About


Welcome to Well Mind Ways. I’m Susan Skinner, a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach, NBC- HWC, specializing in brain health (dementia prevention), meditation with mindful movement, and physical activity for adults 40+.

If you’ve experienced brain fog, memory lapses, and you just don’t feel as “sharp” as you used to, I’d like to help you regain your brain. Together, we will explore the best path for you to achieve goals related to healthy cognitive function, optimal physical performance, and clear mental focus.









Functional Medicine Health Coaches use Functional Medicine principles & positive psychology coaching techniques to:
  • Educate clients on health, lifestyle and wellbeing topics
  • Offer tools and accountability when clients implement new lifestyle changes
  • Motivate clients using positive psychology and mind/body techniques
  • Provide resources on dietary plans, and physical activity protocols
  • Lead clients through group coaching sessions on specific topics
  • Work directly with the client’s practitioner when appropriate
  • Celebrate successes and encourage progress

I offer 1:1 coaching sessions in person in Des Moines, IA, (or via Zoom online), Maintain Your Brain small group coaching, and Mindfulness Meditation in Des Moines, IA.
