Today’s guest is Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum, founder and CEO of the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy (FMCA). Dr. Scheinbaum earned a Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Fielding Graduate University where she specialized in positive psychology, cognitive behavior therapy, and mind-body medicine. Her innovative spirit led her to pioneer the use of neurofeedback in her role as director of a clinic for Attention Deficit Disorders. In 2013 she earned recognition as the first psychologist to become an Institute for Functional Medicine certified practitioner. She has taught courses in the psychology of eating, the psychology of well-being, and mind-body medicine in the master’s program in human nutrition and functional medicine at the University of Western States. Founding the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy has brought Dr. Scheinbaum’s career full circle. She has returned to her roots as an educator and is bringing innovative approaches to training students in the new, and rapidly growing, field of health coaching. In today’s episode, we discuss what led her to start a coaching academy at the age of 60, her mission for this practice, why she would love to see a health coach in every doctor’s office, and how coaches can step into the role of a behavior change specialist. Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum brings so much wisdom to this episode and we know you are going to love this conversation just as much as we did.
