a bit about me

Welcome! My name is Tonya Cossie-White, and I am very passionate about health, nutrition and overall wellness. I work with individuals, families, businesses, schools, and several organizations in the Houston Metropolitan and surrounding areas, as well as virtually with those in different states to promote wellness. I have a strong desire to meet my clients where they are at in their current health and educate them on simple, effective ways they can live healthier, happier lives.

I was inspired to learn more...

I became interested in health and nutrition several years ago after dealing with some of my own health issues. I suffered from high cholesterol, mild hypothyroidism, low vitamins D & B, and very poor quality of sleep. I decided then that it was time for me to do a mindset change and take control of my health and my family's!

During my time at the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute, I began to realize why Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude and Nutrition are really important factors that we should incorporate in our day to day. I am excited to share these life-changing skills with you. I am now a Master Certified Health Coach, Certified Life Coach, and my next step is Board Certification! 

I truly believe health and life coaching go hand-in-hand because before an individual can commit to work on health, they definitely have to work on their mental health.

I suffered for years with anxiety and I can't even count the endless panic attacks I've had along with trips to the ER. I am truly grateful that because I made so many changes to myself, my overall health improved.
