How does Health Coaching work?

What does peak wellness look like for you? That's probably a question other health professionals haven't asked you, and it might be something you've never asked yourself. So much of health care is actually "sick care." Health coaching does a lot of things differently than other health fields. For starters, we focus on health, not illness. This focus leads us to determine what works for you. We start with what's working and we build from there. We brainstorm. We use my expertise in wellness, and just as importantly we use your expertise in your own body. The end-game of coaching is building your self-efficacy. What does that mean exactly? It means building your confidence in your ability to lead a healthy life, whether your challenge is weight maintenance, stress management, physical activity, healthy eating, or how to manage a life-long disease. I coach using the WellCoaches model. It has a decade of testing behind it and uses for its inspiration the leading frameworks in positive psychology. My philosophy is to use what the research says works best for the vast majority of people. Into this, I infuse my personal passion and joy in coaching and connecting with individuals.

Group Sessions

Group health coaching is an effective and affordable way to get the support and motivation you need to make lasting health behavior changes in your life. In group coaching, we'll create personal wellness visions and goals, and we'll share our successes and learn from our challenges together. Just as group therapy is effective, group coaching provides powerful learning opportunities as you hear and relate to the visions, goals, and challenges of others in a supportive and affirming environment. Group rates are $35 per session per person. A package of twelve group sessions can be purchased for $378 per person, a 10% discount. Groups are small, approximately three - four people. Contact me if you are interested in joining a group or if you have a group in mind.
