I am a Wellness Blogger, Certified Holistic Health & Wellness Coach and Spiritual Interior Designer. I am passionate about sharing my experiences to empower individuals to shift their mindset, reclaim their power and live a life free of fear and full of love. I believe in the power of energy and the effect it has on our well-being. I work with individuals to elevate their spaces to elevate their lives!
I received my health coaching certification through The Institute of Integrative Nutrition, in New York City and my Reiki Level I + II through Nicole Rutsch Holistic Healing in New York City.
Before beginning my practice in wellness, I graduated from Michigan State University and worked in Human Resources. After a few years in Michigan, my dreams and ambitions took me to New York City, where I started working in the fashion industry. Although, I considered myself healthy because I exercised and ate fairly well, I was not getting enough sleep, I was obsessed with calorie counting and I was over exercising, leaving me anxious and feeling stressed all the time. The long hours, poor diet and anxiety took a toll on my body and my wellbeing.
While city lifestyle was fun, I started to feel the effects on my mind and body. In August 2015, I had a health scare that resulted in emergency brain surgery. From that moment, my life changed. Health and wellness became my number one priority.
While healing from surgery, I realized there was a missing puzzle piece to my recovery. I had a doctor (who saved my life and I am forever grateful for!), but it stopped there. I needed someone to teach me about proper nutrition and show me lifestyle techniques that could help me through this process. After doing research and looking for natural remedies to help me heal, I discovered the missing puzzle piece—health coaching.
I was inspired to become a health coach myself, with the goal of helping others gain control of their health, and help them heal from trauma related to health conditions.
In 2017, I launched The Healthy B! With my corporate background, I understand the demands of a career and the stress of balancing everyday responsibilities. With my own health journey, I understand the stress and anxiety of having a health trauma or a chronic health related issue. I also understand how confusing it can be to know what to eat and how to take care of yourself, in order to feel your best! What works for one person, may not work for another. It took me a long time to stop comparing myself to others, and to start living my own best life.
Throughout my healing journey one of the most powerful methods that helped me progress was energy healing. I was inspirited to become a reiki practitioner myself and tap into energies to heal my mind body and spirit.
For 3 years I worked as a Health Coach virtually supporting individuals to nourish their mind, body and soul to feel their best selfs. In August 2021, I launched my new business Spiritual Interior Design by Bethany Holmes. I am excited to bring this new method of healing into people lives though energy and intention.
I currently live in New York City with my Husband, Clark and our golden doodle, Charlie.
