-style change, and to become the best possible version of themselves. Health and lifestyle changes can be incredibly difficult to stick to on one’s own, therefore Amy makes it her priority to help each client find the best ways to achieve their personal health goals. It is her mission is to coach and support her clients to evolve to new levels of health and happiness!
Vincent Fitzgerald LCSW, Psychotherapist, Bowen Coach
We often believe our symptoms and behaviors are the result of character flaws. Subsequent guilt, and internal criticisms create anxiety and depression sure to hinder growth and create relationship dysfunction. Although behavior is a matter of choice, we often dismiss the influence early life family dynamics play in our ability to make choices, handle conflict, and bond with others. Through our transformative relationship, you will understand yourself as an individual with inherent ability to manage stress, resolve conflict, and strengthen bonds. You will learn the role family plays in the transmission of anxiety, dysfunctional relationship dynamics, and creation of negative behavioral patterns that can be replaced with positive ones. Transformation begins when you reach out, and only ends when you decide it does.
Rebecca 'Ria' Roth is a Certified Oneness Trainer and Oneness Blessing Giver, Wedding Officiant, Certified LIIFT Healer, Meditation Teacher, Holistic & Spiritual Coach, Associate Polarity Practitioner and Licensed Clinical Massage Therapist in private practice since 2000.
Ria discovered the healing arts and did a 3-year apprenticeship with a Taosit Coach, followed by an Associate Polarity Therapy program in 2000 and in 2006 received her degree in Clinical Massage Therapy. During her clinical program she also studied Reflexology, Shiatsu and AMNA – Japanese Deep Tissue. Ria was initiated as a Oneness Blessing Giver (OBG) in January of 2007 at the Onesness University in India. The Oneness Blessing (Deeksha) is a non-dogmatic transfer of energy that awakens a person’s unity consciousness, dissolving the sense of separation that can lead to anxiety, depression, division, judgment, and stress. It simultaneously awakens the centers of the brain that allow a person to naturally feel peace, calm, love, oneness and connectedness.
One of the most powerful and innovative modalities that Ria brings to Evolve Wellness is Liift (Life Improving Internal Focus Technique TM). This technique allows the client to access the defective or negative beliefs, traumas, and hurts that are blocking him/her from experiencing their full potential and happiest life. It is a fun, easy process that yields change in a short amount of time. Liift is gentle enough for children and adolescents, and can also be done long-distance. Ria is a three-time Winner of The Knot Best of Weddings! One of Ria’s great joys and passions is officiating ceremonies! Ria is absolutely thrilled to join Evolve Wellness and excited to share her work with a new community!
