Michele King LCSWCertified Health Coach
I have a passion for health, but consider myself a “typical” person who sometimes struggles with making the best wellness choices in a busy, stressful world – even though I know what I SHOULD do. But I’m also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has spent my career helping others and working to improve the lives of those I encounter. As a Certified Health Coach, I bring together my long time interest in nutrition and wellness practices with my skills as a licensed clinician to help you meet your goals and live a life that brings you energy, happiness and health.
I live in beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina where I’ve been for the past 18 years after relocating from Long Island, NY – yes I’m a converted southern girl and loving it! I share my life with my wonderful husband Jon, our two loving pups and amazing extended family and friends. Through my social work career I’ve worked in the field of disabilities, mental health and for the majority of my career – school social work. Working with children and families to help them develop coping skills, connect with resources and recognize their strengths has been a beautiful, challenging and insightful experience in every way. I’ve also struggled with watching our youth (and adults for that matter!) get more and more overweight, spend less time outside and more time on screens, and struggle with increased health challenges like asthma, diabetes, allergies, mental health disorders and fatigue.
I’ve started this practice because I’m truly concerned for you, for families – for ALL of us! I believe it’s critical we find ways to manage stress, incorporate healthy, nutritious meals in our day, get moving more and practice loving ourselves through lasting wellness habits. As I mentioned earlier, my choices aren’t always the right thing for my body or mind – I’m human! But I am constantly setting new goals for myself, working towards my ideal life, and forgiving myself when I don’t get there exactly as planned. I’d love to help you along your personal journey.
