Nutrition + Wellness Coaching
What is health + wellness coaching?
Health and wellness coaching combines evidence-based techniques from positive psychology and behavior change theories to help you build healthy habits and live a better quality of life. It is one of the most effective treatments for preventing and managing obesity, chronic disease, and depression/anxiety. Coaching helps you bridge the gap from where you are now to where you want to be through a client-led, action-focused process.
What do you get from coaching?
Regardless of your goals, coaching helps get you to a place of loving and caring for yourself. You will learn how to do the following:
Develop a wellness plan (body, mind, life satisfaction) that is personally tailored to your health needs and lifestyle.
Let go of harmful habits that are getting in your way of health and happiness.
Explore and address changes in all areas of your wellness so you can live a healthier lifestyle.
Build your confidence by focusing on your strengths and opportunities.
Identify your challenges and find solutions to overcome them.
Connect your well-being to your values so you can sustain lasting change.

WHAT TO EXPECT
My coaching program is completely personalized, but generally includes the following process:
BEFORE YOUR VISIT
You provide me with background information via an initial questionnaire before your first session so I'm well-informed of your past and present physical, mental, and overall wellness.
During your first 60-minute coaching session we’ll review your health concerns, work together to make a personal Wellness Vision, and set realistic and measurable 3-Month goals. We’ll explore your strengths, challenges, and key resources you need to reach your goals. The goal setting process is completely collaborative so you don’t have to worry about setting goals that you’re not ready to work on. At the end of the first session we’ll get started right away with creating behavioral goals to work on until your next meeting. I’ll provide you with any resources, tools, and education you may need to reach your goals.
FOLLOW UP SESSIONS
In subsequent 45-minute coaching sessions, we will review your goals, explore and resolve your challenges, create new opportunities to grow and build on your strengths. You’ll then have the opportunity to discuss any topic you’d like. We’ll finish the session by setting new goals for your next meeting.
HOW TO GET THE MOST OF OF YOUR SESSIONS
Remember that creating lasting behavioral change is a process that takes time. For this reason, I usually see my clients for a minimum of 3-months. The frequency of coaching depends on your unique needs and goals. Generally, more frequent sessions support a more intensive change process and often faster results. Weekly or bi-weekly is usually ideal for new clients. Keep in mind that the coaching agenda is client-generated and coach-supported. It is helpful if you come to each session with reflections, successes, and challenges from the prior week/s.
