Frequently Asked Questions
A Health Coach is a wellness professional whose main goal is to guide clients to reach their health and wellness goals, whether that’s sleeping better, boosting energy, weight loss, stress management, and so much more.
Health Coaches play a pivotal role in the greater healthcare team, filling the void that is often left by doctors who don’t necessarily have time to provide nutrition and coaching guidance.
Health Coaches help their clients discover which foods and lifestyle choices makes them feel best. Most importantly, Health Coaches take a holistic approach to health, not just focusing on food, but also all the other areas of life that can support and nourish your overall health, such as career, spirituality, relationships, and environment.
While a Health Coach is trained in different aspects of health like nutrition protocols, fitness, and mindset techniques, a Personal Trainer is predominately trained in body mechanics and fitness only.
Nutrition, Career, Spirituality, Relationships and Environment.
I recommend face to face or over zoom for the best results, but if phone call is most effective for you I can make an exception.
Health Coaches are trained in a number of different areas related to health such as nutrition guidelines and research, behavior change patterns, and physical activity to give you a well-rounded way to make positive, lasting changes to your lifestyle.
When you’re having trouble reaching your health and life goals and need someone to help guide you to overall optimal health.
In a nutshell, after the initial consultation where we discuss your goals, your current struggles, and if we would be a good fit to work together, we start implementing small changes to your weekly routine and your daily life. During our weekly phone calls, we make a plan together on how you want to best put our discussion into action.
With small changes, reflection, honesty with yourself, and some work, we’ll change your patterns, create positive behaviors, and reach those goals.
I recommend starting with a 6 month program to help keep yourself accountable and to sustain life-long habits and goals.
The Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
We will start off with a consultation, where I will have you fill out a Health History form, then from there we will go over the areas that you would like to work on.
While some maintain their own practice, Registered Dieticians often work in conventional medical settings, such as hospitals and public health centers with doctors to help patients with serious health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer. Registered Dietitians are overseen by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and must therefore follow a certain set of guidelines in terms of the recommendations they can make to patients. While this ensures a certain level of standard practice, it leaves less room for individualized support and does not take into account the non-dietary aspects of life that facilitate or prevent healing (such as anxiety about work, lack of sleep or adequate hydration, or time for relaxation). Being in more conventional settings, RD’s are generally less able to provide ongoing support to patients, and their focus is more on disease-management and the elimination of symptoms rather than achieving a higher level of thriving in life.
Unfortunately, I do not.
The only difference is in price. You can do a month-to-month if you don’t want to commit to a 6 month program.
I’m currently accepting new clients, when I’m full I will put you on a waitlist.
I don’t recommend doing the program with a partner since you won’t be able to get the full benefit of the 50 minute session to work on your individual concerns. However, if you want to do the program alongside a friend or partner to have someone else help keep you accountable you can do so, but you will have to book individual sessions.
