Recent studies show that working with a coach results in greater success than one could attain alone.

Coaching is a dynamic, supportive and co-creative partnership that fosters self-awareness and enables you to succeed in areas you have been unable to on your own. Health and wellness coaching often results in the motivation to take charge and improve all areas of wellness, including: physical fitness, nutrition, health risk, weight management, energy, stress management, and life satisfaction.

A good coach helps you move past the places you are stuck, find answers you didn't know you had, and gain the confidence you need to move forward towards your vision of health and well-being. Coaches provide the structure, accountability and support that can empower you to develop in ways you may not yet believe possible!

Wellness coaches promote healthy behavior change and assist clients to overcome resistance, achieve their personal wellness goals and become self-sufficient.


  • Are ready to make a change in at least one area of your life.
  • Want to lead a healthier, happier, and more balanced life.
  • Don't know how or where to start.
  • Are open to doing the work needed for self-awareness.
  • Are willing to take responsibility for your choices.
  • Have been unsuccessful on your own.

We start with a comprehensive wellness assessment and a plan for the coaching process, which is generally conducted on a weekly basis in person, by Skype or phone. During the first session, which usually lasts 45-90 minutes, we design a customized wellness 'vision,' goals for the next three-months, and your first week's goals. During each subsequent meeting, which typically runs 30-45 minutes, we review the previous week's goals, discuss any challenges, develop strategies, and set goals for the upcoming week.

During this process, you will also:

  • discover your core values
  • connect with your deepest motivators, and
  • develop your strengths.

Weekly sessions are recommended for at least three to four months to allow time for new habits to form and goals to be accomplished. Results depend in part on your willingness to commit and follow through with your goals. Most coaching clients exceed their initial expectations. Pricing depends on the number of sessions you choose and is discussed in your complimentary 30-minute consultation.

Group coaching offers many of the benefits of one-on-one coaching. But for some, group coaching can achieve more impact, more quickly and at a lower cost because it fosters the collective wisdom, accountability, and support of group members. The coach, as facilitator, partners with participants ~ individually and collectively ~ to encourage self-discovery; clarify values, wants, and needs; discover strengths; and inspire untapped potential. Group coaching works equally well among established work or personal groups and groups with individual members who don't know one another prior to forming the coaching group. For additional info, please contact me.

As your coach, I create a positive, non-judgmental environment and guide you to discover your own unique solutions. This approach encourages you to engage in more effective and sustainable behaviors; achieve an overall feeling of well-being ~ including a higher level of physical and mental health ~ and ultimately become self-sufficient.


Health Coaches are effective in helping people lose weight and live healthier lives.

Wellness coaches are health, fitness, and/or mental health professionals trained to apply the health-promoting principles and practices of behavioral psychology to enable clients to realize their full potential.

Most of us know what we need to do to be healthy, we just don't do it ~ for myriad reasons. Coaching provides the support, accountability and confidence you need to get and stay motivated to reach your goals.
