As an ADAPT Certified Functional Health Coach, my coaching is informed by functional medicine and ancestral health principles.
I do not diagnose illness or prescribe treatment, but I can guide you in implementing established functional medicine and/or nutrition-based protocols.
My approach to coaching combines motivational interviewing, positive psychology, and strengths-based strategies to help you initiate lasting lifestyle changes.
I can work in collaboration with your healthcare provider – as well as independently – to help you meet your wellness goals.
Following are a few areas I specialize in:

Johnny Cordova is an incredible health coach! I started working with Johnny because I was having trouble sleeping through the night and even though I knew it had to do with my diet, I couldn’t figure out how to get my eating on the right track. In addition, Johnny helped me with my business in terms of my goals and what I needed to do to establish my business. Through working with Johnny, I figured out the root cause of my problems and how to move forward. Johnny accomplished this by enabling me to figure out the answers for myself, which I feel is very effective! In my interaction with Johnny, I found him to be very present, to be skillful at asking me the right questions and to provide non-judgmental support. After working with Johnny for a few months, I have been able to sleep through the night and make progress with my business. I would highly recommend Johnny Cordova as a health coach!

I have been so impressed with the work Johnny has done with me. From our first session I felt like he was a natural! He has really helped me with getting some clarity with setting goals to achieve markers in my career. His insight has helped me in areas of resolution that I could not see on my own, but have been simple and achievable with his guidance. I look forward to our meeting every week. It feels really great to know that someone is honestly listening and caring and helping me achieve. I actually think that this might be what people look for in therapy but don’t really get. Thanks Johnny!!

For the last six months Johnny has been my health coach and he has supported me on my journey to health. My relationship with food has always been difficult and I have spent a lot of time trying to sort it out. Unfortunately my progress over the years has been slow and I consider myself to be a difficult case.
Johnny’s attitude towards my struggle with food has really impressed me. He is very patient, wise and understanding – even when I am off track or experimenting with unconventional tools, tricks and hacks to keep my diet on track. He has always been very present with me – without expectations or attachment to outcomes. This is a rare quality and I believe it comes from his decades of deep meditation.
Over the last six months Johnny has encouraged me to develop a clear vision for my health goals and turn it into actionable steps. It sounds easy but it actually took me quite a long time partly because I was unaware of some key health principles. During one of our conversations Johnny made the connection between my symptoms and a specific weakness in my gut biome. I’d read about this condition but didn’t think it was relevant to me. He recommended an excellent book on the topic which has given me a lot of insight about how my body works and why my previous efforts failed.
Now I have a lot of clarity about what I need to do though I still benefit from Johnny’s long experience with Paleo living, his understanding of nutrition and his encouragement. Just the simple act of speaking weekly has made me much more accountable for my efforts and progress.
Johnny is a generous person and an excellent coach and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for individual help with their health and well-being.
