Health & Wellness Coaching

What is Health & Wellness Coaching?

Life coaching in general is the practice of helping someone determine what they really, really want…then helping them to design their life around achieving it!  As a professional Wellness Coach, I will partner with you in a thought provoking and creative process to inspire you to maximize your potential to increase your health and well being.  Wellness coaching has been referred to as “mental fitness” and I like that term because at it’s core, coaching is about creating a safe, judgement free space to stretch and grow your mental and emotional state.  Working with a personal coach gives you the chance to see a fresh perspective and out of that perspective can grow new action steps and fresh ways to achieve your wellness goals that alone, you may not have seen.   As your wellness coach, I will be your partner on the journey toward identifying, clarifying and achieving your goals through awareness, design, curiosity and learning.  I’ll encourage you to blow the lid and sides off the box and dream big!!  I’ll be your accountability partner in whatever way works best for YOU and I’ll help you stay out of your own way!


Some of the common wellness objectives I specialize in are weight loss, weight maintenance, improving your relationship with your body and/or food, time management, organization and finding systems and motivation to make livable, sustainable change while enjoying your life to the fullest.   When feeling stuck in patterns that don’t serve us, partnering with a coach can be the key to unlocking the potential within to create the outcomes and personal change to set you on a path to thrive! 

Why Coaching?

Coaching Differs From Therapy, Consulting and Mentoring


Other service professions, like consulting and psychotherapy, are based on the wisdom and expertise of the professional. In coaching you—the client—are the expert.

My role as your Coach is to ask powerful questions, and communicate clearly to help you get to the heart of your desires in life, to act as a sounding board, provide objective assessment and observations, listen fully and actively, challenge your blind spots, foster shifts in thinking that reveal fresh perspectives and provide accountability. 

We will be embarking on this journey together….you are the driver and I’m holding the map!
