Leah Canale, CHC

Leah is a certified Health & Wellness Coach who we are very excited to be working with to help our patients reach their goals. She was raised with the awareness of the human body as a whole system, working together in unison and learned from a young age that the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual parts of ourselves are equally important and greatly influence one another.  Leah describes struggling for years with severe health issues and food sensitivities. She feels her decision to become a Health Coach came naturally from her desire to help others navigate through their own health concerns.  “I want to help others transform their goals into actions and live a happy, healthy life!

Members who joint Evolve Direct Primary Care use her services for 30 days at no charge and then can sign up for discounted ongoing health coaching. You can learn more about what Leah does on her website, Quintessential Health Coach.
