Frequently Asked Questions
1.) What is a Health Coach?
A Health Coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority who helps others to feel their best through individualized food and lifestyle changes that meet their unique needs and health goals. They will keep clients motivated and hold them accountable in their efforts to live healthier lives, and are highly-educated in the latest health, nutrition, and exercise research. They are expertly trained in the strategies needed for cultivating optimal well-being, and are able to bring it all into a supportive, approachable, one-on-one relationship.
2.) Are all Health Coaching sessions held in person?
I hold 1-hour health coaching sessions in person, over the phone, and on Skype depending on your location, schedule and preference. I am also available to work with different time zones.
3.) What does a typical Health Coaching session look like?
Each session, we will discuss any challenges you are facing, changes you’d like to see, and health goals you want to achieve. I will work with you to develop a personalized plan that addresses these goals, and together we will come up with the steps in achieving them. I will do the work and research on my end (including weekly check-ins between sessions, providing helpful material/information, healthy recipes, etc.) and you will work on the 1-3 attainable goals we set together each session. We will set long-term goals ("big picture" goals), and work towards reaching those over the course of the program.
4.) What is included in the program?
Aside from our 1-on-1 meetings, you will receive meal planning tips, healthy and delicious recipes that cater to your specific needs/preferences, a “pantry makeover” (as requested), a health food store tour (as requested), helpful reading material & podcast recommendations, ingredients education, and 24/7 support from me as your coach.
