Betsy Ranum, RN, Integrative Health and Wellbeing Coach
Betsy Ranum is a Registered Nurse in the state of Minnesota, and an Integrative Nurse Coach since 2014. She is eligible to sit for board certification as Health and Wellness Coach and is entering her third year of the MA program in Integrative Health and Wellbeing Coaching at the University of Minnesota’s Center for Spirituality and Healing.
In addition to several years of incorporating coaching into integrative nursing practice, Betsy worked as a coach in her own private practice for two years and interned as an on-site health coach at wellness industry leader Virgin Pulse in the spring of 2019.
Betsy’s coaching style is deeply holistic and integrative. Well-versed in conventional and complementary healing approaches, she understands health and wellbeing as multidimensional: fully encompassing mind, body, spirit, relationships, culture, institutions, environment, energy fields. She works with virtually any topic related to a broader sense of holistic wellbeing (creativity, career, boundaries, activism, energy, spirituality, joy...just to name a few), as well as more traditional health coaching concerns (stress management, movement and exercise, food and diet, disease management and prevention).
Betsy loves meeting individuals exactly where they are and learning from their unique life stories and experience. She partners with clients to evoke their inner wisdom to solve problems and expand their vision of all that is possible.
Betsy’s background is in integrative and community mental health, and she’s trained in in relaxation and awareness practices, breath work, hypnosis, biofeedback, and other mind-body modalities. She has years of experience sharing these techniques with people at all levels and stages of illness, health, and wellness—woo-woo lovers and skeptics alike! She’s worked in neuroscience-driven integrative psychiatry practice; mental health crisis settings; supportive housing for formerly homeless, incarcerated and institutionalized individuals with severe and persistent mental illness in NYC and the Twin Cities. She’s also worked and volunteered in home health care, housing for people living with HIV, a public clinic in Nicaragua, the Lower East Side Harm Reduction Center, and the MN Transgender Health Coalition.
