What is Health & Wellness Coaching

Wellness coaching is like “mental fitness” –  it’s about creating a safe, judgment-free space to stretch and grow your mental and emotional state for the betterment of your health and well-being.

Partnering with a coach can be the key to unlocking your potential when you feel stuck in patterns that aren’t serving you. It offers a fresh perspective and new ways to achieve your wellness goals you might find hard to tackle alone.

As your partner in health, I’ll help you see yourself through the lens of self-love, gratitude, and self-compassion so you can dream big and design the life you deserve to live!

I specialize in weight loss/weight maintenance & improving your relationship with your body and food, time management, organization, and finding the motivation to make livable, sustainable change while enjoying your life to the fullest. 

You can count on me to be the accountability partner in whatever way works best for YOU, so you can stay out of your own way!

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 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, and foster shifts in thinking that reveal fresh perspectives and provide accountability.

We will be embarking on this journey together…you provide the destination, and I provide the navigation!
