My name is James D. Thompson BSN, RN, NC-BC, and I am a Transformative Nurse Coach.

Being a Registered Nurse for almost four years and now a certified Transformative Nurse Coach has taught me that every moment filled with doubt, anxiety or pressure can be used as a catalyst for a fresh start and a new outlook on life. Your road to optimal health and wellness begins here.

Let's Find Balance Together! 

A Bit About Me

From a young age, I knew I wanted to help others in a meaningful and healing way. I found my calling as a Registered Nurse, graduating from The Ohio State University in 2017. I have become board certified as a Nurse Coach, however, to be able to serve a larger population of people in a way that is more in alignment with my values, skills, and beliefs. 

I provide a comprehensive set of services rooted in holistic and integrative philosophy to help boost your confidence, understanding, and skillset, and I offer support as you navigate your health and wellness journey. I work with clients closely providing individualized, non-cookie-cutter services in order to achieve measurable and enjoyable results.*

I believe health is a life-long journey, cultivated by daily lifestyle practices and behaviors. Health and wellness is not attained by a magic pill or by anything of the sort. All humans have the right to it, and it is my privilege and honor to help you reclaim, cultivate, and optimize your's!

*Due to R.N. licensing restrictions I can currently only work with clients residing in the state of Ohio (pending implementation of OH's compact nursing license legislation).


Who Is This For?

No matter your background, current health state, occupation, or any other individual difference, Nurse Coaching will almost certainly benefit you in some way. As a Transformative Nurse Coach, my approach will be unique and innovative, and likely unlike any other coaching experience you may have had in the past.

With that being said, those who fall into certain populations of people will benefit from Nurse Coaching the most. 

  • Chronic Disease / Illness

  • Mental Health Instability

  • Low Motivation / Sense of Purposelessness

  • Anybody seeking Prevention of any of the above

  • Healthcare Professionals

  • High Performers - Athletes, Students, Executives, etc.

  • And especially, anyone seeking Assistance with Starting, Progressing, or Optimizing their Health and Wellness Journey

What To Expect?

What Does Nurse Coaching Look Like?

As a Transformative Nurse Coach, I will work closely with you to:

  • Co-create a safe, judgement-free, and empowering space where you can live and express as your true authentic self

  • Gain a holistic understanding of your current state and condition

  • Co-determine what exactly you want to gain from our sessions and achieve in your life

  • Assist you in creating goals that are clear, realistic, achievable, action-oriented, and enjoyable!

  • Act as a point of accountability for you in your health and wellness journey, yet while maintaining the understanding you are truly only accountable to yourself

  • Provide you with the highest degree of encouragement, support, and resources as you navigate obstacles, and celebrate your successes!

  • Co-create an individualized self-care and self-optimization plan addressing all facets of your health and wellbeing

“James did a great job at helping me with focusing on the positive changes I was making in my life.  He was able to ask questions to really make me think and gain confidence in myself. He was supportive and a wealth of holistic knowledge. I love that he would allow me space to talk things out, ask questions to help direct the conversation to help me come to my own conclusions. He is a great nurse coach and I would recommend him to a friend or family member!
