Frequently Asked Questions
1. WHAT IS A HEALTH COACH?
"A Health Coach is a supportive mentor who helps clients feel their best through food and lifestyle changes and personalized one-on-one encouragement." -Institute for Integrative Nutrition
2. HOW DOES THE HEALTH COACHING PROCESS WORK?
Our first appointment will be a consultation where we go over your health history and discuss your goals. We meet every two weeks via video chat. Throughout our sessions, we will set clear goals, create action plans, discuss what is working and what’s not, and I’ll provide constant support and accountability.
3. ARE YOU CERTIFIED?
Yes! I studied with The Institute for Integrative Nutrition — the largest nutrition school in the world. Click here for more information about IIN.
4. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH A HEALTH COACH?
Coaches provide support and accountability to help people reach their goals. There is so much information out there, yet people struggle to create lasting change. A coach will bridge the gap to transformation.
5. IS HEALTH COACHING RIGHT FOR ME?
Anyone can benefit from health coaching! Many people come healthy who want to take a preventative approach. I really encourage this; it is much easier to prevent problems rather than trying to reverse. Others come to me with high stress levels, and find that once they address their stress and learn to manage it, many conditions or pains melt away.
6. WHY DO YOU OFFER A STRESS RELIEF CENTERED APPROACH?
I am passionate about stress relief because studies show that up to 90% of doctor visits are for a stress-related condition. Our medical system tends to treat health problems in an isolated way. If the underlying cause (likely stress) was treated, health conditions like hypertension, diabetes, or digestive issues could have been prevented. Click here for some resources for stress.
7. WHY DO YOU OFFER A 6 MONTH PROGRAM?
I offer a six-month program so that my clients have lasting results. My goal is to truly heal and transform people. Healing takes time. Six months also provide the client with the chance to practice newly learned disciplines with things that inevitably arise throughout the year (think vacations or holidays with family).
8. Who can hire you?
In addition to an individual hiring me for coaching, I do group coaching for spouses, friend groups, or any group of people ready to work on health goals and reducing stress together. Businesses like fitness studios and wellness centers frequently hire me to host workshops or group coaching for their clients. Corporate businesses also enjoy happier, more productive employees when offering individual or group coaching, or workshops as an employee benefit.
