Hi, I'm Coach Stef! I am a lover of all things nature, reading, learning, yoga, and hiking, and with a passion for coaching! I have been in the healthcare space for many years, starting my career as a chiropractor specializing in functional neurology. After years in the field I realized I wanted to empower others to make lasting lifestyle and health changes without having to depend on me as a provider and knew that my passion was to shift into coaching, where I could truly hold space for others to heal from within and empower them to take control of their health. I started my coaching career as a certified neuro coach (what can I say, I absolutely love the brain!) and then became certified as a health and wellness coach working with individuals in chronic pain taking a holistic mind and body approach. When I was in my early 20s, I was battling some major health challenges and after years of trial and error, I learned to listen to my body and mind, to trust myself, and to know that I can heal from within. That is what inspired me to choose a career where I could authentically help others. And I am so thrilled to be a part of the mission at Lin Health!
My coaching style
I lead with empathy, compassion, and openness when coaching. I meet the members where they are at and support them in a way that feels authentic for both of us. I am inherently curious and will ask questions to explore different ways of thinking. I see each member as a teacher and offer a safe space to co-create a healing journey for each individual.

Lin Health has given me my life back. I struggled with daily chronic treatment resistant migraines and POTS for 8 years. My life was significantly affected as well as my husband's and children's. I started Lin Health and their pain repressing treatment in Jan/Feb and by April I was migraine free and also free from any POTS symptoms. I no longer take any medications for anything. My coach was the perfect match for me, always supporting me and meeting me where I was at.
The concept is solid, and the research is hard to dispute. Believing in the research is the most critical step. My pain has generally improved over 4 months from utterly debilitating to 60-80% better on most days. But it takes unavoidable work to chase your demons and recognize patterns that contribute. The Lin program makes it so easy. The most valuable part is my coach, who really cares and really helps. It is a journey, and we have to grow up and realize real improvement is a journey, and not a quick pill!
The access to the care kits and my coach. What I have learned regarding pain and the brains role in it all has been remarkable. I’ve learned through the kits and my coach that a bunch of my pain has been primary brain pain. It’s has given me hope when I was starting to feel really hopeless with it effecting so much of my life. I feel like I am getting my life back again. I would recommend this program to anyone that deals with pain.
My experience with Lin Health has been amazing. I truly have nothing to say for changes or improvements. The information and tools acquired through Lin Health has changed my life, and in more ways than just pain management/resolution. I have and will continue to recommend Lin Health for anyone who is looking to receive help with pain relief. But I honestly think the tools given here can impact people with other debilitating issues such as anxiety, depression, etc.
Fibromyalgia had overtaken my life. Having tried numerous things over the past 5 years and only getting worse, I was skeptical and nervous from the start. Upon meeting Lauren, my skepticism and nervousness dissipated. Lauren’s genuine sincerity and calming presence enabled me to trust and learn the process. I am more active, much happier, and off pain meds. I am able to live my life again! I gladly recommend Lauren and Lin Health to others.
Amazing program for chronic pain. They pull all the different modalities together to treat chronic pain, and the care kits in the app are simply amazing! Thorough, logical, professional, and excellently presented. My pain recovery coach is wonderful and his program is worth every penny!
I’ve tried other apps/books/programs to work on mind-body pain, but I think Lin may be the best. The program is well thought-out, with nuances for using the tools effectiveIy I haven’t seen before, as well as techniques that were new to me. And while the program is detailed, the instructions contain ideas and exercises that are practical and not as theoretical as others I’ve seen. And the coaching has been insightful and invaluable in ensuring I’m moving in the right direction.
Lin has made a HUGE and dramatic impact on my life. I went from being in chronic, severe pain to almost no pain. We’ve been able to learn a lot of root causes for why the pain flares as well, and it’s helped me significantly. I’m incredibly grateful for my coach especially. I most definitely would not have made such fast progress if it wasn’t for her helping me see things I would’ve missed on my own. I’ve been recommending it to a lot of my friends/family who are in pain and they are in awe of what a transformation I’ve had from it.
Injured in 2013; I suffered chronic back pain for a decade. The Lin Health approach surpasses other treatments I've tried to relieve pain. Lin Health has changed my relationship with pain so that I'm more mobile and healthy. Totally endorsed.
