What is Health Coaching

Health coaching is a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior change.  As a health coach, I help clients find the motivation and tools to achieve their health and wellness goals and bring their lives back into balance.

My Approach

I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, drawing on knowledge and experience gained from over 25 years of practice as a registered nurse and nurse practitioner.  Coaching is a natural extension of nursing practice.  My approach is always customized.  With an emphasis on healthy eating, managing stress, improving sleep and increasing activity, the core of my work is centered on forming new habits.   We will examine all areas of your life and how they interact to affect your health and well-being. I will partner with you and together we will set concrete, achievable goals.  I will provide you with the skills and tools to facilitate healthy behavior change and bring your life back into balance.  I create a safe, non-judgmental space for self-discovery as you progress through a journey of change. 

Coaching topics may include:

  • Healthier eating habits
  • More regular Fitness
  • Better sleep hygiene
  • Relaxation techniques to manage stress and anxiety
  • Improved Self-care

How does coaching work?

Each client receives a complementary 20 minute phone consultation before the initial coaching agreement is made.  A minimum of 3 months of coaching is recommended in order to experience the benefits of health coaching.  According to research, it takes a minimum of 3 months to develop a permanent change in habits.  See coaching packages for available options.


You complete a confidential wellness assessment

     Create the plan

Together we discuss the results of the assessment and create a customized        wellness plan for you.  You will leave the first session with a clear action plan and realistic goals that you can work on in a one or two week period of time.  All goals are SMART (specific, measurable, action-based, realistic and time-lined).

     Begin the change journey

Coaching sessions usually last 30 to 45 minutes, although the first session is typically a little longer.  Sessions occur once a week or once every other week.  They take place in person, over the phone or via Skype.  There is a structure to the coaching session, but you, the client, set the agenda.  During each session we discuss the previous week’s goals.  We brainstorm together to manage any challenges or obstacles, and savor the successes.  We then set new goals to work on for the next session.
