Tamara Golden is the owner/practitioner at the Abundant Life Centre for Healthy Living. She has been a registered nurse for 30 years, graduating from Roberts Wesleyan College with her BSN in 1989. Two decades later, as she watched the epidemic of lifestyle-induced, preventable chronic disease continue to rise throughout the United States, she discovered health coaching as a means to truly help her patients get and stay healthy, and earned certification as a health and wellness coach through Wellcoaches.
Working in a corporate wellness setting since 2010, she noticed that her clients had increasingly complex health concerns, and many patients were dissatisfied with their lack of results through standard medical practices. Knowing how the Creator designed our bodies with the amazing capacity to heal when given the proper care and support, she continued her education at the National Institute for Whole Health to better support her patients. Tamara graduated as a Whole Health Educator and patient advocate in 2016, and went on to earn her board certification as a Holistic Nurse in 2018. Her comprehensive training and whole-person focus enables her to give thorough, personalized support to her clients, helping them understand why they are not feeling well, what they can do to feel and function better, and how to put their health on ‘auto pilot’ through lifestyle support and healthy habits.
Tamara worked for 8 years as a corporate health and wellness coach in an employee wellness program before pursuing private practice. She understands the challenges that we all face in modern society when trying to live a healthy lifestyle that aligns with our divine design for health and wholeness. Her combination of professional experience and overcoming personal health challenges has made her a compassionate, empowering partner for those seeking to take control of their health. She has also worked several years as a health coach trainer for a top nationwide corporate health and wellness company, training dozens of nurses and medical providers in Motivational Interviewing and health coaching skills.
Tamara offers classes and workshops for churches and businesses, as well as individual and group health education and coaching, in person and virtually via video chat (Zoom meetings) and the Internet. She also provides continuing education courses for other National Board of Health and Wellness Coaching certified coaches.
Outside of her career, she enjoys time with her family on their “heavenly homestead” in historic Charlestown, NH, raising chickens for eggs and dairy goats for making therapeutic milk soaps and lotions. She loves to cook (for one or a crowd), do home improvement projects, and watch Hallmark movies.
